Adrian Tees Off
Annabella, Leigh and Phil drove South to join Adrian, who was already in the San Diego area for the Stan Humphries Celebrity Golf Classic, which was underway at the Morgan Run Resort in Rancho Santa Fe. Adrian had two days of practice rounds before the weekend’s main event, so the band’s soundcheck on the Friday had to be scheduled around the golf. Despite some mid-afternoon rain, which held up play for a while, Adrian made it to the venue to join the rest of the band by 6.30 pm. After sound check, Leigh and Annabella went back to the hotel to relax, while the rest of the posse grabbed a bite to eat.
Annabella Hi Fives 'Em
A loyal bunch turned out on this rather damp and dull evening, but things soon warmed up when the band hit the stage at just past 11 p.m. Afterwards, Leigh, Annabella and Phil hung around, chatting to fans, while Adrian turned in for an early pre-competition night. The abstinence from the usual rock & roll antics paid off over the next couple of days – Adrian shot 74-73 and tied for 19th.
The band would like to thank Josh Board, Randall Adkins, Stacy Green, Chris Olson, Max and the Brick By Brick crew.
