----REMINDER----
Tomorrow Tuesday March 22nd, I am requesting that those of you that would like to help with the Wide Open attend an informal meeting to get us all on the same page.

We will meet at Danny's Big Easy
1601 East 18th Street
Kansas City, MO 64108
(816) 421-1200

7:00-8:30

If you plan on playing, you can help prepare in advance in many ways as well.

We will need help to ensure that this Wide Open is yet again a testament to the club of Kansas City and how we role out the carpet to our out of town guests.

No need to RSVP, please come with an open mind, and a chance to ask questions and give thoughts on what you feel can make the event even better.

My neighbor is a nurse and has her own Massage company, I'm talking to her bout setting up her table and doing dollar/minute massages, She's totally down.

 I think it doesn't take away from, but adds to...

 Whatchu think Jack?

Its on my list that you do not see.  I talked with Massage Heights about this, but I would prefer to keep it in the family, so I am in favor of this by all means.  I would ask that they do a tee sign sponsor or 1/2 tee sign sponsor at the very least.  Then I would be ok with it more than likely.

I havent contracted it out yet so, I am still open.

Sue B from Colorado was a fixture here doing that for several years very successfully. I think it's a great added feature.

Just a question but will Non-PDGA members be allowed to play this event ? Based on the link you must be a PDGA member to play.
