golf outingAcademy members, their guests, and friends of the Academy enjoyed a great day on the links on June 10 at Maketewah Country Club. Twenty foursomes were on hand for the event, which featured a scramble format, longest drive and closest to the pin contests, and a hole-in-one contest with a chance to win a two-year lease on a Cadillac (unfortunately no one was able to claim the hole-in-one prize).

Congratulations to the first place foursome - Sean Givler, John Meinerding, Dane Donham, and Chris Burger - representing the Cincinnati Insurance Company and the second place foursome - Hal Chaudhary, MD; Salam Chaudhary; Riaz Chaudhary, MD; and Andy Law - one of the Beacon Orthopaedics' teams.

Special thanks to the Maketewah Country Club staff for producing such an enjoyable outing and to our generous sponsors.
