We’re once again proud to be a sponsor and participant at the SWARS Annual Meeting Golf Event.  Proceeds from the event go to the George J. Elking, Jr. Scholarship Fund.

Elking served as president of the Southwest Association of Rail Shippers (SWARS) in 1995 and the North American Association of Rail Shippers (NARS) in 1998.

The March 4, 2020 annual meeting golf event will feature 36 holes at two courses:

  • Moody Gardens Golf Course, 1700 Sydnor Lane, Galveston, Texas
  • Galveston Country Club, 14228 Stewart Road, Galveston

Twice a year SWARS hosts a golfing event to raise money for a worthy cause.  Events are always held in conjunction with the SWARS annual meeting and conference.  This year’s conference theme is “2020 Precision Vision.”

We encourage anyone involved in the rail industry to attend the annual meeting and meet old friends, make new contacts and have a great time playing golf.
