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.
2007 - THIRD ANNUAL GWBAA GOLF OUTING A SUCCESS
On October 15, 2007 the sun was out, the sky was blue, the course was in great shape, and over 80 GWBAA members and their guests enjoyed a wonderful round of golf, an opportunity to network, and an excellent lunch.
