It didn’t take much arm twisting for James to agree to play golf for 24 hours.  He loves to golf – not to be confused with “he is great at golf” – and he has a passion for helping kids in Scouting.  We asked him how he plans on keeping up with Tony – a decorated military veteran and avid adventure racer.  “Who – that old man?  I’ll be carrying him by the time this thing is over.”

Despite the cheap shot at Tony, James is excited about the challenge.  “I love talking to people who were in Scouting as a kid.  Whether it was 10 years ago or 50, they have fond memories of their experience and they always talk about how much it benefited their lives.  I can’t think of a better way to spend 24 hours than by helping today’s youth enjoy the same experiences!”

“P.S. – Please don’t tell Tony about the old man comment!”
