New Course! Lower Fees! More ways for young lawyers and interns to attend!
On Tuesday, June 5, we will start a new chapter of the FCBA Golf Tournament by moving to the 1757 Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia. Managed by Billy Casper Golf, 1757 Golf Club is known for its pristine golf course and beautiful facilities, and is located close to downtown DC. Thanks to the shrewd negotiating skills of the Golf Committee, we were able to substantially reduce the cost of the Tournament, so now there is no excuse to join your colleagues for a wonderful afternoon of fun.
In addition, even if you cannot attend, you can help “rebalance” the demographic tilt of the tournament by directly contributing to this effort by donating $50 to the Golf Stipend fund. Such funds would be applied to assist young FCBA lawyers, law students, clerks, and interns with the golf fees and allow them to join the tournament.
But we aren’t changing everything! We’ve decided to stick with scheduling the Tourney in the afternoon this year so that our workaholic friends can get in a few hours at the office (or plenty of time to warm up on the range). Shotgun start will be at 1:00 p.m. followed by a delicious post-round Buffet BBQ Dinner.
As always, all of the proceeds from the Tournament go straight to the FCBA Foundation to support its wonderful programs, including the Scholarship programs and the Summer Legal Internship program. Over the years, the Tournament has raised over $400,000 for the FCBA Foundation charities, all under the auspices of getting together with your colleagues for an enjoyable day of golf! Our goal and motto: “What a great concept: Do good and have fun at the same time!” We hope you can join us this year!
