VuQo! VuQo! VuQo! was the chant at the reception after playing 18 holes in the First Bayanihan Cup held at Summit Pointe Golf Club in Milpitas, CA. Winners of the different divisions each won a bottle of VuQo while the rest of the participants got a chance to win a bottle through the raffle.
The event was sponsored by Mango Tours, Philippine Airlines, Cache Creek, AirPhil Express, Microtel, Bayanihan Cargo, Rafael Lumanlan of Morgan Stanley, Stephen Sim of PGA Los Angeles, Globe Telecom, Asian Journal, Keep Scores, and VuQo Premium Vodka. Guests of honor included Milpitas Mayor, Jose Esteves and San Francisco Deputy Consul General of the Philippines, Alfonso “Doy” Ver.
VuQo CEO, Rich Cabael, played in the tournament but was never in contention. “I played very well but unfortunately, my score didn’t reflect it,” Cabael jokingly said. “For every great shot I hit, I hit 10 not so great!”
