Additional information and/or opportunities to support the family are forthcoming.

    Message from our Kilgour Sports Boosters (KSB):

    Golfers and Hackers alike,

    As many of you know the 12th Annual KSB Golf Outing Sponsored by Bronzie Design and Build is quickly approaching on Saturday, August 27th. Changes to the year's 5th Major include the tournament being moved to California Golf Course, a 4-Some Hole Sponsorship Option which means that your company can sponsor a hole while you get to bring your own 4some, and a move to the Kraus estate for the After Party/Dinner Awards Banquet since the Baur Clubhouse is under renovation for the summer and fall. Even though we now have a 4some option, we will still have the Open Format with golfers flighted by ability split onto different 4somes while competing for the prestigious Golden Mustang Trophy.

    I am happy to report that after some initial struggles with registration on Blue Sombrero the bugs have been worked out.  Just use the following 


    to get to the KSB site. You will need to either login or register yourself (have to be over 21 for this program to show as available to you.) If you still have a problem feel free to use snail mail and the registration form attached to send me your registration and check.  If your significant other is not playing but wants to join us for some Mazunte Mexican Fiesta/Awards Dinner then please make sure to register them for the dinner portion.

    With this update I would also like to thank the following sponsors:

    Presenting Sponsor - Bronzie Design and Build

    Drink Cart Sponsors - Archer Plumbing/ L.M. Kohn

    Golf Cart Sponsor - Lisa Crawford with Sibcy Cline
