Welcome, dearest Nation citizens, to the summer announcement that you’ve all been waiting for! This morning, I am thrilled to announce the fifth annual Oilersnation Open which will be held at the Millwoods Golf Club on September 1st in support of the Jason Gregor Foundation, and you’re all invited to join us.
If there is one day on earth that I love the most, it’s that fine morning in late summer when we take over a golf course and compete in the Oilersnation Open. When we first started doing these tournaments, we didn’t really know what they could be or what the turnout would look like, but over the years, we’ve learned that there is nothing better than taking a few hacks in the sun with your fellow Nation Citizens. From my perspective, the ONO is the event I most look forward to on our calendar and I cannot stress enough how much you should consider joining us. Whether you can golf or not doesn’t matter, the point of this tourney is to get everyone together for a day we’ll never forget while also raising money for charity in the process.
If you’ve made it this far in the article I can already tell that you’re interested — you should be because it’s an absolute blast — but I do want to mention that space is limited, meaning that if you wait to submit your team then you’ll likely miss out. This tournament sells out every year, and if you’re a procrastinator like I am then I’d strongly recommend that you pretend the tournament is actually happening tomorrow so that you can muster up the motivation needed to round up your buddies and get your spot locked in.

Shut up and give me the details!

At this point, I’m sure you’ve had enough of my rambling about why you should be at this golf tournament so I’ll just shut my mouth and give you the details.
When – September 1st, 2023 (Friday) with a 9 AM start
Where – Millwoods Golf Course
How much – $1000/team
Teams – Groups of Four (4)

After you wrap up your round, a banquet will be held in the clubhouse where we’ll all enjoy a dinner together to make sure that everyone is properly fuelled up for the rest of the weekend. Not only will you be eating a delicious meal, but we’ll be giving away a ton of prizes at dinner to supplement the cool giveaways that will be happening on the course throughout the day.

The Gregor Foundation

If you’re looking for even more reasons to join us, a portion of all proceeds from your ticket purchase will be donated directly to a local charity. This time around we’ve partnered up with the Gregor Foundation to make sure that our kids are at their most handsome. What is the Gregor Foundation?
As always, a portion of all proceeds from your ticket purchase will be donated directly to a local charity. And just as we do every year, we’ve partnered with the Gregor Foundation to raise some cash and ensure that our kids are at their most handsome on their big day. So what is the Gregor Foundation?
The Gregor Foundation was started in 2014 by Jason and Traci Gregor after seeing a need to help. The Foundation provides a new suit for graduation complete with shirt, tie, shoes and socks to less fortunate high school students in Edmonton and area. We work closely with high school counsellors who identify and qualify the students who are in need.
High school can be a challenging time for any young person, but for those students whose families are experiencing severe financial difficulties, simply getting the basic necessities to enable them to attend their own graduation can be very difficult, if not impossible. High school students’ needs often go unnoticed in the community as these students try to blend in and are very private regarding their financial situation. These young men are often forgotten when it comes to receiving much-needed assistance.
“Gregor’s Grads” was formed to fill this gap and provide a helping hand for these deserving students. We believe that by providing financially-challenged students with a sense of normalcy and enabling them to participate in graduation will foster pride, self-esteem and allow them to move forward to the next phase in their lives with wonderful memories and a new suit they can call their own.
Mr. Derks has been a major partner since day one. Their clothing experts fit and tailor all the suits so the boys look great. Mr. Derks uses their connections in the clothing industry so we can fit each grad with their new ensemble for an average of $250.00.
