Golf tourney planned to help AHS football
The Aspen Times
Golfers will hit the Aspen Golf Course next weekend for the third annual Aspen Skier Gridiron Classic benefit golf tournament.
The team scramble format tournament will be held Saturday, June 7.
The objective of the tournament is to raise money to provide the Aspen High School football players with the latest in protective helmets. The funds also will go to supplement travel expenses for the Skiers.
The tournament this year will be directed by head coach Ryan Triece, an AHS business teacher and former assistant who has taken over the program. Triece is from a football coaching family in Michigan.
The tournament will be a four-person scramble with a 9 a.m. shotgun start. Entry includes carts, range balls, player gift bags and on-course beverage service. In addition, lunch is provided in the clubhouse after the tournament.
Awards will be given to the top teams.
There will be prizes for closest to pin, longest drive and longest putt.
Entry fee is $175 per player or $600 per team.
Triece said the benefit golf tournament is a great opportunity to help out the local football program. There will be a silent auction after the tournament with a variety of items.
The Aspen High School football program will continue its spring camp this week, Monday through Thursday. A scrimmage is scheduled for next Friday, June 6.
In addition, the Buckle Up Youth Football Camp will be held Thursday and Friday, June 12-13, sponsored by the AHS football program.
The camp is for incoming third- through eight-graders.
