VP Trish: Falcon Camaraderie

This is our logo.

We all know that friends are the family we choose! Our Falcon family is indeed the family we have chosen.

Camaraderie: the feeling of closeness and friendship that exists between companions. Synonyms: brotherhood, community, companionship, sociability.

National events provide the opportunity for us to gather with those who don’t live near to us and with whom we have formed friendships with so many years ago (or possibly recently!). While many of us connect on social media, it simply isn’t the same.

Registration opened for the golf over the weekend. I am so looking forward to heading to Erie. Not only is Erie a place I truly enjoy, getting together with Members makes it even more special.

The Tournament starts on Thursday, August 12. As has been mentioned, this is a two-day National Golf Tournament with one day being a two-person scramble and the other day being individual play.

The Hammer Open will take place on Wednesday, August 11.

Nest 610 has made many plans for the National Golf Tournament. I have met with Tournament Chair Greg Wieser. Druh Greg has lots of experience with golf tournaments as does Nest 610. I am sure this is going to be a fabulous event!


Golf Lingo:

Army Golf: Like a marching rhythm: Left-right-left, in the game of golf, it means hitting the ball out of bounds to the left then to the right the next time.

  • Can: Refers to the cup on the green.
  • Dog Track (or goat hill): When the course is in poor condition.
  • Fly the Green: A shot that goes over the green.
  • Hacker: A mediocre or inexperienced golfer.
  • Rainmaker: A golf shot with a very high trajectory.
  • Victory Lap: When the putt circles the rim of the cup before dropping in.

I hear folks have booked rooms for the Tournament and a few have registered. Looks like Members are ready to hit the links!
