Forty-six golfers (including 8 parents, 1 student, 8 alumni, 8 alumni parents, 2 staff, and 19 friends) participated in the 14th Outreach Scholarship golf tournament held at the Chiba Birdie Club. Once again, we were blessed with fine spring weather, and everybody enjoyed golfing on the beautiful course abundant with blooming flowers.
Yushi Katayama '96 took home the winning cup with a net score of 70.8 (gross 90). In second through fifth places were alumni parents Erik Svalander (net 72.8, gross 86), Bret Dandoy (net 73.0, gross 79), Tim Latimore (net 73.2, gross 78), and Mary Katayama (net 73.6, gross 88). Our only student participant seventh grader Riki O. played impressively and came in sixth with a net score of 73.8 (gross 87).
Many thanks go to the participants, the helpers, and the tournament sponsors who made the day a great success--¥1,963,250 was raised in support of the Outreach Scholarship Program. Special thanks to tournament host Chiba Birdie Club and to Kengo Aoshima '14, Aoshima family, and Ishiyama family for collecting lots of prizes. You can still support the Outreach Scholarship Program by going to Making A Gift.
We look forward to seeing many more Nishimachi families (parents and students) at the 15th anniversary tournament next year, Saturday, May 26, 2018!
