Hi,

can I just remind everyone attending that if they want PDGA stats (and reduced tournament fees), they need to renew their BDGA membership before the tournament.

Please fill in the form at http://bdga.org.uk/join-the-bdga and I will process them before the Frostbreaker.

Cheers,
Tom

Invite says "0930 Tee off: First round", so I'm reasonably confident it'll be before lunch ;)

Can someone have a look to see if my Soft magnet (white old thing with Flosseh written on it) has found it's way into the lost and found please (and grab it if so and I'll get at Croydon or Bristol).

If it's not in the lost and found and anyone is feeling extra helpful and fancied having a look for me, if you go past the basket of goolagong and left straight away after the gate, then up the fence line to the next gate (tee of kingfisher?) it was last seen there near the water, which was very overgrown in the summer.

2 pints for the finder!

I was having a bit of a clear out, and came across a Beaminster newspaper from 5 years ago. The paper sported the headline "Experts baffled by a rare apple" I remember seeing that paper at the pub on Saturday evening and almost pissed myself laughing, as it seemed like something you'd see in an episode of Father Ted (I was quite drunk) Happy Days!!

You know that bit in many different Simpsons episodes where Granddad heads off on some random mostly unrelated story? I read that in his voice... :wink:

Any DISCS or EQUIPMENT required?

If anyone has any gaps in their arsenal for the weekend and can find what they need on the Catch the Spirit Shop, I am happy taking orders. txt: 07977 216 355. 10% of revenue will go into the Tsunami pot. If there is something you need but can't see online, ask anyway as I have quite a few offline too. The cut off point is 10pm, Thursday.
Thanks, Chris

Any decision on which holes we are playing? Traditional FB 18?

The course planning is shaping up nicely and subject to TD's final approval it should include the regular
winter classics such as fishykingdigit, Beaminster Blunder, and 'You can't park there!'

plus a few winter wonderland extras including -

Watery Bunny Elbow

Spring over to the dead ridge

Pansyenuse

WildGoolalongalongalonga

Minns Jape

looking at a Par 65!

see you there

looking at a Par 65!
Sounds exciting, but also sounds like it could take over 3 hours to play, and that would make it pretty tight to get 2 rounds on Saturday.
I'm not saying it can't be done, but it will need some slick organisation to have all cards/maps and groups ready, and simple OB's clearly stated in advance, so that there's nothing to discuss at a players meeting.
Players: make sure you are there in good time. There's not enough daylight to delay the start, and you don't want par plus 4 for missed holes.
Looking forward to it! :)

Jester won't be happy if he misses the start of Scotland v England at 5.

Sunset is at 4.54.

Sunrise is 07:33, need to tee off no later than 0830.

As mentioned already it would be really helpful to see the course notes and OBs up here for questions prior to Saturday morning.
