Our club - The Local 101 DG Union - is going to run a tournament where everyone plays california style, in Michigan in January. TDs will be Daemon and Josh Romine. The date for this tournament is January 12th at Hudson Mills. We'll see how it goes as we've never tried this format before. We're going to do 18 holes the 1st round and 9 holes the 2nd round. We can do just 9 holes because Hudson Mills has two courses which allows us to have up to 72 players. I would be surprised if we got more then 50 though. Ace pool will be $5 so I'm sure lots of people will be using that 2nd drive to try and cash in on the large ace pool. This is another reason we are limiting the 2nd round to 9 holes. We are in the shortest days of the year right now in Michigan, sunset being around 5pm.
Anyways, to the pro purse we're looking to add some cash. Local 101 will put up at least $100 and we're asking for more. To be a sponsor for Local 101 please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is going to be an Ice Bowl so we're asking everyone to bring 5 non-perishables for $5 off entry fee. Also an additional 3 non-perishables for the free* CHILI COOKOFF at lunch.
I will be posting soon about our plans for Loco at the Mills 2008. The date is set for May 3rd (as close as we could get to Cinco de Mayo. We have got some crazy ideas for sure. Something about lots of added cash and high AM entry fees. Pros hopefully will pay about half of what the AMs will. Is this the best way to run things? Well I don't know but at least we will get a huge pro field. Last year we had 132 players and this year we want more.
