San Mateo City Firefighters' Association
2004 1921 Seagrave Golf Tournament
On September 13th 2004 35 golfers enjoyed themselves at Poplar Creek Golf Course in San Mateo with a spirited game of team scramble to raise restoration funds for the San Mateo Firefighters’ Association 1921 Seagrave fire engine. “Over $2000.00 was raised by this tournament,” said Jeff Barile, one of its organizers, “making it a very successful fundraiser!” The beautiful day added its success. The golfers’ fees included lunch made by Dominic’s restaurant and a door prize. The following prizes were awarded by the co-organizer, Mike Galvin: For the best team score of 4 under par went to Armando Muela, Rob Lindner, Steve Slaughter, and Gary Sowers. The second best team score of 3 under par went to: Wayne Shomaker, David Shomaker, Grover Blackburn, and Chris Young. The longest drive went to Gavin Long. The closest to the hole at 14 feet went to Wayne Shomaker.
