biting my tongue....I live in St Louis now...I live in St Louis now...I LIVE in St Louis now???
Yeha, they gave us an HOUR to get from Endicott to Jefferson Barracks.
I know that I like to eat, and relax between rounds, this event at that time did not seem to handle it. I have not been back since, and I made my case to allow for the driving time and eating time, but again, get clarification and know where your courses are, as time was essential, and if I didn't know where the courses were I may not have made it in time.
Yeah, I recall grabbing drive thru fast food then getting a little lost from endicott to souix passage. Maybe 10 minutes lost time. But by the time I got to the course, everyone was hiking off to their tee.
Do all division still have to meet at Endicott for check-in and the players meeting on Saturday morning? Yeah, that was simply just lame to not be able to check-in at your course.
That event was not player travel friendly at all. I would likely not go back, even though I enjoy the courses, unless they can prove having their act together.
Yes, Players' Meeting 8am SHARP Saturday at Endicott. Player's party is there that night, a whole pig is being cooked, starting as I type, I think. Finals are Sunday at Creve Coeur, Final 9 for Open and Ams only, I think, safari course is par 41 or so, starting from original 7 and basically circling the course perimeter. Long-ass holes in there normally, much less this layout...it's NUTS!
Bring rain and mud gear, forecast is for rain starting Friday afternoon, continuing through Saturday and into Sunday morning. Sioux and Alton won't be bad, but JB and Endicott will be...interesting. A lot of Endicott looks like DU, or worse, in terms of mud quantity. Tim's put in a lot of drainage and other stuff at Endi to help eliminate some of the real problem areas, and it's looking great. JB can be nasty in a couple of places, but a couple of bridges and some clean up should help that a lot too. Still some mud.
I'll see all you guys who're coming over Sat morning at Endi, maybe not at the player's party. I'll be working reg after about 330 Friday, too.
