Guys, this is a legitimate opportunity to have a high quality event at a very reasonable entry fee....especially in an era where the older divisions don't have many, if any, opportunities to compete for something other than pride. Sam has asked that you send your entry fee by May 1 so that he can determine if the entries are enough to make this feasible.

Don't wait until after May 1, because I think Sam is serious about making the final determination based on paid entries as of that date. This is always a fun place to compete, and it is relatively easy to reach from anywhere in the midwest by car.

Sadly this is on the same weekend we always have and hold the COLD SHOOTOUT up here in Ontario and I wont be able to head south with you all.
    COLDSHOOTOUT is the ONTARIO(eastern Canada) Remax districts and there is also going to be a CA$h event(Senior) for us old guys as well!!  Sorry it's a conflict weekend for me--or id have most likely headed south --so few opportunities now to hit in a competitive field and event with way things have been changed.    I hope you get a FULL FIELD and the event is a great success for all involved!

Hey Sam,
My check is in the mail. Please put me in both the GC and the Legends divisions.
McCurdy is correct. Sam has been hosting successful long drive events for "old guys" for several years. Can't wait till June!
