H.O.G. 2016 a Big Success

by Jane Ahrens


46th H.O.G. Tournament: Sunday, September 4, 2016


The 46th H.O.G. Tournament, held at the Fishers Island Club to benefit the Island Health Project (IHP), was a big success this year. Despite threats of a visit from Hermine, there was a record turnout and everyone enjoyed the day under beautiful blue skies and a bit of a breeze. Net proceeds from the tournament support medical care for all Fishers Island residents and visitors. Co-chairs this year were Bob and Margaret Warden and many teams of six dressed up and had a lot of fun!

Golfers and supporters of IHP arrived for the 9:45 kick-off parade at the Big Club before the golf teams hit the course. People shopped for H.O.G. merchandise before the parade began – and all day.

“We were pleased that the H.O.G. was able to win the battle against Hurricane Hermine and keep the storm from disrupting the festivities.  Most importantly, we want to thank  all the staff at the Club from Dan Colvin and his golf shop group, to Pat and Stefan Schiestl and Paul Giles for all the food and organization, and to Donnie Beck and all his men who work so hard on the course!  And none of the day would be as much fun without all the volunteers on the holes who made this year’s H.O.G. another successful event. The Island Health Project is most grateful to all who contributed in so many ways.”
