Each year we gather a group of suppliers and employees from Ag Leader for a day of golf and events as a way to say thank you to all the people that help us provide you with the precision ag products you use today. Last Thursday, Ag Leader held their fourth annual Ag Leader/Supplier Golf Outing at Otter Creek Golf Course in Ankeny, Iowa. The suppliers that participate provide us with everything from circuit boards to touch screens to shipping services. This year's events included a "golf outift" contest and as you can see there were some very interesting outfits. (For more pics, visit our Facebook page.)
There were 128 participants in the four person best ball tournament - including 75 people from 45 suppliers traveling from Maryland, Colorado, Nebraska, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri and Iowa. The event provides great opportunities for Ag Leader employees to get to know many of the people that make what we do on a daily basis possible.
There were many prizes awarded to the participants this year. Trophies were awarded to the top three teams along with awards for the team who didn't fair too well and came in last. This year's championship team consisted of Travis Goedken, Minnesota Territory Manager and Damion Solverson, Warehouse Clerk, from Ag Leader and Jeremy Louge and Sue Watters from Old Dominion Freight Line and won with a score of nine under par. I unfortunately was not on a team that won an award this year as my team finished seven shots behind the leaders. Better work on my game for next year... thanks to everyone who participated, it was a fun event. Enjoy any golf you may do this summer!
