|The date for this first time event on November 12th seemed perfect; the Marine Corps celebrated their 232nd birthday November 10th, and the tournament was played on Veteran's Day.|
The citizens of Newport Beach, CA once again proved their generosity and willingness to support their Adopted Battalion, the 1st Battalion of the 1st Marine Regiment of the 1st Marine Division. The 1/1 Golf Tournament was a sell out with 144 golfers, and was followed by their hearty participation in the after golf cocktail hour and dinner, including the auction of several premium level prizes.
Distinguished guests and 1/1 Tournament players included MajGen Tom Waldhauser, Commanding General 1st Marine Division, and MajGen Jed Pearson, USMC(ret).
Tournament Chair was Mr. Dan Marcheano, Newport Beach resident and owner of the Arches restaurants, assisted by other members of the Newport Beach 1/1 Adoption Committee.
1/1 is currently deployed in Iraq, the Battalion's fourth deployment since the community of Newport Beach Adopted 1/1 in December 2003. A message from the Commanding Officer of 1/1, LtCol Jeff Conner, was read to all hands at the Opening Ceremony.
Proceeds from the 1/1 Golf Tournament will be used to support the Marines, sailors, and families of 1/1, both when the Battalion is deployed and when it's at Camp Pendleton.
The photographer for the images presented here is Rich Martin, City of Newport Beach Graphic & Printing, for which we are deeply grateful.
