The Arc of Schuyler’s 15th annual golf tournament, held on Friday, August 21st at Watkins Glen Golf Course, netted more than $22,000 to support programs and services provided to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
Completing the tournament in first place was the Watkins & Nichols Team – Bill Spencer, Rocco Scaptura, John Robinson, and Josh Robinson. The team is the second to be added to a new Arc Golf Tournament Champions plaque, created in honor of Dave and Marilyn Dalrymple. The Arc recognized the Dalrymples for the role they have played in the success of the tournament over the years and for their ongoing outstanding support. The plaque hangs at the Watkins Glen Golf Course club house.
The second place team included Chris Schoemaker, Jode Schoemaker, Jared Hammond, and Michael Stamp sponsored by Hill & Markes and the third place team was Lisa and Donald Crouch and Milt and Wendy Brooks.
Winners of the contests held on the course were: Josh Robinson for men’s longest drive, Colin Scott for men’s closest-to-the-pin, and Lisa Crouch for both women’s longest drive and women’s closest-to-the-pin. Dave Reynolds won the 50/50 raffle prize and generously donated $100 back to The Arc.

Birdie Sponsors were Empire Access, Garage Floor Coating of NY, Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel, and Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards. These sponsors and more than 90 other businesses, wineries, restaurants, and retail stores generously contributed through sponsorship or product donations.
