Hello Gentlemen,


The annual Beta Xi Alumni Day in beautiful Stillwater, OK. is set, mark your calendars for April 25, 2015 (Saturday). We are going to do something a little different this year but I encourage everyone to come out for the event if you are able to.


This year we will be having the golf tournament only, we will forgo the hotel banquent room and dinner agenda for the evening. Now don't run away yet, we will host a luncheon at the golf course after the tournament is over. This is for everybody - the Alumni golfers, any Alumni + this year bring your spouse or significant other with you. The golf tournament will be the same as always; held at Lakeside Golf Club (5201 N. Washington St. Stillwater, OK. 74075), shotgun start at precisly 9:00 am, teams of 4 ($160 entry fee per team), prizes awarded for longest drive + closest to pin and tropheys for top three teams. The previous years have seen an average of about 40 players but the club assures me that they could host up to 80 players for us, so put a team together and get signed up. I would like to have as many KA alums as we can but I think we can also allow an open team registration. What I mean is a team could consist of you (the KA alum) and three of your friends, you & your spouse and two of her fun and outgoing friends (preferred), your adult child that still lives with you and his/her friends (no outside alcoholic beverages allowed on course), you get the jist. Teams have to be registered and paid for prior to tournament date, please email me your players name and you can pay for the team through this site under the "Dues" tab - put in the memo line that it is for golf.


The luncheon will be held in the clubs banquent room/outside patio area, food and beverages(water, tea, some sodas) will be provided - alcoholic beverages can be purchased through the club (I think just beers fellas, sorry). Lunch will be a mix of Oklahoma BBQ, typical BBQ sides, sauces, bread, pickles and peppers. You and whomever do not have to play in the tournament to enjoy the lunch; it doesn't matter how terrible the golfers play, lunch will be ready at 1:00 pm for all. After all have played and during the luncheon we will tally the scores to see who is the winner of the trophys and prizes so please continue to mingle amongst all guests. 


The late afternoon/evening is left up to you as to how you want to spend it. Visit the KA chapter house (the house was recently remodeled/refurbished), have dinner with brothers at one of the many area restaurants, celebrate 150 years of The Order with a drink at Willies Saloon (Garth Brooks sang many a tune at this establisment).


If you have questions about anything then please ask me; phone/text at 918-640-3023 or email at, I look forward to seeing everyone.
