Vandal-Bronco Golf Challenge This Weekend!

Forget helmets and shoulder pads! These warriors are armed with Big Berthas and FootJoy spikes. Its time again for the Vandal-Bronco Golf Challenge in beautiful New Meadows at the Meadow Creek Golf Resort. Call now to book a tee time (if still available), or plan on simply going to see old friends. Its traditionally one of the best attended fund raisers of the year, and a good time for all.

UI-BSU Golf Challenge

The 2002 UI-BSU Golf Challenge will be held on June 14th and 15th in New Meadows, Idaho. This will be the 15th annual match, which continues to be a major fund raising activity for both universities.

The course this year will be the Meadow Creek Golf Resort, just 13 Miles from McCall. As some of you may know, Golf Professional Carl Hoss and his staff have moved to this facility. Carl has been incredibly helpful and a huge supporter of this tournament. As a result both programs have decided to stay with Carl. The New Meadows Resort has also been very generous and the programs will raise more money as a result.

The roster of participants will be 66 men and 12 women on each team. The tournament format will be the same as in the past. The days and time have changed somewhat, but should be very accommodating to travel and weather.

Friday, June 14th will be a 3-person scramble, with a shotgun start at 1:00 p.m.

Saturday, June 15th will be an individual match and a 2-person team match with a shotgun start at 1 p.m.

Call New Meadows at 1-800-347-2555 for a practice round.
The entry fee for this year will be $125 per person. This fee includes green fees, BBQ dinner after the tournament is completed, and an Adidas golf shirt.

Nelson's Car Dealership in Moscow is sponsoring a Hole-In-One contest on Saturday. A 2002 Buick Century will be the hole prize on a selected par three, and the other par threes will have prizes such as:

1) GMAC Smart Care plan and 3 Nike wedges.
2) 4-day 3-night golf vacation at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida.
3) 4-day 3-night golf vacation at the Palm Coast Resort in Florida.
Special thanks to Tripp Nelson and Elmer Hanson of Nelson's Chevrolet-Oldsmobile-Pontiac-Buick.

Each Participant must have an established and verifiable handicap. Pairings will be assigned by handicaps at the direction of the team captains.

There will be a Vandal get-together at the home of Alan and Sue Atwood. Alan and Sue have graciously offered their home for a mid-game get together on Friday at 7 p.m.. All Vandals are cordially invited. Thanks Alan and Sue!
