Team Building Through Golf, Food (You Can’t Miss it), Being a Dad


This week, we were host to a Davida business function, as our President Mike put it, ‘Team Building Through Golf‘.  They had a great time, and we definitely hope to have them back next year.  Everyone had a great time, the weather was great, and the views of the Olympic Mountains and Mount Rainier were scrumptious.  Some individuals worked on their golf game, while others got to experience the game for the first time.

Our President Mike really loves his family as he described here, in his fourth podcast, and while all kids are beautiful, BOTH the ‘Givens Girls‘ are completely beautiful.  Mike had mentioned both girls on Facebook or in a golf setting such as this.  We have been begging him for a photo of the two of them.  He provided.

More good reporting, from Todd Milles of the News Tribune, for those of you who cannot get enough local news,  ‘Thornton wins Northwest Open for 2nd time‘ (Wine Valley, in Walla Walla):

It wasn’t the start Sumner’s Brian Thornton wanted — but it did not prevent him from the desired finish at the sun-baked Northwest Open at Wine Valley Golf Club in Walla Walla.  Fending off challenges from Ephrata amateur Andrew Whalen, Thornton closed with a 4-under-par 68 on Wednesday to win the year’s final Northwest major championship by three strokes. 

Thornton’s 17-under 199 total tied Derek Barron’s tournament record, set last year on this same layout.  Whalen, a redshirt junior at Northwestern University, made a run with five back-nine birdies on his way to a final-round 65 for his best finish at this tournament.  It was Thornton’s fourth Northwest major title — and second Northwest Open crown. He became the first multiple winner of this event since Blaine’s Jeff Coston (2000, 2007).’  Article continues in full, here.
