Angus Supporters Brave the Weather to Support 6th Annual Angus Foundation Golf Tournament


Not even a torrential rainstorm could stop 60 golfers from hitting the links to support the Angus Foundation during the 2006 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) in Indianapolis, Ind.  Prairie View Golf Club, Carmel, Ind., hosted 15 teams of Angus enthusiast July 11 for the sixth annual Angus Foundation Golf Tournament, which raised more than $24,000 to support the Foundation’s education, youth and research activities.

“With a new record of 64 generous sponsors, this year’s golf tournament was another successful fundraiser for the Angus Foundation,” said Foundation President Milford Jenkins.

The rain may have shortened the day from an 18-hole tournament to just 9-holes, but it certainly didn’t damper the players’ spirits, who were happy to enjoy a Certified Angus Beef® steak lunch at the awards ceremony, compliments of Lombardi Brothers Meats of Denver, Colo.

“It was pretty wet this year but definitely well worth it,” said William Wing of Brooksville, Fla., a second-year player in the tournament and a member of the National Junior Angus Association.  “I like playing in the Foundation’s golf tournament, because it gives you a day’s break from the bustle of the show barns while you’re still involved in a fun Angus activity.”

The winning team, representing Cedar Creek Farm, Donalds, S.C., included players Ted Bourne and Chris Perry, both of Donalds, S.C.; and Mike Steadman and Brad Burton, both of Greenwood, S.C.  Second-place team members included the father-son pair of Jeff Creamer and Brandon Creamer, both of Montrose, Colo.; Dick Rogen of Brandon, S.D.; and Scott Bush of Britton, S.D.  The third-place team hailed from Minnesota and included players Randy Mitteness and sons Mark and Ryan, all of Ada, Minn.; and Lynn Ewald of Waldorf, Minn.

“We’re very appreciative of the players and sponsors who help make this event possible for the Angus Foundation and who allow us to advance our education, youth and research activities for the betterment of the entire Angus breed,” Jenkins said,  “We invite others to share in this fun activity with us in Tulsa, Okla., in July 2007.”

The Angus Foundation was established in 1981 as a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization to support Angus education, youth and research.  To learn more about the Angus Foundation and the programs it supports, call the American Angus Association at (816) 383-5100 or go to www.angusfoundation.org.
