Edmond Rotary Golf Tournament at Kickingbird Next Week

    Next week, the Rotary Club of Edmond will hold its annual golf tournament. As you know, the golf tournament is our major fundraiser every year. This year, the tournament is returning to Kickingbird Golf Course.

    Even if you are not a golfer, please plan on joining your fellow Rotarians for lunch at Kickingbird on Wednesday, June 1, 2011. You’ll have a great time in a relaxed atmosphere. There are special activities for everyone, including the non-golfers, and the activities involve winning prizes. Robert Gibson sent me an email about one that involves a miniature Bedlam football field on wheels, a discarded porcelain fixture, and a ball toss. It seemed a bit strange to me, but I guess it will make sense when we’re there next week.

Olympic Gold Medalist Bart Conner Visits the Rotary Club of Edmond

    This week, our special guest is Olympic gold medal gymnast, Bart Conner. After competing in the Montreal Olympics in 1976, Conner came from his home in Illinois to attend the University of Oklahoma, where he competed on the gymnastics team. While at OU, Conner earned 14 NCAA All-America honors and led his team to two national titles. In 1984, Conner won two Olympic gold medals, including winning the parallel bars with a perfect 10.

    In 1991, Conner was inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame, and in 1997, he was inducted into the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame. Conner is involved in several ventures involving gymnastics, fitness, healthy lifestyles, promoting charities and delivering inspirational speeches.

    In 1996, Conner married former Romanian gymnast, Nadia Comăneci, who in 1976 was the first gymnast ever to be awarded a perfect score of 10 in an Olympic gymnastic event. Their son, Dylan Paul Conner, is about to celebrate his fifth birthday.

    Please welcome Bart Conner to the Rotary Club of Edmond.
