IMBC schedule includes golf tournament

The International Marina & Boatyard Conference is arranging a pre-conference golf tournament at Disney's Osprey Ridge course to raise funds for those looking to further their professional development in the marina industry.

IMBC, produced by the Association of Marina Industries, is scheduled for Feb. 1-3, 2012, at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The golf tournament is set for Jan. 31.

“We’re excited to add yet another networking opportunity to IMBC’s schedule,” AMI president and chairman Jim Frye said in a statement. “It is important to us to provide many opportunities, both professional and casual, for members of the industry to create connections, discuss business and socialize with old friends. Plus, we get to have fun while we raise funds for a great cause.”

The tournament will follow a modified shotgun format and will include lunch, as well as drinks and hors d’oeuvres, at the tournament’s closing reception. The cost to compete is $195 for individuals and $750 for foursomes.

Registration for IMBC is not required to play in the tournament. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Neil Ross Fund, a program for professionals who wish to receive discounts to participate in training offered through AMI and AMI’s subsidiary, the International Marina Institute.

Hole, product and beverage-cart sponsorships are available.
