Chamber working in over-drive for event

Your Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce has been working in overdrive lately to fulfill its mission statement of providing an independent, representative voice for business and creating a positive business environment. On April 12, we are going to take a break for some much-needed rest and relaxation. We hope you will join us for some fun at Duncan Park with our 20th Annual Chamber Golf/ Tennis Tournament.

This fun, yet slightly competitive event has been taking place every spring and gives Chamber members and other interested participants a chance to network and enjoy one another’s company outside the business arena. The four-person scramble format allows golfers of all skill levels to get out and have some fun. You will also have the opportunity to win a 2013 GMC Terrain, a $50,000 GMC vehicle and other great prizes with a hole in one sponsored by Great River. Our tennis players will have the unique opportunity with a radar gun to “clock their serves.”

We are pleased to bring you many opportunities to get involved with this event. You may sign up as an individual or get a whole team together. You can promote your business through one of several different sponsorship levels, or you can simply attend the Chamber Business After-Hours scheduled to take place at 5:30 pm at the tennis courts. Music will be provided by Rosco on the Radio, and we are pleased to announce that Natchez Pathology and members of the infamous Steckler family will be on site cooking their traditional roasted pig. A “Master’s Tent” sponsored by Kelly’s Kids will broadcast the Master’s golf tournament throughout the day so everyone can stay atop of the Leader Board. A helicopter golf ball drop will take place at 6 p.m. For a chance at winning half of the pot, you may purchase a golf ball drop ticket for $20. Each ball is numbered, and the one that goes in or closest to the hole is the lucky winner. Call the Natchez Chamber at 601-445-4611 or stop by to get your ticket.

The day’s activities will begin with registration at 11 a.m., lunch at 11:30 a.m. and play starting at 1 p.m. Rene Adams and the gang have been busy lining up a great lunch to start off the day’s events (don’t forget the tuna burgers), and of course, the After Hours will provide more great food after a hard day of golf and tennis.

You can sign up by calling 601 445-4611, e-mailing Natchezchamber@natchezchamber.com, or coming by the Chamber office at 211 Main St. We look forward to a great day of fun and fellowship. As always, your support of the Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce is appreciated.
