Are you ready to have some fun?

Well, it is that time of year for the classic Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce Golf/Tennis tournament.  Take a break for some much needed rest and relaxation and come join us for some fun at Duncan Park on April 7 for our 24nd Annual Chamber Golf/ Tennis Tournament.

This entertaining, yet slightly competitive event, has been scheduled 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.  You will also have the opportunity to win a 2017 Chevy Malibu and a 2017 GMC Canyon both generously donated by Great River Chevrolet.  A trophy is given to the team to keep for a year.  Last year’s winner was Merit Health. We also have a great traditional doubles tennis tournament for tennis enthusiasts.

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 Big River Broadcasting and Natchez Pathology, and Wesley Steckler from Terry Estes State Farm will provide their traditional roasted pig.  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 or 6 tickets for $100.  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 purchase your tickets.

The day’s activities will begin with registration at 10 a.m. registration/play for tennis and 11 a.m. registration for golfers, lunch at 11:30 a.m. and golfers will start play at 1 p.m.  Rolling River Roasters and Natchez Specialties 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 may sign up by calling 601-445-4611, or emailing Natchezchamber@natchezchamber.com  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.
