Raised by 22 people in 9 months
As you may know our good friend Jay Bird was a very enthusiastically golfer among other things, we had the same 4some for over 10 years and played mostly Sunday mornings at the Montauk Down state park  , it was the high light of all our weeks but especially for Jay , he loved the comardary of been out on the course , Jay wasnt interested in shooting a low score , he only wanted to be out there and have fun and have bragging rights for the following week , 
                                                                   To honor our friend we would like to have a memorial bench installed in his name on the course at the Montauk Down Golf Course. The cost of the bench is $1500 , once our $ goal is reached , I (Declan Conroy ) will receive said money and organize with the Downs of Montauk and get it going .
I would like to thank you  all in advance for donating to honor our friend Jay ,  Declan Conroy

Hi all
First off , apology’s for messing up with the last update , I know some off you did not get it as it was overlapped with another one or something like that , so anyway I wanted to let you know that we will be having a dedication to Jay at his bench at the Montauk Downs Golf Course on Tuesday the 23rd at 6:00pm , carts will be provided by Kevin Smith at the pro shop to get out to the 8th tee , it’s really not that far from the clubhouse, it’s about a Driver, 3 wood away , well, it would be for Jay, LOL also I’ve spoken with Jays sister Jannette and she will be up from SC and will be there , looking forward to seeing her and anyone else who can make it, thank you all , this has been long over due , regards Declan ,

I forgot to mention that with the funds left over after the bench was purchased I will be keeping $80 for a new and bigger plaque as the one on the bench will rust out in no time plus it’s very small and is a little hard to read so the remaining funds will be donated to the Montauk Boy Scouts , hopefully I’ll have someone there to accept the check then .

Hi all
I wanted to again thank everyone for keeping Jays name alive by donating to his bench at the Montauk Downs Golf Course , For those who play at the Downs would have noticed Jays bench a top the hill on the 8th tee box , the bench was put in in the early spring and I think it looks great , it looks out over Jays favorite hole the 7th , Jays name is on a little plaque with the words in memory of our good friend Jay ‘Bird’ Scott , he never laid up on 7 or in live ,,,Jay always said every Sunday morning that he didn’t come here to lay up,

I’ve been told by those who know that we should have a little dedication to Jay at the bench , say a few words, tell some story’s and what ever , so I’ve contacted the parks department and finally today I heard back from them and got the go ahead to have the dedication , So it will be at the Montauk Downs golf course on Monday 17th @ 6:00pm Sharp , I’ve been asked to keep it short and sweet as the park closes not to long after that , the Pro shops Kevin Smith will provide Carts to get to the bench for those that need one , please be at least 10 mins early so we can all go together , well thats seems to be about it , thanks again to everyone. Declan Conroy
