DMA Golfers Again Win Silvermine Cup

On June 24th, golfers from DMA and the Senior Men’s Club of New Canaan (SMCNC) met at the Silvermine Golf Club to fight it out for the Silvermine Cup. SMCNC undertook a major recruitment effort this year in an effort to win back the cup. I am happy to report that DMA again emerged victorious in a very hard-fought match by the score of 15.5 to 14.5. DMA now leads the series 3 to 1.

My sincere appreciation for the terrific participation we continue to have for this annual event. There are a lot of good golfers among the DMA membership. When we get a good turnout of our best players, we have proven to be a tough team to beat. Our appreciation to the following members of the 2015 DMA golf team:

  • Tom Haack
  • Tom Lom
  • Jim Crane
  • Terry Brewer
  • Chris Filmer
  • Doug Campbell
  • Gunnar Edelstein

  • Austin Schraff
  • Ron Kahan
  • George Gilliam
  • David Mace
  • Peter Carnes
  • Spike Reed

The participants co-mingled for an enjoyable lunch after the match.

I expect next year’s match to be equally competitive so an early shout out to our best players about the importance of their participation in 2016. Again, our congratulations to the DMA team members for a good win and for their participation in another pleasant outing.

Enjoy the remainder of the summer.

Best regards,

Report on the 2014 Silvermine Challenge
by Denny Devere the DMA Team Captain

For those who missed my recap at a recent DMA meeting, the DMA – SMCNC (Senior Men’s Club of New Canaan) Golf Tournament was held at the Silvermine Golf Club on June 18, 2014. This is the third year in a row that this golf tournament between the two men’s organizations has been held. After losing the inaugural match in 2012, DMA has won the last two matches and the Silvermine Challenge trophy by identical 18.5 to 11.5 scores. Our own Terry Brewer won the Long Drive Contest for the second year in a row.

I am particularly grateful to the following players who willingly made themselves available to play on the DMA team:

  • Tom Haack
  • Jim Kelly
  • David Mace
  • Bob Baker
  • Peter Carnes
  • Alex Garnett
  • George Gilliam
  • Austin Schraff
  • Tom Hayne
  • Ron Kahan
  • Mike Brennan
  • Tom Reifenheiser
  • Kevin Monahan
  • Doug Campbell
  • Joe Holmes
  • Terry Brewer
  • Jim Crane
  • Fred Conze
  • Chris Filmer.

DMA has a strong golf team when our best players are able to participate. Last-minute cancellations were kept at a minimum which made my job as Captain much easier.

I am grateful as well to Alex Garnett – our Chief Talent Scout and Recruiter. Kudos to Ben Briggs who made time to travel around the course to cheer on the team.

Harvey Place, my counterpart at SMCNC, and I arranged to have the foursomes sit together which enhanced the interaction and camaraderie between the two groups. This is a spirited yet friendly competition. Hopefully, we can continue to schedule this annual golf tournament between DMA and SMCNC for many more years.

The series now stands at one victory for each team. I fully expect SMNC to field a stronger team next year in an attempt to win back the Silvermine Cup. As a result, we will need all of our best players to answer the call in 2014. The trophy and team members will be introduced at the first DMA meeting in September.

Enjoy the remainder of the summer!
