Thank you! I was not sure what to expect. I had no clue there would be 150+ people show up to play. I appreciate the local player base welcoming the event. I understand it was a long day & I appreciate your patience. See the bottom for my evaluation.
More thank yous!
Sean Ryan. Sean contacted me a while about about getting this event going. If it weren't for Sean this event would not have taken plance. Sean also helped move pins and promote the event locally.
Tim McNinch. www.fadegear.com
Thank you for donating 6 bags. They were excellent first round CTP's. I am impressed with the bag. Tim also helped get pins moved.
Scott Pitner. http://www.paperorplasticsports.com
Scott took a chance coming out. Thank you Scott! I have never seen such a big stock of plastic at an event by 1 vendor. I believe it took up 8 picnic tables. WOW! Scott still has CFR Destroyers and TeeRexX.
Dan Michler, Tom McManus, & Adrian Gutierrez Sr.
These 3 guys were at the park from 7:00AM to 9:30PM.
Dan helped tremendously with the course. He chose the pin positions and created the course information sheet. On Friday we set up the tee pads
and marked the baskets. On Saturday he was a major volunteer. Without him the course would have been really overbooked.
Tom helped with course setup and teardown as well. He was another major volunteer on Saturday. This guy is hard nosed guy and a work horse.
Without these 2 guys we wouldn't have started until 11pm. Tee off was at 10am exactly. Not too bad!
Adrian Sr is another work horse. From watching merch to checking score cards he gets it done. Thanks for having the Mach 5 in the car to make the 25th hole. He was there until the end just packing boxes like crazy.
Others. If I miss your name I am sorry. There are guys that did jobs that I had no idea they were doing. These guys stepped it up and made it happen. Thank you for your efforts.
Spike, Chris Jordan, & Ryan Jones. Writing score cards.
Ryan Jones, Rob Strasser, Doug Paytne, & Dan Pastore. Scoring and sorting.
Dana Vicich, Brad Dow, Ben Singer, Scott Reek, and Chris Jordan. Course teardown.
Dan Pastore and Rob Strasser. Awards Ceremony. Awards finished at exactly 8:48 PM.
- I am terrible with names. He is a local from Sterling. He helped up pack up Scott's van until the end. We pulled out of the park at 9:30PM.
Without all of you this event was not possible. I appreciate your effort and contribution in making this event a success.
