MSU hosts seventh annual golf tour in area communities
Minot State University alumni and friends are invited to participate in the seventh annual "Friend-Raising Golf Tour." The summer tour will stop in six cities: Velva on June 5, Rugby on June 14, Stanley on June 19, Bottineau on July 3, Garrison on July 17 and Kenmare on Aug. 2. MSU will recognize area students receiving 2012-13 scholarships at each event. These dates are subject to change.
The motto for the tour is "Golf One or Golf Them All." The format for each tour stop will be a four-person, 9-hole scramble. Registration will begin at 4:30 p.m., with a shotgun start at 5 p.m. A social will immediately follow completion of golf. Non-golfers are welcome to attend.
"We have great relationships with alumni and friends of MSU in every community where we golf," said Janna McKechnie, director of alumni relations and annual giving. "Each community is so hospitable, and we look forward to another great golf tour!"
Golfers are responsible for their own green fees and cart rentals. Meals and refreshments will be provided by the course, and purchase is optional.
Transportation from Minot State to each course will be available at no charge. Reservations for transportation and meals are requested one week before the date of each outing. It is recommended that golfers interested in carts make reservations as soon as possible because the number of carts available is limited.
Prizes and T-shirts will be awarded at each event. The "Friend-Raising Golf Tour" is sponsored by MSU Alumni Association, Advancement Office, Athletic Department and the Marketing Office. Call the MSU Advancement Office with questions or to register at 858-3234 or 701-800-777-0750, ext. 3234, or visit the website, www.minotstateu.edu/alumni.
