The Portage Terriers are pleased to announce that their annual golf tournament will be renamed to the “Geno Romanow Memorial Terrier Golf Tournament.” The change is in memory of long-time trainer and equipment manager Geno Romanow who passed away on May 8th, 2020.
“Geno not only left a lasting legacy with the Portage Terriers organization but was also very closely connected to the golfing community through his work at the golf course,” says Terrier president David Koroscil. “It seemed very fitting to honour his memory by naming the Terriers golf tournament, The Geno Romanow Memorial Terrier Golf Tournament.”
The tournament will be held at the Portage Golf Club Sunday September 13th, 2020. It will remain a “par 3” format with prizes to be won on every hole. The Terrier players will be in attendance helping around the course. There will be a Boston Pizza lunch at the club house before the round begins and supper to follow.
“I am thrilled with the name change as my dad loved working at the golf course and of course his Terriers,” says Lisa Romanow (Geno’s daughter). “To continue his legacy in this way is important to our family. We hope that alumni from years past and those that loved my dad donate and sign up for it. Come out and celebrate Geno and his life. My mom, brother and I will be there.”
All are welcome and are encouraged to come and share their memories of Geno. It is $100 per golfer and the money will be going to support the Terriers organization. To register, email marketing director Cody Buhler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
