Swing into Spring!

Portland’s Riverside Golf Course opens tomorrow
PORTLAND, Maine – Tomorrow, the City of Portland’s Riverside Golf Course will open to the public for 2011. Designed by legendary architect Geoffrey Cornish, the course has a reputation as being both player friendly and one of Southern Maine’s more challenging layouts. Rolling hills and a traditional beauty give the Riverside golfer an opportunity to enjoy open space in the city. With a number of challenges including sand, bogs, trees, golfers can test either their abilities at either the 6,406-yard 9-hole North Course or the adjacent South Course, a 9-hole layout over 2,900 yards.

SEMI PRO FOOTBALL RETURNS TO MAINE

PORTLAND - Saturday will be the first public workout session for Maine's newest semi-professional
football team, the Maine Sabers.

For those who follow Maine football, the Maine Sabers is a familiar moniker. From 1991 through 1993,
the Sabers were Maine's dominant semi-professional football team.

In January, the Maine Sabers were officially admitted into the Eastern Football League, the oldest semi-
professional league in the nation, along with 15 other teams. The team is based in Portland and will
play at nearby fields such as Portland's Fitzpatrick Stadium or Scarborough High School's stadium. The
team's 2011 schedule has yet to be finalized but the season will run from late June through September.

The team was organized by Stephen Goodrich, a former administrator with the original Sabers and
Jason McLeod, Windham High School football team's offensive coordinator.
