Garrett, league starts in March. March 19th at Rosland Park to be exact. It is a preseason and player's meeting, but I would like everyone there who is going to play or is considering playing this year to show. I would like to see money as well but it will not be mandatory until the April event.

If that is the case, I can throw in 5 dollars as well.

If, IF, you are planning on playing in the marathon overnight round, you have to attend a winter camping survival seminar tonight. It is free and it is recommended people attend even if they are unsure whether they are going to play in the overnight marathon or not. If you do not go to this class (6:30-9:30pm, Monday, Jan 24th), then for sure you cannot play overnight.

The seven day forecast is predicting that night to be a decent night for winter. Obviously things change and you cannot trust the forecast more than two days out, but I am hopefuly considering the weather we have been having the last week. Last year's weather was fantastic so I am hoping for a repeat.

I tee off at noon on Saturday since it is a flex start, finish around 3pm, heading to a local restaraunt to warm up and tape lights to my night discs, tee off for the marathon around 6pm (unless Char wants us there earlier), play until I drop, and then tee off for the Sunday round at 9am.

While it may make it slow going, I love playing in bigger groups. Obviously having more spotters and those who can kick up snow where they think a disc landed definitely helps, but I find the company of a lot of people who know how to have a good time essential for having fun.

Yeah, that shouldn't be a problem.

I'll talk to Alfs about it next time I see him as well.

Wow, there seems to be a lot of interest here. Let's all meet up this summer, hit BRP on a busy day, and clog it up even more with a 20 man group :P

Any city players interested in meeting halfway this summer at St. Cloud? There are a couple solid courses there.

I'll definitely do St. Cloud at least a few times this year, I love several of the courses around that area, and my grandmother loves it when I visit.

We'll keep this thread as our headquarters and plan meetups at BRP, St. Cloud, Cities area courses, and if anybody wants to come to southern MN, I'll show you around some awesome courses down this way.

What courses have you played in Cloud? What's your fave? I love Riverside, if you're feeling daring Millstream is just plain sick.

I really like Hidden Lake, though I wish it would be better kept, maintain the fairways pour some concrete tees, but I love the layout. It's a tossup between Millstream and Riverside, I really like 'em both, I played the Northstar throwdown at those two last summer, the tourney layout was sick at both of them. Then not too far east of cloud is Clearwater, sportsmans hill, a short technical challenge that I could play every day and not get bored with it. Then, not too far beyond that is Becker, I love that course too. I've also played a handful of the others, Calvary was fun, crowded, and didn't excite me too much. Northside and River's Edge were decent.

Calgary seems to be a newbie hang out. I want to play Becker, there's a course in Rice if I'm not mistaken, have you played it?
