Originally, we had hoped to use this as our IGC v. NGC event. Sadly, IGC is not able to join us. Initially, there was strong interest amongst members in this trip. I need to verify that now and start asking for sign ups on the site. There is a lot of logistics in holding tee times at the various courses and early commitment is key. We have options for this trip.
Option 1, continue to format a series of match play events over the four days,
Option 2 Simply organize recreational play and have fun,
Option 3. Reduce from four days to three days.
At present we have held 5 tee times at each course. As IGC is no longer in play, I am unsure if we need all 5. But I need a strong number to block tee times. Some have also asked that we block hotel rooms. I am hesitant to do this, as I do not want to commit the club to deposits and the other logistical challenges. I would rather leave housing to the individual. With that in mind, you really want us (and in this I mean Robert) to block hotel rooms, then I need strong commitment from those who want the rooms.
What I need from you are two things. Firstly, send me an email on your preferred options. I’ll accommodate as best I can. If you are suggesting we move to three days, that would mean dropping the Thursday play. From there I will list all four days separately on the website, giving people the option as to which days they wish to play.
