So You Think You Can Golf?
Show Us at Isleta at Hard Rock on July 29th

     With fabulous hole-in-one prizes on the course and the door prize pledges accumulating, excitement is building for the First Annual Facility Manager Association of New Mexico Scholarship Fundraiser Golf Tournament.  The beautiful Isleta Eagle Championship Golf Course at Hard Rock is the setting for the event this year with range balls at 8 am and a 9 am tee time on Friday morning, July 29th, 2011.
Although the registration cut off date has passed, THERE IS STILL TIME to put in a team of players or sponsor a hole on the course.  Call Executive Director Carolee Griffin at 505-377-5309 for instant registration.

This annual event is the primary fundraiser event for scholarships benefiting students pursuing the mechanical trades at both the University of New Mexico and Central New Mexico Community College.  These students are the facility managers, engineers, and technical support straff of the future.

Players can register for the “best-ball/scramble” format where FMANM will pair you in an ABCD player format so all comers can enjoy the game, or form your own complete foursome to compete in the “championship” format.  Both tournaments will run   simultaneously with a shotgun start at 9 am. 

Enjoy fast play!  Our goal is to dominate all three “9”s at the golf course for this tournament.
PLEASE REGISTER TODAY!  This will be the informational, networking event of the year for facility manager and the suppliers who support them.  Don’t miss it!

Golfers cost $125.00 per player and the cost covers all greens fees including the buffet and awards, post- tournament.  Need more information?  Visit www.fmanm.com  or call Executive Director Carolee Griffin at 505-377-5309

Baseball was a Sold-Out Blast

     Members and guests of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico enjoyed a perfect evening at the Isotopes ballpark, “The Lab”, on Wednesday evening, June 22nd, 2011.  Unfortunately the ‘Topes lost a close one, 5 to 4, to the Oklahoma City Red Hawks.  The game sold out early and a trend towards “Company Night at the Ballpark” was set with National Roofing, Route 66 Casino, Tux Window Cleaning, and Quail Run buying up tickets for their hard-working employees.
See you again next year!
