Yes, all divisions will be playing from the blues. With only 64 players, there will be two unused tees to allow for any slight backup. Plus the most difficult hole from the blues (15) is being played from the whites so that will help as well. Also eliminates the need for a spotter.

Should run pretty smoothly, provided we fill up the field.

4 weeks until tourney day! Don't wait to sign up! I have to see some movement on filling up these fields over the next couple weeks or I'll have some decisions to make.

why isn't this sold out?

full disclosure: i gotta pick and choose my battles at the homefront... this one i chose not to swing too hard on so the later discap tournaments are a shoe-in :shifty:

people should be signing up for this... mono y mono all day! you'll laugh some, you'll cry some but hopefully you'll rise to the occasion in one of those scrappy battles against a formidable adversary that makes the whole day worth it even if you don't win the whole thing...

of course I have no idea how many people are signed up BUT i see a dead thread!

It's like 4 tournaments in one day, can't beat that
Matt, when will you decide if we have enough players?
I know it's a hard decision, thank you for all your efforts!

I'm not sure Greg. I get a lot of "interest",
but not a lot of commitment. There's NEFA tournaments at Pyramids and Maple Hill the same weekend. The Adirondack Birdie Bash is also the same day. And for locals, I tried to squeeze it between April Showers and the Jammer.

It's apparently a tougher sell than I hoped. I have contingency plans for less than 64 players. But if "less" ends up being 20 players, I may consider trying to push it to the end of the season (October-ish) and hope for a better turnout then. I don't want to scrap it altogether, but I also want to give the players a worthwhile tournament. Making pros pay $50 if there are only 5 or 6 in the cash pool doesn't make much sense to me. But we shall see.

I was more excited for this one than just about any tourney this year... I'm still stressed out, because I have a state test that weekend on "either Saturday or Sunday", and they still haven't let me know. Why would they, right? It's only 2 weeks away...

With regret, I am going to have to postpone the Dust Shaker tournament due to lack of registrations. With less than 15 currently registered players, it would be unfair to them to proceed with the event and not be able to provide a worthwhile investment of their buy-in. My plan is to move the event to late in the season, and promote it as a precursor to the NEFA Team Challenge that begins each Fall. My hope is that players across NEFA-land will be more apt to sign up in October in order to shake off that match play dust to gear up for some winter match play. I want to express my gratitude to all the players who signed up, showed interest, and gave feedback into the event itself. I am confident that we can still put on a great event in October and I look forward to seeing you there.
