You may have already seen the flyers up around town, but for some reason I forgot to get it posted on the forums until now...
A few changes have been made to the format. First and foremost, we are going with a 27-Hole 1-Round format. This will allow us to max out at 135 people instead of 90. Last year we had to turn some people away, and that just isn't cool!
The 1-Round format allows us to start an hour later and we should definitely finish with plenty of light this time around. I am sure the tournament staff and parks department will be a lot happier about that!
Since we are only playing 1 round, we are going to allow everybody to play with whomever they would like to. All you need to do is set up your playing partners ahead of time and let us know when you sign in. We will have 1 dedicated tournament volunteer taking care of all of the pairings on the leaderboard, so just poke him in the ribs a little bit if you notice that they aren't getting it right!
The extra 9 holes will be spread out throughout the normal course and the Blackhawk Shelter area (ala Shanty Open). We might even throw in some fun basket positions and added OB (ala Valentine Massacre). It should prove to be a really fun and challenging course to play!
There are going to be a slew of CTPs to give away. For an additional $5, there will be 4 CASH CTPs and up to a dozen other CTPs...including a TURKEY! In actuality, it will be a gift certificate for the grocery store, but who is counting! Everyone likes to pick their own turkey out, right?!
Schlafly is generously donating a couple of kegs of their delicious product to the event. Since this is a 1-Round event, we will try to get the beer spread out so that everyone can enjoy some during the round (I am thinking that a beverage station in between 8 and 12s teepad should work). There will also be soft drinks and water available for those that don't partake.
We are really hoping to put on a fun, yet competitive, event. I hope to see you all there!
