The four-person, 18-hole scramble offered beautiful weather for the 24 teams who began the day with a continental breakfast followed with 18 holes of golf, special contests and raffles. Golfers were welcomed in for a buffet lunch by bagpiper Louis Arreola. Prizes were awarded to the first place men’s, women’s, and mixed teams.

The 6th Annual “Spirit of Scotty” Award was also awarded to Jim T. Orr posthumously at the outing. This award was accepted in his honor by his wife, Grace Orr. The “Spirit of Scotty”  Award is awarded to a deserving golfer who share the same spirit and dedication towards humanity in their community as Peter Morton, a lifetime Medical Center Volunteer, better known as “Scotty,” because of his Scottish heritage.
