Because two wrongs don’t make a right but three rights make a left (or something), Lebowski Fest co-founder Will Russell is staging yet another event commemorating a cult comedy classic. Entertainment Weekly reports that next summer Russell and a whole slew of Kenny Loggins fans will descend on a Lousville golf course for Caddyshack Fest, a celebration of the 1980 golf comedy featuring career-high performances from Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield, and the late, great Ted Knight.

“Bowling really ties Lebowski Fest together. It’s great to have an activity. I was like, ‘What’s another movie that has an activity? Caddyshack!’ It’s a fucking great movie. It’s hilarious. It’s so quotable, just like Lebowski,” Russell told EW.

He says there will be golf cart races, a dance party, and costume contests, the latter of which will no doubt be won by whoever fills their fedora with a bowl of soup. A portion of the proceeds, he adds, will benefit the Everything Will Be OK Project, a mental health non-profit.

Lebowski Fest has seen the film’s Jeff Bridges make an appearance, and Russell’s holding out hope that Murray might briefly revive the mumbling Carl Spackler for the festival, calling him “our dream guest.” Stay tuned for news on that development and more over at the event’s Facebook page.
