What a great turnout today for the RE/MAX Long Drive Qualifier & 2nd Annual Golfers Giving Back Event that was held at The Fairways Driving Range in Branford Connecticut.

 

 

 

A number of agents from our RE/MAX Alliance office volunteered their time to help out at the registration table and recording the distance of each of the six shots the golfers were allowed to take in their bid to qualify.

Donna, I bet that was a fun event to help out in.  Was Ed Silva, from Waterbury there?

George - It was great.  I've only tried playing golf once and my husband told me to stick to bowling. :)  I didn't see Ed there today unless he came before I got there.

Jeff - I can't wait for next year after having such a wonderful time today.  The event was a great success and I hope that one of the winners from our qualifier makes it to the World Finals.

Jerry - I was amazed at the length of the drives hit by some of the golfers yesterday.  You and I both would have to compete in the Seniors Division! :)

Hi Donna, that would have been an interesting event for sure, and NO George, I wasn't there. The way they bomb those balls is well beyond my abilities at this stage of my life, or ever for that matter. We have a hitter that occasionally plays on our course that has been a qualifier at the event in Vegas, but didn't win. hen he is playing and he uncorks that driver it's like watching a ball being shot out of a cannon for the distance he gets.
