The Reader's Cup

New this year, we are offering The Reader's Cup Summer Reading Program.  The summer reading program is to encourage all our participants to continue reading throughout the summer.  

Participants playing The Reader's Cup Game must read across all five of our programming locations. Begin your reading game at The Children's Course, travel through Heron Lakes, play 18-holes at Glendoveer, venture south to the OGA and finish the game at RiverRidge.  When a hole is complete, you will have a parent or guardian initial the hole. 

The Reader's Cup is free to all participants but they must be registered in order to qualify for the final prize.  Click on the link below to register for The Reader's Cup and print off your game board.
