Register now for the AASV Foundation Golf Outing August 20

With careful attention to social distancing guidelines and other COVID-19 precautions, plans are moving forward for the annual AASV Foundation Golf Outing, which is returning to Veenker Memorial Golf Course in Ames, Iowa on Thursday, August 20. Registration is now open and due by August 5. Last year, 51 golfers enjoyed a picture-perfect day on this well-groomed course. While we can't promise the same weather again this year, there is plenty of room for additional golfers -- so dust off those clubs and register to spend a relaxing day outdoors with your colleagues in support of the foundation.

AASV members, industry stakeholders, clients, staff, family, and friends are all welcome to register a 4-person team for this fun, 18-hole best-ball tournament. Individual golfers and couples are also welcome and will be assigned to a team.

Once again, Dr. Josh Ellingson is coordinating the event. Golfer check-in begins at 11:00 AM on the 20th, with practice balls available for warming up on the driving range before the contest begins. A shotgun start at noon kicks off the four-person team, best-ball competition. Golfers compete as a foursome against the challenges of the course (and the other teams) in addition to participating in individual contests along the way.

Boxed lunches, sponsored by APC, and beverages, courtesy of Zoetis, will be supplied on-course. Contests, games, and giveaways will be hosted by golf hole sponsors Aurora Pharmaceutical, GVL, Huvepharma, Insight Wealth Group, Kemin Animal Nutrition & Health, NPPC, Pharmgate Animal Health, Phibro Animal Health, and Topigs Norsvin. When the golfing is completed, team and individual contest winners will be recognized and receive prizes during the pork dinner sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health.

The registration fee includes 18 holes of best-ball golf, cart, lunch, beverages, awards dinner, and prizes. Funds raised by the event support AASV Foundation programs, including research grants, travel stipends for students attending the AASV annual meeting, swine externship grants, scholarships for veterinarians pursuing board certification in the American College of Animal Welfare, student debt relief scholarships, tuition grants at the Swine Medicine Education Center, and more.
