WB Class of 1971 “Senior Skip Year” reunion 9 hole golf outing.
Friday, May 13th, 3:00 PM at Manitou Ridge Golf Course, 3200 N. McKnight Rd at 694. Www.manitouridge.com. Our classmate and former WB Golf Team member Steve Dornfeld is the PGA Pro at MR.
Players of all skill levels are welcome to come and participate in this fun event. Scramble format. Ten tee times are available for a maximum of forty people. Cost will be the senior rate of $28.50 which includes a cart.
Prizes will be given for closest to the pin, longest putt etc.
19th hole awards and social will be held at the golf course following play, starting at approximately 5:30 PM.
To register contact former 1971 Minnesota State Tournament Champion WB Golf Team member Rick Tentis at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions he can be reached at 701-226-2430.
Plan to arrive early so that you can pay your green fees in the pro shop, meet and greet your classmates, get your assigned pairings, and hit some practice balls before hitting the links.
There will be no organized event on the evening of Friday May 13th. However, taking a walk-through town will likely find you face to face with other classmates doing the same. Or you could organize a group of friends to meet up during the evening. It will be casual and fun, the more the merrier. For those of us still living in White Bear, the 617 is a logical meeting spot, but also Manitou Grill, Rudys, Washington Square, the VFW, The Legion, and The Brickhouse. Also a great way to support and give back to the White Bear Lake Community.
