The Air Mobility Command Museum Foundation fundraiser Golf Tournament on Friday, June 21, 2013, was a huge success as 72 golfers turned out for an afternoon of fun!
As this tournament is the Foundation's largest fundraiser, all the proceeds from this tournament are going to help us 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.
It was a beautiful day for golfing, and everyone had a wonderful time. Not only did we enjoy the golf, but there was a nice dinner afterwards with a Silent Auction and prizes awarded to winning golfers. The winning Low Net team, with a score of 57, was comprised of Gary Chechett, George Courtney, Gary Glanden, and Jim Hutchison. Runner-up in the Low Net was the team of Mike Martin, John Tullis, Buck Weaver, and Ches Wise. In 3rd place in the Low Net was a team of Dottie Baker, Chuck Miller, Mike Wright, and Phil White. The Low Gross winners, with a score of 59, was the team of Kevin Boylan, Mike Mendoza, Mason Mendoza, and John Tinsley. With a shot stopping 4'3" from the hole, Sean Batson won the "Men's Closest to the Hole" prize. The Putting Contest, a long, breaking putt, was won by Mike Martin. With a drive landing "Closest to the Line", Bodie McCoy was the winner. A high-light of the day was on the 16th Hole where George Chabbott had sponsored a $500 award to the player getting their second shot closest to the par-5 hole. The happy winner was Mike Wright with a shot 16'2" from the hole edging out Brandon Sanders whose shot was 17'8". Mike donated back to the Foundation half of his winnings. A special thanks to Bettie Campbell of Dover Federal Credit Union for all her "behind the scenes" support.
