How to Register for the 2019 Pioneer Challenge?

There is a tab directly below the front page picture. Find the tab that says “2019 Event Registration” and click on that tab. If you are using your mobile phone for registration you will need to click on “Menu”and this will make all the tabs visible. The event registration tab will take you directly to that page. You will have to manually add all the items ie sponsorships, or donations you have selected and fill in the total at the bottom of the page where it asks for the total. When you press the “Submit” button you will again have to input the total that you just indicated on the registration page. This is Marietta College’s secure donation page. We have integrated 3 separate entities this year, a new website, a separate registration system, and the college donation processor so it’s not a perfect system, but we will continue to streamline the system for next year to make it even easier. If you have any questions either send an email to or call at 440-862-1762 and we’ll get you on the right track! Thank you for your support of our event and more importantly the student athletes who benefit from your generous donation!

Welcome Members and Visitors

Welcome to the Pioneer Challenge On-line Community website! As the movie Frankenstein proclaims “It’s Alive!” The Pioneer Challenge event has its very own website! We can’t begin to share with you the time and energy required in putting this website and registration system into place. For this year, it’s a collaboration of 3 different systems, so it’s not perfect by any means, and excuse the manual calculation requIred when adding up your donation.  But we know you can do it… you’ve got a degree from Marietta College? Please note that this website is our starting point. Figuratively speaking we’ve been handed the keys to a supercharged dragster immediately upon receiving our learner’s permit! We’re not quite ready for that and you probably aren’t either? As time allows, we will unveil different aspects and levels of the Pioneer Challenge website that we think you’ll find appealing and engaging. But not today!

If you’re reading this note, you’ve either attended or are interested in attending the 7th Annual Pioneer Challenge event. We think you’ll enjoy the 2-day event that continues to bring Marietta College alumni and supporters from all over the nation! Its primary purpose is to raise money for MC athletic programs, scholastic scholarships and the annual MC fundraising campaign. You determine where you’d like your donations to be applied and what team you’ll be representing in hopes of winning the Golden Musket award. This award is the culmination of the two days’ activities, and includes total finances raised and participants attending. But people aren’t flying in from all over the country just to play Whispering Pines golf course and make a donation to MC! This is a mini reunion located outside of Marietta. The MC coaches, administrators and staff also have an opportunity to “get out of town” and enjoy themselves in rural Northwest, PA. We try to change enough aspects of the event every year to keep it fresh and leaving you with a desire to come back and experience it again next year! We’re excited that you will be joining us this June 20th and 21st in Meadville, PA. Please browse the various pages describing the event as time allows…and we’ll plan to see you soon!
