10th Annual Golf Tournament

Friday, 20 June 2014

The golfing season is approaching, and the AMC Museum Foundation will once again be having a golf event, our 10th Annual Golf Tournament, to raise funds. It will be held on Friday, 20 June 2014 at Jonathan's Landing Golf Course in Magnolia, DE. Tee off time is 12:00. Sign-in is from 10:30 to 12:00. The proceeds from this tournament will help us to fulfill the mission of the AMC Museum as an aviation and aerospace, education, scientific, cultural, historical, and inspirational facility for the general public and the Air Force community.

You can make up your own foursome to play. Also, we are seeking Hole Sponsors, at $100, for this event or also donated door prizes. For those who choose to sponsor a hole, a 24"x18" sign will be placed on the golf course tees or around greens noting you as a sponsor. Further recognition is given to Hole Sponsors and door prize donors in our handout brochure at the buffet dinner following the round. Sponsors and door prize donors will be highlighted in our museum e-newsletter, which goes out on the internet to over a thousand people and on our museum Facebook page. Sponsors and prize donors will all be cited in our quarterly Hangar Digest magazine and on the museum website under "Past Events" following the tournament. So, as you can see, being a Hole Sponsor or donating a door prize not only helps the AMC Museum continue its mission, but it provides you with considerable recognition and advertising and is tax-deductible within IRS Regulations.

The AMC Museum Foundation is a 501(c)3 Corporation, EIN 51-0355891. All proceeds go directly to the restoration and maintenance of artifacts in the Museum helping our 170+ volunteers keep the museum as the number one free cultural attraction in the state for the past four years.

AMC Museum Summer Camp

July 14-18
July 21-25
August 11-15

The AMC Museum's educational summer camp is for children interested in aeronautics and the U.S. Air Force. They will learn the history and science of flight, fly a simulator, and pre-flight an actual aircraft.

A unique feature of this summer camp is the option of a flight in a Dover AFB aero club plane around the base flight pattern for only $25!

Half-day classes are from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. for ages 9 to 11 and 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. for ages 12 to 15. Dover AFB Aero Club flights will be on Thursdays, weather permitting. Flights will take place on Fridays if necessary due to bad weather.

Cost is $100 for a week of half-day classes and $25 for the optional flight. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Classes will be cancelled if a minimum number of students have not registered. A full refund will be given if class is cancelled and the student cannot attend another. A refund will be given if flights must be cancelled for weather or other events beyond the AMC Museum's control. If you must cancel we must receive 72 hours notice for a refund.
