On Saturday, October 6 (this does not conflict with a Husker Football game), Tim Patterson is again organizing a golf outing for the UNOmaha Women’s Swimming and Diving Team. This event was a lot of fun last year, and I usually don’t like to golf but I did like this. It is not a fundraiser it is more of a friendraiser – getting supporters of the swimming community together. Eagle Run will be the course, with a late morning tee time of 10:00 am (with lunch afterwards at Denny Chapman’s place – right next to the course). Masters, boosters, alumni, and friends are welcome to be part of this. The entry fee is the same as last year - $40 ($160 per team). It would be awesome if we could get at least 2 foursomes from our group! Contact Tim ( or Todd ( Please let us know asap, even if it is tentative. Check out the flyer!
