I'm starting to get the ball rolling on the next iteration of the 3 Man Throwdown Against MS. After looking at tournament calendars I'm shooting for 2 rounds of 18 on Sunday, July 15. At the moment it will be held at Silver Lake Park in Highland again. There will be a course installed in the near future in Lebanon, IL a few minutes behind my house, but it is up in the air still if it will be a 9 or 18 hole course. If 18 holes are in ground by then I will host it there instead.
We had 102 players show up in October, only 6 short from having 6somes on every hole. Instead of adding a bunch of temporary holes and ending up playing 2 rounds of 27 holes in the July heat I have decided to cap the field at 108 players, or 36 teams of 3. If you want to ensure that you get in, I highly suggest paying in advance. I'll post as we get closer how to get your teams registered and paid up...this will also give me some more flexibility in covering costs involved with running the event.
Entry will be $20 per person which includes a tournament stamped disc and lunch between rounds. I'm working on putting together some prizes for CTP holes, longest putt holes, ring of fire prizes, and an optional raffle. If you have any items (DG related or not) that you'd like to donate as prizes I will graciously accept them. There will also be an optional ace fund, as 2 aces were hit last year.
After all operating costs have been covered, the proceeds will be donated to the Gateway chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. I recently found out that my employer will match charitable donations up to $2500, so after it's all said and done we should have a pretty sizable donation to make.
Keep an eye out on the thread, more details will be shared as they become more concrete. If you came out and played last year I hope you show up again, if you didn't get a chance to play I urge you to come check it out.
