The Berwyn Jaycees
Saturday April 19, 2008
Hey There. June is upon us and summer is just around the corner. However, I want to take You back to April of this Year and let You know about a fun, exciting and very worthwhile event. The Berwyn Jaycees
were proud to present their 4th Annual Monster Mini-Golf Pub Crawl.
On Saturday April 19, 2008 Jaycees from around the state of Illinois came to play miniature golf, drink some great spirits and came for just good fellowship and good will. Every year The Berwyn Jaycees put on a Monster-Mini Golf Pub Crawl. A Pub Crawl is a fun time when people can hop from bar to bar and enjoy a cold one with friends and acquaintances. Enjoy a beer, mixed drink or any spirit, but instead of just going to a single bar for say 6 drinks, people go to six bars and have one drink. This Monster-Mini Golf Pub Crawl, runs on a similar principal. Teams of 4 people play miniature golf at six selected bars in downtown Berwyn, right by the railroads tracks. Between the Harlem Avenue Metra Burlington Northern Station and The Berwyn Station lies many greats bars. Jaycees and friends and family of Jaycees traveled along the tracks and visited six bars to play miniature golf. At each bar there was one hole and each team would play at that hole. Holes are actually designed by the individuals bars themselves, in fact there is even a award for best hole, that is created by the bars. A team carries a scorecard and keeps score for the four players. Each card is authenticated and signed by each bar manager. Also each team has a specific route. Different teams have different routes so 50 teams aren't stepping all over each other. Each team has a unique order they play their holes, however by the end of the day, everyone will have played all the holes. Again, at each bar Jaycees, etc can enjoy an ice cold beer. Each bars offers drink special and a few of the bars offered food specials. This year The Berwyn Jaycees had 50 teams for Monster Mini-Golf. The cost for this event was just $60 per 4 person team. Just a mere $15 per person. Plus there was a early bird $50 special. This included the after party as well. All money and revenue generated today went to fund Berwyn Jaycees projects.
