Thank you for taking the time to consider partnering and participating in the 5th Annual Golden Bears Soccer Golf Tournament, herein referred to as the Len Vickery Farewell Classic.
The Golden Bears Soccer program has been in existence since 1969 and has achieved five U SPORTS/CIS/CIAU National Championships (2016, 2006, 2003, 1979 and 1972) and 11 Canada West Championships (2016, 2011,
2003, 1999, 1998, 1995, 1988, 1981, 1979, 1973, and 1972).
Members of the alumni and friends of the program are pulling together to support the current and future men’s soccer teams. This event is a way to give back to the program and also re-connect with alumni with whom you may have lost touch with. We will also be using this occasion to recognize and honour coach Len Vickery, who will be heading into his last season as Head Coach of the Golden Bears Soccer Program.
The tournament will take place on Friday, August 24th, 8:30 a.m. shot-gun start at Red Tail Landing Golf Club, located on Highway 2, just south of the city. The tournament will be a Texas Scramble format with a lunch to follow.
With your help as a registrant and/or sponsor, the Golden Bears men’s soccer team will benefit greatly, with funds being allocated to the recruitment of top calibre players, travel costs, training equipment, and the improvement of soccer specific facilities.
Thanks again for your time, and hopefully we can count on your support. Sincerely,
University of Alberta Golden Bears Soccer Alumni Society
