LPEA Golf Tournament set for June 23

La Plata Electric Association (LPEA) will once again host its annual golf tournament at the Pagosa Springs Golf Course, Saturday, June 23. Space is limited and registration deadline is June 19.

Organized by LPEA’s line personnel, members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (Local IBEW 111 26A) based in the Pagosa Springs office, the LPEA Golf Tournament will benefit the Pagosa Springs Nurturing Center, which offers coaching, consultation, mentoring, advocacy and education for individuals, families and communities. Donations will also be accepted for the Darin Rome Memorial Scholarship for local music students.

“The LPEA Golf Tournament is an event that puts the ‘fun’ in ‘fund-raiser,’” said Mike Alley, LPEA district supervisor and event organizer. “Golfers can enjoy a day on the links, plus lunch, and are eligible for some $3,000 in prizes — on top of what we will raise for the Nurturing Center and for the scholarship fund established for our friend and colleague, Darin Rome, who passed away last year.”

The tournament is a four-person scramble, with four flights beginning with a 9 a.m. shotgun start, rain or shine. Entry fee is $65 per person, which includes lunch, golf cart, prizes and more. The field is limited to 36 teams. Hole sponsorships are available for $150.

Since the LPEA Golf Tournament’s inception in 2003, the event has become a tradition and has raised more than $25,000 for a variety of nonprofit entities in Archuleta County, including the Hospice of Mercy and Archuleta County Victim Assistance.
