The JACL has held golf tournaments off and on over the years in conjunction with its National Conventions. Although it is generally difficult for delegates to participate because of meetings, the golf tournaments have been an enjoyable prelude to the beginning of the convention when the “real” business of the JACL is handled. The 2019 Convention will feature a golf tournament that will take place on July 31 at Stonebridge Golf Club, located in West Valley City, minutes from downtown Salt Lake City. This is a 27-hole championship golf course designed by Johnny Miller.
All golfers are invited to participate. Working on providing a fun outing for JACLers are Dean Hirabayashi, president/CEO of the National JACL Credit Union; Lisa Ikegami Imamura, a former Utah Women’s Amateur Champion who now works for the Utah Golf Assn.; and Floyd Mori, past JACL National President/National Executive Director and convention co-chair.
Conventiongoers who enjoy golfing are encouraged to sign up for the golf tournament. It is sure to be filled with fun as well as a great opportunity to enjoy good companionship while being surrounded by the beauty of the Salt Lake Valley. The registration form for the golf tournament will be available along with other convention materials at www.jacl.org.
ALL are welcome to come and join JACL at the 2019 National JACL Convention. Boosters are encouraged to plan a vacation to join in the activities of the convention, which is sure to be an enjoyable learning and experience for everyone who participates!
