Golf scramble set for Saturday

June 7, 2007

Baldwin Junior High School assistant principal Joe Gresnick is once again hosting a nine-hole golf scramble to raise money for uniforms.

At 9 a.m. Saturday, the event will begin at the Baldwin City Municipal Golf Course. The money raised from entry fees and donations will be used to help pay for boys' and girls' basketball uniforms.

The tournament is a two-man scramble with an entry fee of $25 per person. If someone doesn't have a partner, one will be assigned that day.

"We are hoping to have a pretty good group this year," Gresnick said. "We usually have 14 or 16 players, but we're hoping for a few more this year. Of course, that will depend on the weather."

The event will again offer some of the same special features and prizes as it has in previous years, but with one major addition.

There will be an auction for a basketball autographed by University of Kansas men's basketball coach Bill Self. The bidding for the ball will end at the conclusion of the golf tournament. Anyone interested in bidding on the ball can contact Gresnick or bid at the scramble June 23.

There will be two flights and one co-ed flight. Prizes will be awarded to the top teams in each flight. There will also be prizes for closest to the pin on No. 2 and No. 5, and the longest drive on No. 7.

Food and soft drinks will be provided at the tournament.

For an entry form or to contact Gresnick, call (785) 594-2448 at BJHS or (785) 594-6425 at home. He can also be reached by e-mail at
