Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail – Mark Twain once said “Golf is a good walk spoiled.”  Mr. Twain obviously never played a round on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at the Shoals.  RTJ at The Shoals is home to two 18-hole championship courses and lies between the Wheeler and Wilson dams on the Tennessee River.  Both courses, the Fighting Joe and The Schoolmaster, will test our winner’s golf knowledge and prowess as they tee off with 3 of their closest friends or rivals!  This is one prize that is truly up to par! 

Ballroom Dance Lessons – Now you can dance with the stars, or maybe just your significant other!  This is your chance to learn how to “cut a rug” from one of the best in the area.  Suzy Spalding-Robbins has been teaching dance at UNA for 15 years and now she’s offering her services to you!  One lucky winner will get $200 worth of ballroom dance lessons in either private or group classes.  So Cha Cha try to win this if you’re into moving your feet! 

Me Spa – As they say at Me Spa…It’s all about you!  And this is one prize that you don’t have to worry about sharing.  One lucky winner will be treated to a free one hour massage and an all about “Me” facial.  The all about “Me” facial includes European style cleansing, exfoliation with steam, 20 minute facial massage, vacuum, extractions and a mask!  Let the staff at Me Spa use their magic hands to take your stress away because at Me Spa, It’s all about you! 

UNA Continuing Studies and outreach Class - Thomas Huxley once said; “Try to learn something about everything and everything about something.”  Well, here’s your chance.   Sheila Sisson is offering one lucky winner the gift of knowledge, in the form of the class, “History of the Shoals” through the University’s Office of Continuing Studies and Outreach.  This is your chance to gain knowledge about the place you call home, and as they say Knowledge is Power!
