this sort of comment would usually be followed by "we'll be gentle with you", but this is frost breaker where the course and the weather will hav different ideas......

I'll be there.

And as ever am now looking at designing/modifying the Winter Course. As i intend to get there before toby to lay out the holes (stops me from going 'shopping' for the food)

I am also available for bribes to include/exclude certain Monstrous Holes that may or may not include nipples, titties, swamps, bogs, marshes or bunny rabbits.

Just for everyone's amusement, I've made the Registration Spreadsheet accessible to anyone with this link https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key ... y=CLKZ9ZYE - so now you can see who's coming (and who's sandbagging).

This is important as if you are not a *CURRENT* member then you don't get stats .... period! There will be no retro fitting stats for either BDGA or PDGA so if you want stats ... get sorted!

I realise this is slightly off topic as well, but, if you have reigstered since November you should have at least had an email back from me confirming the registration. Two of the packs I sent out before christmas to new members never arrived so please if you are waiting on anything or have not heard from me let me know. If the form wasn't used to register I have found some emails have gone direct to my junk mail so there is a chance I have not received.

thanks

So let me get this straight? If i'm a whitcombe virgin it's on £2 entry fee but if i'm a BDGA member i get £5 off so they'll owe me £3 for showing up?

Only joking but i was considering if i was coming or not due to being skint but the £2 entry fee has sealed it for me so i'll definately be there, whoever made this happen needs a slap on the back and a pint. :D

Toby will be there all weekend and I'm sure wouldn't turn his nose up at the proffered pint...... Go easy on the happy slapping though you Cov' thug you.
