NWR Builders Exchange 2021 Golf Outing Recap

08/24/2021

58th Annual Golf Outing And Dinner RECAP

Thursday, August 12, 2021 ~ Wild Ridge Golf Course

If you did not attend the golf outing this year, you missed a great event.  The weather was beautiful (even if the late morning rains threatened our little party) – the rest of the day was warm and breezy – PERFECT!  The golf course was beautiful! The food was delicious!  All 37 foursomes teed off at 11:45 on Wild Ridge.  The golfing went well with most golfers finishing up in a more than five hours. 

We were happy to host this event in a little more “normal” circumstance and we hope we can continue hosting events this way.  We are always seeking feedback on this event – negative or positive.  If you attended and have a critique – we want to know.  If you did not attend because of something – we want to know.  We want to hear from you!

 

Thank you to all of you who support this event and the others that NWR Builders Exchange hosts throughout the year.

We would like to thank everyone who participated; it is your participation and enthusiasm that makes our exchange a success. The Golf Committee: Casey Kretz and Jon Sorenson;  the Board of Directors together with the staff at Wild Ridge Golf Courses deserve a lot of credit for a well-organized event.

Special thanks to...

  • Diane Langford of Langford’s Caulking and Sally Pettis of Market & Johnson, and Tim Frederick of Superior Building Specialty Products.   Consider volunteering next year, it's a great time - ask anyone listed above!
  • All of our Golf Hole Sponsors and door prize donors (See list on this flyer).  Especially those who manned their holes giving out prizes, goodies, etc.:  Five Star Telecom, Eau Claire Insulation, Chippewa Valley Energy, Hot Water Products and Huffcutt.  You all add a lot of fun to an already fun event!
  • All of the Board of Directors who helped out throughout the day -  whether it was selling playing cards, helping me sell raffle tickets, handing out pin event winner envelopes or lending me a hand when needed – all of it was greatly appreciated. 
  • Culligan Water Conditioning for donating water for our golfers out on the course. 
  • Wild Ridge Golf Course for donating the golf package which we raffled off (proceeds go towards our scholarship fund) along with allowing us to use their beautiful facilities to put on this fabulous event.  Tim & Lisa and their entire staff do a tremendous job with everything.  A special shout out to pro Jim Buyze who has been my right hand man at the golf course the past 17 years and will be leaving this year.
  • Signart who donated the labor and materials for making our signs
  • Randy Schenk who was my golf committee chair from 2002 to 2020.  Randy “retired” from our board of directors this past year and was still willing to be our emcee for the evening awards ceremony.
