Our annual Thunderbird Chapter golf tournament was a rousing success! We were hosted by The Las Vegas Country Club on Friday, 20 May. We had 108 golfers on a beautiful, but slightly windy day. Afterwards, we enjoyed an excellent dinner of fajitas and gave away a whole bunch of prizes! We awarded prizes for the top 8 teams: Tied for 1st – Nellis Golf Guys Team D and Creech AFB Team, 3rd – CAE Team, Tied for 4th – Homewood Suites Team and Nellis AFB Team, 6th – Nellis Golf Guys Team B, and Tied for 7th – Team Peterson and Team “Tank” (another group from Nellis). For our individual contests, the winners were: Denis Bass – Men’s long drive, Lisa Motely – Women’s long drive, Miguel Macias – Closest to pin, and Thomas Garringer – Putting contest. Our raffle was a huge success! We gave away over 50 excellent prizes. Thanks to all for being so generous buying raffle tickets. We also held silent auctions on 30 items. As any participant can attest, we had some great items and the winners got some tremendous deals.
Thanks to the Las Vegas Country Club for hosting us…we are hoping for a return trip next year! A special thanks to OneNevada Credit Union for being a Platinum Sponsor, donating raffle and silent auction items, and providing some excellent volunteers to help run the tournament. Another special thanks to JT3 for being a Platinum Sponsor. Sponsorship at the Platinum level is so helpful to us achieving our fundraising goals. We also had six Gold Sponsors…Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Arcata, CAE, and Battlespace Flight Services. Thank you all very much. Mostly importantly, thanks to all the participants! You are a special and supportive crowd. See you next year!
