If youâ€™re an Aggie, are friends with an Aggie or donâ€™t mind helping an Aggie, the Howard County A&M Club needs your help.
For the 13th consecutive year, the club will hold its WesTexAgs Shootout to raise scholarship money to support area public school students attending Texas A&M University.
Anyone, regardless of whether theyâ€™re an Aggie, is welcome to attend.
Two major events, both held at Big Spring Country Club, will highlight this yearâ€™s Shootout, which will be held Saturday, July 14:
â€˘ A four-person scramble golf tournament will tee off at 1 p.m. Entry fee is $100 per person and includes cart and green fees. In addition, the A&M club is seeking $500 sponsorships for teams and holes.
Golfers will be allowed one mulligan (for $10) and awards will be presented for the longest drive and closest to the pin contests. Prizes will be country club pro shop credits.
The action shifts inside at 6 p.m., when the A&M club holds its annual Aggie Live Auction.
Items such as memorabilia and vacation trips will be auctioned off. Items include:
â€˘ John David Crow Texas A&M statistics jersey.
