After a one-year hiatus, the Omaha Bar Association’s Field Day will be returning on Monday, July 24, at Champions Run, according to OBA Executive Director Dave Sommers.
It is open to all OBA members (no guests).
Golfers should organize their foursome and email him at email@example.com with the names in the team and which format the team wants to play. Golf groups of fewer than four people and single players are welcome, but may be matched with other players as needed.
Golf is $95 per player and includes lunch, greens fees, cart fees, pin prizes, tournament prizes and driving range access. Mulligans will be sold at the clubhouse.
For the first time, there will be a traveling championship belt (à la boxers and wrestlers) awarded.
Golf teams can choose between the 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. shotgun starts, and between playing in a scramble format or a play-your-own-ball format (pegged against each players’ handicap).
The tennis tournament will begin at 10 a.m. and will finish around lunchtime. Singles and doubles awards will be given out. To sign up, email Sommers.
Tennis is $10 and includes prizes and lunch. The reception/awards banquet is $25 per person.
The pool is open all day to Field Day participants.
The buffet dinner/awards ceremony following afternoon golf, emceed by Judge Michael Coffey, is an additional $25 per attendee. Reception starts at 5:30 p.m.; dinner at 6:30 p.m.
“If you can’t make one of the sports events, you can still attend the dinner,” Sommers said.
