Submitted by Patrick J. Lee
The University of Alaska Fairbanks Department of Athletics will host the 24th Annual IBEW Nanook Fund Golf Scramble on June 20 at the North Star Golf Club.
IBEW is in its fifth year as the title sponsor for the tournament, which is the major fundraising event for student-athlete scholarships. Proceeds from the tournament will directly benefit the Alaska Nanooks.
On the day of the tournament, breakfast and registration begins at 7 a.m., followed by a captain's meeting at 8 a.m. and a shotgun start at 8:15 a.m. Each golfer will receive a catered lunch, and on-course beverage carts and hospitality tents will be available throughout the tournament.
All participants will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for a chance to win an Anchorage weekend getaway package, which includes two round-trip tickets to Anchorage, courtesy of Frontier Flying Service, two nights stay in an area hotel, and two passes to an Alaska Nanooks event while in Anchorage. In addition, each golfer will receive a coupon redeemable for a free, lightweight, collapsible Sunday golf bag (excluding shipping and handling), courtesy of Magique Golf.
Every entrant will receive a tournament gift, goodie bag and an opportunity to win team prizes. Other prizes will be awarded for specialty holes throughout the course, such as closest to the pin and longest drive contests for men and women.
The tournament's hole-in-one prizes include a new vehicle valued at over $30,000, $10,000 in cash, a Hawaiian vacation package for two and a set of Ben Hogan BH-5 irons.
Teams of four can register to participate in the tournament for $600 or individuals can sign up for $160. Individuals and partial teams will be paired by the tournament staff to create complete teams of four. Hole sponsorships are available for $100 per hole.
Entry forms and further information are available online at www.alaskananooks.com or by calling tournament director Ruth Olsen at 907-474-6814. The entry deadline is June 18.
