Lunch will be served following golf and sporting clays at the Bridgeport Country Club.  There will be skill prizes for the golfers and shooters and door prizes galore for all to win!   Please know this IOGA event will be following all applicable COVID-19 rules, including social distancing and the wearing of masks, according to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and executive orders from Governor Jim Justice.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, West Virginia University finds itself without an opponent on September 19 because the Big 10 Conference is not allowing non-conference games. At this time, there will be no football game or tailgate party this year.
