Adams Ski & Golf Day
Adams is the proud major sponsor of the annual Adams Ski & Golf fundraiser held in July at Mt Buller and the Mansfield Golf Course. The fundraising event first commenced in 1999 and includes around 20 teams with a total of 80 participants. The proceeds go directly towards local Mansfield schools ski and snowboard programs enabling many children to participate in snow sports for the very first time. The event has now raised over $335,000 which is an outstanding achievement by all involved.
The Calcutta dinner and auction is held on Thursday night at ABOM Moosehead Bar to help raise more money and get into the spirit of the event. A fun event which allows teams of 4 to enjoy the sporting attributes of skiing on Buller and playing golf in Mansfield whilst raising money for a worthy cause.
Ski & Snowboard Racing starts at 8.15am – Consistency rather than speed is the objective around the gates and teams are rewarded for having the smallest time differential between each rider’s two runs. Following the ski & snowboard leg, all teams make their way to Mansfield Golf Course for lunch followed by a midday tee-off for an 18-hole Ambrose competition.
After the round finishes, presentations occur at the clubhouse and a vast array of fantastic prizes are awarded to the 8 category winners, generously donated by the 38 secondary sponsors who also make this great event possible. It does not get much better – a ski in the morning and a hit of golf with friends in the afternoon and all for a great local cause.
