We hope all our members join us September 7-9, 2016 for the 2016 Gearhart Business Seminar to add another year of memories to the already rich and respected tradition in Oregon’s automotive industry.
For questions regarding the event please contact Kylee Gazzigli at 503.233.5044 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The annual golf tournament is held at the historic Gearhart Golf Links on the North Oregon Coast. Gearhart Golf Links, established in 1888, is the oldest course in the Northwest and arguably the oldest course in the Western United States. This classic links-style 18-hole course plays 6,429 yards from “The Stones” and 5,157 yards from the forward tees.
Thursday Golf Format (Shotgun Start)
Friday Format (Shotgun Start)
MUST PLAY GOLF BOTH DAYS
Not much of a golfer? Join us Thursday and Friday for a fishing excursion, sure to excite no matter your skill level of salt water angling. The early bird gets the worm and that’s when fish are biting…EARLY! Make sure if you aren’t golfing this year, you have a fishing tale to leave with and the potential to win prizes for largest fish, smallest fish and most fish.
Fishing license with salmon tag required.
Cornhole, also known as tailgate toss, bean bag toss, corn toss or bags is a lawn game in which players take turns throwing bags of corn (or sand/beans) at a raised platform with a hole at the far end. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point. Play continues until a team of two players reaches a score of 21. Format is single match elimination NCAA bracket style with cash prizes going to 1st, 2nd, and quarter finalists. Event is played Thursday September 8th, after dinner, with finals on September 9th.
Now you’re probably thinking, “What the heck is a honey pot and how does it relate to golf?” Luckily, this activity doesn’t involve bees but it can get pretty sweet for three pairs of golfers. A “Honey Pot” is a name for a golf tournament’s bonus pool or prize fund.
A horse race might seem out of place on the golf course, but this form of competition, also known as a shootout, is played at country clubs nationwide. In the golf horse race, one player is eliminated per hole until only one player is left at the end of 18 holes. Think of it as match play in the extreme.
Broth-er-hood (n): Those engaged in a particular trade or profession or sharing a common interest or quality. The belief that all people should act with warmth and equality toward one another, regardless of difference in race, creed, nationality, etc.
Our goal is to unite in a common space where we may rise above our differences and focus on the commonalities that have brought us together each year since 1925. Gearhart’s Annual Business Seminar & Golf Tournament reminds us how our forefathers, together, created Oregon’s auto industry and how, together, we will continue to grow the very industry they began.
