They’re billing it as the “3rd Annual UWGB Convocation Open” to be held on the afternoon of Thursday, August 28, at the Shorewood Golf Course. The format for this social outing will be a three-or four-person scramble. Golfers (duffers, sandbaggers) of all abilities are encouraged to participate and meet others from the UW-Green Bay community in a less formal setting. The event is open to faculty, staff and retirees, with teams selected by the Planning Committee that consists of Kelly Franz, John Katers and Joe Schoenebeck.
Tee times start at 1 p.m., so if you can afford to take vacation for the afternoon and the very reasonable $10 greens fee ($15 if riding), they would love to hear from you. Please contact Joe Schoenebeck by noon August 22, the preceding Friday, to reserve your spot. What group will dethrone last year’s championship team of Tom Barry, Karen Opolka, and Patrick Forsythe? Chancellor Miller is tentatively scheduled to hit the ceremonial first ball to open the day’s activities. Non-golfers are also welcome to stop by Shorewood for refreshments and casual conversation later in the afternoon.
