Dear Woodlawn Golf Club membership,
I wanted to give you all notice that I will be leaving NY and relocating back to the Pittsburgh area. After the sale of the casino, I came to the decision that the time was right to make the move. My last day of work will be August 27th and I should be moved by September 1st.
I would like to thank John O’Shea, Sean O’Sullivan & Tim Bell for getting me into this club. I know it was a hard sell to bring an Italian into an Irish club but very thankful that they did. This club is a fraternity of sorts as I’ve built some long lasting friendships here and very thankful to the membership for accepting me as one of theirs. I will say that having my name on the Club Championship trophy of one the oldest golf clubs in NY is something I will always cherish.
I will make a few more tourneys before I leave but in the fairness and keeping with the integrity of the brackets, I would ask that you move forward those who are scheduled to play me in both the handicap and the club championship brackets. I don’t think it would be fair to keep competing in these if I have no shot of being here until the end. I would rather have those that can advance have that shot and I will not take no for an answer.
Last but not least, I’d like to thank everyone for their hospitality towards me over the years and even though I am leaving (for good this time), I have made some great friends here in this club whom I will remember always.
