Registration Now Open for FBMA’s Spring Texas Hold’em Poker and Golf Tournaments

You’re spending a lot of time working in your business, now take some time to work on your business: learn, relax, have fun. One way to do this is to participate in FBMA’s Spring Texas Hold’em Poker and Golf Tournaments.

The tournaments take place at the beautiful Mission Inn in Howey-in-the-Hills, a verdant oasis steeped in history. The early settlers of Howey-in-the-Hills found wondrous natural beauty in the shade and shadows of mature oaks, pines and palms. Founded by William John Howey, the town was incorporated in 1925. Before then, in 1921, Mr. Howey built Florida’s first citrus juice plant in the rolling hills which would soon bear his name.

Mission In honors these founders with their dedication as you play through the wide-open fairways and gentle rolling hills of the Las Colinas Course. You revere it in the sparkle of the Florida sun on ever-present ponds and creeks and in the sight of an osprey soaring overhead.

The event will begin on Thursday, May 18 at 5:00 p.m. with a cash reception followed by a buffet dinner at 6:00 p.m. and the ever popular Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament at 7:00 p.m. The total cost to participate, including dinner and your tournament “buy in” is $59. Don't play poker? Join us for the reception and dinner for $45 and stay to see who Lady Luck smiles on.

Too tired to drive home? Stay at Mission Hills Inn for only $135 Single/Double occupancy. Call 352.324.3101 to make your reservation. Remember to identify yourself with FBMA.

Golf registration begins the next day, Friday, May 19 at 8:00 a.m. with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. The golf fee and awards luncheon is only $89. We hope you will take advantage of these networking opportunities by bringing your employee, your customers or your colleagues.
