Like last year, the weather was perfect for the 44 golfers who participated in the tournament at Foster Golf Course in Tukwila Washington.

Michael Yaguchi, NVC Commander, and Geri Lynne Egeler, NVC Foundation President, helped check the golfers in and collect the green fees.  After all the golfers were checked in, Geri Lynne drove around the course and took pictures as they golfed. She also took pictures during the Rib Steak Dinner and Award Presentations that followed the Tournament.

The tournament started out with Bryan Takeuchi, Past NVC Commander, teeing off a ball to honor and remember all the past Nisei Veteran golfers who participated in all the past tournaments from 1955 (first tournament held) to the present.

This year, the golfers were able to enjoy their Rib Steak Dinners prepared by Steve Louie, Shiz Kaku, and Terry Takeuchi, as well as the awards presentation after the tournament, at the NVC Memorial Hall.
