The 37th Annual Tryzub Golf Outing
by Eugene A. Luciw, J.D.
On June 15, another gorgeous Saturday greeted the 86 golfers that had gathered at Limekiln Golf Club from no less than five States, to participate in the Ukrainian American Sport Center Tryzub’s annual golf outing. The rain had made the course quite challenging, as the grass in the rough had become quite gnarly and the ball had very little roll along the damp fairways.
“Our goal is to create and to preserve friendship and social and professional networking in our [Ukrainian] community …, said tournament director Joe Homick. “Many of us have become lifelong friends through tournaments such as this: we play in leagues as teams, we travel to more distant golf venues together and genuinely enjoy each other’s company,” added Homick.
After golf, everyone gathered at nearby “Tryzubivka” (Ukrainian American Sport Center) in Horsham, Pa. for an awards banquet. Tryzub president, , Danylo Nysch, welcomed everyone, thanked them for participating, and reminded them about any number of exciting sporting, cultural and social events at Tryzub.
Joe Homik thanked his committee members -- Roman Jarymovych, Andrij Zajac, Orest Lesiuk, Bohdan Anniuk, George Luciw and Alex Woloschuk – for their hard work and dedication. , He then proceeded, along with Bohdan Anniuk, to announce the winners in a boisterous awards ceremony.
The sponsor for this year’s event was perennial supporter, Fletcher-Nasevich Funeral Home. Tryzub also thanks the Ukrainian Selfreliance Federal Credit Union of Philadelphia for donating a Calloway driver to the prize table.
Each player received a generous and thoughtful door prize and a popular 50/50 raffle replenished the pool for next year’s tournament with $510. Naturally, an equal amount went to the winner of the draw.
Next year’s golf tournament will take place in June at a date to be announced. Check Tryzub’s website for additional details and for upcoming events: www.tryzub.org.
