Launch and World Premier!

Today we officially launched the project publically!

After the Men's Golf team was lauded by President Dianne Harrison for their National Championship and Athletic Director Vince Otoupal kicked off the fundraiser, we had the DJ spin a CD of the latest mix of Birdie in the Hole from producer Steven Mann.

We also handed our commemorative bookmarks designed by Kevin Garcia that included Dylan Jackson's score card on one side. It was not lost on any of us that when Dylan autographed bookmarks that he was ... signing his scorecard!

The bookmarks included the web address CSUMB.EDU/birdie that leads to a page on the Otter Athletics web site, put up by Mindy Mills with assistance from Kevin Gilmore. There people could find out about the ability to pre-order a copy of the CD and get their name on the CD package as a way to say thanks.

Also on hand was drummer Marvin Panganiban, who got to meet the team, coach and Assistant Athletic Director Kirby Garry.
