JPO EVENT VGA HISTORY: John Pierce is a one-of-a-kind VGA member that started the tournament over 35 years ago. The VGA has embraced this event to honor all its past and present members. We traditionally schedule this event on Memorial Day weekend because many founding VGA members served in the Armed forces. What better way to honor John, his love for the club, our membership growth, and comradery than by playing golf!!
