Since about 1994, a
group of TZT members, plus some relatives and friends,
have gotten together under the leadership of John Gugino
and held golf outings at various spots: Myrtle Beach,
South Carolina; and later in Florida, at Kissimmee,
Orlando or Davenport. For most of us, the golf was secondary
(and amateurish), it was the camaraderie and the bonding
with old friends that was important.
Most of the photos on this page are thanks to Tony
Mascellino. Tony and Russ Mascari
are old friends who attended McKinley High School.
They didn't have a chance to pledge for
TZT then, but they're
now our 'Honorary Pledges'.
The late Lafayette grad Joel
Buffamonte (Joe Buff)
is also shown in some of the photos. Joel was an
'Alpha Zeta' man,
but was always welcome at our outings.
In 2015, Joe Cardinale
sent me additional photos which had the big advantage of
being dated. Joe's
contributions are indicated by(JC).

In later years, all the get-togethers were in
Florida. I'm guessing the years, based on the
amount and color of the hair.
