The 21st Annual Eagle Alliance Hosted Crypto Cup Golf Tournament benefiting the NCF will take place on Thursday, October 20, 2022 at Compass Pointe Golf Course in Pasadena, MD. Check-in will begin at 8am EDT and the tournament will begin at 9am with a Captain's Choice/Shotgun start. Lunch and awards after play ends. The event will conclude after the awards banquet.

We are excited about getting out on the course together again for some friendly competition for a great cause. The tournament will include an awards banquet (luncheon) and raffle. Raffle tickets will be available at the event only. We will also have the traditional Spy Hole FUNdraiser!

This year we will have a new competition sponsored by BackSwing Golf Events - "Beat the Pro on a Par 3." Who will get closer to the pin - you or Stephanie Bosdosh, a pro golfer? BackSwing will also host a separate raffle at their contest hole - featuring a fantastic golf prize.

Sponsorships and individual player tickets are available to purchase here via the NCF website. Or checks can be made out to the National Cryptologic Foundation and mailed to: Eagle Alliance, 2711 Technology Drive, Annapolis Junction, MD 20701 Attn: Karen Rios.
