June 2016 Newsletter

The OU Club of Colorado would like to thank you for your support of and interest in the inaugural Crimson & Cream Golf Classic. Due to low registration, we will be postponing this event until 2017. Please join me in thanking the committee (Jeff, Dave, and Ed) for their hard work. One thing I would ask of our members is to support these events earlier as there were a lot of last minute inquiries and some disappointment when people learned the event was postponed. We need your support much earlier in the process and will do our part to relay the information as it becomes available.
