Ladies and Gentlemen,
It’s time to determine which Refuge contingent officially owns the Midwest region. Painstaking negotiations have given way to an event that is certain to be a highlight of the 2021 season.
Our chairguis have agreed to set up season long match play tournaments beginning in the spring of 2021 (or fall 2020 in the case of Illinois). The top two finishers from each match play bracket will earn a team birth in The Midwest “Ope”-in, a two day event to be held at Lawsonia late next summer.
Refugees from all around will flock to Lawsonia to watch these teams fight (while playing a tournament of their own) until only one is left standing and able to claim the title of Midwest “Ope”-in Champions!
We have officially locked down tee times for up to 60 attendees, with the following details:
When: Friday and Saturday, August 20th and 21st, 2021
Where: The Golf Courses of Lawsonia
Time: Tee times begin on the Woodlands at 7:10 AM and Links at 12:40 PM both days
Cost: $240 for unlimited play
That’s the baseline cost for the golf, but we will like look to include other miscellaneous items (including the famous fish fry on Friday evening) so don’t assume this is the final cost to attend.
I would like to thank our Illinois chairgui @JBors, our Nebraska chairguise @Hala-Mark-Rey and @Mwilhelm10, and our Wisconsin chairguise @chrisisoutrunning and @midwestgolfbum. Each will be responsible for coordinating their respective match play tournaments and determining who will represent them next August.
North Dakota and Iowa refugees, feel free to contact the appropriate chairgui (I’ll handle Minnesota) if you’re interested in joining a match play tourney.
The sign up sheet is below, beginning on line 17. Once we hit 60 interested attendees we’ll begin a waitlist for anyone else interested in attending.
Alert your spouses and get it on the calendar. Further details in the months to come!
