Superb night at Devens for league! We hit a new record high of 74 players. I am quite scared of what is going to happen when we get to the 5:30 starts. Weather was fantastic we we got our first and second aces of the season! Nat Fairbanks hit his first career ace on hole 9 and Bob Kulchuk nailed hole 17 to split the large pot.
Hole assignments for The General didn't work very well. Here is what we are going to try next week. Let me know if you have any other ideas.
We are sending up to 33 people max out on The General. Will send out groups to hole 1 in groups of 3, then hole 12 in groups of 3, then hole 9 in groups of 3 then hole 14 in groups of 3. The first 9 people will start on 1, then the next 9 on hole 12, ect. You will receive a hole assignment AND a group # and a tee time. Group 1 will start 10 minutes before the general tee time, group 2 will start 5 minutes before the generals tee time and group 3 will start on time with the generals tee time (STILL 15 MINUTES BEFORE THE HILL).
So you check in and tell me you want the general, I tell you that you are on hole 1 in group 1 with a tee time of 10 minutes early.
I can't think of any better way other than spreading the holes out more and that is just cruel! I need to get you checked into my spreadsheet with a hole assignment in under 30 seconds in order to get everyone checked in and out to their hole on time so all cooperation in appreciated.
I'll be using an air horn next week to avoid another false start..
