Show Some Love During the 2018 NIH Combined Federal Campaign

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) ORS/ORF Basketball Shootout

The ORS/ORF will host the 3rd Annual CFC Basketball Shootout Tournament on Tuesday, November 13th at 1:30pm.  The tournament will take place on the basketball court outside the Lipsett Auditorium in Bldg. 10.  All are welcome to participate.  Sign up by emailing Chris Shirley no later than November 9th.   All participants should plan to arrive by 1:15pm.  The Tournament’s objective is to be the “last person standing” when all three rounds of the competition are completed.  The winner will receive the use of the ORS or ORF Director’s parking spot for a week.  The three rounds of competition will include a mix of free throw, lay-up, and three pointer shots, with each of the three phases resulting in eliminations.  The final round will be a game of PIG, played similarly to the game of HORSE.  For more info on the contest, contact Chris Shirley.  In the event of rain or heavy winds, a make-up time is scheduled for 1:30pm on November 20th.
