Golf Contest

Hello everyone,

As I have mentioned before, we weren't able to snag the free golf for everybody; however, the Lansdowne Resort was kind enough to let us raffle off a free round of golf! So here's the deal:

Send us a picture, video, or really anything of you related to golf to: newsletter(at)cfunited(dot) com, in addition to your registered name (so we know who you are!), with a subject line of: Golf Contest Submission.

Yes, it's that easy.

Only one (1) entry allowed per person. Those who would like to participate must be registered; this may be as an attendee, speaker or sponsor. Either way, the winner has to be registered for CFUnited. Please only submit if you plan to use the free round of golf! The coolest/most creative/most awesome/best submission decided by me will be chosen as the winner! All entries must be submitted by June 30, 2010 to be eligible.

The winner will receive a round of golf for a total of 4 players. The winner will be responsible for selecting the other 3 players. This prize is transferable, so if the winner changes his/her mind, they can pass it on to whomever they choose.

If you would like to be eligible for this prize, but have yet to register, please do so now!

Also, take advantage of Lansdowne Resort's very own Spa Minérale, where attendees get a 10 percent discount.

Good luck to all!
