Saturday’s Nonprofit Invitational Tournament competition benefits the registered nonprofit organizations rather than individual winners. Our 2017 goal is 80 teams playing for 30 local nonprofit organizations.

Prizes for Nonprofit Organizations:
First Place – $5,000 sponsored by Bergey’s Inc.
Second Place – $2,500 sponsored by Detweiler, Hershey & Associates, P.C.
Third Place – $1,250 sponsored by Compass Ion Advisors, LLC

Fourth through Sixth – $500

Novice Division–$1000 first place; $500 second place.  The Novice division is contingent upon a minimum of nine teams registering for it.  You must indicate your players’ preference for it on your registration form.  To qualify BOTH team members must be either new to the tournament or have never qualified for afternoon play in the past.

Two players per team. Play will continue unless there is lightning, thunder or other dangerous weather conditions.

Returning Winner Rule – For any team that won 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place the prior two years, the players must return for the next two years with a new partner who has not won 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place in the prior two years. Eleven players are affected by this rule for 2017: Robert Brownell, Ivan Derstine, Charlie Law, Kim Longacre, Owen Longacre, Bryce Mininger, Drew Mininger, Delphin Monga, Mbusa Monga, Paul Rampogu, Scott Shayda.

Independent teams may register to play for one of the participating nonprofit organizations. Registration is $150/team of two players and includes lunch.

Clinics will be held at no cost Sunday afternoons in April and May from 2:00-4:00 pm on the MHC lawn.
