Snoball Open In Review

This year was a huge success. We had 380 golfers and over 500 people attending the event. We would like to thank all of you who came and enjoyed our annual Snowball Open event. All the money raised will go back to the community in many forms to benefit the needy. Special thanks to all the sponsors who donated prizes, gift certificates, and the sponsors who worked a hole. Without you the attendee’s would not have had so much fun. Thanks again! A big thank you to the City of Long Lake and Orono Public Works who helped out with the Christmas trees and snow plowing. Also, the Cub Scouts Pack 206 did a great job helping as the cleanup crew. We would like to personally thank all who volunteered their time to set up and break down the tents, holes, and all the equipment. Please join us for the next Snowball Open on Saturday, Jan. 25 2014 (10AM to 4PM). We look forward to seeing you and your whole family for this 27th annual event.
