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!
