Special points to remember

  • Presentation of prizes will take place after dinner. Prizes will be awarded only to those who qualify and remain for the evening’s activities. Contributions to the prize table are needed and welcomed. A healthy prize table is usually the result of a full community effort.
  • The tournament will be a scramble format. The winning team will be the best scramble team. Players may play their own ball, however, there will be no additional prizes for the winning male and female. Please try to put in teams from your department.
  • Participants must obtain approval from their department head to treat the time off as a vacation day or to work comparable overtime.
