Brock brings home USCGFR gold

Jim Brock with USCGFR President Patrick Eakes and Tournament Chair Tom Shaver.MBGFR member Jim Brock claimed first place in the Heritage Flight at the recently concluded United States Canada Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians National Championships held in Blacksburg, Virginia.

Brock also teamed with Coronado Rotarian Bob Plumb for a second place finish in the tournameent's Partners competition.

The 29th Annual Championships, held September 23-27, were scheduled over three days at Blacksburg Country Club and the Pete Dye River Course at Virginia Tech. Rain washed out his year's final round so the tournament was shortened to two days.

In addition to challenging golf, dinners and other fellowship events were held and several tours were available to non-golfers.

Other MBGFR representatives at this year's tournament included Jim Pescatore and Mike Laughlin.

Pacific Grove Rotary will host the 30th annual USCGFR National Championships October 6-10, 2019. Planned tournament courses include Old Del Monte and Quail Lodge. Jim Pescatore and a number of other MBGFR members will be actively involved in planning this event so mark your calendars now! We want great attendance from MBGFR members!
