BAF Legends of Advertising Golf Tournament

Mark your calendars — the Boise Advertising Federation’s Annual Legends of Advertising Golf Tournament is scheduled for Friday October 9th at Banbury Golf Club.

The tournament, which honors Britt Bowden and Rex McArthur, kicks off with a shotgun start at 10:00am.  Proceeds from the tournament benefit the Boise State University, University of Idaho, BYU-Idaho and Idaho State University Advertising Clubs, who compete annually in the National Student Advertising Competition.

So, if you’re ready to once again hurl obscenities at a little white ball for an afternoon in early October, here’s what you need to know:
