We are saddened to announce that the CABA 2020 Golf Tournament
has been canceled.
Under the current circumstances with the restrictions and
procedures imposed on social interactions, golf courses, and food and
beverage service, as well as considering paramount everyone's health during
this time, the board decided that it would be most prudent to forego this
Since the golf tournament is our biggest fundraiser of the year
for our scholarship program, we are also mindful of the significant challenges
being faced by all who participate, from players and volunteers to sponsors,
donors, and raffle item contributors. The business shutdowns and quarantines
caused by the pandemic has severely impacted the economic health of all
businesses, and very dramatically those in our industry. While scholarships are
an important means to provide support for the future vitality of the aviation
workforce, to ask sponsors for contributions while they themselves struggle to
survive was something we felt was not in anyone's best interest.
The board, and in particular Amber Channel the golf chair,
sincerely appreciate all of you who had signed up and were so flexible in
trying to meet the continually changing demands of the situation. Refunds are
being provided to those who requested them, and we are extremely grateful to
those who chose to either donate or carry over their fees and sponsorships to next year.
We look forward to June 17, 2021, when we will once again be able to host a premier golf outing for our industry friends and colleagues rather than the poor substitute this year's event would have been.
