Well, first off I am not alone this year as far as management :P
We also have a camerateam on site and we will be aired on tv this year ( if production is approved, and it will be!), a players tent with refreshments for players with beers & RED BULL!, a professional speaker.
That is a good start, we are working hard to make this the beast of longdrive events in Europe this year!
Also, the format is different this year!
the schedule is as follows:
Saturday 1 August:
08.30- 11.30 Qualifyer, all must qualify except last years winners.
12.00- whatever.. preliminary rounds Following number of players make it into sunday finals: 8 in Open, 4 in Senior, 4 in Ladies, 2 in superseniors and 2 in amateurdivision.
Sunday 2 August
09.00 Sponsors Scramble, lunch and pricegiving. Players who made it to the finals have to participate if selected.
16.00 The final!

For those who miss making it into the finals, we will arrange a golftournament of sorts for you to play in the morning prior to the finals!

Ciao, JT
OBS! above might change slightly..

I'll be there. Let's dance!

About the qualifying, does it determine the hitting order (or groups) for the main draw? Will there be groups or is it a straight shoot out?
