Foster Scramble

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009
I have to admit I was thoroughly questioning my decision to participate in the Annual Foster Golf Scramble 2009 when at about Foster Scramble8:15pm the evening prior to the event, a torrential downpour decided to hit Seattle. I moved to Seattle from San Diego back in August and I can honestly say that it was the hardest rain since my return to the Pacific Northwest. Thus, as I was sipping on a lovely cappuccino inside the warm walls of my favorite coffeehouse, I found myself dreading the cold, wet morning that was inevitably going to follow…

The Annual Foster Golf Scramble was held at Washington National Golf Club located in Auburn, WA and is the official Huskies golf course. As the groggy MBA’s started trickling in, the sun emerged and it was an absolutely stunning day for a round of golf. The views on the course were beautiful and the grounds well-manicured, which made for a wonderful experience with my fellow Evening MBA teammates.
The event was a success, with everyone really enjoying themselves and the opportunity to spend a Saturday morning getting to know each other outside the classroom walls. I highly recommend participating in future events if at all possible!

Foster goes to Omaha

Warren BuffetThe Foster MBA Program has been invited back to Omaha, Nebraska to have lunch with Warren Buffett for the second year in a row. Not surprisingly, this is a popular opportunity amongst MBA-ers so Administration chooses the lucky 27 students through a lottery system. After trying for a spot last year and being disappointed with the results, I received notice last week that I’m on the list this year! Watch for a follow-up post and photos after the trip in February!

Omaha here we come.
