I agree. The Bushwhacker format runs much better when people care about being there. When you get a bunch of players who are new to the whole regular play thing it can create big problems with people not being there and/or not letting their partner know what’s going on. Subs can be had if someone or anyone knows that you need one. Especially near the end of the season when the league has had a chance to pickup a handful of subs and regular players can’t plan that far ahead.
Not to sell the Bushwhacker format or anything (hint hint) the monies are as follows.
$50 to get in and $1 a week for the ace fund if you wish to play. Subs pay $3.00 per week + $10 if they want to participate in Ace fund (+$1 per week) and bag tags.
Automatic ace fund if you are “In “ league, a case of beer of your choice (nothing crazy) on ice delivered to you the following week to do with as you please.
½ the monies (Cash) are for the 1st, 2nd , 3rd place teams, maybe 4th 5th etc. if there are a lot of teams.
The other ½ of the monies are for a BIG bring nothing but yourself and your significant other or friend PARTY! All other league expenditures will be taken out of this fund. Scorecards, bag tags, trophies, Ace beer, Other prizes like MVP, Best average, Most Improved, Stumbles award, (who likes to drink the most), Smokey award (figure that one out amongst yourselves) etc.
Everybody's got to believe in something. I believe I'll have another beer.
