Thanks attendees and sponsors!

PWA Eastern Regional Golf Outing was a hit!

Thanks to all our participants yesterday for a great outing, the biggest and best yet that will benefit organizations like Penn State Hersey Children's Hospital and the Hubble Foundation.  Thank you Jacobs for being our event sponsor and those terrific jerseys that we will all be wearing shortly.

We welcome your feedback on Philmont as a future venue and, of course let us know what we did wrong or right to make it better for next time.
