Dick has said it better than I.....
Friends, family and fellow Leos. We have a very important announcement to share with you.
After 12 years (or 13),the Lion's Den Open has been canceled for 2015. This was a tough decision for both Jack Lowe and myself (Dick Parker). But, we feel it is necessary to recharge the batteries for a year and hopefully come roaring back in 2016.
We know that this news may disappoint many of you who have looked forward to this event every year. We are sorry for those whom we have let down. But we didn't feel good about throwing together a half-ass event just to say we did it 13 or 14 times. We always strive to be the best hosts and give the best party but this year just wasn't shaping up the way we had hoped.
The good news is that Jack and I will now be free on our ACTUAL birthday, Aug 22nd, to do... whatever the hell we want. Because, what really matters is, let's face it, US. After all, we are Leos.
We will still accept gifts, cash, or lottery tickets for our birthday this year. None of that has changed. FYI.
So, at this point you may tell your bosses and loved ones that you are now free on Aug 22nd. If you need a tissue right now, we'll understand. It's a lot to take in.
Thank you everyone for making the last 12 or 13 years some of the greatest memories we could ever hope for. Not many people can say they have 200+ friends, 2 bands, Lunch, Dinner, Beer, Disc Golf, and of course Mini Disc Golf at their freaking birthday party every year!!
We hope to see you next year!
-Dick Parker and Jack Lowe
