Greetings Slap Shot-Golf Fans!!!
Heres your lucky invitaion to hit the 18th tee with the cast from the movie Slap Shot and you help support the Blonde Sparkle twin "Louise Arters" MS fundraiser to buy a new van with a wheelchair lift for Louise! The 1st Annual Slap Shot Golf Outing Monday, June 28th, in Philadelphia PA!
We've finalized the date, the golf course, and the PRICING to make this event affordable for everyone who can possibly attend! The gentlemen at 1Stop4Golf back in Philadelphia have outdone themselves putting together an event now packaged to make everybody happy! They have been working incredibly hard on this event and they have gotten the golf course to share our vision regarding the event.
||Now, for ONLY $125 per golfer, you can have the opportunity to golf with the cast member s of the greatest hockey movie ever made! Your $125 fee includes 18 holes of golf with a cart, goodie bag, snacks, beverages, and the after party dinnerand reception. IF anybody would like to attend ONLY the after party and not golf, they can do so for only $25 per person.
How about that Slap Shot fans? A very affordable fun day of golfing and talking Old Time Hockey hockey with the likes of Paul D'Amato (Dr Hook), Yvon Barrette (Denis Lemieux), Mark Bousquet (Poodle), Guido Tenesi (Billy Charlebois), Jean Tetreault (Andre Bergeron), Chris Murney (Hanrahan), Janet & Louise Arters (Sparkle Twins), Jerry Houser (Dave "Killer" Carlson), Goldie Goldthorpe, Woody Espy (Chiefs stickboy). John McClintock (TV 10 announcer), Mickey McQuillan (Dickie Dunn's son), and Cliff Thompson (Walt the bus driver) so far! And we've also invited the gentleman who owns the 1970 GTO that Newman drove in the movie to attend as well. There's a photo opportunity in itself!
Many other cast members have also been invited and I am waiting for confirmation that they can attend. Including Paul Newman (Reggie Dunlop) (THIS WOULD BE A MIRACLE IF HE COMES, BUT I ASKED!), Ned Braden (Michael Ontkean), Yvon Lebrun (Ron Docken), Jean-Guy Drouin (Yvan Ponton), Johnny Upton (Allan Nicholls), Morris Mo Wanchuk (Brad Sullivan), The Hanson Brothers (Steve Carlson, Jeff Carlson, & Dave Hanson), Nick Brophy (John Gofton), Syracuse player (Dan Belisle) he fought with Reggie Dunlop (Newman) in the final game, Announcer Jim Carr (Andrew Duncan), Final Game Referee (Myron Odegaard).
Aside from cast members, Philadelphia Flyers Hall of Famer Bob Watson will be bringing many of the other Broad Street Bullies Alumni as well. The Philadelphia Phantoms will also have a contingency of current and former players. I have also personally invited my personal friends Tony Esposito (Hall of Fame Blackhawk's goalie), Ted Lindsay (Hall of Fame Red Wings player), & Don Larsen (who pitched the perfect game in the 1956 World Series for the NY Yankees). Many others are still in the works and will be added soon. This is worth the price of admission just to get some of these autographs alone!
