May 20, 2016:  Over 80 people came to play and enjoy dinner at Haggin Oaks for the SCBA’s Fourth Annual Golf Tournament.  At registration, orange polo shirts and hats were included with a goodie bag of items and lunch.  Throughout the course, sponsors provided a variety of items, drinks, and raffles, starting with massages and margaritas through golf towels, Ruth Chris dinner drawings, lip balm, and bottles of water or glasses of beer.  I was one of the witnesses for the Hole in One challenge and got to see some very fine drives… and duck for a few rogue slices.  Although a brief but sudden downpour ended a few rounds early, spirits were not dampened.  Under the Pavilion Tent, cocktail hour presented opportunities to chat, bid on silent auction items, buy door prize tickets, and watch the leaderboard.  A buffet dinner was complemented by the Res Ipsa Loquitor band (featured in this publication’s March/April 2015 issue), led by Bob Bale of Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood Campora, LLP. Sacramento Lawyer’s Editor-in-Chief Betsy Kimball even joined to harmonize with the band on Brown-Eyed Girl.
