JT - I'm not so sure that it will matter much. I haven't seen the Pickard league crew, but knowing that course I'd think they'd be some chuckers, not the rec crowd like we're going for here.

We're not aiming for the Intermediate crowd, we're aiming for below, for exposure, for peopel who don't play (this being so new to the city). I will check with The park dept tohugh to see if they want to switch.

OJenson, call Dan @ the City Park Dept @ 981-9206 & ask. They will be signing up for this like any other city sponsored activity - like soccer & baseball, etc.

ON Next Thursday, April 3, forms go in the Norwalk newspaper to sign up for the league...

Registration will Begin on Monday, April 7. (forms can be turned in)

Not sure when registration ends, but I bet it's on the form.

Jason - I haven't made up my mind on this. It's more to do with the time than anything else. Even living where I do it may be pushing it to get home, feed the pets, change and get to the tee in time. Right now I'm leaning towards participating, mostly to support the course and those that built it.

Awesome! It's coming down to the wire, and we had 9 people sign up! I think that's a pretty decent start. I hope people are able to get some enjoyment, and hopefully improve their scores as the weeks go by, too!

Jason - I haven't signed up yet - it looks like I missed the deadline - can I sign up on the first night of play?
