MAST UPDATE: MASTers Golf Tournament Fundraiser
Monday, September 11, 2023
Hello MAST Athletes, Parents, Friends, and Coaches:
Now that the State Fair goat and poultry barns are sparkling clean, it is time to sign up for the first of two “social” fundraisers we will be holding this Fall. Please feel free to extend this invitation to family and friends who might enjoy nine holes of golf on an autumn evening in Minnesota.
Fourth Annual MAST(ers) Golf Tourney!
When: Thursday, October 5th. 4pm shotgun start
Where: Hiawatha Golf Course
The format will be a 9-hole, 4-person scramble, meaning that all players hit a shot, you choose which of the four balls is best, everyone picks up their balls and plays from the best spot and you continue until you get the ball in the hole. Your foursome will maintain a single score.
This will be a fun, casual event with very little golf experience required and will have some on-course competitions where you might win a prize! In fact, the only real golf experience you need is the ability to fork over some cash.
Sign up as foursome, or one, either way we’ll take care of you.
All are welcome – no need to be part of the MAST family to be included!

After the golf and fellowship on the course, we’ll head inside the clubhouse where you can grab snacks & beverages as we run the raffle drawing and silent auction. And to make the event come to life, we need donations for the raffle and auction items. If you have anything to offer up as a giveaway, enter it in the link below. These donations have played a key part in helping fund the supplies we need to keep MAST running! Ideas for donations: Gift cards at stores/restaurants, access to sporting event, wine, golf gear, tickets – nothing is too big or too small – we just appreciate your generosity!

One more (profound) thought to share: Why We Fundraise.
The 2023-24 MAST Team Fee of $275 is unchanged from 2022-23. We had a successful year of fundraising last year and for the first 23 years of our existence the MAST Board and Coaches have been very good stewards of the team’s finances. So it made sense to hold the line on our team fee for 2023-24. $275 may still seem expensive, but keep this in mind. Way back in 1975-76, I paid over $300 to join my club ski team. We trained four days a week back then. MAST will be training five to six days a week. The fundraising we engage in during the Fall months helps us keep our team fees low, relative to 1975 especially. I hope you will participate.
Much More News to come in a day or two. For now, sign up to golf and make a raffle donation if you have the means. And spread the word.
