The MN Section of AIPG's 11th annual Education Committtee golf scramble fundraiser will be held on Thursday, August 1, 2019.

 

Registration will open by June, but for now, please save the date (download the calendar file)!

Please note that we are able to accommodate walk-ins for the dinner/auction. 

 

We'll be golfing at the beautiful Prestwick Golf Club in Woodbury, MN.

 

Don't golf, no problem.  We have a large group of folks that don't golf and they participate in the dinner and auction.  Register for the dinner-only option and join us for an early dinner, auction, and networking!

 

This year, one of the showcase items up for bid is the following, beautiful, Giant Ammonoid & Orthoceras Plate (Devonian aged black limestone from Morocco)!

This specimen is 70-80 pounds and approximately 18"x24"x12"!
