2nd Annual Media Challenge Golf Event A Success

Posted by Mike Wobschall on May 28, 2010 – 11:49 am

Kudos to Vikings Director of Public Relations Bob Hagan and his PR staff for another successful media challenge golf tournament. This year’s event was the 2nd annual and once again served as a precursor to the Vikings Children’s Fund Golf Tournament.

This year’s media challenge was in a scramble format and featured 14 teams. There was a 3-way tie for 1st place, and one of the teams was the team. We finished 4 under par after the 9-hole event and tied with the team from KFAN 1130 AM and KARE 11.

The VCF tournament followed immediately after the media challenge and that event, headed up by VCF Director Patrick Leopold, was also another success. We’ll have more from the VCF tournament, including video highlights, later this week and into next week.

No On-Field Work Friday; OTAs To Resume Next Week

Posted by Mike Wobschall on May 28, 2010 – 6:34 am

The Vikings wrapped up their 2nd week of OTAs on Thursday morning with a 90-minute workout and then several players and coaches joined in on the fun of the organization’s annual golf tournament. There will be no on-field work Friday or Monday but the team will return to the field on Tuesday.

The Vikings are scheduled to hold 4 more OTAs next weekend, although the OTA schedule is always subject to adjustment and change.

With Monday being Memorial Day, we’ll suspend our weekly Monday Morning Mailbag feature to Tuesday morning. So be sure to submit your comments/questions by emailing me at
