POV’ers – we are in crunch time for the 1st Annual Pitt POV Golf Outing. We have named the trophy the “FRANKCAN Memorial Trophy” and it will be a beauty (graciously provided by BigB).
Right now, by our count, we have 26 people coming for the event. 17 POV Guys with nine guests. Not a bad turnout for a first time.
Now – the important part. We have to get the money to Quicksilver in a few days so April 10th is the absolute (maybe) deadline for entry. I’m sure we can work out something for those a day or two late but please make a decision and get back to myself or Rick Caldwell (Erie Express) as soon as possible.
Remember – you don’t have to golf to be there and to have fun. I’ll not be golfing and we have a bunch of POV friends who are paying the $25 to eat, drink and hang out talking Pitt football. At the very least $25 is a small fee to be able to sit around and insult the guys who haven’t shown up!
Let me thanks a few posters for changing their golf fees to donations when they found they couldn’t make the tournament; rkb, Markp and tedsptman have been generous in the extreme to make sure we can cover all the expenses incurred. Remember guys – if things change you are certainly welcome to attend and have fun with us.
Here is some info from Rick that is subject to change…
Menu for dinner after our round of golf:
Quicksilver Clubhouse Buffet
Penne Pasta Marinara, Italian Meatballs, Roasted Italian Chicken, Roasted Redskin Potatoes, Green Beans Almandine, Tossed Salad and Dressing, Homemade Rolls and Butter, Coffee, Tea, Soft Drinks and Assorted Dessert Table.
Golf participation: Right now, Quicksilver has us down for 28 golfers – we should finalize the number one week from tomorrow, or April 10th. We can probably sneak in a last minute entry or 2 in after that, but no guarantees.
Start times: The golf club has our tee times set from noon to 1:15pm – not a traditional “shotgun” start that I wanted. But that is because it is a holiday (Good Friday before Easter Sunday) and the club expects the course to be full with golfers, weather permitting. We should consider a check in time – possibly 11am so we know who showed up – Lastrow volunteered to help with check-in.
Rules of play for the golf outing: I am drafting them and will send them to you for final approval sometime this week. I will keep them very simple and basic. This is the 1st outing and we want to keep it fun.
OK – $75 for golfing per person and $25 for us lazy bastards who just want to sit around and shoot the breeze. Check in time will be 11:00 am – I’ll be there earlier as will a couple of other POV’ers.
