Golf Outing Update–Saturday 4/19

Due to the heavy rain and course conditions, we are forced to cancel golf.  We will still have the auction starting at 9:30 am in the bar at the Oak Island Golf Club.  This will be followed by lunch.  Golfers who have already paid for their round will receive a raincheck from the course.

Golf Outing Still on For Saturday, April 19 Despite the Weather Forecast

Here’s a message from our organizer:

We are hoping the weather will cooperate on Saturday and allow us to get the golf in followed by lunch and the auction and raffles.  Please let your team members know we will be trying to get started at 9 a.m so it would be good to show up at least 30 or 40 mins earlier.  The course will be monitoring the weather and we could delay a bit if the weather is better by doing that.   We don’t have a rain date but if we can’t play golf we will
get rain checks for the golf and we’ll have the  auction, and raffles earlier and then end the day with lunch.   Please share this information with your other team members.   There are weather forecasts that show the showers ending early Sat and resuming late in the day.
