With a little less then 3 weeks to go I figure it's about time to get this bumped up. I'll post a few more details in the next few weeks, but can say for now that if this heat spell doesn't break I will most likely switch it up to both rounds from the red tees. Going with the shorter tees we should be able to have everyone off the course by 2:30 or so. We can still mix up a few holes with the longer pin placements though. I'll just have to watch the weather once it gets closer and go from there.

A few more quick notes on this event.

I believe the RCF is running an event this same weekend, so I'm not expecting a full field. You never know though. If you give me a heads up that you will be there I will get you down.

Please don't expect huge payouts for this event. I charge $20 and it includes everything. There is no extra cost for CTP's, lunch, drinks, etc. Don't get me wrong, there will still be some good payouts. Just keep in mind that the payouts will be different for an event that includes everything for $20 and other events where there are extra charges for everything.

There will be CTP's on every hole. Half will be cash and the other half will be donated merchandise.

There is an ace pool for SCCDGC members which I believe starts at $61.

I've ordered the plaques for the amateur flights. Top 3 in each of those divisions will receive a full color plaque. I'll post a pic of them once they come in.

Last, but not least there will be a free keg courtesy of North American Breweries! With the field capped at 72 there should be plenty for everyone.

Just saw the weather forecast and they are calling for 85 degrees with no rain on Saturday. Are you kidding me???!!! After the scorching temps we've been having this will certainly be a welcome relief.

With that weather forecast we will definitely be playing the white tees the first round.

I'll be talking with Walls at league on Tuesday to get the pin placements determined. He should have everything moved by Wednesday.

I did most of the shopping for food today and assuming we have a full field I've got it under $2.50 right now. That will include your lunch, soda, water, lemonade and BEER! I do have to plan for a full field, so if we don't have that the price per person will be a bit higher. It should definitely end up being under $3 per person though...can't beat that. This is all included in your entry fee.

I will open up a division for ladies and/or juniors with a 3 person minimum. The demand just usually isn't there for it though.

If I can think of anything else I'll be sure to post it.

Starting to get a few pre-registrations in. Dave Murray just called the weather for Saturday "spectacular"! I still don't expect a full field (you never know), but will post the list of registrations if it might be close. Please keep the names coming in to help me out.

Thanks. I'm really looking forward to playing both sets of teepads. Some of the holes really change.

So I wonder if any of the JB homies are gonna be there Saturday. Quail Ridge is not that much tougher than JB, so it shouldn't be too intimidating
