What a great tournament we just had in Albuquerque. Everything you could want was there - perfect weather, courses as beautiful as they were challenging, a tasty variety of great food, and (most importantly) a gathering of great Rotary friends. Congratulations to tournament chair Jim Easley and his team for their great success as hosts!
It was my first visit to New Mexico, but I am sure to return soon. The memories of beautiful sunrises over the mountains and clear dark skies that provided the chance to see many stars not visible in cities will stay with me for a long time. Those of you who stayed a few extra days also got to see skies filled with hot air balloons at the International Balloon Fiesta.
I am already looking forward to next year's tournament in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. This is a return trip to a venue that put on a great tournament once before. Mark your calendar now for September 11-15, 2017. You don't want to miss the chance to make more memories with your Rotarian golfing friends!
