13th Annual Golf Outing and Dinner June 10, 2006 06/20/2006

“Mother Nature” wasn't as cooperative as last year but the 13th Annual Greater Cincinnati OSU Alumni Club “ Buckeye Classic” Golf Outing & Dinner was a great if soggy day for everyone that participated. We originally had 17 groups for a total of 69 golfers signed up ( if all had played would have been best in 13 years of the outing, 12 golfers did not play (2 groups due to rain, the other due to a funeral). The final number of players golfing was 57 which is the 2nd best in 13 years of the outing. Of the groups there were 2 that registered in the 64 plus age group! 91 RSVP'd for dinner (most in the history of this event), actual attendees were around 82 ( may be best in event history).

Guests of note: Lewis Breeden, & John Simmons (2 retired Bengals players) , Buckeyeman ( Larry Lokai), Woody ( aka Roger Thomas)

Jack Park was our speaker this year and gave an amazing talk about the history of Buckeye football. Everyone there was astounded at the depth of his knowledge and his ability to have answers ready answers to virtually every question. Thanks Jack for a great talk!

Thanks to everyone that helped make the event a great success, donors, sponsors and participants. Because of you we are able to continue to build our scholarship endowment for future Buckeyes students from our area!
