2001 TMS Foundation Golf Classic

February 11–15 · 2001 TMS ANNUAL MEETING · New Orleans, Louisiana

2001 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
During the week of February 11–15, 2001, at the 130th Annual Meeting & Exhibition of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS), you can join more than 4,000 science and engineering professionals, representing more than 70 different countries, who will come together for the opportunity to add to their own store of knowledge by capitalizing on the expertise and experience of their colleagues. More than 200 sessions and 1,000 individual presentations are scheduled. Whether your technical interests lie in precious metal extraction, aluminum processing, high-temperature superconductors, or just about any other materials field or metallurgical discipline, you will find programming that addresses your most pressing needs.

The 2001 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition will take place in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel will be the headquarters hotel for the event. All conference events, including registration, technical sessions, and the exhibition will take place at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

Attendees of the 2001 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition are invited to participate in the Fourth Annual TMS Foundation Golf Classic at Eastover--The Golf Club of New Orleans. This annual fundraiser has become one of the most popular events at the conference and is held to benefit the TMS Foundation.

The Eastover course has been called by Golf Digest Places to Play, “the best course in New Orleans.” It’s only 15 minutes from downtown New Orleans and is a qualifying site for the PGA Tour, US Open, US Senior Open, US Amateur, and US Mid Amateur.

The Rabbit’s Foot course, which we will be playing for the TMS Foundation Golf Classic, is the shorter and tighter of the two, eighteen-hole courses Eastover has to offer. The 6,740-yard course is surrounded by splendid woodlands and native Louisiana bayous. Your skills will be tested on the 545-yard, 16th hole, with its challenging dogleg right and tight finish. No wonder this hole has been rated “the best par 5 in New Orleans.”

Tournament play will be a scramble format with teams of foursomes. We will get under way with a shotgun start at 7:30 a.m. There will be prizes for Longest Drive, both men’s and ladies’, and Closest-to-the-Pin contests, as well as a random drawing for door prizes. A Hole-in-One Contest with a grand prize of an automobile is also planned.
