On Saturday June, 17th WildcatInsider.com, along with the brand new Wildcat Sports Report Magazine (internet pre-orders available soon, newsstand in August), will be hosting the First Annual ‘Golf with The Staff' at the Del Lago Golf Club outside Tucson.
So far we have gotten confirmations from four coaches for their participation in the event. Offensive Coordinator Mike Canales, Wide Receivers coach Charlie Williams, Linebackers coach Tim Kish and Running Backs coach Kasey Dunn have all graciously agreed to play golf with some of the most rabid Wildcat football fans that also happen to play a little golf.
Golfing with the coaches is not the only part of this event. After all of the foursomes have returned from the course there will also be a sit down lunch with the coaches. Hamburgers, hot dogs, water and iced tea will be served to those in attendance. You will get your chance to sit down, in a similar manner as the other events, and pick the brains of the Wildcat coaches and talk about the Cats and the upcoming season.
Unlike the other great events, there will be some cost to participate in the ‘Golf with the Staff' event. But, like the other events, being a premium member of WildcatInsider.com has its advantages. All Premium members that choose to attend this event can do so at simple cost. The cost for this event is $40 US for Premium members (30 for the golf, 10 for the food) and the cost for non-premium users will be $55, all included.
Included in the pricing is a round of golf, the food and mingling afterwards and two golf carts for each foursome on the course. Feel free to bring items for the coaches to autograph during the lunch portion of the day.
Each coach will be placed with three people since you cannot play with more than four in a group on the course. The organizers of the event will place members with the coaches and special consideration will be given to Premium members to be placed with a coach. However there is a way for all participants to guarantee themselves a spot with one of the coaches. You can send an email to email@example.com and bid to pay a higher price to guarantee yourself a spot with a coach. It will be a basic auction type system and it will end on June 13th so we can set the groups prior to the event.
To participate in the event you can easily use the PayPal system. Just go to PayPal.com and register for your FREE Account. After you have registered you can use choose your way to send money to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org . The name on the account will be the name added to the participation roster and will be checked to see if the name is a Premium Member. If you are paying for more than one participant please send an email to the Wildcat Insider address to let us know, as is the case with at least one user already.
It is possible, if you do not wish to golf or if you do not golf, to attend the lunch portion of the day. The lunch portion will cost $15 and will begin around 1 PM Arizona time on that day. It is impossible to give a specific time due to the golfers playing at their own rate.
