Denton 1

Earle Denton was a long term member at Rio Pinar Country Club (since 1969) now Rio Pinar Golf Club .  He joined it the first day he was assigned here.  When George Ryan cleaned out his golf  locker after his death he found a few dozen balls and conceived the idea of giving Earle a golfing “21 gun” salute into the pond at hole #12.  George arranged a golf tournament and it was decided to make it a fundraiser for Earle’s favorite charity CFVMPF now known as  Veterans Memorial Lake Nona.  A number of folks signed up to play in this scramble Sunday afternoon March 20 for this tribute.  $1200.00 was collected and or donated for this event.  This photo depicts the salute with (from left to right) Randy Krizmanich, Rob Teegarden, Mike Motko, Scott Stambaugh , Dan Schyvinck.  Photo 2 shows George Ryan, Vinnie Oliveri, Carol Denton, Susan Denton observing the shootout.   In addition a Magnolia tree was planted and a plaque installed in honor of Earle L Denton at the tee by hole 17.
