Rocket Cup Golf Outing and Summer Hockey

Posted by Coach on April 24, 2014

Rocket Cup

See the attached form for the sponsor and team registration information.  Please be active and early with recruiting teams and sponsors, this event is a huge part of our fund-raising and we can do even more then we have.  Alumni can participate in selling hole sponsors along with current families.  All players will have a golf outing participation surcharge on next seasons fee of $100 but you can have that fee waived by providing 2 hole sponsors or (1) Green and White Club Sponsor.  We also need to collect raffle prizes and auction items.  Anyone wishing to serve in a more formal role to assist in coordinating  our group efforts should let Coach Eric Sikkenga know as soon as possible so we can be ahead of the frenzy as May rolls around.
