Winning Teams and Awards


Welcome to COAGO 2014!

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 filled the course for a forth straight year. 138 players teed off on September 5th 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. Your participation helps the event proceeds keep the fund ready to help those who request testing scholarship help for next year.

Volunteers and Vendors!

The whole event would not be possible without the volunteers and vendors that provide the scheduling, food and elbow grease that a golf outing requires. First acknowledgments go to Dave Fragale and Joe Lippert who have been planning since last year and lead the other volunteers during setup. Next the management and staff of Kyber Run Golf Course for helping make the change of venue easy. The many changes to this years event came off with little or no problems.


Our Food Vendors were Boss Hogg's BBQ of Pataskala and Giant Eagle Catering of Dublin.
The food was savory and there was plenty to go around.


Rounding out the list were those who always step up and do whatever needs done. Earl Redmond took care of finances and worked with Chuck Jenkins, setting up the Beverage Carts, Raffle Prizes and dinner items. Shirley and Ralph Graves sold raffle tickets and helped with the drawing at the end of the outing. Victoria Seger and Lowell Dowler photographed the event and took the team photos. Those are available to view on our Photo Gallery page using the pull-down menu to COAGO 2014.

Last but not least are those smiling faces of the Beverage Cart Drivers as they wove their way around the course to provide refreshments and snacks to the Golfers. They were Bill Otte and Alan Monk from Duncan Aviation, Marie Fura for Honeywell, Lorna Smallwood and Dawn Wilson for Turbine Engine Specialists and Tami Autullo and Lisa Thompson for World Fuel. There's something about a beverage cart pulling up that helps make that last slice or worm-burner seem a little better.

2014 Message from Golf Chairman, Dave Fragale

The 12 Annual COAGO golf outing is in the bag. I don't think we could have asked for a better event. The sky was clear and the weather was beautiful. We had a full field this year, thank you to all the sponsors and everyone who participated, this outing wouldn't be possible without each and every one of you.

We had a tie for first place this year that had to be settled with a putt off. West Star Aviation #2 and Freeman Flying Service posted an exceptional 13 under. Matt Jones and Thomas Freeman met at the putting green with one shot at a greater than 50 foot putt to either sink it or whoever gets closer. Matt Jones came up at the victor coming closer to the hole by a margin of 4 feet.

I would like to thank all of our sponsors and vendors who give so generously of their time to play in the outing, donate raffle prizes, and sponsor the event.

Dave Fragale
