Early morning weather looked like it might put a damper on the outing, but as tee time approached, the clouds broke and the sun shined on a beautiful day of golf and fun.
“I think Lou had something to do with that,” said AASP/NJ Executive Director Charles Bryant with a smile. “I think he’s up there saying, ‘Oh no you don’t. No rain on this day!’”
Each year AASP/NJ holds the tournament in memory of Scoras, a member who passed away a few years ago, while raising money for the Lou Scoras Scholarship Fund. “People will always remember what Lou did for this industry,” Bryant adds. “They come out not only for Lou, but also, in support of the charity that bears his name.” Bryant praised the outing’s sponsors, in particular Premium Sponsors the Amato Agency, All American Auto Salvage and Hertz Rent-A-Car (Platinum); PPG, Akzo-Nobel Coatings and Enterprise Rent-A-Car (Gold); Toyota of Morristown (Silver) and Cosmo’s Ocean County Auto Wreckers (Bronze). “All of our sponsors were incredible,” Bryant says. “They continually contribute to our association and our members should support them wholeheartedly.” “We also want to thank former AASP/NJ President Lee Vetland of Lee’s Auto Body for doing a wonderful job with the Colonia Country Club our first year there,” Bryant adds. “And of course all of our golfers, who had a great time once again.”
