Absolutely UNPLAYABLE. Where it's not frozen I was sinking in 2" and sliding around. NO CARTS. On the way out I stopped at the retention pond and cleaned off my boots and pants. Saturday will be a day of attrition.
Still have 4 days to dry up . Mother Nature be nice!

Get ready.  It will not dry.  Years of MTBing have taught me what to expect.  It would need to be 90 and all sun from now till the event to dry that place out, and that might not even do it.  What is now frozen might melt and get as soft as the rest.  Cleats wouldn't even help.  Pretty much stand and deliver anywhere but the pads.  My solo round took 3 1/2 hours.  IO'm ditching my cart and bringing a walking staff.  Some of those trails are treacherous.  I'll get a pic up as soon as my phone recharges.

I just spoke to Tom Mcmanus and we will be meeting and organizing over by the ball fields.  (over by the woodsy holes 19-21)  Just concerned with parking spaces for all.. So please park over by the original park district building/ past the sand volleyball/ concession stand/ football field not near the "new" rec building.. please tell a friend so we are all on the same page..

thanks!

I probably seemed somewhat harsh in my assessment of the course conditions.  I just wanted to tell it how it is, so no one is surprised.  If you didn't catch my second sentiment, this is it...  Saturday is going to be messy.  SO WHAT!  I'm really looking forward to playing with some people I may not normally run into in a non-money centered, fun environment.  Thanks to Mr. McManus for organizing this.  As kids we used to love playing in the mud.  Embrace your inner child and let's have some fun!

has there been any talk of doing an event wide ace pot or ctps? or anything within just the club?

$1 ace and two $2 ctps? or something like that?

Clubs should bring a ctp or two to throw in for free. Fox Valley is bringing one or two really nice ctps with discs etc...
It's great to be alive!
Positive mind helps.

the board voted to include 2 CTPs for all at the challenge..

as far as an ace pool goes I always loved the way it's handled up at Sandy Point.. Honors system $1.. after the round announcements are made as to who aced and the players seek out the player to pay up.. simple, effective, and makes for good karma.. you get a chance to say congrats in person, shake a hand, and make a new friend in the process.. if someone is not inclined to pay up chances are they would not have opt'd into an ace pool anyways.. (well that point could be argued but who wants bad karma for any aces going forward, pay up!! :) )

thoughts??...

Ray -

That is pretty cool!  That's how you'd do it in a casual round with friends...That sounds like a great way to handle it, particularly with an event that encompasses other clubs...
