September 30, 2012 - The Second Annual Full Steam Ahead Golf Tournament hosted by the North Georgia Live Steamers was a rousing success.  Forty golfers vied for the right to claim the coveted first place plaques and prizes. The weather was perfect and Cherokee Run Golf course was in excellent shape.  No one was able to conquer the Hole in One sponsored by Premier Building Systems.  An outstanding barbecue lunch prepared and served by the Cherokee Run staff preceded the awards ceremony and give away prizes. The winning team representing the City of Conyers consisting of David Spann, Brad Sutton, Mike Leathers and Tony Lucas won with a score of -15.  The second place team representing Mechanical Services finished at -13.  The team from Premier Building Systems walked away with both the long drive and closest to the pin prizes.  Twenty plus other prizes were awarded and all who attended had a great time.  Look for the Third Annual Full Steam Ahead Golf Tournament the last week of September, 2013.  More information will follow as the date and time is finalized.
