For five months, the monthly Tri-County Labor Club meetings have been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Steve Bailey, president of the Tri-County Labor Club, says their upcoming golf tournament is a chance to get the old gang together again.
The annual Greg Booth/Jack Van Horn golf tournament will be held on Sept. 19, at the Country Lakes Golf Course in Warrenton, Bailey said. But with no Labor Club meetings, no announcements have been made and few seem to know that one of the Club’s biggest fundraisers is still being held this year.
“We should be filled up right now,” Bailey said. “But I don’t know, things are kind of crazy with the coronavirus.”
Proceeds from the tournament support the Club’s political activities to help elect Labor-friendly candidates. And with this being a crucial an election year, funds are needed more than ever.
Bailey said tournament organizers are taking appropriate precautions to comply with health guidance related to the coronavirus.
- LIMITS ON THE COURSE – The 18-hole four-person scramble will include three flights with prizes awarded for nearest to the hole and longest drive. Entry fee of $90 per golfer includes green fee, shared cart, and refreshments. Hole sponsorships are $100. There is a two-person limit per cart, and a limit of 144 golfers on the course.
- DINNER – The usual post-tournament dinner has been replaced with a socially distanced outdoor program, with burgers, hot dogs and beverages.
“We’re keeping it casual so everyone can social distance,” Bailey said.
