Last year, the first weekend in November, the venerable(ish) Avon Fields Golf Course in Cincinnati, Ohio hosted the first Strong Like Stella Cincinnati Open (also known as the Duel to the Death or the Duel at Dawn or something to do with Skyline chili and reading a book). It was a gathering for the ages (literally and figuratively), and it raised an unprecedented sum for @pushdraw’s daughter Stella and her battle with SMA.
This year, the coronavirus pandemic has delayed and canceled numerous golf events around the world - but the show must go on! After a quick poll of the Roll Call: Ohio thread, it seems there is a fair-enough level of interest in holding a second SLSCO, so I am hereby proposing such an event.
Weather and government permitting, I’m looking at Saturday, November 7th as a target date. This gives us plenty of time for event organization and travel planning. However, I’m going to need some help. I don’t personally have the ability, physically or financially, to put on an event to the scale it was last year. What parts of last year’s tournament do we want to bring back? What do we want to do different, or new? You tell me - I’m open to suggestions.
My only request is this: let’s get a big group of Refugees and other golf nuts together at a cool old muni in Cincinnati on a cold autumn morning, play some golf, have a good time, and support a worthy cause. Who’s with me?
