Eleventh Annual GWBAA Golf Tournament - September 10, 2015 at the 1757 Golf Club

On September 10, GWBAA hosted its eleventh annual golf tournament at the 1757 Golf Club.  Sponsors and golfers came out to support GWBAA, the Aero Club Foundation of Washington, and the Corporate Angel Network.  GWBAA raised $2,500 for the Aero Club and $3,000 for Corporate Angel Network.  Rain came in quickly at the end.  Some golfers headed in to avoid getting soaked while others were committed to finishing the course. Some photos can be found on our Facebook page.  We thank all the volunteers, sponsors, and golfers who made the day possible, and we look forward to next year.  If you have any suggestions, recommendations, or ideas to make next year’s tournament even better, please contact Dan Walker at daniel.walker@flightsafety.com. 

Tenth Annual GWBAA Golf Tournament Held at the 1757 Golf Club

GWBAA hosted its 10th annual golf tournament at the 1757 Golf Club in Ashburn, Virginia earlier this month.  Over 75 members participated in the event, which benefited both the Aero Club of Washington's charitable foundation and the Corporate Angel Network (CAN).  Thanks to the support from our membership and sponsors, Dan Walker and Paige Kroner of GWBAA presented the Aero Club Foundation with $1,500 and the Corporate Angel Network with $3,520 to help each organization support their mission.  Additionally, Sharp Details graciously donated an extra $500 to CAN while at the tournament.

GWBAA would like to thank all our sponsors for their generous support.  We look forward to seeing everyone again next year for another round!

NINTH ANNUAL GWBAA GOLF TOURNAMENT HELD ON SEPTEMBER 18, 2013

On September 18, GWBAA hosted its ninth annual golf tournament at the 1757 Golf Club. The event benefited the Aero Club of Washington Foundation's educational programs; at the end of the event, Paige Kroner and Harry Houckes presented a check for $1500 to Bob Blouin.  GWBAA thanks looks forward to seeing everyone next yearandthanks its sponsors:

2012 - EIGHTH ANNUAL GOLF TOURNAMENT

On September 12th, GWBAA held its 8th Annual Golf Tournament. The weather was a perfect warm fall day with a bright sun over the 1757 Golf Club. 70 golfers enjoyed a great day on the links in support of GWBAA and the Aero Club Foundation of Washington. They also raised $1,500 for the Corporate Angel Network through mulligans. 

This year brought a record number of sponsors, many joining GWBAA for the first time. The 18th Hole host a new contest with the help of Winslow Life Raft, as we attempted to chip golf balls into a life raft in the water trap. No one made it. Maybe next year? (No one survived "Survivor Ball" either as each foursome was to play with a "special ball" and return it to the club house.)

GWBAA would like to thank all our participants, sponsors, and volunteers that made the day possible. The entire event takes a year to plan and prepare for. The day together on the links is always the pay off. We look forward to seeing you all next year. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please let us know.

2011 - SEVENTH ANNUAL GOLF TOURNAMENT

On September 21, 50+ golfers joined GWBAA at the 1757 Golf Club for our Seventh Annual Golf tournament.  The weather held off for a nice fall day on the links.  GWBAA and its supporters raised $1,000 for the Corporate Angel Network.  The tournament also benefited the Aero Club of Washington Foundation.  Oakley Brooks was on hand to accept the donation raised by the tournament on behalf of the Aero Club.   Oakley described how the Aero Club helps high school students in the greater Washington area to learn about possible careers in the aviation and aerospace industries.

Finally, GWBAA would like to thank all those who came out to support this year’s tournament, whether golfer, sponsor (including all 19 listed below), or both.  Special thanks also go out to everyone behind the scenes that helped make the day possible.


2010 - GWBAA GOLFERS BRAVE THE WEATHER AND ENJOY THE DAY

This year’s golf tournament had been delayed for the tropical depression that rolled up the east coast on September 30th.  It was worth the wait. On October 13th, 47 golfers came out to support GWBAA and enjoy a day on the links at the 1757 Golf Club.  Despite a slight drizzle in the middle, the weather held off for a cool day on the course.  The 1757 Golf Club opened this spring to 18 holes and was in fine shape despite the dry summer.  The course offered a new venue for GWBAA and a new set of challenges for the golfers.  Plans are in motion for next year’s event.  We hope to see everyone again.

GWBAA would like to thank all our sponsors who made the day possible:  Bombardier, Gulfstream, Embraer Executive Jets, Hawker Beechcraft, Landmark Aviation, Chantilly Air, Signature Flight Support, NBAA, AIRINC Direct, AVCARD/World Fuel Services, Rudy’s Inflight Catering, FlightWorks, and US Sedan.  A special thanks to all our volunteers who helped make this day happen.  GWBAA will contribute a portion of the funds generously raised to the Aero Club of Washington Fund.

2009 - GOLFERS ENJOY ANOTHER YEAR OF PLAY, DESPITE THE CHILL, FOR A GOOD CAUSE


On September 29, 2009, sixty participants made their way to GWBAA’s fifth annual golf tournament at the Herndon Centennial Golf Course.  Those that attended last year’s event no doubt remember the huge frost delay – to avoid the cold for this year’s golf tournament, our Board decided to move the date up a month.  But believe it or not the day was actually chilly (and the pro shop sold many sweatshirts that morning)! Thankfully, the cold didn’t delay our play or our fun We enjoyed a wonderful day of golfing, networking, door prizes, and the famous BBQ lunch.

GWBAA wants to sincerely thank those who made this year’s golf outing possible – especially our major sponsors Gulfstream, Bombardier, and Sharp Details.  Thank you to all our sponsors and volunteers for making this golf tournament a success!  GWBAA is again proud to contribute a portion of the golf tournament proceeds to the Aero Club Foundation of Washington.  The funds will be used to support aerospace education programs at public schools in the District of Columbia.

2008 - FOURTH ANNUAL GWBAA GOLF OUTING A SUCCESS

HERNDON (VIRGINIA) CENTENNIAL COURSE REPEATS AS HOST

It dawned very cold on Monday, October 20, but the sun came out and warmed the course and shined on all the golfers.  The outside temperature gauge read 31 degrees (F) on the drive to Herndon at 7am, so the forecast 67 degrees was a long way off.  This led to a 1hr 45 min frost delay, but everyone relaxed, enjoyed the great breakfast, had a few extra coffees, and began the mingling and contacting in earnest.  We didn’t plan it, but the delay actually brought the group closer together, which was a big plus.  A wonderful day for everyone.

There were sixty-one golfers, up from fifty last year.  We thank all our sponsors, once again, who made the golf outing possible especially our major sponsors Gulfstream, Bombardier, Welsch Aviation, Signature Flight Support, Air Routing, and Embraer.  And, we pay special tribute to Paige Kroner of Chantilly Air, who brought all the pieces together.
