The Toilet Bowl Trophy

Toilet Bowl Photo

Despite that fact that this fundraiser takes the form of a golf tournament, let no one be fooled. Steve Downey was not much of a golfer. He was known to have thrown (and lost) at least a few clubs in a tree after a bad shot.

Here is a photo of him and his teammate, Dennis Curley, proudly displaying their toilet bowl trophies for worst team at a 1983 Lynn Police golf tournament.

We have continued the tradition by awarding our own toilet bowl trophies each year to the team with the highest (worst) score. We will spare the winners from our tournament by not listing them here, but there should be no shame. Each of these teams should be proud to follow in Steve’s footsteps.
