Let's Go ALL IN at the Annual International Meeting!

During ASABE's Annual International Meeting several activities give members and guests the opportunity to enjoy networking and have fun while supporting the Foundation at the same time. In 2018, money raised from the activities shown below supported the KEYS Fund. 

Be sure to keep Foundation activities in mind as you plan your annual meeting itinerary each year.

Gale Holloway Memorial Golf Outing
Sunday, July 29, 8:00am tee time
$110 includes green fees, cart rental & lunch. 

Enjoy a nice morning on one of Detroit’s hidden gems, the Rouge Park Golf Course. The tranquil setting boasts an abundance of wildlife, making you completely forget you're in the city. The golf course was carved from rolling hills and includes the winding Rouge River. The difficulty of the course is balanced by the wide, player-friendly fairways. Participants do not have to be skilled golfers as our rules allow for and encourage contributions to improve scores.
