The snowbirds have arrived at the Viera East Golf Course and are actively involved in the weekly Viera East Men’s Association (VEMA) tournaments. Two events were held in December: the VEMA Directors Cup completed match play and the regular Thursday morning tournament had 44 golfers. The top three finishers from the four flights were Peter Maloney, Tim Brown and Jim Robinson from flight one; John Perino, Robert Frazier and Ted Edlow from flight two; Martin Gillette, Raj Patel and Mike Schmitt from flight three; and John Gulla, David Horst and a three-way tie for third of Dick May, Jim Donnelly and Phil Rooney from flight four.

Closet-to-the-pin winners were Sam Speziale, Dale Zeigler, Andy Mammay and Robert Frazier. The VEMA Directors Cup winners will be announced next month.
