TSMA hosts 27th annual Golf Social

About 80 people gathered for Tri-State Manufacturers’ Association’s 27th annual golf social, held at Tipsinah Mounds Golf Course near Elbow Lake on July 21, 2020. The day-long event included a best ball tournament, awards ceremony and boxed dinner. The weather cooperated beautifully. Despite misgivings about holding the event during the pandemic, TSMA is pleased to report profits of nearly $10,000 in support of manufacturing focused youth programs in the region!

The Golf Committee once again used an arbitrary approach to award team prizes:

  • 1st Place           Team Cosmos Enterprises/Productivity/Federated Ins/Diamond Buick GMC
  • 5th place           Team Productive Alternatives
  • 10th place         Team Ichor Systems/Voyager Industries  

TSMA sponsored cash prizes for the following proximity contests:

Closest to the Pin – Brittany Stoltman, Productive Alternatives
Longest Drive – Shane Schmidt, Pro-Tainer
Longest Putt – Kyle Rohlfs, Federated Insurance

The putting contest resulted in a record six people sinking the putt this year. The $170 prize money was shared by: Josh Huckle (Lowry Manufacturing Co.), Kyle Rohlfs (Federated Insurance) and John Muehlberg (Kern Laser Systems).

A total of 22 companies sponsored the 2020 golf social; thanks to each and every one for contributing to the success of the 27th annual fundraiser!  (See elsewhere for a complete list of sponsors.) Seven hole sponsors added an element of fun by hosting a game/giveaway and accompanying prizes:  Beaudry Oil – give away; Douglas Finishing – cooler casting; PROduction Workforce – frisbee toss; Productivity, Inc. – longest drive contest.

Cosmos Enterprises sponsored hole #2, where Alexandra Thorstad was on hand for the TSMA fundraiser “Pick, Place, Putt” - netting $335. Marilyne and Albert Morisette, Ichor Systems, graciously hosted the putting contest again this year. Thank you, Marilyne, Albert, and Alexandra for your volunteer support!

A special thank you goes out to PROduction Workforce for once again bringing something unique to the event. Team photos were captured by The PixSquad – photos were printed with enhanced graphics, and distributed to each player on site.

The 50/50 raffle, another popular TSMA fundraiser, paid out a record $480 this year! 

Last but not least - hats off to the 2020 Golf Committee: chair Deb Waldvogel (Doherty Staffing), Tom Mastellar (retired), and Dan Kotek (Ichor Systems).

Give the TSMA office a call to offer input regarding the 2021 Golf Social; additional committee volunteers are welcome! The 28th annual event is anticipated at Pebble Lake Golf Course in Fergus Falls in July 2021.
