Flying V Award Recipients


When geese fly south for the winter, they do so in a V pattern.  The concept allows the goose at the front of the V to cut through the wind resistance making it easier for rest of the V to fly.  When this goose grows tired, they fall to the back of the flock where it's easiest.  In essence, the head goose takes on the biggest challenge for the betterment of the whole, this is why we've coined the name

"Flying V Award" to thank the member of our flock that takes on big challenges for us selflessly to make the Big Goose Open so successful each year.  To each and every one of them, I am truly grateful, it is because of their effort we are able to Tee Off on Kidney Cancer
