PAGOSA SPRINGS, Colo. – La Plata Electric Association (LPEA) will host its annual Golf Tournament at the Pagosa Springs Golf Club, Saturday, June 16, 2018. Space is limited, and registration deadline is June 12.
Organized by LPEA’s line personnel, members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (Local IBEW 111 26A) based in Pagosa Springs, the LPEA Golf Tournament is open to all community members. Tournament proceeds this year will benefit ASPIRE, Medical Services and Education (formerly known as THRIVE).
A new incentive for community members to participate is a special “Hole-in-One” prize trip to Hawaii.
The tournament is a four-person scramble, with four flights beginning with a 9 a.m. shotgun start, rain or shine. Entry fee is $70 per person, which includes lunch, golf cart, $5,000 in prizes and more. The field will be limited to the first 34 teams registered. Hole sponsorships are also available to support ASPIRE, and independent donations are welcome.
Cash or checks (made payable to the “Brotherhood Fund”) will be accepted (no credit cards) via mail to LPEA, P.O. Box 305, Pagosa Springs, Colo. 81147, or in person at LPEA’s Pagosa Springs office, 603 S. 8th St.
