The 7th annual John Bapst Hockey Boosters Golf Tournament tees off on Saturday, August 18 at Rocky Knoll Country Club in Orrington. Registration is at 12 noon with a 1 p.m. shotgun start.

The golf tournament is the Booster’s biggest fundraiser of the year. The hockey program will have full varsity and JV teams this year and anticipate a very competitive season. Community participation goes a long way in supporting the teams this season and beyond. It is traditionally a fun day with hockey, golf and community supporters competing on the greens for valuable prizes and in some crazy contests, too!

There are prizes for the top three teams, closest to the pin, longest drive and chipping contests. Golfers will also be able to have a local celebrity golfer can take a drive for them, test their skill with a hockey stick on the putting green and try to drive a golf ball into a hockey net! This year also features the new Alfond Skybox Raffle! You could win an entire skybox for a UMaine Hockey Game during the 2012-2013 season! Only 100 tickets will be sold and the drawing will be held when all tickets are sold.

Community support can be given in three ways: participation as a golfer, tee sponsorships, or product/merchandise donations.

If your company wishes to put together a team and sponsor a hole, the Boosters make it easy. One $400 check can be written to cover 4 golfers, hole sponsorship, golf carts, meals, PLUS mulligans and string!

To enter just a team, the $300 level includes 4 players, golf carts, meals, mulligans and string!

Single tee sponsorships are also available for $125 each.
