Ken Smith Memorial Scramble Returns to Canyon Creek in May
Annual golf tournament to raise money for scholarships for North Texas referees
The Ken Smith Memorial Scramble returns May 14, 2013, to the Canyon Creek Country Club in Richardson. The Scramble, held each spring, is intended to provide the necessary resources to fully fund the Ken Smith Memorial Scholarship program.
Ken was a great friend to the referee community, was always there to help a developing young referee and enjoyed playing golf when time allowed. After passing in 2008, the scramble and scholarship were renamed in his honor.
The available funds for scholarships are in direct proportion to the success of the scramble. Although soccer players generally have scholarship opportunities from colleges, playing associations and clubs, this is one of the few opportunities specifically intended for the distribution of scholarships to the soccer official.
Although previous events have been very successful, we are receiving may more requests for assistance than there are funds available. It is with this in mind that we are asking for your help to ensure the success of future scrambles, resulting in the enhanced success of the scholarship program.
