GOLDEN EAGLES CONVENTION and GOLF
The Golden Eagles have a yearly three day convention, "normally" held in September or October. Each convention has a hosted hospitality and reception suite which is normally available for visiting and compliments the other scheduled activities. The annual Business Meeting is held on the third day of the convention (before the banquet) and all members are encouraged to attend. The highlight of the convention is the dinner on the evening of the third day where we usually have a guest speaker or entertainer. A one or two day golf tournament is held during the convention.
