Inside the Ropes at VEMA

Viera East Men's Association


Rain or shine, VEMA members enjoy weekly league play.

The Viera East Men’s Association (VEMA) recently had its second annual pizza party at the Viera East Residents’ Club. About 65 VEMA members and their guests attended. 

VEMA held elections for new board members. Serving for the 2015-2016 year are Larry Henris, president; Tom Walker, vice president; David Horst, secretary; Bill Oakley, treasurer; and John Gulla, past president. Outgoing board members are Gary Shiffrin, vice president, and Bill Hall, secretary.

In recent VEMA league play, on June 4, flight winners were Peter Maloney, Flight 1; Wilson Butler, Flight 2; David Hill and Jim Benton, Flight 3; and Dick May, Flight 4. 

On June 11, the winners with a net score of 26 were the team of Steve Wing, Ed Raleigh, Bob Warner and Jim Taube. Winning closest-to-the-pin were Bruce Schwanda, Ed Raleigh, Bill Oakley and Raj Patel.

Last month’s Inside the Ropes mentioned a tournament sponsored in memory of VEMA member Jim Childers. Childers was incorrectly called Ray in the article. As secretary of VEMA, I wish to personally offer my sincerest apologies to his family for the error.
