What is the origin of the Sunny Shores Sea Camp Golf Tournament?

Falcon Batchelor, in 1980, was instrumental in founding Sunny Shores Sea Camp (SSSC) for cystic fibrosis. Early in 1990, Al Massena and Dana Munsey, both friends of Falcon, discussed hosting a golf tournament as an annual fund raiser for SSSC, and the first tournament was held that year. Falcon lost his battle to cystic fibrosis later that year, so in 1991, the tournament name was renamed, The Falcon Batchelor Memorial Golf Tournament to honor Falcon’s contribution.

In 2014, Dana Munsey, our beloved President, died after a life long struggle with Cystic Fibrosis. The 2016 Golf Tournament is named in Memory of Dana Munsey.
