Convocation Open (or Divotfest) is back!

The “Sixth Annual UWGB Convocation Open” (some call it Divotfest) will be held on Thursday, Aug. 24 at Shorewood Golf Course. 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.  HINT: If you are entering this golf event for the express purpose of winning, you are missing the point. 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. What better way to prepare for the upcoming semester by taking a half day of vacation and cavorting with others while enjoying a round of golf for $10 ($15 if taking a cart)? Please contact Joe Schoenebeck by Friday, Aug. 18, to reserve your spot in the outing. Non-golfers are encouraged to stop after work for refreshments and conversation.
