Alumni Gustavus Golf Tournament a Success!
On Sunday, May 18, 2008, 52 golfers and several passengers and volunteers boarded an Allen Marine catamaran and sailed for Gustavus for the 4th Annual Alumni Golf Tournament. After arriving in Gustavus, the hearty group braved the wind and relished the sun to play an18 hole scramble at the Mount Fairweather Golf Course. Golfers included Alumni & Friends members, UAS faculty and staff, government officials and local business owners. The tournament raised over $4,000 and added several new members to the UAS Alumni & Friends.
4th Annual Alumni Mariners Game brings together alumni and supporters of UAS
Over 60 alumni and friends of UAS joined Chancellor John Pugh at Safeco Field in Seattle on July 19. Attendees and their families hailed from all over Alaska, Washington and Oregon to enjoy the game from an exclusive right-field suite complete with ballpark goodies to eat, and a visit from the Mariners Moose! This event has proven to be a great way to get people together who have since moved on from their time at UAS in a fun and convenient location. Look for postcards in May of next year – we hope you’ll consider coming to cheer on the Mariners and see some old UAS friends at next summer’s game day.

The object of the tournament was to raise money for the Sitka Campus general scholarship fund and to help start a local Sitka Chapter of Alumni & Friends. The winning team at the Sitka Golf Tournament was led by UAS Personnel Director Kirk McAllister of Juneau
