Duffer Madness Golf Tournament July 31

By Jeff Jones, Tournament Director

   The Orofino Maniac Boosters are proud to again sponsor the annual Duffer Madness golf tournament. This 18-hole tournament is a four-person scramble held at the Orofino Golf and Country Club on Saturday, July 31.

   Thanks to the ongoing support of our community this event continues to be the Boosters’ major fundraiser each year and all funds raised are used to support Orofino High School athletic programs. These programs are under constant threat of budget cuts, and funding through the Boosters’ efforts has provided much needed financial support to our student athletes. This funding is made possible only through the generosity of so many supporters. We would like to thank each of you.

   Sign up begins at 7:30 a.m. with tee off at 8:30 a.m. Lunch will be provided. Each golfer will also receive a goodie bag and special Maniac ball marker.

   The Hole in One contest offers prizes including $5,000, your choice of Callaway or TaylorMade clubs or a SkyCaddie GPS, and your choice from a premium electronics package and airline tickets for two to your destination. We would love to give away these prizes and invite you to win!

   There will also be prizes for various contests such as longest drive, longest putt, and closest to the pin for both the men and women. The golf team from Orofino High School will provide some fun games to play as well in an effort to raise some additional money for their program. We will have a raffle for golf packages at area golf courses, Booster merchandise and other items.

   Please come out and participate in this important event. Your contribution on behalf of the student athletes and Orofino Maniac Boosters will be greatly appreciated.           

   Sign-ups are being accepted at Orofino Golf and Country Club or you can call (208) 476-3117 to sign up via telephone.
