  1. Michael,

    I assume this event is on June 18th.

    It might be helpful to put the date at
    the top of the posting so that people
    not familiar with our schedule will be
    aware as well.



  2. Ok, I had forgotten about the banner
    advertising the next tournament.

    Thanks for enabling it since I thought
    there could be slight confusion for
    new folks reading about a 'Father's Day
    Appreciation' tournament with Father's
    Day being on a Sunday and not the
    Saturday of the event.


  3. You are right vic. There could be some confusion. I added on the banner on the top after I saw your first comment.
    Thanks. McDufffie can confirm if the date is correct.

  4. I would like to play but cannot do it. Another time. Good luck to all. Marijan
