The Indian Institute of Management Shillong recently launched the mascot and Web site for the seventh edition of the Golf Cup.

The mascot named ‘Pappy, the Golfer’ was inaugurated by Mukul Sangma, the Chief Minister of Meghalaya, at the IIM campus. Pappy has been strategically chosen to represent the North-East and has been designed to introduce people to the legacy values of Meghalaya. The previous season’s mascot named Bamby, represented a bamboo and had an integral connection with the North-East as it represented one of the major local crops exported to the rest of India.

The Web site (iims-golfcup.in) provides details about past editions of the Golf Cup and also features information on local attractions in and around Shillong for corporates and other guests who will be visiting for Golf Cup Season 7. The Web site also has a section dedicated to the annual B-School fest of IIM Shillong Khlur-Thma, a pre-event to the Golf Cup.

This year IIM Shillong is hosting the third season of Khlur-Thma with the theme of ‘Strike to survive’. In addition to Khlur-Thma, the institute is also organising a business conclave, ‘Udaan -Giving wings to tomorrow’ and the theme of the conclave will be ‘The way forward: transforming opportunities into reality’.

The Golf Cup will be organised on October 11-12. It is a flagship event of IIM Shillong and has grown bigger over the years with more than 40 top corporates participating in it.
