This weekend, the Minneapolis Convention Center will play host to the Midwest’s most prestigious consumer golf show. Dozens of golf industry exhibitors will present the latest in golf equipment, gadgets, fashion, and getaways at the Venture Bank 2015 Minnesota Golf Show presented by 1500 ESPN Twin Cities. Along with the exhibits, the event will include attractions such as: free golf lessons, an indoor driving range, a $100,000 long putt challenge and much more. The InSports Foundation is excited to announce that we will have a booth showcasing information about our annual charity golf tournament as well as an autograph signing from former Vikings linebacker, Matt Blair on Saturday from 11:30-1:00pm
Drafted in the second round of the 1974 draft by the Vikings, Blair quickly became one of the top linebackers in the NFC. Blair appeared in six consecutive Pro Bowls (1977-1982), was named All-Pro in 1980, and all-NFC in 1978. Blair was also known for his special teams play, as he is 3rd in the NFL with 20 blocked kicks. Blairs career lasted 11 years (1974-1985) with two super bowl appearances (1974, 1976).
Along with Blair signing autographs, there will be a silent auction and raffle items available at the InSports booth.
