Every year the Carlisle Barracks/ Cumberland Valley Chapter of theAssociation of the United States Army (AUSA)  sponsors a golf outing in the month of August.  The tournament serves as a "get acquainted"event, welcoming members of the new Army War College Class.  Many of the corporate members of the chapter and other local businesses donate door/drawing prizes and sponsor holes as a means of advertising and showing their support for the fine members of our armed forces whose dedicated service provides security for us and others around the world. Every participant goes home with a prize of some sort and all players have a chance at winning the use of a new car by scoring a hole-in-one.
This event is the chapter's only fund raising event of the year and produces
the only revenue other than the normal return of our share of association dues from the national headquarters of AUSA.  In other words, we count on this tournament to finance the myriad of troop support activities conducted by the chapter each year. This year's tournament will be held on August 23d at our usual venue, the Carlisle Barracks Golf Course.  We invite everyone to participate; you do not have to be a member of AUSA. There will be lots of drawing prizes and a great silent auction, so bring your wallets and/or your checkbook.  Sign up for the competition will be in the club house at the end of July 2014.  Fliers for the event will be distributed by chapter newsletter and other means starting in June.

Results of the 2013 Tournament
The Chapter’s Summer 2013 Golf Outing & Get Acquainted Scramble was held on August 24th at our normal venue, the Carlisle Barracks Golf Course.  Terry Myers, the "Pro" at the course, provided prizes for the top six teams, long drives, straightest drive, and two closest to the pin awards.  While the event was a fund raiser, the cost to enter was minimal; only $30.00 for club members and $50.00 for non-members and this price included the tournament entry fee, a cookout, prizes,  carts and green fees (for nonmembers).  We hope, by keeping the cost low, to encourage participation by as many active soldiers, retirees and civilians as possible in the area. The minimum cost of hole sponsorship was also very modest, $100.00.  We did offer sponsors the opportunity to contribute at five different levels this year: Army Green, Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum (See sponsorship list below).  Our distinctive hole sponsor signs recognized the support of our Sponsors and provided them with attractive, low-cost advertising for their business or organization.  The 2013 Annual Get Acquainted Scramble enjoyed ideal weather conditions and the course was in magnificent shape, thanks to Terry Myers and his staff.  Once again, the turnout was outstanding with approximately 100 players taking the course for the competition. Since the golf outing is the Chapter's main source of revenue each year, we were very pleased with the response from Chapter Corporate Members, local businesses and individuals to our request for Hole Sponsorships and Prize Donations.  We wish to acknowledge all who contributed to this record-setting year for the tournament. Thanks to the diligence of many Chapter Board Members and friends of the Chapter, we were fortunate to secure fifty-four Hole Sponsorships:

We are very grateful to all our Sponsors, Donors, Board Members,

Friends of the Chapter, and the many golfers who participated in

our 2013 Annual Get Acqainted Scramble.



The event's success was due in large part to the terrific teamwork of members of the Chapter Board of Directors:  Ron Elliott, Jerry Comello, Neal Delisanti, Bill Seely, George Woods, Jim Dunn, Patti O'Keefe and Ed Filiberti.  Everyone pitched in filling goodie bags, stapling donor sheets & hanging banners in the pavilion, unloading the truck, arranging the silent auction and drawing prize tables, handing out goodie bags, putting out/retrieving hole sponsor signs, taping winning tickets to prizes, placing water bottles in each cart, talking up the Silent Auction & Special Raffle, judging the hole in one attempts and assisting with the ticket drawings and all the end-of-tournament “wrap up” details. The Chapter extends special thanks to Del Chastain and Bill Seely who teamed up to judge the hole in one tries and to Patti O'Keefe,  Emily Filiberti, Jennifer Delisanti and Carol Sloan. Their help was instrumental in our achieving the high number of ticket sales that contributed greatly to the overall record profit for this year’s event.  Also, thanks to Emily, Patti, Jennifer and Carol for their work on the Silent Auction Table and to Emily for sorting the winning tickets for taping to the boards.   And, a big thank you to Neal Delisanti for taking all those great photos!  Of course, we all appreciate the great support we receive every year from Terry Myers and his management team.  Their efforts always add an aura of professionalism to the tournament as well as providing a great meal for everyone.  This year, the Special Raffle for a set of Adams Tight Lies golf clubs, irons, fairway woods, driver, putter, and golf bag was won by Rich Fair.  Rich also won the fifty-fifty drawing and went home with $218.00.  The winners of the individual skills competition were:
