A total of 164 golfers took to the links at the annual MCTA Bill Mullen Memorial Golf Tournament at Lake Forest Country Club, Lake Saint Louis, on June 12. Twenty-four Missouri cable industry celebrities were on hand, as well.
Rain claimed the day when both the a.m. & p.m. flights were called after completing just one hole each.
The participants then gathered at the club house, where operators, programmers, and vendors networked and forged business and personal relationships. The silent auction and raffle were held, with many purchasing or winning donated premium items such as a Garman GPS, Blackberry phone, baseball and football tickets, superb wines and cigars, and HBO leather jackets, among other things.
A dinner at Bristol’s the evening prior to the golf event offered an opportunity for 42 major sponsors and volunteers to meet and socialize.
Tim Easley, with Inspiration Networks, received special recognition during the dinner/awards ceremony. Easley has been the catalyst in making the golf tournament better each year. He had served on and chaired the golf committee for many years. His unceasing efforts have been instrumental in making the event the success it is today. Hats off and a big thanks to Tim!
Our 2011 Bill Mullen Memorial Golf Tournament is scheduled for June 21, 2011…so mark those calendars!
