7th Annual Golf Outing Review

Thank you for sponsoring or attending our 7th Annual Golf Outing and truly making it a success.

We started our day with cinnamon buns or specialty breads, juice and coffee.  In their golf bag of goodies given when they registered was a sleeve of golf balls, an apple, golf tees, candy, chips or pretzels and the program booklet.  Their carts were ready for them to begin their 18-holes of golf and the weather was great. Beverages were available from the cart which toured the course.

We experienced a few sprinkles of rain before they came in for sausage, pepper and onion sandwiches, chips and choice of macaroni or potato salad, cookies and beverages at the turn. Everyone reported how nice it was and that the temperature was perfect.

Unfortunately our luck didn’t hold out long enough to finish, we had a short burst of heavy rain followed by lighting which resulted in us changing our event from an 18-hole event to basing our winners on their 1st 9-holes.  The golf club doesn’t permit people out in the open with metal sticks (golf clubs) creating a personal lighting rod with no protection.  Our 1st place team was AFSCME DC 83, 2nd Place team was UFCW ONE and 3rd Place was Mercer County CLC. 

Because not everyone was able to complete the skill shots we used the skill shot prizes for door prizes so everyone had an opportunity to win them. We had special prizes donated by Rudberg Law, another by American Income Life and many items were donated by USW District 10 and we them all. We also purchased other prizes and as a result every golfer received a door prize.

Our event concluded with a steak dinner with all the trimmings. True to our tradition of being inclusive and treating everyone the same, those with special diets like gluten free and vegetarian also had food prepared special for them throughout the day.

Normally we do several additional things at our Golf Outing; A chip shot 50/50 which this year was won by Daryl Busch he received $85.00; a 50/50 Raffle this year valued at $172.00 was won by Donald Griner; and normally we do “Skins” but this year we were unable to compete far enough to award them. We offered those who paid to participate their funds back and because our golf outing is designed to split our proceeds with the 4-Food Warehouse Distributors in our 19 county area and we have terrific people who attend most of those groups chose to donate their skins money to our event; we thank them for their generosity.
