The 8th Annual NIU Law Golf Outing & Awards Dinner will be held on Friday, June 8th at the River Heights Golf Course in DeKalb. Once again, the Northern Law Blog will be sponsoring a hole at the golf outing. That means that it is time again for the annual contest to guess which hole we will be sponsoring.
Every year the Law Blog offers a prize to the first person to guess the hole at which the Northern Law Blog sign will appear. In past years the prizes have been limited to a drink of the winner's choosing at the 19th hole (it's an open bar). Last year, however, the Law Blog was able to secure this matching set of Dreyer Foote coffee mugs as prizes:
But no one won them. In fact, NO ONE HAS EVER WON THIS CONTEST!!! Two years ago we only had a handful of guesses. Last year we only had nine guesses and no one guessed Hole 10. I know there were a lot of disappointed coffee-drinking blog readers at last year's golf outing. So, you will be happy to hear that the coffee mugs have rolled over into this year's prize pool.
But the Law Blog has been having a tremendous year. This year we are really going all out. This year we are actually going to give the winner something to put in the coffee mugs:
That's right. A Starbucks gift card of unknown value. (The Law Blog Accounting Department is still running some numbers.)
Here are the rules. Simply comment to this post with a number between 1 and 18. The winner will be determined on June 8th once we locate our sponsor sign on the golf course. If there are multiple correct guesses, the first one to post wins. The winner need not be present at the golf outing, although I will have the prizes at the golf course if the winner is present. If the winner is not present, we will make arrangements the following week for the awards presentation. Good Luck.
