The format of the outing, a scramble allowing
teams to play the best golf shot of the foursome
encouraged the participation of family and
friends who had limited golf skill and to include
wives, girlfriends and children in the event.

party with friends and family featuring the family
band, lead by family member Father Gunn, who
passed away in 2011.
The 2012 Poppa Lou is scheduled to be a
celebration of all those who have had an influence
on teaching the value of friendship and family, and
special tribute to Father Fran who meant so much
to so many and loved the Poppa Lou and the game
