A little bit of news with this update.
The days are melting away but the snow is not. We’ve actually made it to March. We did have another person drop out of the competition, Doug announced he couldn’t make it. His spot on The Rest of the World team has been filled by JK or Jozef, most of you are well aware of his golfing prowess. He has been away for a couple years, last competing for CR/Blaine in 2011 at the 9th President’s Cup at Cragun’s Resort. Welcome back Jozef.
Believe it or not it looks like we are still waiting on people to pay the $100 deposit.
Player profiles will be appearing shortly for our new additions or returning players.
Hopefully in about 30 days the people who want to can get out and swing the clubs.
It started in mid-December when Jensen notified us that he would be unable to make the 2014 President’s Cup. It carried over into the new year when Welte made his announcement. Then I was made aware that two original members of the President’s Cup Group were unable to make it, Steel and Spears. Mosley then announced that he has scheduling conflicts and cannot appear this year. Reed, another original member, is the most recent person to announce he cannot make it.
Needless to say this has been a punch to the gut.
The good news is Brand is back after a year away. Witt has joined The Rest of the World team and is continuing a growing contingent from St. Cloud.
So we continue to march on with 28 players. The plan is to stay with that number. So if we have more casualties we will attempt to fill in the spots. This does not affect the cost of lodging.
As always let me know if you are unable to attend please let me know as soon as possible.
That may seem like a lot, but really its only 3.5 months. We can begin to think of better, warmer, sunnier days in the not too distant future.

I’m sure a lot of you are going to the MN Golf Show at the Convention Center this weekend. . . See you there.

The minimum $100 deposit payment is due by 2/27/14 (ONLY 15 DAYS LEFT). The contact information to do so is: Breezy Point reservations department at 1-800-432-3777 ext. 7160. Pay more if you’d like.
We’ve only got to suffer through about 45 more crappy days until we get to dust off the clubs and start hitting knock down sand wedges, bunted drivers and 97 foot double-bogey putts.
I want you there, we need you there, but if you can’t make it please notify me.
We have a bus set up to pick us up at the Cabin’s at Deacon’s Lodge Friday AM at approximately 7:30am. They will pick us up at Golden Eagle at approximately 9pm. I will have the driver’s cell phone and give him a call when we are ready for pickup. The cost will be around $30 for each person round trip (depending on how many we have).
We have 121 days to the 2014 President’s Cup.
As always let me know if you cannot make it.
The Rest of the World team has had some changes to contend with over the last month.
Welte has let it be known that he is out for the 12th edition of the President’s Cup. Another guy having more kids.
This has required the Rest of the World team to locate a replacement, and the search has been done.
Please welcome Witt.
A player profile will be coming in the near future.

Happy New Year from the Prezzy Cup Offices.
Not a bad view out the Prezzy Cup windows.
We are officially 147 days away from teeing it off at Golden Eagle Golf Club in Fifty Lakes, MN. It will go by faster than you think. Information will begin to flow in the coming months as things become clearer. Again the dates for the 2014 Prezzy Cup are Friday May 30th and Saturday May 31st. With lodging set up for check-in Thursday through check-out Sunday.
There has been a little change to the Rest of the World team, Brand is back and Jensen is out. Brand missed last year and doesn’t plan to again, a player profile will be coming too. Jensen is out to attend a wedding in Chicago.
The real view out the Prezzy Cup offices windows.
I came across this at a restaurant in my travels for work. It was right next to the restrooms too. Some steak and sushi restaurant.
