The 2016 Golf Outing Wrap-up

3-F Golf Tournament – June 11, 2016

A total of 80 people turned out to play the 4th annual Fin, Feather and Fur Society golf tournament. This year’s tournament was held at the prestigious Niagara frontier Golf Club in Youngstown NY. The field including men and women consisted of 80%, 3-F Club members. The goal is always to have 100% membership play. Thank you to the non members who were good enough to help round out the field.

The weather could not have been any better! Fun was had by all! Some more than others but the bottom line is nobody got hurt and the requests have already been made to continue the event again next year.

At the conclusion of golf, the awards banquet and dinner was held at the 3 – F club house. The food was fantastic and the drinks were flowing! Thank you Joes Country Catering along with Kiki & Kelley taking care of the bar. A raffle and 50/50 was held with some fantastic prizes won. A total of $1058.00 was raised which will be used to buy 2 youths lifetime hunting licenses. Thank you, Heather, Liz and bartenders on a great job selling tickets. A big thank you to the sponsors, golfers and patrons of the club, that were good enough to also buy tickets and entrance fees for this special club function.

The goal once again for the 2017 golf tournament will be 100 % club members. I firmly believe this can be done as the feedback every year is: “What a fantastic event this is.” Let’s make it happen!

Remember Karaoke, dinner, campout night is August 27th. There will be a limit of 100 tickets sold for this event. Looks like it will be $10.00 per ticket. If you missed the Karaoke night on February 20th, 2015, you missed one hell of a fun filled night. Don’t miss this one. See bartenders to purchase tickets.
