Sorry the Sweet Onion festival is not until middle of July...17th and 18th (good reason to play the Nuke Meltdown). However, the best onions in the world will be available along with the best strawberries (whole or cut and frozen) from Klickers.
I wish I could bribe you and say that there would be a release of new red in town...come to think of it you could not have hit all the winery's yet.
Being a non-sanctioned tournament I attempt to keep it simple and offer Open, advanced, and Intermediate. Most play one division higher than they do if is sanctioned. For example, I play intermediate but will play advanced at this event. The one exception to the rule is if I get 3-4 women or juniors wanting to play then I will cater to their needs/wants. I think getting more women involved in the sport is a good thing and the juniors are the future of the sport so it is worth a bit of extra work.
It is a fun event and as a club we see to it to offer each division a CTP each round (champ, star, or Pro plastic)...it may be best putt or best second shot etc. We also as a club pay out 100% to the top 50% of each division. It seems that all that play enjoy themselves (ask 3fingers or uhlman) and having some lunch provided (hot dogs, chips, tater salad, maybe other stuff) seems to be a plus of the summer flying onion.
