We made mention of the Inaugural (or First Annual) Spitblood Golf Tournament at the end of last week, and now we have finalized the sign up process, so here are the tournament details.
When: Saturday, August 14th, 2010. 2pm Shotgun Start.
Where: Whitestone Golf Club, Fort Worth (technically Benbrook), TX
Map of Location
Format: 4 Man Scramble, pick your own teams, or we can provide you with one.
Cost: $100. Covers Green Fee, Spitblood Scramble Koozie, Spitblood Scramble T-Shirt, Hamburger Buffet Lunch, and MOST importantly, all proceeds go to the Purple People Seaters Foundation.
Prizes: We will be battling for the coveted Spitblood Purple Jacket, that will be passed down to subsequent winners year to year.
I apologize for the manikin standing like an SMU grad, but it's the jacket that really counts
Sign Up: Please click on the link here or on the sidebar logo to pay through Paypal. If Paypal intimidates you please contact me at email@example.com for other payment options.
The Fine Print: To keep this fun and competitive, please do not stack your team with sub 10 handicappers. Aim for two 1-15s and two 16-30s. We are not taking handicaps so the honor rule does apply. Remember, nobody likes the jerks that win a 4 man scramble by 7 strokes.
Mulligans: To help raise additional money for PPS, mulligans will be available for purchase on the morning of the tournament for $10 a pop, limit two per player.
Can't Make It?: You can still contribute to the Purple People Seaters Foundation. Our readership is unevenly distributed all over the country, and even some international folks out there, so there will be a mass of people who simply can't make it. I have set up a separate link to donate any amount of your choosing directly to the Purple People Seaters Foundation. At the end of the day our goal is to raise as much money as possible for this great cause, so any amount you can offer is greatly appreciated.
Last year we were able to raise an amazing $4,425 in 30 days that helped send 200 kids to the TCU vs. New Mexico home game last year. Here is the post recapping the experience.
Help spread the word around Spitblood and Frog nation, all Frogs and friends of Frogs are welcome. Let's fill up the slots and look forward to a great tournament for an even better cause.
If we get enough participants to sign up, Coors Light has offered to sponsor the event. Read: Free Beer
