Prizes: Disc(s) for the top bracket(s). How many places depends on how many entries we get.

Group: NWDC March Madness

We need one more team!
We need one more team (3 players) for the Trash Bash this weekend. If you know anyone that can play, even if it's just one person, please let us know so we can try to form that final 8th team.
Marc Hamlin - Team Tilley's October 17, 2012 at 12:16pm
Trash Bash Format
We currently have 5 teams signed up.
6 teams works best, 8 teams is OK also.
If you are the 7th team, you will need to bring team #8 in with you.
This is purely based on format issues, because match play requires another team to play against. 7 teams means someone will have to sit out every six holes, and even then it will get extremely complicated.

We're organizing a clean-up day on Thursday to get Hickory looking nice for the big tournament this weekend. We will be starting around 10am, and should be there most of the day. We need all of the help we can get, even if it's just for an hour. Some folks have said they will be showing up in the evening after work, so if that's an option for you, we'd love to see you there.
