There was a list of six rules handed out to participants of the North Dakota Rural Electric Political Action Committee‘s (REPAC) golf scramble. Atop that list: “HAVE FUN!!”

Dozens of participants did just that at the annual event held July 1 at Prairie West Golf Course in Mandan, ND.

The best-ball 18-hole scramble began with a shotgun start at noon, and along the way included games such as closest to the pin, longest putt and longest drive for both men and women. All participants came away with a prize, courtesy of event sponsors, while members of the top three teams earned additional prizes. The team made up of Kent Klima, Bob Johnson, Troy Schilling and Ralph Greer place first.

What is REPAC?

REPAC is the political arm of the North Dakota Association of Rural Electric Cooperatives (NDAREC) and its member cooperatives. The purpose of the organization is to provide financial support to statewide and legislative candidates who are identified as friends of the rural electric program.

REPAC includes employees, managers, directors, and patrons of NDAREC and its member G&T and distribution cooperatives.

“There is great value in REPAC’s mission of contributing to statewide and legislative candidates who best support Basin Electric’s goal of supplying reliable and affordable power,” says Chad Reisenauer, Basin Electric manager of member support and services. “This golf scramble is a great way to raise money for REPAC while enjoying a day of golf and socializing with other members of the cooperative family.”
