Press release

It’s back to the links for the Eastern Sierra Music Festival and its Annual Golf Tournament fundraiser, set for Saturday, Sept. 17 at the Bishop Country Club.

This four-person scramble starts at 9 a.m. with a shotgun start. No handicap is required. Entry fees, which include dinner, are $50 for members and $75 for guests.

Tournament Chairman Bob Waggoner reminds everyone that last year’s tournament sold out, so early sign-ups are encouraged.

Waggoner said many Bishop and Mammoth Lakes individuals and businesses had come forward to donate some fantastic prizes, all to raise funds for the music festival’s second year.

Perry Motors has generously donated the Hole-in-One prizes, which include a new Honda.

Other prizes include: • A sight-seeing flight for two in a Cessna 182, donated by Jerry Core;

• A three-night cabin stay at Crowley Lake Fish Camp including a $100 boat rental credit, donated by John Fredrickson;

• A two-night stay at Shilo Inn on Mammoth Lakes complete with ski or snowboard rental, donated by Tom Cage, and;

• A guided fly fishing trip for two, donated by The Trout Fitter.

Waggoner said that’s just a few of the prizes donated to date, with many gift certificates for goods, services, and meals out given to the cause. Drawing tickets are available to the public.

To purchase, stop by Bishop County Club between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. and see the front desk staff. Cost is $5 each or five for $20 or 30 for $100.

To reserve your tournament spot, call Bishop Country Club at (760) 873-5828. For questions about the tournament, or to make a prize donation, call Bob Waggoner at (760) 873-8973.

The 2017 Eastern Sierra Music Festival will be held July 21-22 right here in Bishop at the TriCounty Fairgrounds. ESMF is a 501c3 non-profit organization.

ESMF’s chosen charity is The National Wounded Warrior Center, set to be built in Mammoth Lakes by Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra.
