Lancaster makes PGA Tour

That's Poor Golfer's Association!

It is an event that draws people who have rarely played games before, as well as most (but not all) of the Board of Directors who have played games 14 hours a day since the first Avaloncon in 1991.

It is an event where Yoshikawa, Mitchell and Stein prove yearly that none of them can roll dice.

It is an event where even Reverend Hunsinger can taste the thrill of victory, then come back the next year and suffer the agony of defeat.

It is an event that makes Don Greenwood shake his head in wonder at folly of the human race.

That's Pro Golf! Come to either get all those bad dice rolls out of your system before the rest of the week, or hope to ride your current wave of die roll luck to become the Tiger Woods of the WBC.

The Thursday late night die rolling tradition lives on. All players will play the first 18 holes on the newly lengthened 2002 Augusta National course, using the long MI tee on hole #12.

All golfers used again this year will be from 2003, 2004 and 2005 golfer cards. That means there will be three Tiger Woods cards in play this year, plus many other golfers fans of the sport may recognize over the old time legends of the original game.
The four lowest scores will be matched for a skins game Final on the first 12 holes of the Lancaster Host Golf Resort (the course found on the grounds of the Lancaster Host, site of the World Boardgaming Championships).

Any ties for determining the four Skins game players will be resolved using a sudden death playoff beginning on the back nine of Pebble Beach.

If the Skins Game is tied after 12 holes, sudden death will be played between the tied players only starting on hole #13 at the Lancaster Host Golf Resort.

ALL players will be required to use courses provided by the GM.

First edition rules will be used, which means we are not using the Trouble or Gambling rules, nor will the roll of doubles allow players to ignore parenthesized negative modifiers to shots as in the second edition.

Even if you don't compete in the tournament or advance past the preliminary round, you might want to hang around to observe the Skins game Final. It's played with big foam dice that can be viewed by all in the theater setting of the Hopewell room. A commentator will even be providing a shot by shot account over the PA system. Spectators have more fun than the participants since they don't have the pressure of halving the hole to keep their plaque hopes alive. Occasionally, a birthday cake shows up!
