The Tenth Annual Gary Gore Golf Tournament will be held Friday, May 29th at The Club at StoneRidge. Chamber members are encouraged to sponsor and participate in a fun-filled event.

The tournament is a way to link business with pleasure and provides an opportunity for participants to network with other business professionals in a casual and relaxed environment. Registration
begins at 11 a.m., with a Shotgun Start at 1 p.m.

The tournament memorializes Gary Gore, who died in a watercraft accident at Wilson Lake in 2005. Gore was serving as the Chamber’s Executive Director at the time of his death, a position
he held for five years. Proceeds from the tournament support the operations of the Great Bend Chamber of Commerce & Economic Development.

Players can look forward to a four-man scramble format with thousands of dollars in prizes and raffle drawings. Players can earn additional prizes in the hole contests. A beverage cart will be available, sponsored by Benefit Management Inc.

“The patio party is a fun networking event for all chamber members, spouses and guests to enjoy after our tournament is over,” says Andrea Bauer, director of sales & member services. “The event includes great food, awards for the top golfers, and opportunities to win an impressive array of door prizes, regardless of whether or not you play golf that afternoon.”

The patio party and awards dinner will begin at 6 p.m. and is sponsored by CUNA Mutual Retirement Solutions. Guests can attend the patio party and dinner for just $15
per person. These tickets can be purchased online through the golf registration form even if you don’t play golf.

Cost to enter the tournament is $100 per player, or $400 per team, which includes green fees, raffle tickets and admission to the patio party and dinner.

Prizes are awarded to the top three teams and everyone is eligible to win over $2,500 in prizes and raffle drawings. Mulligans are available for $5, paid the day of the tournament.

Hole sponsorships are still available for $100 per company and include recognition on the chamber website, signage on a hole at the tournament, recognition in the Outlook Business Journal
following the event and recognition in one of the weekly email update newsletters.
