 A letter from from the Bleil Golf Tournament Planning Team:
Greetings Cowboys, Cowgirls, Alumni and Friends,
 We hope this letter finds you and your loved ones, Healthy and Happy.
It is that time of the year again: Winter, cold and snow, if you live in
the Mid-West or East coast.  Out in the Wild, Wild West, we are in
shorts and t-shirts.  However, we will miss the moisture during the
long days of summer.
 It’s time to start thinking about Golf! The 6th Annual Coach Bleil Memorial
Golf Classic is just around the corner and the planning is in full
swing. We need your help to grow this! 
This year’s tournament will be held at UNM South Championship Golf Course,
on Saturday July 8, 2017.  Entry fee is $200 per person ($175 if
you register by the early bird date of June 1st).
