  • The Fernearner Fun Drive at the Lucky Mud - Sept. 11

    OK, since there will be no Fernburner this year, we're going to have a little something as a replacement. Several details have yet to be worked out, but here's the skinny:

    This event will be in the spirit of the 'Burner, but different on a few notes.
    • First and foremost, I'll be running it instead of Sara--she finally gets to enjoy the tourney like the rest of us have. And I get to stress myself out.
    • Secondly, I know a big highlight of the 'Burner was the amount and quality of the food provided. Preparing that amount of food is a huge ordeal and I'm not going to try to take that on, so as of now, it's BYOG (bring your own grub). I'll need to check, but I believe Adam said there are grills for people to use. If however, someone wanted to take on the task of cooking up meals, by all means, let me know.
    • This will be a fundraiser tournament. I'm hoping to at least be able to get one more basket for the Mud, and a little extra for the maintenance and upkeep of the course--just a little something so we can all say thanks to the Fletchers and Ol' Bob for all they've provided.
    • Registration is going to be very limited. I'm limiting the registration to 72 spots, several of which are already spoken for (Adam, Sara, Ol' Bob, etc.). I know a lot of people want to get into the Fernburner every year but for some of us, it's become something of an annual pilgrimage. I've got the results from the previous years, and registration will work like this: for anyone that's been to the last two consecutive 'Burners, you will get two weeks of priority registration. For everyone that was at last year's 'Burner, you'll get one week priority registration. After that, it will be open to all. I'm going to be like the German police with this too, firm. Firm but fair. You want to get into this tournament, you will have to register like everyone else. I don't care how good of friends we are, your name needs to be on the list if you want a spot. Anybody that has been to prior Fernburners know that this hasn't always been the case and a lot of people assumed they were in, and just showed up the day of. This, among other things, led to big headaches for Sara, and well, people wonder why there isn't a Fernburner this year....

    I know that the scheduling overlaps the Eugene Celebration and that'll probably bum a few folks out, but as you know, it's impossible to schedule an event without overlapping another these days. But, Eugene is a good distance away from Skamokowa, and a lot of the Fernburner peeps aren't drawn to big sanctioned tourneys anyway.

    Many more details to come soon, but I just wanted to get that out there so people can mark their calendars. And no, "Sumpin' Sumpin'" is not the name of the tournament, though it's not the worst I've heard.

        You could call it a "fernament."

        I'm willing to trade my birth for a 22 oz. IPA (or another basket). I'm sticking with my pledge to remain tournament free. I'm kickin' the habit, I tells ya. My stress level is going down in a serious way.

          I was all excited... until you mentioned that this is on the same weekend as EC. Could not possibly miss that one.
          Have fun and hopefully catch you guys next year.
          ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

            Early registration is now available! Below is the list of those that are eligible. I just sent out an email with the same list, but I don't have contact info for everyone. Those whose names are in bold are ones I don't have contact info for. Please take a look and if you know the person, please let them know about the tournament and their eligibility:
            Edit: a couple email addresses bounced back on me, the names have been bolded as well. Sam, you need to empty your inbox, apparently.

            Entry fees are $30 for all open divisions, $25 for all advanced divisions, and $20 for all amateur/recreational divisions. Add $2 if you would like to be in the ace pot. Tee sign sponsorships are also available for $15. Camping is available for $10 per tent (I believe). The easiest way to send money to me is paypal, which you can send to timcoye@yahoo.com. You can also, of course, mail in the entry to:

            Tim Coye
            13201 Linden Ave. N #307A
            Seattle, WA 98133

            You can also pay the day of, but if you do, I'd like some sort of convenience gratuity, be it a few extra bucks, a tasty beverage, some baked goods, etc.

            The main tournament will be a standard 2 casual rounds of singles golf, just like the Burner. In addition though, Andrew Rivers has graciously volunteered to run a glow doubles match AND to roll out the infamous Throwbot competition!

            Feel free to contact me with any questions, email/PM is best, but you can also call me at 206-276-8873.

                    That'd be sweet!

                    Funny story, last year while hanging out at one of the campfires, I met another guy named Tim. I asked, "Oh, are you the sausage guy?" Without missing a beat, he was like "How did THAT get out?"

                          Registration is now open to all who attended last year's event. I've got too much on my plate right now to sort out the list of email addresses to try to email everyone I have in any timely manner, so if you see a name on the list of someone who might want to play but doesn't come to the forums often, please let them know. Thanks!

                            According to post #6 early registration has been open since August 2... not sure how the dates got changed, but that's good news for us not on the pre-reg list, eh... no?, oh well, guess I'll start the countdown.
                            Don't just walk past that candy wrapper on the fairway-- I know you saw it!
