Patrick - I agree, mother's day is a MUST avoid date while Father's day is far less of a problem. Some guys play *because* it's Father's day, and I think the amount of players that you lose is negligible. I ran that weekend in 2009 at West Park. There were 47 players, the Novice division was really small that weekend, not sure why. Novice was still a pretty new division though. I had 60-some the day before. Since Channahon is a better venue, you'd probably get the better turnout.
