Dalcorp Racing takes the green...the putting green, that is.

Last Friday, May 16th two of Dalcorp's finest represented us in the annual Don Montgomery Memorial Golf Tournament at Azusa Greens in Azusa, California. The once a year event has become a "must play" tournament for all the local heavy hitters as well as some out of state players, always producing some excellent scores. There's even a chance to pick up a little pocket change on the 13th hole by hitting a hole-in-one. Two years ago one lucky player did just that and put a cool $10,000.00 in his wallet! Our two "heavy hitters" (we're talking total poundage here), Pat "Pato" Selders and "Big Jim" Costanza teamed up with Big Jim's brother Gino and Mike McVey to try and bring home the trophy. They came up a little bit short of the winning score, but put up a nice 6 under par for the day and had a great time.

Afterwards, there is always a wonderful dinner, raffles, trophy presentations and, of course, lots of stories about the day's play. With the help of a lot of friends and family, Andy, Don's son, and his mom, "JoJo" put on a great event to raise money for Don's favorite charities and city programs. It was another awesome day to honor a great man put on by a wonderful family. Congratulations to the Montgomery family and to all who helped make the day such a success.

On May 17th, to the delight of many area residents and business ownders, The Monrovia Days Parade made it's way down Myrtle Ave. on a beautiful and warm Saturday morning. We always look forward to participating in the parade. This year we were asked to drive Mr. Chris Rich, one of Monrovia's school board members, and his family in Debbie's 1959 Series 62 Caddy. It was all good until the parade started and we were ready to go. No Chris Rich and family! It was the first parade we've ever done where our guest of honor didn't show up! That aside, we had a great time visiting with friends and enjoying the day. We want to thank the Monrovia Days Parade committee for including us in the event again this year. Great job, guys and gals!

"Big Jim" was still smiling at the end of the day.

Total concentration...Pato letting in all hang out!
...that ball might STILL be rolling...what a drive, Pato!
....this cart needs some sponsor stickers.
Never a doubt...

Big Jim with his "race face" on...

Still using his "Dead Eye" putter developed in the
70's by Joe Nocita, Pato was sinking putts
from every distance!

Mike, Gino, Pato and Big Jim...they haven't missed
many meals lately!
Always out doing good deeds, Andy buys a round of
drinks for his gang, Brad Bateson and Mike Pollard from
the drink lady, Debbie. He learned from the best...his dad, Don.
