Tahoe 7.0 Recap

The sun has set on Tahoe 7.0, and as usual, the weekend gathering of Old Bro's turned into a great time enjoyed by all.  This year, 13 Old Bro's made the trip, almost all repeat visitors, as once you've experienced this, you want to come back for more of the same.  Attendees gathered for the group photo below .....

MJ Harness, Nick Svetcoff, Jim Hester ..... down in front are Koda the Great Pyrenees and Greg Anicich,
up top holding the Bruin flag is Bill Harrison.  Photo by John Kohler, which explains why he's not in the shot. 

Festivities kicked off with Friday afternoon with a few adult beverages at the Beacon Bar & Grill, at Camp Richardson on the southwest shore of the Lake .....

notice all the empties in the foreground ..... they DID have help with those

Once the entire group arrived at the Lake, we headed out to dinner at the brand new Lodge at Edgewood, a fabulous new facility just north of the casinos on the Nevada side .....

Mezzo and Hester all smiles and suspiciously behaving themselves at the dinner table at the Lodge at Edgewood

Saturday morning another Old Bro Golf Championship was contested, once again at the beautiful Lake Tahoe Golf Club.  In a reversal of results from last year's event, MJ Harness edged John Kohler to take the title of "Low Bro".  Drew Kohler avenged last year's playoff loss with an undisputed third place finish to grab the bronze medal ..... 

FORE !!! ..... Old Bro golfers Lars, JK, MJ, Dr. Drew, Nick the Greek, Mezzo, and Bob looking very stylish 
on the 10th tee box amid the pine trees & mountains at Lake Tahoe GC ... at least we LOOK like we can play

Saturday evening the entire tribe retreated to Bill's house for BBQ'd shrimp and steaks, a few more glasses of wine, and a lot more laughs at each other's expense .....


Special thanks, as always, to congenial hosts John Kohler and Bill Harrison, who for
seven years now have opened their homes for an EpSig gathering of Old Bro's


Captain Harrison points the bow towards 
more adventure on Lake Tahoe 
Sunday it was boating out on the Lake, then over to Kohler Beach in the afternoon to relax, which is quite a bit smaller this year due to the fact that the Lake is up OVER SIX FEET from last year (what drought?) .... the weekend was capped off magnificently by the traditional salmon bake dinner from Chef Kohler .... followed by the dueling DJ's, Mezzo and Anicich, playing tunes from long ago, all of which Bill Schlichter knew all of the words to (how does he DO that?)

To sum it up, Tahoe 7.0 was another great weekend enjoyed by old friends in a beautiful setting, with great food & drink, great conversation, not so great golf, and much laughter.

We would love to see you there ....
