Soo Blueliners golf tournament coming up

SAULT STE. MARIE — Coming up Friday, July 13th, is the 36th annual Soo Blue Liners golf tournament.

Like last years’ iteration, the tournament will be held at the Sault Country Club on Portage Avenue in Sault Ste. Marie.

This year, the Blueliners outing is a 9 hole, 4 person scramble.  The shotgun start will take place at 5 p.m., with a steak dinner to follow around 7 p.m.  Registration begins at 4 p.m.

In addition, both a silent auction and a live auction will be taking place.  The live auction will commence after golfing is done, but before the dinner starts.

Golfers who are, despite the date, feeling lucky, may take a swing at two hole in one opportunities.  Two chances at a new vehicle are being sponsored by Rodenroth Motors and O’Connor’s.

The cost for the Blueliner outing is $80 per person, $65 for dues-paying members of the Blueline Club, and $45 for students.  Persons interested in just the dinner may pay $20 for steak, baked potato, salad and vegetable.

“This is our major fundraiser for the year, and we are looking forward to having a nice turnout,” said Blueliners vice president Chris Ledergerber.

The Soo Blueliners Club is the major support group for hockey at Lake Superior State University.  Founded in 1982, members have raised money for Laker hockey through various events, such as the annual golf outing.

Interested golfers should contact Ledergerber at (906) 248-5732.
