Baton Rouge has always had 8 tournaments. But now Toad has a couple. I think that is why Will has decided to have the LA States be a traveling tourney. This is a good idea. Lafayette has a great course and they know how to run a really good tournament. Mikey only has a 2-3 a year, but the Mardi Gras Madness is a tournament you don't want to miss.
As far as the special ones:
FEB 22,23 - MARDI GRAS MADNESS - RIVENDELL - ST ROSE, LA - B-TIER
MAR 1 - CAP CITY OPEN - HIGHLAND - BATON ROUGE

thanks for pointing out the errors in the dates... that is why i put them up here in an effort to get folks to help check for errors before a "finished list"
as far as the Florence / W. C. Handy is posted on teh 6th, this is a Wednesday?.... the 6th stands for the sixth annual... and according to the guy that emailed the event to me it is not yet a "firm" date...
again, thanks for the assistance... it gets kind of confusing there are so many events...
i will make the corrections you point out to the "master list" i'm working on...
VL, I'm probably the guy who e-mailed you the info about the W.C. Handy event, unless it was Bill. You're correct. It is the 6th (Sixth) Annual and I can only assume (safely, I hope) that we will once again have this event. It's a one day that is usually held during the W.C. Handy Music Festival, itself a good enough reason to come to the Shoals.
I don't know who posted the info about the Alabama State Disc Championships. It was in May 2002, but we have yet to determine which city will host it (Florence, Huntsville, Birmingham or Mobile(?). As soon as that's decided I or someone else will forward a date.
The Spring Fling-It has probably been in March, with one or two exceptions, in March since 1983!
I'm running the Ice Bowl on Jan. 18 so that date is correct. I also e-mailed Jim about this one.
VL, That date has not been set, but if we need to set one this early, I can talk to Kyle and see which weekend he wants to have it. It's usually the last week of the festival, so first I'll have to find out when the last day is. Complicated, Huh? I really don't want to speak for him at this point, so give me a little time. I believe I heard that the festival was being moved up a week because school was starting earlier. That would mean the festival would end on Saturday Aug. 2. But don't go with that till I can confirm something. It could be that we wouldn't want to set the date because our course might not be here and our new one might not be in the ground yet. But now I'm really getting off the subject and into one that deserves its own thread <G> Thanks, Russ >C
