Held in September and Co-Hosted with Professional Pilots Association

COAGO 2012 Banner

Every year in September, Central Ohio aviators look forward to this day of golf with their friends and coworkers. This year, we had beautiful weather and 151 players teed off to enjoy a day of relaxation, food and raffle prizes for our local aviators, sponsors and guests.

This event, which is co-hosted by the Professional Pilots Association (PPA), has been the main fundraiser for the COPAMA Scholarship Fund which provides monetary awards for tuition and testing fees of local student Aviation Maintenance Technicians. While we still have a few expenses to be determined, the event proceeds will keep the fund ready to help those who request testing scholarship help for next year.

Message from Golf Outing Chairman, Joe Lippert

2012 brought us the tenth anniversary of the Central Ohio Aviation Golf Outing. We just could not have asked for a better day to have the event! We worked with a full field of 152 golfers for this year’s outing and the course seemed to be in great shape after sustaining heavy damage from summer storms back in July. I was able to play the course after those storms and witnessed first-hand the damage they left behind.

Through the generosity of our vendors, Dallas Airmotive, Standard Aero, and Duncan Aviation, golfers started the day with a fresh sleeve of golf balls, new towels, tees, and ball markers. The weather was just perfect for some fun and great golf as Team Bafia came in after 6 hours on the course with a winning score of 57, followed by Aircraft inspection Services with a score of 58, with Team West Star rounding out the podium with a score of 59. We almost had a putt-off like the one in 2011.

Golf was followed by a great lunch provided by Bombardier as our lunch sponsor again this year. A post lunch raffle supplied excitement for all as generous donations by Aero Battery, Hawker Beechcraft, Comlux, Lane Aviation, Standard Aero, Constant Aviation, Duncan Aviation, Cap City Jet, Tool Testing Lab, and others were raffled off to the ticket buying crowd.

Please join us next year for the 11th edition of COAGO. Mark your calendars now for the first Friday after Labor Day. Until then, see you next year!

Joe Lippert
COAGO Chairman
