    the date is 8/13/2008 my bad i was reading a budget report from 07 while typing the thing up.


    i realize the 2nd annual thing is funny since we did it first in 06 but we couldn't get scheduled last year with the team so we skipped last year.

    speaking of scruggs, we don't need "i won't make it" or "i might make it" emails. we want to use these to sign folks up (include everyone's name) and match up foursomes to players.

    I think we met up around 5 or so last time and had some HH drinks and sold some raffle tickets. We started golfing around 6:30 or so, does that sound right BR?

    Damn straight.

    Well, 'damn straight' to showing up and hitting golf balls.

    'Not so damn straight' if we're talking about my typical ball flight. I wonder why I'm not playing on the Tour.
