The Hawkeye Area Labor Council annual golf outing will take place this year on August 15th. Like previous years, the tournament will be held at Wildcat Golf Course in Shellsburg.

The tournament is a four person best shot and the cost is $200 per team. All proceeds will be donated to Eastern Iowa Honor Flight. The price of the team also includes your cart and a meal for your team.

This year there will be two sessions. The first group will tee-off at 8 a.m. and the second group will start at 1 p.m.

Organizers are also looking for a few more hole sponsors for the event. If you know of a business that may be interested, have them contact Rick Moyle, Executive Director. He can be reached at (319) 396-8461.

I've played this event the last few years and really had a lot of fun. It's a great group of people and it always feels good giving back to the Eastern Iowa Honor Flight. I'll be playing again this year, I just hope I hit the ball a little better then I did last year!

I want to thank the Hawkeye Area Labor Council for putting this event on every year. I hope even more money can be raised for this great charity next month at Wildcat in Shellsburg.

The tournament organizers would like all teams to register by August 7th. To learn more about Eastern Iowa Honor flight, click on this link.

I hope to see you on August 15th in Shellsburg!
