Letter from the Program Chair
SWSS Endowment Golf Tournament
The 2020 SWSS Golf Tournament will be held Sunday, January 26th at The Preserve Golf Club in Vancleave, MS. It is imperative you complete the registration form in the link below if you intend to participate. With industry support, we will be able to limit entry fees to $25 for students and $50 for non-students. Simply complete the registration form and follow instructions on the form. Some rental clubs will be available at The Preserve; however, sets are limited and golfers are encouraged to bring their own set or share with a team member.
The tournament will be a 4-man scramble with mixed teams consisting of students, industry and university scientists. The purpose is to encourage networking between these groups. Teams will be randomly assembled unless an industry sponsor requests play with certain students. Sponsors will be listed at the registration table during the SWSS annual meeting. All proceeds minus certain expenses (e.g., team prizes and lunch) will be will go directly to the SWSS Endowment. If you are interested in becoming a team sponsor, please contact Kelley Mazur (kelley@imigroup) or Hunter Perry (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Some SWSS Endowment Donations are handled at meeting registration, but feel free to earmark your donation for the tournament. The donation will go to the Endowment as a sponsorship for 2, 3 or 4 student golfers and exempt them from the tournament fee.
Team Sponsorships are structured as follows:
Silver 500.00 (sponsors two students)
Gold 750.00 (3 students)
Platinum $1,000.00 (4 students)
*All proceeds minus certain expenses (e.g., team prizes, lunch) will go to the SWSS Endowment Fund.
A small awards banquet and meal will be held directly following completion of golf play.
