Yeah, the DC one looks a bit more relaxed than what they're doing here in Richmond. The Country Club of Virginia is hosting the event and it's a sanctioned tourney. Still, I thought some of y'all out there might be interested. I actually prefer the smaller round robin kind of things anyway...especially for this fundraiser kind of deals.
Check out this place....
As a bit of an aside story, CCV (as it's known around here) hasn't always had the best "race" relations and reportedly denied membership to a young, prominent...and black attorney named L. Douglas Wilder.
Well, a few years passed, and Mr Wilder ran for, and become Virginia's first black governor. CCV has had a long standing practice of extending lifetime memberships to our governors...and, guess what, had to offer one to The Honorable L. Douglas Wilder.
The rumor still circulates...that he turned them down.
While Doug Wilder is no longer governor, he was recently elected Mayor of Richmond.
