October 2014

The 2014 TFA golf tournament was a big success in several ways. This year the tournament moved to a new golf course with new catering. On Saturday, Sept 6th we gathered with a total of 15 teams at the Oregon City Golf Club (www.ocgolfclub.com). Oregon City Golf Club is situated less than 20 miles south of Portland, OR on a hill with a wonderful view of Mt. Hood and surrounding area. This historic Oregon City golf course features 18 holes situated on more than 100 acres of gently rolling terrain, complimented by mature, tree-lined fairways. The weather was clear and hot and our players were eager to try out the new course.

Between the 15 teams, we had 6 TFA/Zidell teams, 4 vendor teams and 5 mixed TFA/vendor players. Only those teams that had a TFA or Zidell player were eligible for the Championship placements, but the low score vendor team was recognized with a prize.

Every tournament, a raffle is held with many great prizes donated by various sources, with the proceeds benefiting The Morrison Center, a charity TFA has supported for many years. The raffle this year was also a great success by raising $1,523 for The Morrison Center, and in addition Jay Zidell pledged to match the amount, making the total charity donation a total of $3,046!

Thank you to the golfers, and those that donated prizes for the raffle, for making this years tournament a great success!!!!
