Chamber holding 28th annual golf outing


Several of the sponsors and vendors will have games for participants, many of which will come with impressive prizes. Tom Stricker, of Cutting Edge Sporting Goods, will be on site with a unique game. Stricker will have a target set up and will bring bows and arrows. Each player will be given the opportunity to shoot an arrow at the target. Depending on where the arrow hits, if it lands in one of the circles at the center, players will be entered in a drawing to take place after the outing. The target will also feature small spots marked with increments of change leading up to a dollar. If the arrow lands on one of those spaces, players will be asked to donate that amount to the National Archery in the Schools Program, which is the organization that holds the archery tournaments in which the South Decatur Elementary School and Greensburg Junior High teams recently competed.

In the afternoon, as golfers come in from playing their 18 holes, score cards will be turned in and tallied while participants are invited to happy hour, which will be sponsored by Nationwide Insurance. North Branch officials will determine the winners and display the rankings on the large score board at the course. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place. During happy hour, a dinner of chicken wings, side dishes and all the fixings will be served by Buffalo Wings and Rings.

Every player who participates in the Chamber’s golf outing will receive a coupon for a free golf club. Players will also receive a small cooler that is capable of holding six beverages provided by Prestige Printing, a Columbus Chamber of Commerce member.

It is not necessary to be a Chamber member to participate in the golf outing. Teams consist of four golfers and registration for a team is available at a cost of $375. Individuals can register for a cost of $100. No teams or individuals will be accepted after Tuesday, August 6. Emsweller said that 20 teams have already registered and he expects about 24 to be registered as of tee time August 9.
