Luncheon Meetings Start on August 30th
The first luncheon meeting of the new year takes place on Tuesday, August 30th and feature Kelly Sheffield, UW Women's Volleyball Coach. In previous years we had started with the UW head football coach, but this year Paul Chryst decided that he and his coaches would not do speaking engagements during the season. Hopefully we can have him join us in the off season.
Please send an email to Peter Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org to let him know if you'll be attending the first luncheon. We need to try to get a good head count for the chef to be able to plan the meal.
The Madison Sports Hall of Fame was started in 1963 to recognize and honor great athletes and sports figures from Madison. For more information on the history of the club, click here. The club hosts weekly meetings from August through June and holds the induction banquet every June.
