The @FirstFlight’s 3rd and final “Air Show” of the summer will be held at Wilmington Muni. It will coincide with the end of the Propeller Cup season before we announce our regional team participants. We are aiming for a field of 40, holding the first 30 spots for First Flight Aviators and the final 10 for anyone wanting to #getinvolved.
When: June 25th, 2022
Tee Times: 10 times, 9:33a-1054a (roughly 9 min apart),
Participants: 40 spots, 30 reserved for FF Aviators/spouses, kids, etc & remaining 10 for random Refugee’s. May be able to secure additional tee times if there is enough demand.
Format: Front 9 Shamble (75% individual handicap), Back 9 Best Ball (90% individual handicap), Total Best Ball Scoring
-Handicaps rounded to the nearest whole number then broken into 9 hole shot totals.
-Example: Tyler 2.1 index, 4 course handicap from tips, shamble @ 75% = 3 course (either 2 or 1 shots depending on side distribution), best ball @ 90% = 3.6 course rounds to 4 (2 shots for side distribution)
-Based off 2021 USGA recommendations.
-2 man teams, pick your own partner.
First Flight Points Allocation: 50/20/10/8/6/4/2 split between winning teams.
Charities: 1st Tee of Wilmington & Bunkers in Baghdad
-used club and ball drive
-monetary donation of $10 if no material donations to go to the first tee and cover shipping cost to bunkers
Paraphrasing @BrooklynAJ slightly, “things may get weird but remember you are amongst friends.”
The roosts are a new thing within the refuge trying to get more people playing together within their local areas. GSO eastward towards the coast is referred to as the First Flight. I’m sure others could explain it way better than me (@Swing_hard_and_hope).
