Steve’s physical therapist from New Orleans, Troy Bourgeois, came in town for a couple of days to visit and to stretch out Steve. He’s happy with Steve’s flexibility, which makes us all happy.
This pose looks a little chip-n-daleish.

There was a pre-party for the tournament at a beautiful house overlooking the lake.

A friend of Dave Martins let us borrow his 4-wheeler golf cart with a monster sound system.

The day started early with a cannon and a flag raising.

This awesome fella bought a jersey at the auction. His granddaughter was due any minute. Her name will be Gleason, named after Steve. Pretty cool.

It was an amazing day except for the fact that Steve’s stepmom, Jackie, had a brain aneurism. Things are looking good for her now! but it was a horribly shocking news.

Thanks to everyone involved. Huge success at beautiful Black Rock.
