The 38th Annual Tryzub Golf Outing

by Eugene A. Luciw, J.D.

The 38th Annual Tryzub Golf OutingEighty golfers from no less than six States competed in the Ukrainian American Sport Center Tryzub’s annual golf outing. Limekiln Golf Club presented the players with tremendous conditions, enhanced with recent rains and perfect dry game day weather: a high blue sky and brilliant sunchine with warm, delicate breezes.

After golf, everyone gathered at nearby “Tryzubivka”  (Ukrainian American Sport Center) in Horsham, Pa. for an awards banquet. Eugene Luciw stood in for Tryzub president, Danylo Nysch and welcomed everyone, thanked them for participating, and reminded them about any number of exciting sporting, cultural and social events at Tryzub.

Joe Homik thanked his committee members -- Roman Jarymovych, Andrij Zajac, Orest Lesiuk, Bohdan Anniuk, Gene Luciw and Alex Woloschuk – for their hard work and dedication. , He then proceeded, along with Bohdan Anniuk, to announce the winners in a boisterous awards ceremony:
