There Must Be Something in the Water

ahoe South has pristine nature, endless outdoor activities, non-stop entertainment for days, and one-ofa-kind locals. It’s so unlike any place, it’s almost unexplainable. In Tahoe, people leave their comfort zones behind to do things they never imagined. There can only be one explanation: “There Must Be Something in the Water.” You’ll see Tahoe South at its best with some of the most famous Hollywood celebrities, Hall of Famers, and sports legends in town this week. Clearly there is something in the water and it’s at “America’s Best Lake” (USA Today) during the 30th annual American Century Championship. We invite visitors to dive in the lake, soar above it, hike and bike around it, find a speakeasy, discover a new favorite brewery, take a culinary adventure, tempt Lady Luck, and dance the night away. Share and tag us in your explorations: @ACChampionship, #ACCGolf, @TahoeSouth, #TahoeSouth. Thank you to our partners: NBC Sports, American Century Investments, and to our volunteers - big shout out to the 30th being the “Year of the Volunteer” who make this tournament possible. To all of the fans, a warm welcome. Enjoy the tournament, Tahoe South, and the water!

John McLaughlin President & CEO

elcome to the 2019 American Century Championship, which is poised to become the most memorable yet. This marks the 30th anniversary of this world-famous tournament. We expect to attract more spectators than ever to the stunning shores of Lake Tahoe to experience the excitement and natural beauty that defines this event. Although the event’s spotlight traditionally falls on celebrities, the true stars of the American Century Championship are the sponsors, volunteers, media, and participants. Beyond increasing awareness for our resort and the tournament, they are critical to raising funds for both local and national charities. The South Tahoe communities at large also deserves high praise, including the residents, businesses, and government agencies that have shown unwavering support for the event throughout the years. In addition, we’d like to wholeheartedly thank our fans as well as our partners, American Century Investments, NBC Sports, and Lake Tahoe Authority, for their support in making the ACC the one-of-a-kind event that it is today. Just across from the golf course sits The Lodge at Edgewood Tahoe, which is no longer a well-kept secret among select luxury travelers. In fact, this mountain-modern marvel has caught the attention of the travel industry’s top publications and organizations. Now in its third year of operation, The Lodge was voted No. 1 Resort Hotel in the U.S. by Travel + Leisure readers in 2018 and was named the 2019 Hotel of the Year for USA & Canada by Preferred Hotels & Resorts. Edgewood Tahoe is imbued with a unique summertime vibrancy that manifests during the ACC. However, the year-round resort takes on a distinctive character in the spring, fall and winter thanks to our ever-changing alpine climate and assortment of activities and events. We invite you to come back and stay with us throughout the year, so you can experience the seasons of Edgewood firsthand. Welcome To Edgewood Tahoe.

“I came up from, you know, not a lot of money so for me it was all about savings initially. And, I got pretty grounded parents who helped along the way and it just made everything easier. It’s nice having people that you trust and love to help you go through it. And then, I’m not trying to look for the quick dollar left and right. There are things to invest in, but we want a lot of data and a lot of years based on that, before we do.”

“The things I invest in are things I either personally use or have an interest in or have researched. It’s got to be authentic. I’ve done some ads in the past that don’t really mesh with my lifestyle. At this point it’s all about quality of life. I’ve learned a lot over the years through mistakes—I think as we all do—and experience, and the things that I’m a part of and invest in are things that I believe in and use in my everyday life or are for the betterment of the planet.”

“I invested in a real estate deal that was a big deal. But it never got off the ground. It really taught me that just because someone has a great idea, it doesn’t mean it’s going to go well. For me, it got me back to the basics. I was trying to turn $1 into $5 instead of $1 into a $1.30.”

“Ah, probably the best, the toughest and the worst, is learning how to say ‘no.’ Because, family and friends, they drain you. I mean you want to help your family, you want to help your friends, but giving people money all the time—number one—you’re going to go broke, but also, it’s going to ruin all your relationships. Because the one thing I learned, no matter how much money you give somebody, the first time you tell them no, they hate you. So, the toughest thing for me, it was hard, and good, you have to learn to say ‘no.’”

“I was pretty good early in my career. It’s all about the rookie contract. You just basically assume that that’s the only money you’re going to get, and you live your life accordingly. If a new contract comes in, you may adjust a little bit. The biggest thing for me is when I had kids, that all changed. I would say I’m not a frugal guy, but I’m not a big spender. I’m right in the middle, where I do enjoy things and then splurge when necessary. But I make sure that I keep the long-term perspective. I got a lot of life to live, a lot of years. I want to create a legacy for my kids and my family.”

“You know, I try to keep things real simple in my mind, try not to over complicate anything. I try to go the other way, try to simplify the best I can. Whether I’m out here on the golf course or the way I coach and with my team, so just keeping it simple.”

GOLDEN AGE FOR CELEBRITY GOLF By Dylan Dethier

T

he American Century Championship has never lacked for star power — nor for talent. But now, more than ever, the tournament’s best players are also its biggest stars. No, Charles Barkley isn’t expected to contend this year. A number of top-flight athletes headline this 30th edition of the event in Lake Tahoe, marking a true golden age for celebrity golf. Take a look at this year’s favorites and consider their “other” athletic careers, too. Defending ACC champion Tony Romo was a four-time Pro Bowl quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. Last year, Romo edged out former Cy Young contender Mark Mulder, who won in 2015, 2016 and 2017 and returns with revenge on his mind. Cy Young winner and perennial MLB All-star John Smoltz is expected to contend, too, after a renewed focus on his own game. And Steph Curry, who finished 4th in 2017, will enter this year’s event fresh off a fifth consecutive NBA Finals appearance. What do these two MLB aces, a Pro Bowler and an NBA MVP have in common? In recent

F a c e b o o k . c o m / ACC h a m p i o n s h i p


months, they have all sharpened their games against the best golfers in the entire world. Romo’s latest pro appearance came in May at the PGA Tour’s AT&T Byron Nelson in Dallas. He missed the cut, but was encouraged by a steady showing of 76-74 — and remains wholly consumed by the vexing game of golf. “You can really make a ton of improvement with the right technique or practice. It’s like a puzzle. You can figure it out and you can really improve. It’s just, you got to go try and dissect it and figure it out,” Romo said after the Byron Nelson, more determined than ever. “If you can, then you can shoot scores that you’re proud of.” Mulder played in last fall’s Safeway Open, posting 75-74. He’s itching to get back to Tahoe. “I personally don’t get this anywhere else. So that’s why this is my favorite week of the year,” he said after last year’s event.” Smoltz, now 52, has been making a concerted effort at playing the PGA Tour Champions. In two 2019 starts, he’s shown flashes of brilliance — and earned praise from his competition. “I have had a lot of flattering comments from guys who say, ‘Hey, you can really play.’ Guys like Billy Andrade, Jerry Kelly. “They manage their games better; I’m still learning. When I think about what needs to be different, it’s kind of like a lineup where there’s one guy who you just can’t get out.” For Smoltz the pitcher, that hitter was Tony Gwynn. For Smoltz the golfer, it’s a matter of honing in all facets of his game at the right time. As for Curry? He may be the most golfmad of them all. “I think I think about golf way too much, it’s a problem. Like, during a game, yeah,” he admitted in a Facebook show following his life. “If I’m on the bench, dead ball or something, a swing tip might pop into my head…I’m haunted by it. That’s what my wife says,” Curry said. Curry’s two Web.com tour events have come near his home at the Ellie Mae Classic; while he missed the cut both times, three of the four rounds were 74 or better, impressing his playing partners. Every week besides the ACC, this crew of serious

T w i tt e r . c o m / ACC h a m p i o n s h i p

players pull for each other. “It’s awesome. Celebrity golf is getting better, the upper echelon of guys who can play, and we always know when another guy is playing,” Smoltz said. But the American Century Championship, as fun as it is, means time to dial in their best efforts. “It’s our World Series of Golf,” he continued. “I haven’t won it, I want to win one, and if I stay relatively healthy I’ll be in the running again.” When pressed for his list of tournament favorites, Smoltz listed the usual suspects: Mulder, Romo, Curry. But he’s gunning for the top spot himself. “I just want to be in the last group one time. I just want to get in that last group and put myself in a position where I can win.” The better-than-ever competition guarantees just one thing: If Smoltz makes it to that final group, it’s because he’s earned it.

DYLAN DREYER & KIRA KAZANTSEV JOIN WOMEN’S CONTINGENT

By Sandra Harwitt

In golf, as in much of life, it’s not always about winning. Instead it’s about bringing your best to whatever you’re doing. Renowned NBC weather anchor Dylan Dreyer and Miss America 2015 Kira Kazantsev plan to bring their best when they join the 90-player field at the American Century Championship this week. Dreyer and Kazantsev will be making their inaugural ACC appearances when they join Golf Channel host Lisa Cornwell and “NHL on NBC” host Kathryn Tappen to form a women’s foursome. They will play the 54-hole, modified stableford format event that gathers an A-list of sports and entertainment celebrities to Lake Tahoe. They join a field that includes defending champion Tony Romo, three-time former champion Mark Mulder, one-time NFL stars Marcus Allen, Reggie Bush and Steve Young; NBA luminaries Steph Curry, Ray Allen and Charles Barkley; MLB greats John Smoltz, Roger Clemens, Greg Maddux and Ozzie Smith; and entertainment stars Justin Timberlake, Miles Teller and Ray Romano. Dedicated golf enthusiasts, Dreyer and Kazantsev both admit to being excited about teeing off at the ACC, which has raised over $5 million for a variety of not-for-profit charities through the years. Dreyer was thrilled to receive the invite to play as Tappen, a close friend, has repeatedly

raved about the tournament. “I’ve never played with anyone watching as far as spectators are concerned,” she said. “I am scared to death. I have no idea how it’s going to go. A good outcome for me - my score is never a good outcome of every round I play - but if I can break 100 on a tough course I’d be happy. That would be a successful trip for me.” Kazantsev, who served as Miss America with the platform “Love Shouldn’t Hurt: Protecting Women Against Domestic Violence,” and is a long-time partner of Safe Horizon, an organization dedicated to provide Domestic Violence services, has never played Edgewood although her family has a vacation home in Tahoe. While she is a newcomer to the ACC, Kazantsev has played other big-time golf celebrity events so she understands what the atmosphere is going to be like. “I’d rather walk on stage at Miss America than walk in front of a gallery of spectators as a golfer, admitted Kazantsev, who reveals her current handicap is an approximate 13.9. “It is insane what a crowd can do to your mental fortitude and everything you practiced can just go out the window in a split second.” “The audience - when you do something poorly and they make this ‘Oooohhh’ sound - to be able to overcome that and still do your best is great,” she added. Dreyer and Kazantsev developed their love for golf in very different ways, which offers proof that an interest in the sport can come at anytime. The golf bug bit Dreyer when her now husband, NBC cameraman Brian Fichera, an avid golfer, presented her with a starter set of clubs when they first started dating around nine years ago. Nowadays, golf is a favorite activity for the couple to share along with a beer and hotdog – Dreyer even posted an Instagram photo proving that to be true. Naturally, Fichera will be on hand to provide moral support for Dreyer from the sidelines during the ACC. “Brian said, ‘Get yourself a couple of lessons and see if you like it and if you like it, stick with it,’” recalls Dreyer, who is hoping to meet fellow golf enthusiast Justin Timberlake in Tahoe. “I fell in love with golf immediately and it’s this thing we do together

T w i tt e r . c o m / ACC h a m p i o n s h i p

whenever we can. We plan vacations around it.” For Kazantsev, the daughter of Russian immigrants, golf became a shared activity with her surgeon father when she was just three years-old. She became a serious junior golfer but stopped competing through her teens when the family moved to California. “Golf was a way my father could spend time with me without a lot of conversation,” said Kazantsev, a Golden State Warriors fan hoping to run across Steph Curry during the event. “At around age 13, 14 I really burnt out on the sport. Ten years later I became Miss America and I was getting invited to pro-ams and that reignited my love of the game.” Interestingly, both women revealed similar goals for the American Century Championships weekend: have fun and do a credible job in representing women. “I think I can hold my own,” said Dreyer, who estimates her handicap at “somewhere around 21,” and admits her driving and putting never seem to work well at the same time. “I think I’m going to have a lot of fun. I know I’m one of four women playing in the tournament so I just want to represent women and want to play well enough. I want people to see me swing and that I can hit the ball and make good contact. I want them to think I’m there because I’m pretty good at golf.” As for Kazantsev, she believes she can outdrive some of the men in the field, but that isn’t what will be important. “The type of golfer I am, I’m not trying to become an LPGA professional,” Kazantsev said. “I’m just there to have fun and to show other women you don’t have to finish in the top 10, top 20, or finish in anything special to enjoy it. “It’s about showing up and regardless of my skill level or what people expect. I’m just there for me. To show that kind of confidence and fearlessness is really important to me.” About the Author Sandra Harwitt travels the world writing sports for USA Today, ESPN.com, Associated Press and other prominent outlets.

STEPH CURRY & JOE PAVELSKI

Bay Area Stars Shooting for Golf Win

S

teph Curry and Joe Pavelski give it their all when a championship is at stake. Their passion is sure to show again at the American Century Championship at Lake Tahoe, just as it did when they shined on the same May night in separate Bay Area arenas. BY Cam Inman, Columnist, San Jose Mercury News

Steph Curry has led the Golden State Warriors to five straight NBA Finals appearances.

While Curry came alive for a Golden State Warriors win in the NBA playoffs, and Pavelski skated into the hero’s role for the San Jose Sharks in the NHL playoffs. Neither was totally healthy, other than their will to win. Heck, a month later, Pavelski took inventory of his issues as he began his “kind of delayed” golf preparations. “The head’s feeling good, the knee is coming around, and the finger has been a little bit of a hiccup, just had a little surgery there after the first round,” Pavelski said. Such is life when you’re captaining a hockey team still in search of its first Stanley Cup. As for life as a title-chasing golfer, Pavelski noted: “It’s such a great week.” Pavelski and Curry, two of the Bay Area’s preeminent sports stars, are legit challengers to win at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course, where they’ll help headline a field filled with other sports stars, actors, singers and more celebrities, many from the Bay Area. Pavelski tied for third last year behind winner Tony Romo and runner-up Mark Mulder. Curry tied for 11th, a year after placing fourth. When Curry returns this year, he’ll get another chance to take down his father, Dell. “All, I want to know what are my odds at beating Steph?” Dell joked. “He was probably 15 when he beat me at golf. It was on my birthday, we were on vacation, he beat me on my birthday. He still has that card pictured in his room.”

Nowadays, in a familiar picture, Steph Curry just led the Warriors to their fifth straight NBA Finals. But it wasn’t easy along the way. Go back to May 8, when Curry and Pavelski were masters of their respective teams’ domains. Curry keyed a pivotal, Warriors playoff win. He scored 25 points in a 104-99 victory over Houston to snap a 2-2 series tie. And he did so despite the lingering effects of a dislocated middle finger, stepping up big time when Kevin Durant exited with a calf injury that became the NBA playoffs’ top storyline. “You saw Steph go into a different mode when Kevin went out. He knew he had to be the offensive fulcrum,” coach Steve Kerr said. About 20 miles down I-880 in San Jose, the Sharks needed to win Game 7 for a spot in the Western Conference Final, so Pavelski inspiringly suited up for the first time since sustaining a gruesome head injury two weeks earlier. It took less than six minutes for Pavelski to score, then he quickly added an assist in an eventual 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche. “It was nice, I’m not going to lie,” Pavelski said at his locker. “It’s fun and rewarding to win this time of year.” Pavelski won’t face the job hazards in Tahoe like with his day job. He lost three teeth when a puck deflected off his mouth for the Sharks’ first goal of the playoffs in April. Pavelski finished five shots behind Romo’s tournament-clinching score last year, after placing 10th in 2016 and tying for 12th in ‘17. Curry has been a perennial contender in Lake

Steph Curry finished fourth at the ACC in 2014 and 2017.

T w i tt e r . c o m / ACC h a m p i o n s h i p

San Jose Sharks forward Joe Pavelski tied for third at last year’s American Century Championship.

Tahoe: 2010, 28th; 2013, tied-fourth; 2014, tied-13th; 2016, 27th (one shot behind his dad, Dell); 2017, fourth; and, 2018, tied-11th. “I’ve always been a golf junkie, watching it on TV all the time, trying to get immersed in it as much as I can,” Curry said at last year’s ACC. “But I know what my day job is and enjoy the challenges and the journey and the career that basketball has given me. “To be able to be in this situation like this every year, you kind of morph my two worlds, my love for golf and competitive environment of being an athlete, and it’s a pretty cool experience out here. I look forward to it.”

Bay area players Pavelski and Curry are just two with Bay Area ties in this year’s ACC field. Curry’s Warriors teammate, Andre Igudola, will be golfing, as will Robbie Gould (49ers) and Aaron Rodgers (Cal, Green Bay Packers), plus a swarm of retired stars: Mark Mulder (threetime ACC champion), Jerry Rice, Steve Young, Tim Brown, Trent Dilfer, Jimmy Rollins, Jeremy Roenick, Charles Woodson, Carson Palmer and Jordy Nelson. Curry, Pavelski and all comers will look to dethrone Romo, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback who’s flourished as a CBS analyst. John Smoltz, Hall of Fame pitcher and Fox analyst, is also an imposing favorite.

ACC 30th Anniversary

Year of the Volunteer A Q&A with the people that make the ACC possible

What was your first year volunteering at ACC? Tom Reyes: 1991, second year of the event Mary Larsen: 1994. I have volunteered regularly ever since for 20+ years Dick Horn: 1993, the first year Isuzu was the title sponsor Jean Williams: 2000

V

olunteers are the backbone of every golf tournament, and the American Century Championship highlights that fact. The staff of nearly 400 is laden with communityminded, good-hearted people who are golf and celebrity-obsessed. These volunteers are the No. 1 reason the event has been able to donate more than $5 million to area and national charities through the years. This work force donates their time and talents to welcome visitors, locals, celebrities, officials and media. Their work is paramount in helping to smooth the complex operation of a major tournament. That in turn, allows tournament officials and sponsors: NBC, American Century Investments and the Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority to designate funds to help others. A major sponsor of the event, the LTVA also coordinates and schedules the crew of 400+ volunteers in various areas including security, front gate, marshals, scoring, concessions, and transportation. When you see them throughout the course this year, give them a nod and acknowledge their contribution to make the tournament successful and your experience comfortable. So who are these folks? We talked to a few of the longer-serving volunteers to hear their stories:

What positions have you held over the years?

TR: Leaderboard, Front Gate, Marshal MR: The only job I’ve had is course marshal with Team Reyes, led by Tom Reyes. As I recall, the first year was hole 6 and we moved around a bit before settling down on tournament hole 2. DH: First year walking scorer. Ever since then have been a co-chair for Marshals, Security, Walking Marshals and the tournament director’s favorite pinata! JW: Security—front gate, media room or club house

Why did you get involved?

TR: Last 15 years, hole 11 as marshal MR: Tom and June Reyes are friends from

our days of teaching for the Department of Defense Dependents School System overseas. They owned a cabin at Tahoe and spent their summers there. They would host a gathering of colleagues and when the tournament came along, that became the reunion time. When

the Reyes’ retired to Tahoe, the tournament tradition- and the fun -continued! DH: I make my living here and feel that I should contribute back to the community. There is no better publicity for the area than the ACC. JW: Wanted to give back to my community where I’ve lived since 1973. My husband played golf, and I wanted to learn more so when we retired I would understand why he loved it so much!!

Your favorite celebrities & why

TR: Lou Holtz, Mike Eurizone. Just enjoy that a lot of the celebrities say hello, acknowledge our involvement, and say how nice it is to have us working with them for the benefit of everyone involved. MR: Sir Charles Barkley is one of my favorites, especially after the year of the fire when he contributed so much to the recovery effort. DH: Aaron Rogers, always a gentleman, a friend, and a Chico guy. Larry the Cable Guy as

F a c e b o o k . c o m / ACC h a m p i o n s h i p


ACC 30th Anniversary: Year of the volunteer

I like his sense of humor. Vice President Quayle always friendly and will talk to you and thank other volunteers. Charles Barkley as he always took the time to sit down and sign autographs for the kids. Steve Young, a gentleman and a hell of a San Francisco 49ers QB. JW: Jerry Rice—a true “officer and a gentleman”, just super nice and what a great smile!!

Most memorable stories from the tournament

TR: When Charles Barkley finally hit his tee

shot on No. 11 over the one. It was one of the few times he ever made it. Plus, it was the year he did it with swinging with one arm. Everybody went crazy. MR: Trent Dilfer hit his drive into the evergreen tree just over the pond and the ball stayed in the tree near the top. DH: I could write a book. How about the guy who streaked the whole golf course ending up tangled naked in the barbwire whom the sheriff let go — they figured he received enough punishment from all his cuts. JW: As I was going off shift, a man at the concierge desk needed a ride to Harrah’s, he was told there were no limos available. I offered to give him a ride but he would have to wait for me to get my car in the volunteer parking area, he said that would be super. He would get his friend who also needed a ride and wait for me...his friend was Dan Marino!

Also working security at the front gate, I had a gentleman who was trying to get a Broncos helmet in to obtain John Elway’s signature. He was using it as a cooler complete with beer and ice—he was very disappointed to leave it at the memorabilia tent.

What’s your favorite part of the American Century Championship?

TR: The anticipatory atmosphere; every year something will happen that we don’t expect. That’s what makes it so exciting. And you never know how good some of these athletes are. I remember watching Corey Nakatani, the jockey, hit the golf ball. I think he’s about 5-foot tall and I’m 5’ 4” tall but he hit it 285 yards. I thought, how the hell can a guy like that hit a ball that far.” I can hit it about 150 yards. MR: I enjoy the quiet beauty of the trees, the lake and the mountains in the morning before the excitement of tournament play begins. I enjoy spending time with Team Reyes and watching the golfers and their entourages along the course. DH: Just being with friends and helping them have a good time. JW: All were the best.....

What makes you return each year

TR: I just look forward to the tournament every year. We all laugh and enjoy the experience and each other’s company. It’s all about the atmosphere, the people who work there and the camaraderie. The whole event is fun, I just love going. There’s been four of us going for 10 years. MR: I return each year to visit Tom and June and enjoy the scenery of Tahoe -and work at the ACC! TRADITION! DH: Just supporting the community and seeing friends JW: The people, the fun...

Your hometown

TR: Lodi, Calif. native. Been at Tahoe since 1968 when my wife and I bought a cabin. MR: Hometown is Lake Park, MN. I retired to San Antonio, TX. DH: South Lake Tahoe

Opposite: Tom Reyes has been volunteering at the ACC for the past 29 years.

T w i tt e r . c o m / ACC h a m p i o n s h i p

JW: South Lake Tahoe.

Age

TR: 87 years old MR: 75 years old DH: 74 JW: Forever young!!

Your profession

Principal in Goose Bay, Labrador, and Bitberg, Germany. MR: I taught school with DODSS for 40 years: South Korea, Philippines, and Germany DH: Currently the State Farm Agent for South Lake Tahoe.

ACC 30th Anniversary: Year of the volunteer

Bob Lowe Scoreboard Master

H

e’s considered the Michelangelo of calligraphy. What’s become a lost art is an annual treasure at the American Century Championship. Like the Sistine Chapel, Bob Lowe’s talents are pure art, only his is on the wall in the media center on the giant scoreboard that stretches across the front of the room. After 23 years at Tahoe and 20 years prior at various tournaments throughout Southern California, the PGA and LPGA, the 89-year-old master is laying down his ink markers and felt pens. His “penmanship” talents were recognized when he was volunteering at a tournament and was asked to help on the leader board in the media room. His attractive printing led a tournament official to ask if he’d be interested in utilizing those skills more often. After a few years practicing at various tournaments, he was asked to do the scoreboard in Kaanapali and work his magic there. When he was a last minute replacement at the Bob Hope Desert Classic he met Mike Milthorpe, also the tournament director for the ACC. It’s been an annual reunion since.

Bob Lowe, an artist and gentleman, quick with a smile, a laugh and razor wit, will surely be missed but always appreciated by all those who had the pleasure of working with him.

AMERIC AN CENTURY CHAMPIONSHIP

Involved in the Southern California golf community for many years, Lowe, 89, joined the Southern California Golf Association in 1995 and served as president in 2008. Following an early retirement as a high school English teacher and coach, he operated a highly successful auto parts and repair shop. Bob attended USC, served in the Navy during the Korean conflict and received bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education from Whittier College. He and his wife Marlene (“Toots”) have been married 62 years. In addition to being SCGA president, Lowe was also second vice president of the California Golf Association, and was chairman of the 97th California Amateur Championship in 2008. Their son, Jimmy, and daughter Jackie, have also been involved with the scoreboards. The kids now drive Bob and Toots from Southern California to Tahoe annually. Bob Lowe, an artist and gentleman, quick with a smile, a laugh and razor wit, will surely be missed but always appreciated by all those who had the pleasure of working with him.
