Mid-Con Golf Tournament
Date:  Fri, May 29, 2020

Save the date and plan to join us for the 16th Annual AADE Mid-Continent Golf Tournament at Buffalo Rock! Details to follow!
The American Association of Drilling Engineers was founded in New Orleans in 1978. Formation of the AADE was based on the fact that no existing organization was consistently providing technical exchange specifically for Drilling Engineers. The AADE is an all-volunteer organization of independent chapters licensed by the National Board.

In awarding the Nate Fleming and Paul E. Legg Memorial Scholarships, we seek to help men and women of ability and character within the American Association of Drilling Engineers to aid and extend their education. This enables them to meet the career demands of today’s job market and entrepreneurial arena.

Applications must be mailed and received by May 1, 2020 . Applications received after that date will not be considered.
Scholarships will be awarded at the July 2020 meeting.

A Special "Thank you" to our sponsors for the 2020 AADE Symposium & Exhibition!
Mark your calendars! Upcoming AADE events:
05/29 - AADE MidCon Golf Tournament
