CHIP-IN CHALLENGE! 
There will be a new challenge this year that is a golfer’s version of skee- ball! This challenge encourages attendees to CHIP-IN and support youth mentoring. Participants will have multiple chances to “chip” their ball into the holes. If they land in more than one hole during their turn, the points associated with each hole they land in are added together.  The participant with the most points at the end of the shift will win a prize.

  • *If there are multiple players with the same points, a random drawing will be held to pull the winning name(s). 

 

To make this even more exciting, there is a special giveaway happening too! All participants will have the opportunity to purchase tickets for the chance to win a 10’x12’ Garden Shed, sponsored by Superior Sheds of Rock Island. And don't forget about the those Raffle Packs. Those will be available for purchase with the tickets enclosed good for entering over 15 prize drawings, QC Area Realtors bags challenge and the Wells Fargo 50/50 daily cash drawing.

come hungry and thirsty because food and beverages will be available. Each shift includes food provided by area grocers, restaurants and pubs.  Many are preparing their “specialty appetizer” or a dish they are known for. There will also be a cash bar open at all shifts.
