I wonder if they have Entenmann’s in Denmark? That’s a question for another time. A glance at the calendar reveals I need to really get going with my plans to put the NCNC together. I have a reasonable amount of experience putting on golf tournaments, and they take a little time…a little cooperation from the players. I will be sending an email out today that will be looking for hard commitments. I know some people have already stated their interest, but please confirm you are coming to the event if you get the email. If you do not get the email, well then probably no one likes you, and you aren’t invited. Just kidding, if you want to play drop a note here, or at email@example.com
The Details, Revisited:
What is a NCNC: A NCNC is a “golf” tournament that has no celebrity players and benefits no charities. If you are a celebrity (even if it is just in your own mind) you are welcome to play, but your presence will not be acknowledged in any way. If you want to give a charity, break out the checkbook and go crazy, but this isn’t the venue.
When: September 12th. It’s a Saturday. It’s the Saturday before the NFL season starts. I’m not going to use the term “perfect lead-in”, but ok…I guess I just did. There likely will not be a rain date. Back up plan will be to go somewhere, get rat-faced, and play Golden Tee.
Where: I’m thinking we’ll play Turtle Creek this time. It’s just so damn easy, and basically that’s what we are looking for with this collection of has beens (me) and never weres (everyone else). I think we’ll play a 2-man Scramble this year, or perhaps a modified scramble known as a “Shamble Damble”. This was the format we played for the Jean Short Open, and it worked like a charm, and helped with pace of play. At the first NCNC the other “BK” took about 35 minutes to play the second hole, and held up the whole golf course.
Miscellany: Not a real pricey event. Pay for your own golf, get a free danish. There is a small prize fund, and the winning team will receive the Charles Coody “I shot 106 at Augusta” Memorial trophy, which is currently in the possession of KJM Jr. I need to talk to the committee and decide what we’ll do afterwards. Open to suggestions, but we’ll just be eating and drinking, so it shouldn’t really be of a concern where.
So, everyone sign up, invite some hack friends, whatever. It’ll be a good time.
