June 1st is the return of the Triangle Media Ryder Cup featuring Team Internet and Team Traditional.

The battle lines have been drawn. On one side, the upstart bloggers, podcasters, and online renegades of Team Internet. On the other, the stalwart newspaper, radio, and tv men of Team Traditional. For the second straight year, these rival factions will be meeting in the Triangle Media Ryder Cup! Team Traditional won the Cup last year (check out the results here), and now Team Internet is out for revenge.

Last year Shane Ryan and Ben Swain decided to start an annual Triangle Ryder Media Cup Golf Tournament to benefit a charity, The Communities in Schools Charity supporting Durham County Schools.  

This year, Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q is sponsoring the golf tournament and the charity will remain the Communities in Schools supporting both Wake County and Durham County Schools.

Two teams of ten will go head to head for a chance to be named 2013 Ryder Cup Champs in this charity golf tournament.

You can follow the action on Twitter @MediaRyderCup.

Last year, $662.34 was raised for Durham Community in Schools program. This year, we'll be splitting the donations between CIS-Durham and CIS-Wake and expect to exceed $3,000 in donations.

We are grateful to support the educational community in which we serve.  Help us reach our fundraising goal by donating as little as $10.  To learn more about the charity, click here.  If you value education, any amount donated is very much appreciated.  Click here to donate

Any Controversy Brewing?

Well, maybe just a little rivalry but wouldn’t that just make it more interesting?   We'd love to have you out on the course to watch! Again, we play on Friday, June 1, starting at 9:30 am. We estimate that the final round will finish between 4 and 5 pm. And even if you can't, we appreciate any support you can give through Communities in Schools. Every little bit helps!
