We tested a hole at the City Park course on Saturday (11/8) for the tournament. I promise you have never seen the course look like this before! The layout called for about 2,000 glow we're using 3,000! This is going to be one to remember! Also, if what City Park is telling us is true (it isn't always), the course is being moved to the new location just days after this event. So this will probably be the last tournament at the current location! Time to register!

Mr. Crawfish, would it be "threatening" if I asked you what kind of cool prizes you are awarding to the best players at this groundbreaking event?

I bet since this tournament is in New Orleans it's gonna be splendid. Hope I didn't scare anyone.

Why yes you may, Mr. Bluff Magee! I'm sure you read the "tournament details" at the top, but I'll be happy to say it again for those who didn't read it.

First off, 3,000 glow sticks to decorate the beautiful course we have there at City Park - that's enough to give you retina damage if you're not careful out there.

Prizes you asked? There will be plenty! All Ams get a tournament stamped disc and 2 LED lights to adhere to your discs for the night round. More lights will be available to purchase. My very own momma, who is a wonderful cook by the way, is helping out with the grub; so your belly should be nice and full for the night round. Oh, and free beer if you're over 21! We'll be giving away a combination of discs, LED lights, T-shirts, DISCarrier bags and plenty more to all our division winners! But the payouts don't stop there, oh no indeed! Did you know last year's event had a 158% payout? Not a typo! Feel free to ask any of last year's attendants about the payouts too. We like to let our past results speak for themselves! This year we're going to top 150% again! If you think that's because us here in New Orleans are crazy, you may not be wrong! Can we get crazier? Oh yes we can! If we top 72 players for the event, we are giving away a DISCatcher Sport. Just giving it away to one of the players via raffle. Silliness, I know. Otherwise, we'll just raffle it off with the rest of the cool swag. Between rounds we'll have FREE, yes FREE, side games for you to win more free stuff. Discs, LEDs, shirts and maybe even Kernan's car! So come on out to City Park on November 22nd. You don't want to miss this!!!!

You catch that loud and clear there, Bluff?

Free Beer? That's all you had to say!

Someone asked, so I'll post for all for clarity.

Pro Divisions will be at least 100% ALL CASH payouts. I'll try to splash the pot the best I can, but I won't know until game day as to what that extra amount will be. I'll will go ahead and say that $100 at the minimum will go to Open from my own pocket.

One more day until the tournament! Looks like the threat of rain has been pushed back to early Sunday morning, so I think we should be pretty good during the tournament!

Thanks to everyone that attended Parked in the Dark II. I had a great time, and I truly hope everyone that attended did as well. I'll post the scores and payouts sometime tomorrow (Tuesday). Had a very busy weekend, and the Who Dats play tonight!!! I'd love to hear feedback on the event (both positive and negative), so we can try to out do ourselves again next year. There are tons of people I'd like to thank for the event (and will); but for now I'd really like to point out my two MVPs, Joe Burback and Andrew Crosby, for really stepping when I needed it. Things wouldn't have worked out as well as they did if those 2 guys weren't out there. A lot of people may not notice the little things getting done, but I can't thank y'all enough for the help. It didn't go unnoticed, and I really appreciate it!

All that said, I told y'all my mom's cooking is the best! How about that food?!?!?!?!?

Great tourney, Johnny. It was exceptionally well run and a ton of fun. The food was fantastic, the wind was windy and the rain held off. I am not the biggest fan of golfing in the dark, but the lights put out by you and your able crew and the ambient light from downtown and the stadium lights made getting around the course quite easy.

Congrats to JaVo on his open win and to Mikey for his Masters victory! Congrats to all the winners and participants!

On the positive side, the beer was quite refreshing. The raffle and auction provided much value. The food was delicious.

On the other side, perhaps the time of the tournament could be improved, by having the lights set up earlier.

Noted. Thanks Mike. By the way, go ahead and add Kernan and Jason Volo to my "Thanks for stepping up and helping out list". Not having to worry about scores coming in was great, and J Vo was the last one out there with me helping me load up the car. Scores and results will be posted by tomorrow.

Sorry for the delay on the scores! Birthday/Saints game/Thanksgiving in Pensacola/8 rounds at Gulf Breeze in 53 hours/general procrastination are to blame. I hope everyone had a great time as I surely did. Thanks for all the birthday wishes on my 18 down (36th) birthday! With the way things look with the park, next year's tournament should be held at the new course. The new location is SO MUCH darker at night than the current location which should make for a much better glow effect. I'm looking into permanent, year-round options to make the course baskets lit every single night of the year. I think it's reasonable to think this will be in place for next years tournament as well. I've had a blast running this tournament the last 2 years, and I really think next year's Parked in the Dark is going to be insane! Thanks to all the participants! Oh, and for anyone who ever thinks about not putting in for the ace pot, be warned: Novice winner Austin Ritchey DID NOT put in for the ace pot and hit his first ever ace in the tournament. To add to the coolness of his first ever ace was that it came during the night round (Hole #7 - Old hole #15 for those not familiar with the new lay out yet)! See y'all next year for Parked in the Dark III:?????????????????????????.

It might be hard to notice this with Parked in the Dark only being held for 2 years now, but the annual tournament will have a new theme name, catch phrase or whatever you want to call it each year. Please post any suggestions you may have for future year's tournaments as the names are proving tough to come up with. Last 2 year's are as follows:

Parked in the Dark I: The Glow Throw in N.O. (2013)
Parked in the Dark II: Flight in the Night (2014)
Parked in the Dark III: ????????????????? (2015)
