Helicopter Drop

Today, if you were at the Biltmore hotel in Coral Gables, you would have witnessed this event: a helicopter hovering above the huge and beautifully manicured golf court to drop a whole bunch of golf balls aiming at a hole marked by a red flag.

This is an annual event by the local Rotary Club of Coral Gables to raise money for their preferred charity projects. Tickets are sold and linked to numbered golf balls. The three golf balls that land the closest to the hole with the flag win the three prizes.

I was there to watch and am smart enough to stay far away, making sure those solid hard like rock balls have no chance to land on my head.
