The early bird deadline to register for the John Gill Memorial Golf Tournament is fast approaching.

Golfers have until May 1 to meet the early bird deadline and register for the John Gill Memorial Golf Tournament, an event that supports bursaries for students in financial need. Open to everyone and golfers of all levels, the tournament is Friday, June 12 at the Picture Butte Golf Club. Registration fees are $150 per person with corporate or hole sponsorship available.

John Gill (BA 1994) was the driving force behind the original "Birdies for Bursaries" golf tournament, which has raised thousands of dollars for U of L student bursaries. The tournament was renamed the John Gill Memorial Golf Tournament in honour of his passing in November, 2007.

Gill was a good friend of the University of Lethbridge, the Alumni Association and the community. He worked as a lawyer and respected Crown Prosecutor in Lethbridge in addition to raising an active family and serving as the U of L Alumni Association President and volunteering as member of the Board of Governors and Senate.

Those who register in advance of the May 1 early bird deadline are eligible to win a free registration.
