Can't we just give Texas back to Mexico already? What a shame. These people need to be banned from tourneys all together.

EAST vs. West Event May 6.
Fun and Money for the Charity, yes yes it is. It can't all be about the money though that helps. It is about helping others who need it, so planning the event/venues was something that I worked with hard. Just didn't want people to feel as "rushed" as they may have in the past, so this year I was hopeful that not only would this enable us to raise more money, but also allow for a better experience on the 25th for all to enjoy, and little more camaraderie time for us all.
We need more Chug Rum Balls to enjoy don't we, and less waiting in line to throw?
So who's running this now? Not team captains, but the big picture. Serious question. Tracy?
Joe, great idea to hold a mini match play event for the remaining qualifying spots on the West Side. That'll be interesting and exciting. I'm glad you're calling out the qualifying process now. It will give people a chance to start preparing.
This is an elitist event. We have plenty of come one, come all and/or first come, first served tournaments. I pushed format changes the past two years to make the event as simple as possible to manage and for others to understand. I believe the event is in good shape now. I want the 16 playing spots on each team to be coveted, highly sought after. Expanding the rosters will only serve to diminish the value of qualifying for this event. As such, let's not do anything to change the actual event format and let some tradition establish itself.
I will likely follow the 6-6-4 qualifying format as well, with 6 spots selected at the Rosedale Open.
As for course selection, we should be playing at a course that plays to the EAST SIDE's strengths, and I have a few ideas on that front. However, that discussion should take place in a more private setting.
