Tournament Champions

Of the 363 people who participated in the 2016 Quakerdale Winter Classic ProAm, 286 qualified to compete for Tournament Champion and started out with an even-Par 72 golf score. Of those who qualified, 39 were able to raise $50 or more to provide themselves the opportunity to reduce strokes on holes of their choice, and thus improve their golf score. Here’s how the top 39 ‘golfers’ finished:

24 players raised the minimum of $50 and were able to lower their score to a 1-under 71 and a tie for 16th place.

Six players raised at least $100 and were able to lower their score to a 2-under 70, tying for 10th place.

Three players raised $150 or more, lowered their score to a 3-under 69, and finished in 7th place.

Two players, Doug H (323) and RTalbot (325), both raised $200, lowered their score to a 4-under 68, and tied for 5th place.

Jim B (322) raised $250, lowered his score to a 5-under 67, and finished in 4th place.

This Year’s Trophy Winners are:

Third Place, and Second Runner-Up:
Dan Whitehead, Missionary Aviation Fellowship Pilot, Shell, Ecuador

We hope to see our Tournament Champions at the Award Desert so we can present them their trophies in person. I’m not sure how that will work for Dan Whitehead. He might have to make arrangements to have someone accept on his behalf. Even though he is a pilot, the 3,165 mile one-way flight might be a little too much!

Beginning a new year and reflecting on the past!

Share This:

Today I received a letter from a former employee of Quakerdale.   In the context of the letter he mentioned the value of Quakerdale to the kids that he served in his tenure.  I can attest that when people know you are from Quakerdale they come and they tell you how their life was impacted by it.  Maybe personally or a family member or friend who made important changes in their lif
e.   They received the things they needed to “become.”

I’ve had people on the street, at conferences, in campgrounds and through social media share their stories of growth.  It is inspiring!

How great it is to be a part of a place that helps people “become.”

As 2017 is about to begin  Quakerdale is seeing sweeping changes.  Are they changes we want?  Usually not, because we like good things to stay just like they are!

The nature of things is to change.  We must stretch beyond the comfort of where we are today in order to meet the calling of God for us tomorrow.

It is a bittersweet activity!

Today I reflect on the people we have interacted with for decades and I celebrate them!

  • I revel in their “good”ness for children!  I think of the miracles we have witnessed in lives changed.
  • I ponder how many generations of children and children’s children have been impacted by the changed lives through Quakerdale.
  • I celebrate the super individuals who have shared their lives by working at Quakerdale with our kids.
  • I consider how our workers made our world better.  How they made me better!

Let us celebrate what was and move forward into what will be in 2107 and never forget to share the good news of how Quakerdale has made a difference!  Even better let’s look forward with anticipation how God will  work through us in the years and decades to come!

Have a Merry Christmas and a great 2017 and I hope you will keep Quakerdale in your prayers!  God is doing a great work here!

In Christ,

Robert C. Talbot
