WOHVA Golf Outing
October 4, 2014
The first annual Wisconsin Off Highway Vehicle Association Golf Outing is in the books. The outing was held at Royal St. Patrick's Golf Links in Wrightstown just south of Green Bay on Saturday October 4th. While the weather was less than perfect, all of the participants thoroughly enjoyed and were challenged by the links. The day started with tee off times between 8 and 8:30 am. The Barrett foursome was the first off and looking forward to a great round. Next the Bergin foursome teed off to challenge the course. Lastly, the Stephens/Groshek foursome addressed the 1st tee with excitement.
Play continued throughout the morning in spite of the cool temps, wind, and the occasional showers. Even the periodic rain could not dampen the spirits of the hardy golfers.
The outing was a scramble event with several specific hole challenges. There were a 2 Longest Putt, and 2 Best drive/Closest to the Pin contests to add to the competition of the day. Prizes for the hole events included the newly designed WOHVA Sweatshirts, a $25 gift certificate to Warrior Products and a bottle a Famous Grouse Scottish Whiskey. The event winners were announced during the Fall Trail Meeting. Several WOHVA members who came for the Fall Trail and B.O.D. meeting enjoyed lunch at the Crosswinds Pub &Grille along with the golf outing participants. After lunch, a few adult beverages and a whole bunch of conversation about the event, the group moved into the 19th hole for the WOHVA Falls Trails Meeting. The Fall Trail Meeting ended with the final competition of the day. Members and guests tossed golf balls off the balcony of the restaurant toward the 19th hole tee for a 50/50 split of the proceeds.
While the weather was cool for golf, the staff at Royal St. Patrick's Golf Links received many warm congratulations and many great comments about the food, drink and condition of the golf course.
Plans are already underway for next year's event. We are confident that the 2015 WOHVA GOLF OUTING will be another success. Our thanks go out to all who participated and planned this event.
WOHVA has so much to be thankful for this holiday season. First and foremost WOHVA is thankful for our volunteers and members. Without this group of absolutely exceptional people; this association wouldn’t exist as the successful, future minded state association we share today. With this group of people WOHVA will soon complete the best year in WOHVA history. Growth has occurred in membership, member participation, volunteer base, political action, event sizes, finances and overall impact on the Badger state. WOHVA is also thankful for the relationship with the Mole Lake Community that shares their property with us for events. Because of these relationships WOHVA has made great strides towards the mission that drives us forward in 2014. Happy Holidays!
WOHVA THANKS YOU!
