4th Annual Golf Tournament and BBQ – Save The Date

SATURDAY,  June 8th,  2013

With the help of the city,  we have been able to move our Golf Tournament back to Saturday.  We hope that you can plan on joining us this year out on the Elephant Rocks Golf Course in the pine trees of the Coconino National Forest here in Williams, Arizona.  We will be having our delicious Deep-Pit BBQ for golfers and non-golfers after the Tournament.  The Tournament will be a 2-person scramble just like last year.   We have upped the ante with a $50,000 Hole-in-one contest.

If your coming from out of town, we would like for you bring your families.  There is a lot of things for them to do in our Route 66 town, Gateway to the Grand Canyon (TM) while you get to golf in the cool mountain air.  We will be arranging packages and discounts for the  families of the golfers at the area hotel, attractions and restaurants.

Stay tuned for more details.

Grant Submitted

We have assisted the City of Williams in preparing a pair of grant applicaitons to provide energy efficenncy upgrades for the Aquatic Center.

In the grants we were hoping to upgrade the following systems to help the City reduce its ongoing costs of running the facility.



3 – 100 Gal Gas Water Heaters 3 – Tankless Gas Water Heaters
Pool Pump More Efficient Pool Pump w/ VFD Controller
PoolPak ECC II Controller PoolPak ECC III Controller
29 – 125 Watt Metal Halide lights 29 – 80 Watt Inductive Florescent Lights

Combined, both of these grants totaled over $61,000.00 in energy efficency upgrades.

Wish us luck. It would be a great win for the city if we were to win both of the grants.
