Membership Giveaway Tournament

TurkeysA chilly morning and wild turkeys greeted the two person teams for this year’s edition of the GT Car Wash sponsored Fun Scramble & Membership Giveaway Tournament.

Once the first couple of holes were completed the temperature rose to a very comfortable level and the golfers enjoyed a great round of golf. Once everyone was off the course and seated the reverse draw for  the free 2018 Birchbank Membership began.

Serving of the buffet dinner didn’t stop the drawing of names as everyone hoped they would be the last name drawn. Out came the dessert table and the names kept being pulled until the final name was drawn…
