Deadliest Open Holes #8, #13, #14, #15

Dear world,

I write all the content for the newsletters, etc for our Deadliest Open™ Celebrity Golf Tournament on WordPress because it is really simple.

You lucky subscribers get the newsletter before it goes to our website, whoo hoo 😉

Hope to see you all the Deadliest Open!

If you can believe it, we are a mere 14 days until the kick-off begins for the 2011 Deadliest Open™ Celebrity Golf Tournament! We’d like to share more with you about our great sponsors and the fun events we have planned for Golfers and Spectators on August 27, 2011 at Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, Washington.

In this newsletter we are going to highlight a few holes and celebrity golfers so we can finalize some of our golf tournament details to make this a spectacular event for you!

Hole Sponsor Highlights

Every day (ish) until the tournament we will be highlighting a Hole Sponsor from the 2011 Deadliest Open™ Celebrity Golf Tournament. We still have a lot of work to accomplish to make this the most exciting tournament in the Northwest!

Hole #8: Northwest Long Drivers

On Prospector Hole #8, golfers are given the opportunity to improve their score and raise funds for charity by hiring professional long drivers to take their drive for them. The self-proclaimed “Northwest Bomb Squad”, includes Bruce Evans, Paul Larson and Bo Blacken and they will be out all day hitting trick shots and prodigious drives for each scramble group.

Hole #13: Alaskan Brewing

Alaskan Brewing is kind enough to donate beer to the Deadliest Open™ even though they are all going to be in Alaska for their annual company meeting! Their Washington distribution team will be on hand to get yourself a cold Alaskan Beer. Thanks guys!

Hole #14: Hampton Inn

Deadliest Open Sponsor and Supporter, Hampton Inn, will be out on Hole#14 with water and cookies for all golfers. What a treat. The restrooms are also located on Hole #14.

Be on the lookout for a raffle including one night’s stay at the Ellensburg Hampton Inn!

Hole #15: Roger Jobs Motors Volkswagen

Sponsor and Tumble Creek Homeowner Roger Jobs has generously donated a 2012 Volkswagen Passat Diesel (value including tax and license is $37,500.00) for a Deadliest Open Hole-in-One opportunity! Roger tells us that it is an all new model built at the new VW factory in Chattanooga, TN.

The 2012 Volkswagen Passat will be parked on Tee Box #15 for your viewing pleasure. Good luck to all golfers participating and thanks to Roger Jobs Motors for this phenomenal sponsorship!

Golf With a Captain Spotlight

We got to talk with Captain Greg Moncrief before he went up for his summer fishing stint:

Hi Winnie,

I have been fishing for 25 years and running the Farwest Leader for 12 years. I grew up in SE Alaska, so I have always been around fishing.

Ragnhild was born and raised in Norway, then she came over when she was 18 to work on the Northern Glacier. 4 years after we first met, we got married and now we have been married for 21 years and have 2 daughters. Ragnhild likes to come on the boat for king crab, but I doubt I will get her back on for opies.



After hearing the great news yesterday that Soper and Lenny were coming to the Deadliest Open we just had to call and thank Keith and Monte!

Captain Monte Colburn is an avid golfer and super stoked to play int he tournament for the Seattle Fishermen’s Memorial. He shared a little bit about him and thanked us immensely for putting this charity tournament together!

Morning…. lets see, born So. Lake Tahoe and have resided on the North shore entire life… Been fishing 24 years and the only crab season I ever missed was in 2004/05 while working on the oil spill outside of Dutch Harbor created by the Selendang Ayu, a 900 foot soybean carrier… the crab boat I broke in on was the 110 foot Juno. From there I worked 10 years almost to the day on the Wizard with Capt John Jorgenson…received my 1600 ton U.S.C.G. ” Mates” license in 1992 and upgraded to “Master” a couple years later, few in the crab industry hold such a document as it’s not required on most boats in the fleet… Shortly after that, I Captained the 155 foot Seafisher in 1998 and 1999 to great success but yet another opportunity arose and I moved on to the 110 foot Norseman. A vessel similar to the Northwestern, this boat was part of the Federal buyback and at that point in 2005 I returned to the Wizard to work alongside my brother.

An avid golfer for several years now, any day on the course is a good day!! I’ve been looking forward to the Deadliest Open for a few months and expect it to be the highlight of the summer…I would like to say thanks to Peter Jacobson and all the folks at the resort for their time and effort to support such a great cause in the Fishermen’s Memorial Fund…. also to the people who have donated their time in organizing the event a special thanks to all.


PS: You are welcome, Monte. And, just in case we haven’t told you yet, Captain John Jorgenson is also coming to the Deadliest Open to golf!

Crosby LeVeen just got done with fishing and when we asked him what he’d been up to, he replied, “Practicing my swing, ladies. See you both soon!”
