Musings on the Cancellation of Bonanza Day 52!


Earlier in July we had to make the  decision to cancel this year’s Bonanza Day due to Covid19.  I’m sure it was the right thing to do, but it was one of the most difficult decisions I’ve had to make. Then  waking up to blue skies, low humidity, decent temperatures, and calm seas this morning – made it even harder.     Probably the first time  in over 5 years to have such  perfect weather with no rain on what would have been our golf tournament.    But MORE IMPORTANTLY we hope that everyone stays safe during this pandemic.

AGC has been blessed to have a large contingent of  Bonanza Day volunteers that helps makes this event a huge success and a large group of members who participate in all aspects – golfing, fishing, and landtrolling!    I’d like to thank all who come back year after year to participate in this fun event.
We miss seeing everyone and the camaraderie that Bonanza Day brings.

I would be remiss to not again thank all of those companies who pledged their support earlier this year for Bonanza Day!
This event has always been successful because of our members support.   (please see sponsor list below).

On another note, our T-shirts are being printed and we will notify all who placed an order when they will be available.
We were blessed to receive over 275 orders!

We are trying to reschedule the golf tournament portion of Bonanza Day for mid October, PENDING COVID19, of course.      More details will be coming out soon.
I hope you will plan to participate if we can pull it together.

I Hope you have a fabulous “Bonanza Day” weekend and please save the date for Bonanza Day 53!  August 13-14, 2021!

But thinking positively – it will be just as beautiful for  Bonanza Day 53!

We are saddened to report that after thoughtful consideration, AGC has decided to CANCEL  this year’s Bonanza Day Event.
With the Governor’s continuation of the  proclamation declaring a state of public health emergency based on COVID19 we feel it is prudent to not ask our members to be put in the position of attending what has proved in the past to be a “VERY large gathering” in an effort to protect our members. 

There is a possibility we could reschedule the golf portion of this event for a date in mid-October, however, we will have to play this by ear and will
let you know when that decision is made.

Special Appreciation is extended to those companies who had already agreed to participate and serve as SPONSORS!
We are grateful for your support for this event and AGC.  If you have already remitted your sponsorship money,  it will be returned to you. 

Again, thank you for your understanding and  support.

We look forward to hosting our 53rd Annual Bonanza Day
Golf Tournament and Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo on
August 13-14, 2021Please put these dates on your calendar.
