Golf
Wednesday, May 16, 7:30 a.m.
Sponsored by RTI
Meet at 7:00 a.m. in the hotel lobby.

The AAPOR Annual Golf Outing will be held on Wednesday, May 16, at CommonGround Golf Course with tee times starting at 7:30 a.m. The cost is $75 per golfer (club rental is extra).  From the raw beginner to the most skilled player, CommonGround Golf Course has been designed to maximize the enjoyment of the game for all AAPOR attendees.  Although located just a few miles from the Conference hotel, the urban sprawl surrounding the course is unnoticeable, and the breathtaking views of the majestic front range of Colorado are a sight to behold.  With a commitment to tradition and excellence, Tom Doak and Renaissance Golf Design have created a masterpiece for the ages that is worthy of the level of golf that AAPOR exhibits—but, most importantly, fun to play.  If you love to play golf or just love to have a “good walk spoiled” in the mountain air, make plans this year to arrive early enough to play a round before the AAPOR Annual Conference begins.
 
Fun Run/Walk
Friday, May 18, 7:00 a.m.
The run/walk will depart from the main entrance of the

AAPOR’s Fun Run/Walk will be held bright and early on Friday morning, May 18. The 2-mile Run/Walk will take place on the picturesque paths in Civic Center Park. If you would like to enter into some competitive early morning exercise, or simply enjoy the morning air and the lovely grounds of the State Capital, this is just right for you! All participants will receive bottled water. Register for the Fun Run/Walk online or at the Onsite Registration Desk. Conference volunteers will be available on Saturday morning to guide participants to the starting line. A waiver must be signed on site to participate. Awards will be given to the top runners and those record-breaking walkers.
