The following is from Jane Gill-Shaler, fundraising chair of the AEG Foundation:
AEG Foundation is hard at work on plans for our very first GOLF TOURNAMENT FUNDRAISER to take place on Monday, Sept. 11, during the AEG 2017 Annual Meeting in Colorado Springs. The planned site is the Kings Deer Golf Club in Monument Colorado, and our Tournament Chair, AEGF Director Bill Flanigan, is smoothing out the details. The golf course at King's Deer is a regulation 18-hole championship course, designed and built by Redstone Golf Group and opened in 1999. The course has great views of Pikes Peak and the Front Range, and it has four tees, designed to test the abilities of all skill levels.
Join us for our very first GOLF TOURNAMENT FUNDRAISER for the AEG Foundation! There will be opportunities for sponsors, participants and teams, and there will be surprises for those chapters that provide the most entrants and for the chapter whose entrants win the event.
All the money raised from this year's golf tournament fundraiser will go towards the GREATEST NEEDS FUND; this fund provides support to underfunded programs and funds within the AEG Foundation family of funds. You can read all about it on the AEG Foundation web page.
If you are not able to attend the AEG 2017 Annual Meeting or the AEGF Golf Fundraiser, please consider donating $50 or $1,000 or more to the AEG Foundation. You may donate online, or you may send a check, written out to the AEG Foundation, to:

The slogan "Made in the USA" resonates with Americans, except when there's too much of a given product being made, which forces down prices along with the industry. One example is natural gas, where U.S. inventories have been largely above average for the last two years.
Mined diamond production in 2017 is estimated to be 142.3 million carats worth $15.6 billion, which would be an 11.5 percent increase in carat volume produced over 2016 and an 9.9 percent increase in total value produced, Paul Zimnisky's Rough Diamond Index shows.
Deep-water drillers, fighting to stay alive in a world of $50 oil, are looking to science to do more than just cut costs, save time and boost oil production. They want to standardize technology.
