MSU hosts eighth annual golf tour in area communities
Minot State University alumni and friends are invited to participate in the eighth annual "Friend-Raising Golf Tour." The summer tour will stop in six cities:
Velva on June 4, Rugby on June 13, Stanley on June 18, Bottineau on July 2, Garrison on July 16 and Kenmare on Aug. 1. MSU will recognize area students receiving 2013-14 scholarships at each event. These dates are subject to change.
Velva has been rescheduled for July 30 due to rain.
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.
"These friend-raising golf tours are one of our favorite events." said Janna McKechnie, director of alumni relations and annual giving. "Each community is so wonderful to work with, and we are looking 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 early reservations because of limited availability.
New this year, a drawing for two $1,000 scholarships will be conducted Aug. 1 at Kenmare. 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.
