golf tourney take 3

Last weekend, Jody organized the 3rd Annual Patrick Murphree Memorial Golf Tournament.  All the money raised funds a scholarship at the University of Alabama.  In 3 years, over $30,000 dollars has been deposited into the scholarship!

We ended up with 22 teams again who came out on one of the hotest days of the year to support the cause.  [We have lucked out in the 2 prior years with cooler we were due a scoarcher!]

Jody's team...


Scott, Shawn, Jody & Wesley

Jody's dad's team...


Luke, John B, Rusty & Tracy

My brother & family have moved back to the south, so he was able to join his high school friends this year...


Uncle Nicholas, Benji, Wes & J. Robert [3 of these were roomates their freshman year at Alabama...can you guess which one doesn't belong?  Maybe the Auburn shirt was a dead giveaway.]

Since my brother played, we got to spend some time with the cousins...


Callen & Banks

Mary Reese & Banks helped me register the golfers.  Then Banks had to leave for baseball practice.  We didn't tell him that it wasn't going to be your typical practice...

Banks Slip n Slide

They did batting practice with water balloons and sliding practice on slip-n-slides!  After looking at the pictures [thanks Cheryl], I think a good time was had by all!

After I got Owen settled for a nap with Debbie & Banks returned from practice, we grabbed a golf cart to check in on the action.  We met up with...


Uncle David [Patrick's Dad]

We were very fortunate to have Tony Chachere back to cook dinner for all the players...


Banks & Popsy checking out the beginnings of a huge pot of jambalaya.  Tony & crew treated all the golfers to fried catfish & jambalaya after they completed the tournament.  Everything was delicious & delightful!

During clean up, Owen found a cool site to play in...


He had a ball playing in all the ice after it was dumped from the coolers.

The older children cooled down with an ice fight in the sand trap...


Thanks to everyone who endured the heat to help make this tournament [and scholarship] a success!  We hope to see everyone & more back next year!
