The Carlsbad High School Dance Team Boosters are hosting their annual Golf Tournament to raise the funds to send the Lancer Dancers varsity dance team to their national dance competition in Orlando, Florida. This year’s tournament, Monday, October 28th at El Camino Country Club in Oceanside, will once again include a “Chopper Ball Drop” event.
Prior to tee-off, 1,000 golf balls will be dropped from a helicopter — raining down on a temporary golf hole. Each numbered golf ball is like a raffle ticket, carrying a chance to win $2,500. The first golf ball that goes into the hole or ends up closest to the hole will win the cash! Chopper Ball Drop tickets are still available at a cost $10 each.Winners need not be present, but must be 18 years of age or older to participate.
Golfers, Sponsors, and Raffle Items Still Needed
The tournament is a Best Ball Scramble format, with registration starting at 10:30 a.m. and a shotgun start at 12 noon. The event also features a putting contest, “longest drive” and “closest to the pin” competitions for men and women. According to tournament coordinator, Greg Crump, “there’s room for more players and sponsors, as well as a need for donated raffle and silent auction items.” After golf, the fun will continue with a buffet dinner, raffle prizes, a silent auction, and special performances by the Varsity Lancer Dancer and Junior Varsity XCalibur Dance Teams.
Community Support is a Cornerstone to the Team’s Success
For the past several years, the golf tournament, private donations and other fundraising efforts have generated the funds needed to send the Lancer Dancers to Orlando, Florida, to compete in the Universal Dance Association (UDA) National Championships. In nine of the past 13 years, the CHS Lancer Dancers have brought home UDA National Championships in at least one of the two competition categories. Last year, the Lancer Dancers took 2nd Place in the large group Hip-Hop category, narrowly missing yet another National Championship.
