I believe we could attract as many as 10-15 couples. How about $10 per couple and the money purchases food for the bbq? Early September we would still have plenty of daylight to meet and start play around 9:00, break for lunch, and get an afternoon round in. Play morning round with spouse and do a random draw in the afternoon. People could donate CTP's, and/or we could solicit donations from businesses.
I'd be happy to help out with the planning. (I was going to do it eventually anyway) "Over the Hill" Bob and Motherhucker will be there.
I agree, $10 a couple and donated prizes seems about right. But I also think the format needs to be a little more fair than just 'couple with lowest score'. CTPs would be better. When we did the Valentine's couples event, we had a women's CTP, as well as a men's. A washington/oregon (like at the Bad Monkey) might be a good choice too.
And none of the ladies went away empty handed, because each of us got a rose!
