Monday May 7th NIMAGA hosted the Member/Guest event at Eagle
Brook Country club. Despite
some questionable weather 80 players teed off in a shotgun format on a
well maintained but wet course. The
event is one of the many new ways the NIMAGA board is attempting to
attract new players. Because
of this event, 40 golfers attended as guests and received a positive
exposure to NIMAGA. A small
awards ceremony with refreshments capped off the event and sent many
players home with a good impression of our organization.
If you missed this event please remember to watch for details next
year! A special thanks goes
out to all members who participated! UPDATE: The event will be
Monday May 6th, 2002 – so mark your calendar early!
