Reminder: Convocation Open is Aug. 25

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 w/cart)? To register for the Convocation Open, contact Joe Schoenebeck schoenej@uwgb.edu by Friday, Aug. 19. Non-golfers are encouraged to stop after work for refreshments and conversation.

Another year, another Convocation Open… Aug. 25

It is billed as the “5th Annual UWGB Convocation Open” (some call it Divotfest) to be held the day after UWGB Convocation on Thursday, Aug. 25 at Shorewood Golf Course. The format is a three-or-four-person scramble that allows golfers of all abilities to participate and meet others in an informal setting. (Those entering this golf event for the express purpose of winning are missing the point of the event, organizers say). The Convocation Open is open to faculty, staff, and retirees, with teams being selected by the planning committee — Steve Meyer (chair) Joe Schoenebeck and John Katers. Chancellor Miller has 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 w/cart). Contact Joe Schoenebeck schoenej@uwgb.edu by Friday, Aug. 19 to reserve your spot in the outing. Non-golfers are encouraged to stop after work for refreshments and conversation.

50th Anniversary celebration continues with expanded Alumni Days

UW-Green Bay hosts its third annual Alumni Days on Oct. 16 and 17 with a bigger and better array of activities to coincide with the University’s 50th Anniversary celebration. Among the events on Friday’s opening evening is a resurrection of the BlueWhale Coffeehouse — at one time a premiere Midwest destination for blues performers — with a Shorewood Clubhouse concert by alumni favorite Claudia Schmidt. On Saturday, Phoenix Fest — a “mini-Bayfest” — will offer live music, food, beverages, and many attractions for the entire family including Segway tours of campus, carnival games, zip line, stunt jump, a chili bar, corn tent and beer garden. Green Bay Athletics teams will host Phoenix Phrenzy in a “midnight mania” type of atmosphere with player intros, dunk contest, a scrimmage and special appearance by the Chicago Boyz Acrobatic Team (featured on “America’s Got Talent”). Throw in Alumni Awards Night, a mainstage Theatre production, a Music concert with alumni choral participation, home soccer and volleyball, the return of the John Maino Golf Classic at Shorewood, Big Mouth, Pat McCurdy, vintage memorabilia displays and a 5K fun run, and it’s an action-packed weekend. See the news release, or the full schedule.
