     ASGA BBQ Committee Chair Frank Segura and ASGA President Travis McWhorter, are pleased to announce that "Benjamin Franklin" will be in attendance at the annual BBQ in the form of a GREAT GRAND PRIZE. One door prize winner will win a "Benjamin Franklin $100 bill" at this year's ASGA  BBQ on Oct 24th at Jimmy Clay.
     Ken Garrett. pictured with President Travis McWhorter,  made a hole-in-one earlier in the year and wanted to do something to celebrate his accomplishment. Ken decided to share with his fellow ASGA members by gifting $100 and presenting it to the winner. Ken was a very famous in the hockey world where he earned the nickname of "Gunner".  Please congratulate and thank Ken when you see him.
      Now how do you qualify for the door prize? You must buy a $10 BBQ ticket and be present at the drawing. No tickets will be sold after 4 o'clock on the Tuesday before the BBQ on October 17th and there will be no tickets sold at the BBQ!  Our BBQ order must be concluded the week before as we are having our meal custom cooked for us by Player's Catering.

      The $100 door prize will be drawn AFTER the BBQ and the awarding of other prizes. YOU HAVE TO BE PRESENT TO WIN. When the tickets are drawn for other prizes they will all be put back in a separate "hopper" so that at the end all will have a chance to WIN if you are PRESENT. Buy a ticket and be present at the end of the BBQ and you may be the lucky one to take "Benjamin Franklin" home with you.
      Things to do: Buy your ticket, sign up for golf, eat a wonderful meal, and digest comfortably knowing you have a chance to win a door prize. You do not have to play in the golf tourney, but you do have to have a BBQ ticket turned in to one of the Player's team and be present to be eligible for the door prizes to win. BE PRESENT!!

Greater Rewards Await Annual Championship Tournament Winners

    As with championships in the past, the ASGA will again supplement the money awarded as credit to winners of the Annual Championship Tournament. This has proved popular by the membership and profitable for the fortunate winners.
    Although the tournament registration has already produced a good turnout, the staff at Jimmy Clay will keep the registering process open until Monday. ASGA members should keep in mind that this tournament is only open to those who have played enough tournaments to meet the minimum number of handicap scores. Link to qualified list here.
    Players are reminded that the second day's tee time (Thursday) will be set by the staff at Jimmy Clay and groups will be formed based on flights and scores from the first day. As in the past, players will be competing with and against players in their own flight.
    Players should check the ASGA website on Wednesday evening following their Tuesday play for tee times and groups.

Lions Tee Times--Format Correction/Info

The format for the Lion Municipal event tomorrow , September 12, was listed incorrectly when first posted.  This has been corrected to be Total Net (2m)  and can be viewed from the link on the ASGA Status Home page.

Tee Time Issues/Openings
  • The players are listed by the order the names were entered during call-ins so the team headings are incorrect, i.e., they may or may not be correct teams (look at it as P1, P2, P3, P4) .
  •  Ray Ward was registered twice with different partners; 7:52 and 8:16
  • Paul Redden needs a partner at 10:08 due to late cancellation by partner 
  • Rudy Martinez is signed up but needs a partner
Other than that everything appears to be  in order!! :>)
