I was thinking of heading down to Steilly from Seattle/U-District on Thursday AM to get some pre-tourny rounds in. Anybody wanna join me and save on gas? Same goes for tourney day, I'd be glad to pick up/carpool and split gas...assuming it's not too far of a detour off I-5
Alright, we are up to 91 players. That leaves only 17 spots still available. At the rate I've been getting registrations, this event will fill before Saturday morning - So get signed up if you want to play.
Seeing how I ordered the players packs last week (when there were only 40 players signed up), many ams will be getting their umbrella late. I will have about 40 to give away on Saturday and I'm asking many of my locals to please be cool and be willing to pick up their umbrella from Mandos, Chainbanger'z, or me at Steily in a couple weeks. I will have a sheet players will be able to mark at check-in to let me know if they are willing to wait and where they'd like to pick up their umbrella.
It's going to be cold out there this weekend, but it should be dry.
Can't wait! I've never played a tournament on a course I haven't seen before. I've never played a tournament in temperatures below 60 F. I've never played a tournament where I've received an umbrella. I've never played a tournament where chili is offered for lunch and lastly I've never played a tournament in Washington. I'm excited.
WOW!!!! We couldn't have asked for nicer weather in December. And that is probably why the Chilly Smack registration rose by 150% from about 40 players on November 22 to 112 players on game day.
Thank you all for showing up, this was by far the most players I've had show up for a December event. I felt everything ran quite smooth, a few minutes behind schedule but players were in well before sunset.
Sunday was the exact opposite - we only had a total of 18 teams. This was fine with me - I just chilled by the fire and ate some delicious chili while catching up with a few old friends. And boy did the sun come out on Sunday.
Congratulations to John Anderson & Ming Vang. At the Chilly Smacker, John won pro open & Ming won pro masters. They partnered up for the Phantom Dubs and won that as a team. Way to dominate!!!!
It was cool- we had players from: Alaska, Ohio, California, Oregon, Eastern Washington, & all over Western Washington (Bellingham to Vancouver). Sean Phillips - you're a trooper for Oregon - nice second place finish, way to keep it tight.
Another tight race- Dana Etienne was barely able to keep Rick Bailey from catching him in the advanced division.
We raised $1342 for EDGE.
$4 a head = $448
additional from pro divisions = $288
additional from advanced divisions = $300
additional from intermediate divisions = $104
raffle = $202
I'm sure I'm forgetting something but until I figure it out-
Good Night & Thanks For Coming Out!!!!!
