10th Annual Golf Tournament - Four Week Countdown

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

The Golf Club at Newcastle

The Golf Committee is knee deep in preparations. Hopefully everyone else is just as excited to engage 300+ business aviation professionals in less than four weeks. Title Sponsor Dassault Falcon Jet is providing proprietary golf balls with anti-hook/slice treatment to tighten up the scores. The 10th place team will receive a special prize in honor of the tournament's 10th anniversary!

Do you want to play? There are about dozen golfer registrations available now. Sign up! A wait-list will follow and be fulfilled by cancellations/sponsor donations.

Alternatively, would you rather enjoy a late afternoon miniature golf contest plus partake in the social experience? Register for the "Rusty Putter Miniature Golf contest/19th Hole/Dinner & Awards Ceremony" package for just $75. This is a fun new experience for the rest of us who don't wear golf attire.

The tournament expansion into both courses has yielded more sponsorship opportunities for every budget. Flight departments are jumping into the mix to demonstrate PNBAA support and expand their team's participation. All organizations please consider joining this experience with a sponsorship package.

Finally, the Golf Committee is looking for a unique "photo volunteer" to take lively outtake pictures and create the PowerPoint slideshow for dinner. If this role may be of interest, email volunteer leader Kristin Kirschbaum.
