RSU to Host 2nd Annual Hillcat Hacker Invitational, Nov. 11

The second annual Hillcat Hacker Invitational takes place on the Rogers State University Claremore campus Friday, Nov. 11, as University students, friends and alumni tee off a weekend of RSU Homecoming 2011 events.

The Hillcat Hacker Invitational is a game for everyone. Pros, amateurs and hackers alike can play amidst the hazards of RSU's scenic campus. The game features a one-of-a-kind 18-hole golf course that takes golfers on a tour of RSU's historical buildings, monuments and spacious green spaces. Players will use special non-destructive golf balls.

"A great deal of time and effort has gone into improving the Hacker for its second year. Everyone, university friends and alumni, had so much fun at last year's event and we are expecting more of the same this year" said event chair Clarice Doyle. "We are hoping for even more participation from the RSU students and our community."

Remaining sponsorship opportunities range from a $150 Hole and Tee Box sponsorship to the $2,500 Eagle Sponsor level that includes the sponsor's logo on the event t-shirts and promotions, signs on two holes, recognition as a presenting sponsor, two teams of four, two recognition announcements during the RSU Homecoming basketball games, two reserved seats and Hillcat Club hospitality access at the games, along with six additional general admissions passes.

The individual entry fee is $50 per player or $200 for a team of four. This includes golf, t-shirt and lunch. RSU students can enter for $25 per player.

Participants will compete in a four-person scramble while navigating around historic RSU landmarks such as Preparatory Hall and the Thomas Jefferson statue.

Trophies will be awarded to the winning team for each flight. Great prizes, including a PlayStation 3 and Nintendo DSi as well as two gift baskets – Hillcat Pride and Around Town – will be given away by the process of a random drawing at the conclusion of the tournament. The event is in conjunction with Hillcat Homecoming 2011 and all proceeds will benefit the RSU Alumni Association and Hillcats athletics.

Participants can bring one golf club of their choice or choose from a selection of clubs provided on site.
