September 28, 2020

This past weekend the Mountain Air Pilots Association (MAPA) hosted their annual Airway Fairway golf outing. Modifications to the format, including lunch were revised, due to Covid-19. In spite of that we had a few more groups this year than in 2019. We had to do away with a shotgun start, and the long drive contest, but a fun time was had by the players (over eighty participated)!! Lunch was served between the ninth and tenth holes outdoors, and nobody noticed a difference from previous years.

Over eighty golfers participated in the event, with tee times starting at 8:50AM and concluding at 12:20PM, so the charity event occupied the Mountain Air golf course all day. The format was a scramble, with two tee shots required of every participant.

Our registration desk was manned by all the volunteers from the Mountain Air Community Fund (MACF), who do all the greeting of our participants, and work so hard to make sure all administrative matters are handled correctly. They sold all the mulligans for this year’s event too. It is this group that directs the funds we raise to local deserving Yancey County charities.

At the end of the day, everyone had a blast, including those who spent the weekend in rental units. This event only happens once a year, but what a fun time everyone had!! Congratulations to our winners, listed below.
