The Mockingbird Foundation is excited to announce the first golf tournament exclusively for Phish fans. The inaugural Runaway Open will be held Sunday, October 30th, at the beautiful Arroyo Golf Club in Las Vegas, NV. (The start time of 11:55 am should leave players at least several hours between tournament play and show time.)
To register, make a donation to the Mockingbird Foundation of $150 (which covers green fees, cart fees, practice balls, tournament administration, and a nominal contribution to the Foundation) via PayPal or Dwolla. We'll get in touch within a matter of hours, and keep you posted as Vegas approaches. Registration is open now but will likely close soon, as our inaugural event is currently limited to only sixteen (16!) players. This post will be updated as soon as we reach that limit. Therefore, please act quickly, and tell anyone you know who's going to the Vegas shows and/or plays golf: It's time to hit some balls!
Update: We expanded from 16 to 20 players, and all spots are now filled.

The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
