Last Call For Dick's Golf

There are 32 players registered for the Second Annual Runaway Open, a charity golf tournament for Phish fans on Saturday September 2nd, the day of the second Dick's show. That's nearly twice as many players as we had in the first event, last fall, so we've successfully increased the cap this time to 60!

Runaway Open logo We're unlikely to get that many, which means there's still plenty of space for anyone interested in swinging sticks with fellow fans for the benefit of music education - but we need a final count in about 24 hours, so register pronto and please share this widely!

To register, make a contribution of $125 or more per player (to via PayPal, or to via Dwolla). This donation covers:

  • 18-hole green fees, range balls, golf carts, and $15 in golf shop merchandise credit,
  • a small goody bag of gifts and thank yous from the Mockingbird Foundation, including a few limited edition event items available only to participants,
  • a boxed lunch (choice of Italian trio, chicken salad, or shaved buffalo sandwich, served with Boulder Chips, fresh fruit, granola bar & fresh baked cookie),
  • two drink tickets (soda, tea, Gatorade, beer, wine, or rail spirits) and a 24-oz bottle of water in your cart, plus
  • a nominal residual donation to the Foundation, though the more players we have, the more we raise for grants!

The event will take place at Buffalo Run Golf Course - in a nook between E 470, 76, and the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. Chosen for its proximity, ratings, and availability, and opened in 1996, Buffalo Run is a nationally recognized and award-winning, 18-hole championship course with lush rolling greens, expansive fairways, and picturesque views of the Rocky Mountains. We look forward to seeing you there!

kidrob Looks like a great event being put together. Too bad i won't be in Colorado. I would love to do this, and I've been playing pretty good recently.
