Here’s hoping you all had a Merry Christmas and a great start to 2015! Attached is this year’s entry form. Some of you old timers will remember The Bridges; an Arnold Palmer course in Bay St. Louis, MS. The resort has changed names from Casino Magic to Hollywood Casino, but all looks much as it did when we were there before (twice). The hotel has been rebuilt (after being destroyed by hurricane Katrina) and it’s really nice. Most of Bay St. Louis’ downtown is also new construction, with some of the same joints having been rebuilt. The Bridges is a really fun course, but there are some hazards (besides the alligators). It’s called The Bridges for good reason…...
A couple changes that we need to point out. As we did last year, we upped the pay-outs and thus included in the entry fee is $200 in bets (day money, skins, and team bet). Also, since most all arrive on Wednesday night; we included the cost of a Wednesday night room in the entry fee. (If you are not coming until Thursday, you can deduct this cost.) For our big money gamblers, unfortunately they do not provide comps before the visit, so we cannot adjust the entry to calculate what they may offer you.
As in tourneys past, we will have a 4-man team (A-B-C-D) and you will play one round with each of your partners. Another change that is not reflected on the entry is that we will not have the Alternate Shot as one of the tournament rounds. We have added a format that we think will be a lot of fun. All the gory details will be included in the first update letter.
We are once again planning to send any money that would be sent to the government in way of taxes, to the Wounded Warrior Project.
The Hubs have been over a couple times in the past few months, and the course is really in good shape and a fun track. It should make for an exciting tourney. With limited stopping, it took about 5 ½ hours to drive there from Houston. You always have to count on traffic in Beaumont and at the Mississippi River Bridge in Baton Rouge. If you fly into New Orleans, it’s 70 miles from the airport to the resort.

Anyway, take a look at the spreadsheet and figure out how you will close the gap next year. If only your teammate didn't three putt 18....damn!
