    Hi everyone,

    Sadly it's that time of year again...the end of the annual Andyson Memorial Tournament, run brilliantly, once again, by Shedlite. I wasn't able to play this year due to personal reasons but a lot of my friends did and they haven't stopped talking about it, they all said they had a great time and made some new friends. So again, kudos to Shedlite for a wonderful event.

    On the bright-side, those participants that finished the first two rounds of stroke-play will receive a little memento to remember this years event by. So, each of those participants (listed below) will receive a real life golf ball marker (shown above) in the mail. You can use it on the golf course in real life if you play, if you don't play you can keep it in the corner of your monitor to remember our friend by as you play the game.

    A quick note about the marker design for those of you not in the know. Dennis "Andyson" Anderson's obituary asked that in lieu of flowers...donations be sent to springerrescue.org. Hence the cute dog with the floppy ears and the url.

    I would personally like the thank whooshdangit for graciously donating his time to help design this years marker...thank you Rich!

    Here is the list of players that will be receiving a marker this year. Read through the list carefully, it's in alphabetical order, but there are a few names at the bottom that are out of order-

    Got no further than I did last year but had a blast playing. Once again, a superb effort by all involved, and many congratulations to the two very worthy winners!

    A fitting tribute to Dennis, much missed.

    At this rate it will take us about six months to send these gifts out to players if we can't keep it on the front page for players to see.
