2010 Charro Foundation Golf Marathon


									2010 Charro Foundation Golf Marathon
Announcement Issue - March 23, 2010
             Official Leader Board and Newsletter of The 2010 Charro Foundation Golf Marathon Golf Marathon

What is the Classic 100 Golf Marathon?
It is an incredibly fun event, which will raise money for the Charro Foundation and support the construction of the
Miracle League of Arizona baseball field. For more information, go to It is a way for golfers, both
duffer and low handicapper alike, to rally support while doing something they will really enjoy - playing golf.
When compared to a traditional golf tournament, golf marathons are more fun and substantially more profitable.

Here's the Fun Part
Yes, you will play 100 holes. No, we're not kidding. One hundred holes are very doable. Many golfers in past
marathons have been able to play more than 100 holes. In fact, the record for a golf marathon is an amazing 409
holes in one day! Several changes in the format of the game are made to speed up the play...
           Every golfer has his own cart, and plays at his own speed.
           Golfers may hit multiple balls, and each ball counts as one hole played.
           We play "ready golf" with a maximum field of 54 golfers.
           No looking for lost balls, OB's, etc. ? merely drop another ball and keep hitting.
           Whenever your score on a hole reaches triple bogey, pick up, score the hole as completed, and move on
         to the next hole.
           You may play any hole, or series of holes, in any order, as many times as you want.
           On the green, any putt inside the leather is a "gimme."
           Longest Drive and Closest-to-Pin contests all-day long.

What's In It for Me?
Besides a lot of fun and the satisfaction of helping The Charro Foundation in a big way, you will receive...
           Breakfast, Lunch and continuous refreshments.
           Plenty of golf balls to smack away.
           The opportunity to earn some great prizes, depending on the amount of pledges that you have raised.
           A tax write-off for any donated funds.

Ok, What's the Catch?
Well, there really isn't any catch. Each golfer who participates in the Golf Marathon will be required to do three
           Give a day, & play golf at the golf course. Shotgun start right after breakfast.
           Sponsor yourself for at least $1 per hole. Your $100 donation is tax deductible.
           Solicit sponsorships from business associates and friends with a goal of raising an additional $24 per
         hole...that amounts to $2,500 each golfer can raise for this most worthwhile cause. A field of 40 golfers, each
         raising $2,500, would easily reach our goal of $100,000. WOW!
Ok, "Gimme" the Details
The 2010 Charro Foundation Golf Marathon Golf Marathon will be played on May 14, 2010 at the Mountain
Shadows Golf Club, with the location details to follow in upcoming newsletters. The Marathon will give you a rare op
portunity to play on a golf course, almost by yourself, and complete the equivalent of a year's worth of golf in one
day! Our day's agenda will be something like this...
           Breakfast at sun up.
           Shot gun start.
           Flail away for at least 100 holes.
           Marathon stops when it either gets too dark to see, or the golf course staff runs us off.
           Go home, soak your muscles, and rub on some Ben Gay!
           Smile a lot - you've done a great thing today!

Did You Say I Could Win Some Great Prizes?
Yep! All golfers who can acquire sponsorship greater than our requested $25 per hole can reap the following....
          For $50 per hole - A 4-day / 3-night stay for two, including some airfare money.
          For $100 per hole - A 5-day / 6-night vacation for two at beautiful Kapalua, Maui, HI.
