Warner Robins, GA- Col. Mitchel Butikofer and senior leaders from Robins Air Force Base united with community leaders from throughout the Robins Region to win it all in a very close match during the 2nd Annual Robins Cup Golf Tournament.

Sponsored by the Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee, State Bank & Trust Company and Lowe Toyota, the event’s purpose was for leaders to have a day of fun while appreciating and further enhancing the already great relationship between Robins Air Force Base and the local community.

The event matched Col. Mitchel Butikofer and 35 senior Robins AFB leaders with 36 community leaders who competed in an 18 hole, two person scramble, match play event.  Both Robins AFB and community leaders alike thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to network and strengthen ties during the event.  Major General Bob McMahon, USAF retired, led the Community Team.
