Golf Scramble update Oct. 13, Onion Creek. Tee time: 1pm. Reaching out to sponsors from last year and new potential sponsors. Doing the same thing as last year: trying to get as many fire stations participate. Goal: 18 fire stations. $1800 per team, includes golf, barbecue, drink tickets. Need help getting the word out to fire stations. This year adding a golf ball launcher. Kristen needs $650 to reserve it for a day. Hoping to get a sponsor to pay for this so the participants wouldn’t have to pay per use.
