The selected grand prize contestant will be required to successfully complete three putts to earn the cash prize. If the contestant fails to make the putt, a consolation prize will be awarded.
Keith Duncan, Publisher of Ping! Zine commented, ”As a company based in Louisiana, I think it’s safe to say we spend too much time on the golf course as it is. But we’re still very excited to bring the excitement of golf to this year’s conference.”
Ping! Zine also announced the initial details of its first ever Ping! Zine Charity Invitational Golf Tournament, to be held in New Orleans in Spring of 2007. The tournament will benefit the non-profit Shriners Hospitals for Children network, an organization that provides medical services free of charge to children nationwide.
Mr. Duncan continued, ”As we begin planning next yearâ€™s event, we are looking forward to the positive impact it will have on not only the charity it will directly benefit, but also on the entire city of New Orleans as it begins to recover from the hurricanes of 2005.” Pre-registration for the event will be available at the Ping! Zine booth during HostingCon. More details on the Charity tournament will be announced in the coming months.
