On Sunday, September 5, 2011 (yes, that is Labor Day Weekend), we will hold the El Zaribah Golf Marathon at the Augusta Ranch Golf Club in East Mesa, which will benefit the El Zaribah General Fund.
Now, playing 100 holes of golf in one day may sound grueling, and I will not deny that it is, but we do have a little twist to it as well. It will indeed be a long, tough day, but also a lot of fun and very rewarding.
Monday evening, May 10th 2010 we will have folks join us at El Zaribah to explain just how this event works and how as little as 40 participants can make such a difference to El Zaribah. Remember, this is a Marathon not a Tournament so your golf skills really do not come in to play (no pun intended), but your fortitude and willingness do.
I can tell you that each participant will have their own golf cart, so if you have never done this before, that statement alone might tell you how crazy this gets.
Our first order of business after the presentation on the 10th will be to elect 10 Team Captains, who will then be responsible for getting 3 more players on their team, male or female, Shriner or Non-Shriner. The participants simply need to be people who have a large Rola-Dex (long email address book from outside our Shrine family), would like to help our cause and want to have fun while doing it.
I look forward to seeing you at the presentation and would especially like to see all of The Young Guns there.
