The Refuge is a helluva place. About a month ago I reached out to the @Double_Bogey_Dave because I wanted to contact @Lazstradamus about setting up a gentlemen’s bet. Two years ago he put my swing in the Flop 10 and it’s been eating at me since. I set a goal of betting him that I could shoot a score and prove that his judgement was wrong (read: shove it up his ass). We agreed to terms and my plan was
Get person who I’ve never interacted with in real life to agree on a silly bet
Fill out NLU event form so we can maybe have merch
HOWEVA, after filling out the events form I learned that this event has been given a NIT spot. So now the plan is put the Winona/La Crosse area on the map as a great spot for golf.
Where: Cedar Valley Golf club, Winona MN https://www.cedarvalleymn.com/
When: May 22
Field size: TBD, aiming for 20-30 but the more the merrier.
Format: Evenly distributed teams play NLU style TILT for a small prize. For the NIT spot, either the top point earner from each team squares off in a horse race or the winning team decides who takes the NIT spot.
Cost: $33 walking, $49 w/cart. Can walk all day
Charity: Hiawatha Mental Health Center
So why call it The Windmill?
When it comes to our goals, especially our golf goals, they are manifestations of our mind. We are chasing these goals which we constructed to prove something to ourselves.
Much like Don Quixote tilted at windmills because he believed them to be monsters, we are chasing our golf goals without realizing how kooky it can look to outsiders. For fuck’s sake, I’m driving 278 miles to play my old college course and hopefully shoot low enough that Laz has to donate to my alma matter. (I should also mention that my wife fully supports this and the paperwork to make her a living saint has been submitted)
So let’s go have some fun
