    2014 CSCMP Atlanta Roundtable 4th Annual Charity Golf Tournament:

    Benefitting the Atlanta Community Food Bank and the CSCMP Atlanta Roundtable Scholarship Fund

    Atlanta Roundtable CSCMP is hosting our 4th annual Golf Tournament on Friday, May 9th, 2014 and we would like you to join us for fun, networking and a round of golf this spring. You don’t have to be a skilled golfer to enjoy the fun and networking at this beautiful 18 hole course designed by Tom Fazio. Whether you like a sporting challenge or just like to be with other supply chain colleagues, May 9th is a day you should plan to be away from the office – mark your calendars now!

    Events during the day will include:

    • Shotgun start among four person teams to play 18 holes (all groups of players tee off simultaneously from different holes)

    • $250 Closest to Pin

    • $250 Longest drive competition

    • $10,000 & Additional Equipment prizes for Hole-in-one on all par 3’s

    • Gift Certificate $ for 1st thru 4th place finishers for each player

    • Awards Reception with more prizes and giveaways

    You can register individually or as a group. Since there will be teams of four to play the course, individuals and groups of less than 4 will be paired before the event – this is a great way to meet people! Carts, lunch and drinks will be provided, along with a gift bag for each participant. Contest prizes will also be awarded and event sponsors will provide some cool give-away items!

    If you are looking forward to the spring, you should book your calendar now for a day of networking with colleagues, friendly competition on the golf course and a breath of fresh air. How often can you do all of this and help others who need it most? Proceeds from the event will benefit a designated charity and the CSCMP Atlanta Roundtable’s Scholarship fund.

    We anticipate this event selling out quickly, so please register early to reserve your spot. If you have questions or interested in being on the list of this year’s sponsors, please contact Dave Maddox, CSCMP Golf Tournament Chair, at david.maddox@southernfreight.com
