Sunday Optional Activities

Golf Scramble at the Donald Ross Course at French Lick

Sunday, September 15 - Shotgun Start 11:00 AM

Test your game on the beautiful Donald Ross Course at French Lick. Each golfer will receive a box lunch, and beverages will be available throughout the day. Awards will be presented during lunch on Monday. See you on the fairways!

Historic Tour of West Baden

Sunday, September 15 - 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Step back in time and be captivated by the architecture and history of the French Lick and West Baden Springs hotels. Hear how the area was once the prime vacation spot for wealthy health-seekers and high rollers at the turn of the 20th century. Learn about and gain a deeper appreciation for the multimillion-dollar renovation recently completed at both hotels.

Indiana Landmarks will lead this tour, highlighting West Baden’s fascinating history, stately architecture and gardens, and award-winning restorations.

Chairman's Banquet

This year’s convention will once again feature the Chairman’s Banquet on Sunday night. The evening will begin with a cocktail reception, followed by an elegant, black-tie-optional dinner and recognition of our past presidents and members of the IBA 40 Year Club.

Dinner will be followed by “The Stetson Experience.” Mind reading has never been this much fun, as performer Jon Stetson injects uproarious comedy into his performance for side-splitting hilarity.

Jon Stetson is a fourth-generation mentalist who grew up hearing stories about his grandfather’s uncle, a man named Alexander who traveled across the country performing as a magician, crystal gazer and mind reader. Join us for a show that will be amazing, motivational, inspirational … and hilarious to boot.

 

The grand prize drawing, a perennial showstopper, will take place at the conclusion of the Closing Banquet. You must be present to win!

 

 

Future Leadership Division Silent Auction and Dinner

The Future Leadership Division’s annual silent auction is the place to be on Monday evening. You will have the opportunity to bid on treasures such as sporting event tickets, golf items, decorative pieces, sports memorabilia and specialty items. All funds raised will benefit Indiana BANKPAC. Don’t miss this chance for quality shopping while supporting the PAC that supports Indiana banking.

Euchre Tournament

If words like “trumps, bowers, tricks and going alone” are in your vocabulary, this is the event for you. Join us on the mezzanine level of the hotel on Monday night for some late-night diversion at the annual IBA euchre tournament. We’ll be playing a progressive tournament with multiple changes in partners, and with each player scoring individually. There will be fabulous prizes for the winners and guaranteed fun for all.
