Welcome to COAGO 2018!

This year's Central Ohio Aviation Golf Outing was held Friday September 7th at the Willow Run Golf Course. The rain earlier in the week made for some extra hazards but the weather on game day changed from a foggy morning to a sunny warm afternoon.

This year's event entertained 120 golfers and made $8,110 with all proceeds going to the COPAMA Scholarship Fund. It's primary goal is providing help paying for certification testing of new AMTs. Thanks to all the Sponsors, Players and Volunteers that participated and Willow Run Golf Course and their staff that provided the venue!

A word from COAGO Chairperson - Joe Lippert

To All of You,

I want to thank all of you who sponsored and participated in COAGO2018 today. It turned out to be a great day for all of us. I was skeptical as I drove into the course this morning at 0545 with rain on my windshield, but it all turned out great!

This was our 16th year holding this event and year after year, you all step up and support COPAMA's effort to raise funds for FAA airframe and powerplant testing for Columbus State Community College students and the other philanthropic endeavors we pursue. 

Please know that I speak for the entire COPAMA board when I say that we are very grateful for your support and do not take one minute or one penny for granted. Thank you for your time, your support, and your effort to help make this outing a great success. I hope to see you all again next year, if not sooner. Until then, any feedback to make this event even better is strongly encouraged. Please tell us what you would like to see different, be it the day, the caliber of course(which ultimately means higher prices), or spot on the calendar. We are listening. 

We are always looking for people to join us at COPAMA. If you are looking for an opportunity to give back to the industry that puts food on your table, come join us. We will be taking applications for scholarships this fall. If you would like to see first hand where your dollars are going, join us in screening the most deserving students for scholarship dollars to pursue a career in aviation maintenance. 

Joe Lippert
COPAMA President

Hope to see you all next year!
