Thanks to all those that pre-regged with me in the Quad Cities! Registrations are starting to roll in. I have an announcement to make with regards to the C-Pool. This decison was based on two things - not being able to use Ewing this year, and just the sheer distance between Pickard and Walnut Ridge.

After a lot of thought, Joe and I decided to have the C pool only play 3 rounds this year. The past couple years it has taken too long for that pool to get in Pickard and Ewing (GV this year) and then have to come all the way out north to Walnut for awards and the finals. It's just too much driving to ask that many players to do. So for the C pool this year, we're going to Challenge you this year at Big Creek a little bit more! You had to play the short pads out there the last several years, not this year.

So, to summarize, the C pool will play 2 rounds Saturday - Big Creek long tee pads, Walnut Ridge short pads, and then Sunday one round from the longs at Grandview. This will allow plenty of time for those folks to get out to Walnut and enjoy some of the pros final round and the finals. If it really upsets you that you won't get to play Pickard this year - play advanced. It's that simple. Please note also, that we will put the Advanced Women in the B pool this year so there's that option for the girls as well.

The C-Pool is the following divisions - Intermediate, Advanced Grandmaster, Intermediate Women. If you signed up for the Intermediate division and want to change to advanced due to this, let me know. No big deal at all.

The website will be updated with this information this week!

Alright people,

Its time to bring everyone up to speed on some great things going on with this year's challenge. Sponsorship is going well:

1. Welcome back G&L Clothing as our title sponsor once again!
2. Felix & Oscars is back with generous support and hosting the players party with great food and good times.
3. Pro-Flight Discs has increased its contribution in both cash and prizes in addition to hosting Dubs By The Lake and the priceless efforts Shane contributes to the club and the event.
4. Area Wal-Mart stores have combined once again for a generous cash contribution.
5. Commonwealth Electric has also provided a cash sponsorship again.
6. Welcome back to the Challenge our Trophy sponsor First Class Credit Union.
7. Welcome A to Z Bail Bonds as our Final Nine Skins Match sponsor. This year's skins will have a $1000 payout!!
8. At this point we are up to roughly $600 in hole sponsorships.
9. There are many other sponsors contributing to the player packs and refreshments.

TOTAL: $6,000 + ADDED CASH to the event not including $1,000 for Skins. Add it all together and we are looking at an event with $10,000 in additional cash and prizes.

I hope that alleviates any hesitation you have to register and come out again this year.

Other incentives:
1. Big shout out to Dave and all of the volunteers who have been working hard to keep the courses clean and recover from the winter storm damages. Thank You all!
2. G&L is putting together some more killer prize packages to be given away again this year.
3. One lucky winner will take home a brand new Discraft Chainstar basket from the player's party.
4. If history holds true, we will get to see some of the world's top players enjoy our courses side by side with some of our favorite local pros.
5. With the extra money and some exciting stories that have taken place over the last couple years, the Skins Finale is shaping up to be our best yet.

Don't forget the deal rate at Econo Lodge on Merle Hay Road as posted on the Challenge web site. The price is good and the location is good as well.

This will be one to remember for sure. See you all there!

P.S. Any of you that have offered to sponsor a hole or still wish to do so, will need to get the payment and logo (if applicable) to myself or Jay Greenwood by May 10th. The person making the signs is limited on time and I want him to have plenty of notice. Sponsorships can be accepted after that but cannot be guaranteed sign completion.

When I talked to him at Bike World he was going to send me the $25 and email me an image for his sign. Haven't heard from him since.
