Turkey 2014

Well, what a week we had - again! Asked to say a few words at our closing banquet on behalf of Rick Froh and the rest of the Executive Committee, I couldn't help but remark on yet another outstanding week in Belek. Those of us who have been returning year after year know just why we choose to do so. The sun, the great hotel, golf courses, food, friendship, and on, and on! We were pleased this year to welcome newcomers to the NATO Golf Club, and the Away Week fun. Jim and Shaun Edge, Rob and Paula Stewart and Nikki Hayes and Robert Adams - we hope you enjoyed joining the "regulars".


We all know that events like this are a huge undertaking for a few people, so once again our thanks to both Peter Riedel and Rainer Fahs. As President Rick Froh was unable to attend this year, Past President Tim Waugh stepped in throughout the week to keep all of us in line, on time and periodically in stitches!
