We had a team at check-in, another team handled scoring and questions about using uDisc (lots of those), another team handled beer/water, the tournament director did the players meetings, and I handled sound and announcements. We all helped with set-up and tear down.

We had 72 throwers, 4 on each card of 18 holes for a 9am, Noon, and 3pm rounds each day, Sat and Sun, and it went over really well. Having that PA system always helps too. lol

Looking forward to next year.
that is a full on weekend..gosh no grub..not clever need to feed..gives energy and fulfilment to boot....
I have been in a Prison..a London one Wormwood Scrubs...well known but it was NOT me in jail....I have known many walks of life and just gives you knowledge of the big wide world we thrive in..mostly.
You pigging out today no doubt...Minx missing you....

We had Domino's pizza delivered, so I did choke down a piece but that's about all I could stomach of that abomination for what they try to pass off as pizza.

My mates Jo and Graham staying in their French Holiday Home still
last year Graham was so so ill he nearly died...
The food in Hospitals here has a reputation for being crap.

He got dished up an unrecognisable excuse for a Pizza..it was binned of course, and Jo bought in Food for him..
..The Guy was ill and they dish him up crap...do not get that at all...
I know the food can be rough in places where they are catering for huge amounts of people...but that is no excuse really.

So were you pleased with your D.J ing..
They let you out then haha..

Hmmm... ok, I think I can make that work.

I also included the University of Chicago/Cobb Hall, since I need to fill some space...

...then, after approval and final orders were placed for swag items, I placed the finished logo over a render for a phone background the entire team can use:

Spoiler for big huge reveal:


...and so it begins:

Like Navy Pier in Chicago, it's an "Attraction".

Raising the stakes! This is great news for the sport:

DGPT Announces Guaranteed Rate as Presenting Partner of Tour Championship

They also own Comiskey Park here in Chicago (home of the White Sox), which they renamed in their likeness.
