Registration is now underway for the 26th annual Industry Appreciation Day, including a golf tournament and dinner, to be held at Goose Pond Colony Lake Course on Thursday, Oct. 17 at 12 noon.

Co-sponsored by the Jackson County Economic Development Authority and the Mountain Lakes Chamber of Commerce, the activities offer an opportunity for representatives of industry and businesses throughout the county to join with elected officials and community leaders for an afternoon of fun, fellowship and good-natured competition.

The golf tournament will be a best ball scramble format between four-man teams. Redstone Federal Credit Union is a Gold sponsor.

Closest-to-the-Pins is sponsored by Goose Pond Colony Resort, Longest Putt by Harbin Automotive, Range Balls by Peoples Independent Bank, Drink Cart by Reed Hollywood Quarry, Boat snacks and refreshments by Mr. Rooter and Reed Hollywood Quarry.

The grand prize will be two airline tickets to anywhere in the continental U.S. from the Huntsville Airport Authority.

Other sponsorships are still available to get your name out to the golfers.

Industry teams will be competing against consistently strong contenders from Maples, WestRock, PHP and others. To be included in the Industry Division, all four-team players must be employed by the industry they are representing.

An open division winner will be named as well. Team prizes will be awarded in each division as well as overall individual prizes including closest to the pin, longest drive and longest putt.

A lake cruise for non-golfers will depart the gas dock at 1:30 p.m. and return at 4 p.m. The dinner will be served immediately after the tournament around 5 p.m. Spaces are still available for all functions.
