CLAREMORE — The third annual Hillcat Hacker Invitational takes place on the Rogers State University Claremore campus Friday, Nov. 9, as university students, friends and alumni tee off a weekend of RSU Homecoming 2012 events.

The Hillcat Hacker Invitational is a game for everyone. Pros, amateurs and hackers alike can play amidst the hazards of RSU’s scenic campus.

Participants will compete in a four-person scramble while navigating around historic RSU landmarks such as Preparatory Hall and the Thomas Jefferson statue. Trophies will be awarded to the winning team for each flight. Great prizes, including a PlayStation 3, iPod Touch and themed gift baskets will be given away by process of a random drawing at the conclusion of the tournament. The event is in conjunction with RSU Homecoming 2012 and all proceeds will benefit the RSU Alumni Association and Hillcat Athletics.

Participants can bring one golf club of their choice or choose from a selection of clubs provided on site.
