Please let me have your comments, if any, on your own proposed handicap and those of others, prior to them being cast in stone for Day 1 by imperial decree of the tour handicap committee. Excessive handicap whingeing could result in a ‘Tour Tosser’ nomination, or worse…..
Handicaps will be adjusted for Day 2 – up or down by a maximum of 2 and up to a 28 limit, depending on how you played against your Day 1 handicap.


Yours truly will sponsor a trophy for the 2 Day Competition. Any other contributions are welcomed! Strongly suggest everyone brings along something to contribute to the Tour – either additional competition prizes or something for quaffing during the Tour.
