The fourth annual Red Fez Invitational is open to all Shriners

My Fellow Brothers,

Please accept my invitation to join us for our 4th Annual Red Fez Invitational Golf Tournament pitting Shrine Temples, Shrine Clubs and Masonic Lodges against each other for the competition.  This event was originally begun to simply promote further camaraderie amongst Shrine Temples, Shrine Clubs, Masonic Lodges and invite all to enjoy the weather of the Great Southwest here in Phoenix.  Competition is for “Braggin’ Rights” to  the coveted “Red Fez Traveling Trophy”.  Winners of the trophy will display it at their Temple, Shrine Club or Lodge, until the following Spring and each player shall also receive an individual trophy.

The 2011 Red Fez Invitational will be played at the Orange Tree Golf Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona on Friday, May 13th at 1:00 PM.   We certainly hope to see former Red Fez Invitational Champions back such as 2008 winners, Khiva Shriners from Amarillo, Texas;  2009 Champions, Naja Shriners from Deadwood, South Dakota and the current Defending Champions, El Zaribah Shriners, Phoenix, Arizona.  Your team must be comprised of members of your fraternal organization to be eligible for the trophy.  If you cannot conjure up four players, don’t let that stop you from joining the fun.  We’ll pair you with someone.

A mere $125.00 per player covers golf, cart, range balls, dinner and a tournament shirt at one of the best golf courses in the Valley of the Sun.  Enter your team on line now at www.RedFezInvitational.com  Download and print the entry form off the web site and mail your check with the entry form to us at El Zaribah. 

The fourth annual Red Fez Invitational is open to all Shrine Temples, Shrine Clubs and Lodges from all over the country.   A Shrine Temple, Shrine Club or Masonic Lodge may enter as many teams as they wish.  Tournament format is a 4 person scramble and again, if you want to play but do not have a team, no problem. 

The winning team will have its name engraved on the traveling trophy that will be sent to their Temple, Shrine Club or Lodge for display after the tournament.  Each member (4) of that winning team shall also receive an individual trophy for themselves.  The traveling trophy shall be returned to El Zaribah each year during the month of March.

FURTHER, your entry includes our famous “Bash After The Clash” on Saturday evening for each player and a guest, held at El Zaribah Shrine Temple.   There will also be food and beverage samplings provided by local restaurants and beverage vendors.  Live and Silent auctions as well as raffle prizes including stays at Marriott Hotels in Hawaii and Australia.

The Orange Tree Golf Resort, an all-suite resort, has given us a rate beginning Thursday, May 12, 2011 thru Sunday, May 14, 2011.  This is truly a great rate for this resort.  Make your reservation at (480) 948-6100 and ask for the “Shriners Rate”.  Check out the resort at this web site:  http://www.shellhospitality.com/hotels/orange_resort/index.html

We sincerely hope you will be a part of our fourth annual Red Fez Invitational and will come and share in the fun.  Get your entry forms in early as this event has sold out nearly every year and please feel free to contact me for further information.
