IRON RIVER—The Recreation Association of Iron County has announced plans for its third annual golf scramble fundraiser on Friday, July 20, in conjunction with Iron River Country Club.
RAIC officials report there will be a new format this year—an all-school challenge, where teams will collect points for the school they attended. A trophy will be awarded to the winning school.
A pizza party open to all school alumni and golf participants will be held after the scramble. Players who did not attend local schools are also welcome to take part and compete for prizes.
Entries for the three-person tournament are available at Iron River Country Club or Thrivent Financial. They can also be obtained from Jim Cederna, Julie Melchiori or Dennis Margoni. Margoni can be contacted at 906-265-2348, email firstname.lastname@example.org or mail P.O. Box 127, Iron River, MI 49935.
The entry fee is $210 per team and includes golf, cart and lunch—the entry deadline is Monday, July 16. Every team will receive a prize for taking part, and special prizes will be awarded for the first place and second place teams. A random draw will be held for a third prize, and any participating team may win that one.
Register as a team or an individual—RAIC will fund a team for you.
RAIC is a not-for-profit organization formed to bring low-cost athletic activities year-round to Iron County residents of all ages. Its first project was to build portable bocce courts at the Windsor Center, with help from Connor Sports Flooring of Amasa.
Future projects include developing an indoor walking track, golf, baseball and softball hitting cages; and soccer, tennis and volleyball courts. RAIC is presently preparing a proposal to obtain funding for an indoor athletic facility in Iron County.
