Appetizers and drinks were waiting for the travelers after golf in the Fireside Room followed by a delicious lunch catered by Englunds. The committee then raffled off over 50 prizes including golf, dining, and services.
The globe-trotters finally called it a day and not one suffered jet lag. Pilot Wayne Weckerlin welcomes 18ers aboard at their Around the World guest invitational golf tournament.
