THE WINNERS! No, not of the SUV (no hole-in-one this year), but the tournament. Josh Caron, John Cole, and Tobey Pineau captured 1st place gross (59).

This year’s golf tournament  was a huge success, with 128 golfers enjoying a perfect (if hot) day on the Bangor Municipal course July 14. There were winners, of course, and a lot of other folks who had plenty of fun, fellowship and valuable networking.

golf tournament winnersWe couldn’t have this great event or fulfill our mission to represent and promote the Maine’s forest products industry without the contributions and generous support of our sponsors.

Our thanks go out to everyone who helped, especially:

  • Brian Flewelling of Key Bank for helping out with this tournament for more than 10 years.
  • All the folks who contributed to the raffle, which raised $1,000.
  • Quirk Auto, sponsor of the driving range, where a lot of golfers got to hit balls free.
  • Varney Buick-GMC’s Hole-in-One sponsorship. All players received a $100 Travis Mathew gift card from Varney Buick-GMC. If you want to redeem the $100 value all you have to do is go to the dealership in Bangor and test drive a vehicle.
