12th Annual Coach Harry Groves Golf Tournament Slated for May 17, 18, 2013

Coach Groves with last year's winner of the Golden Putter Dennis Hendershott.

The weekend of May 17 and 18, 2013 (correction!) has been set aside for this year's Penn State Track and Field Alumni Reunion and the 12th Annual Coach Harry Groves Golf Tournament. This comes again on an off week following the Big Ten Outdoor Meet and the NCAA Regional Meet.  That means you can again meet some of the current athletes and staff as well as alums from up to 8 different decades!  Planning is already underway and we will keep you posted on any details right here at the blog with it all.

Remember, our Reunion is open to anyone with an interest in Penn State Track and Field.  The golf tournament is in a format that allows even horrid golfers like me to get their name engraved on the ultimate prize, the Coach Groves Memorial Cup!  (Hint, it's not a Cup and Coach is still very much alive and can still kick your butt.)

Set the weekend aside and come meet others sharing the greatest tradition in Track and Field.


  1. How many pounds over our college weight are we allowed? I heard officers had imposed a limit.

  2. My research into this scurrilous rumor leads me to the office of Mayor Bloomberg in NYC. In a hastily arranged meeting of Blog Idiot Officers, we have rewritten his original rules to allow anyone within 800 lbs. of their "fighting" weight in college to participate in the golf and reunion. Thanks gives me a cushion of at least 50 lbs., so I feel safe. In addition, sugary drinks and adult beverages larger than 16 oz. will be encouraged at the event by the Keeper of the Beer. Thumbing our nose at Mommy Mayor for 12 straight years!


Thanks for commenting. Keep up the good work! (Try to mention others to encourage them to comment too!)
