Almquist & Weinbrenner
Win the 2016

MPSTMA Golf Tourney at UM Les Bolstad GC

.
Ian Almquist, Minnesota Twins Grounds Staff, (pictured on left) and Roger Weinbrenner CSFM, University of St. Thomas, partnered to shoot par 71 at the University of Minnesota Les Bolstad Golf Course in Falcon Heights to capture the 1st Annual MPSTMA Golf Tournament. The Almquist/Weinbrenner pairing birdied the 18th hole to tie Jacob Button, University of Minnesota, and Jeff Turtinen, MTGF/MPSTMA, but were deemed champions in a scorecard playoff. A post-tournament gathering took place at nearby Station 280.

The MPSTMA Golf Tournament came about when this year's Chapter Clash was postponed. Iowa could get enough players to field a team and travel to Minnesota due to many mid-summer tournaments and other conflicts.

The players had such a good time, that afterwards, it was decided that this will become an annual event on the MPSTMA calendar.

Sign Me Up for the Chapter Clash!
This event includes young staff, seasonals, students,
anyone that works for the park, city or school.
