The Tenth Annual Olmstead Percussion Scholarship Golf Tournament will be held on Sunday, July 27, 2008, beginning with a "Shotgun Start" at 1:00 p.m. at the Meadow Lane Golf Course in Indiana, Pa. Select for a registration flyer.
Gary Olmstead was the percussion instructor for the IUP Music Department for thirty-seven years before his retirement in 2003. A scholarship fund for percussion students was established in his name, and the main fundraiser is an annual golf tournament. The cost to participate in the event is a very reasonable $85. It includes all fees, a picnic dinner, and a tax-deductible donation to the fund.
