Forty eight golfers were greeted with exceptional weather, a unique golf gift, an opportunity to win the coveted MAFDA Golf Trophy, and raffle prizes available to all including electronic devices, and a large screen TV.Our sponsors surprise us each year with their generosity, this year was no exception. Star Stainless Screw Co. took the lead role as Event Sponsor, ND Industries presented as the honored Legacy Sponsor in recognition of their past years title sponsorshipsupport, Stelfast rewarded any hole in one effort with LOTS of cash (unfortunately no winners, but many were close) as the Hole in One Sponsor, Fall River Manufacturing again sponsored our grand prize of a large screen TV, Lee S Johnson Associates, Inc. sponsored lunch, G.L. Huyett was the Beverage Cart Sponsor, and R & D Fasteners outdid even last year’s effort by again producing the FINEST industry specific trophy’s.Thank you sponsors – you are why our golf outing is consistently heads and shoulders above the rest, we truly appreciate everything you do for the association.
YOU ARE THE BEST!
The golfers also came out to play. Team Lubker Distribution (Rick Lubker, Rick Yanni, Al Papsin, and Glen Hanson) took home the coveted first place trophies, while team Lee S Johnson (2) finished second (Steve Gillmor, Dan Carr, Tom Cusano, and Ralph Barone). Third place went to team ND Industries (Ken Schneeloch, Brian Eakins, Tricia Murty, and Rob Knox). In addition to trophies, the winning teams were provided spending cash at the pro shop, as were winners of the Long Drive competition, and closest to the pin competitions. Lots of winning, lots of smiling faces!The golfers however weren’t the only ‘winners’. As in the past, the MAFDA appeals to ALL who participate and make sure winning is EASY. The raffle prizes provided by Fall River Manufacturing kept everyone ‘in play’, and ALL in hopes of winning the coveted large screen television Grand Prize. Congratulations to this year’s very lucky winner Jason Webster (North East Fastener Corp.). ‘Very lucky’ in this case is an understatement – as Jason also won this same prize last year!‘Thank you’ hardly covers our appreciation for all who attended. Your generosity and support of the association and scholarship fund is all inspiring.
