On the beer, I do think it adds a bit of a draw having "free beer" at the event. I may not have donated the proper amount for all the beer I drank, and I did drink a healthy share, but after all the mulligans, entry fee, chili, side games and such I was in pretty deep. If it gets more people out and involved anything else on top of that is just a bonus.

I can definitely understand this perspective.

bbjon raises an interesting question. Donations of beer. I am sure there is legalese there that I hope someone recognized. I like the donation. I think maybe that the beer and alcoholic beverages shouldn't be on an honor donation system. I would hope it would be an easy question to ask of our brewery friends that donated. Perhaps we go college party style and sell an armband, then tips as you will. Still I would like to see the event and the organizers bases covered in any situation.

The Oatmeal Stout was outstanding!


This is why we went with the donation and not a specific $ amount for the privilege for beers.  The beer was free, donations were strongly encouraged.  Remember, Kansas has yet to ratify the 21st amendment - the amendment to repeal Prohibition.  Kansas liquor laws are some of the strongest in the country and serving homebrew outside of the home is not exactly Kosher.

Speaking of which - thanks for the stout complement.  It is my interpretation of Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat.  About 10-20% more hops, 10-20% less lactose (milk sugar).  A tad less sweet, a tad more hops, both of which accentuates the dark malt and gives the perception of coffee - which no coffee was put in it.

Please - patronize Cinder Block Brewery.  Great little brewery in Northtown. Take Oak across the river, turn right on 18th, 1 block on left.  Great people, even greater beer.

We don't need to pay for a second potties station. We just need to pay for a second non-scheduled pumping of the station that was present with adding a 12- pack of extra toilet paper.

I had a couple of people ask me about non-alcohol drinks.  I agree that we need to have something.  This needs to be taken over by someone else.

I have mixed feelings about the Free Will Donation for the beer or a fixed price for a wrist band or something similar.  It would be best to take this part of the discussion off line or private.

Two in the putter side pocket.  They go in and out better if you place the flight plate to the bag instead of to the outside.

I can generally get 18 in my bag (+2 putters on outside).  I have, at times, gotten as many as 20 in the bag itself if it was distant or fairway driver dominant.  18 can be tight if mid heavy or even less if I carry more than 2 putters.

My typical set up is 18 + 2

This is the 1st Round setup.  I have not committed yet to what changes will take place the second round, but I will post soon

I'm a fan of 18 long.  Don't see it used much for tournies

I'm bringing another keg of beer to the Ice Bowl.  I'm trying to figure out how to use it to raise funds for ice bowl.  Any ideas?  Maybe selling cups?

pm sent

Just spoke with the owner of Cinder Block confirming their donations.  They are donating two kegs.  One keg will be their Northtown Native - a California Common (i.e. light(er) lager) and the other will be either the Prime Pale Ale or their Block IPA.

Would like to remind everyone, the purpose of these donations is to raise money for charity -  the Bishop Sullivan Centerís St James Food Pantry and Harvesters: the Community Food Network.  A donation jar will be made available to donate cash or check near the beer taps.

This thread is still being worked? 

Why quit now.

Come on - can we reach a fourth page!

Moving into the 2nd month of expiration is getting a bit excessive.

Cops trolling a park are in a different division than cops on a vice squad.  Separation of duties.

Non-payment of fees does have a victim - everyone else.  It reduces tax money for the system that benefits all people.
