From Brooks Downing:

Jimmy –

Many thanks to forwarding this email to the CKFOA membership. As you know, I served as an official with the CKFOA from 1984-95. I also worked in the Mid South, and my last game was serving on a crew comprised of George Lusby, Julian Tackett, Rick Day and others working the 1995 NAIA National Championship game in Oklahoma. And honestly, here 20+ years later, I miss those Friday nights more than I can share.

As we discussed, I’m now own and manage an events company, and we’re proud to be bringing the Barbasol Championship to Central Kentucky, the state’s only PGA TOUR event, July 16-22 at Champions at Keene Trace near the Jessamine County/Fayette County line.

We are looking for as many as 1,000 volunteers, and to date, we’ve signed up about 700 volunteers. I’ve attached a one-pager and I’m hoping that there may be a contingency of officials who would like to work our tournament.

At the end of the day, this is a charity event. We are set to raise significant funds ($300,000+) here in year one for Kentucky-based charities, but we need a few more folks to help us reach our staffing goals. Please note, you don’t have to be a golfer, or a golf fan, to make an impact. There are plenty of jobs to go around!

Any help the CKFOA can provide by circulating the attached document would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you!
