Ames Country Club to host 2008 AASV Foundation golf outing

The AASV Foundation’s annual Midwest Golf Outing is slated for Wednesday, August 20, at the Ames (Iowa) Golf and Country Club. The foundation invites AASV members, swine-industry stakeholders, and their guests to participate in the 18-hole best-ball contest. Proceeds from the event provide funding for the foundation’s endowment. Ten foursomes participated in last year’s event at the same location.

The foundation encourages AASV members to register a team (four golfers per team) for the friendly competition. Registrations are due August 6 and may be submitted on the adjacent form. A golf invitation is a wonderful way to recognize and spend time with valued clients, friends, and family members! Individuals and couples are welcome to register and will be assigned to a team.

Golfer check-in begins at 9:00 am the day of the event. Refreshments will be provided, along with an opportunity to hit a few practice balls on the driving range. The four-person-team best-ball competition begins with a shotgun start at 10:00 am. Box lunches and beverages will be supplied on-course, and a reception will follow the golfing to recognize team and individual contest winners. Registration includes 18 holes of best-ball golf, cart rental, morning refreshments, lunch, and the concluding reception with awards.

Proceeds from the golf outing provide support for the AASV Foundation as it seeks to “Ensure our future…create a legacy” for swine veterinarians. Income generated by the endowment enables the foundation to fund programs such as the swine externship grants for senior veterinary students, travel stipends for students attending the AASV annual meeting, and funding for research with direct application to the profession.
