While the weather forecasts predicted thunderstorms all day, NSSA’s 17th Annual Golf Classic held at Sands Point Golf Club on July 27th was graced with sunny blue skies and not a drop of rain.

The event was so popular this year that we added a second start time and had *two* rounds of golf to accommodate our overflow of golfers. Thank you to people like Joe Longo, Joe Winters, Gerry Weldon and others who promoted the event and got us more registrations than ever before.
