Join chamber for round of golf Friday

Published 12:00 am Monday, April 4, 2011

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 Friday, 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 18th Annual Chamber Golf Scramble. By popular demand, this year a round robin mixed-up doubles tennis tournament has been added as well.

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 each other’s company outside the business arena. The four-person scramble format allows golfers of all skill levels to get out and have some fun. Or you also have the opportunity to win a Chevy Cruz from Great River with a hole in one.

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 p.m. at the tennis courts. Music will be provided by Rosco on the Radio, and we are pleased to announce that members of the well-known Steckler family will be on site carrying on the tradition of roasting a pig. A helicopter golf ball drop will take place at 6 p.m. For a chance at winning $1,000, you may purchase a golf ball drop ticket for $20. Each ball is numbered and the one that goes in the hole 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. René Adams and gang has been busy lining up a great lunch to start off the day’s events, 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, or drop 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.

Kay Ketchings is the 2011 Natchez-Adams Chamber of Commerce chairman.
