Another year, another Convocation Open… this year’s is Aug. 27

They’re billing it as the “4th Annual UWGB Convocation Open” (some call it Divotfest) to be held the day after convocation on Thursday, Aug. 27 at the Shorewood Golf Course, and it is fun. The format for this social outing is a three-or-four person scramble that allows golfers of all abilities to participate and meet others in an informal setting. The event is open to faculty, staff, and retirees, with the teams being selected by the Planning Committee, chaired by Steve Meyer along with Joe Schoenebeck and John Katers. Chancellor Miller has once again been invited to hit the ceremonial first ball at 1 p.m., with tee times to follow. (If the Chancellor is unavailable, organizers are trying to get Brett Favre, who seems to be everywhere around Green Bay, these days.) Anyway, what better way to prepare for the upcoming semester by taking a half day of vacation and commiserating with others while enjoying a round of golf for $10 ($15 if taking a cart)? Please contact Joe Schoenebeck by Friday, Aug. 21, to reserve your spot in the outing. Non-golfers are encouraged to stop by later in the afternoon for refreshments and conversation.
