9 Feb

I just wanted to let everyone know that we are looking for some of your best “Blue Note Open” pics from last weekend…Send us pics of your teams, some golfing, favorite golf holes and pics of y’all just having fun! Please send them in jpeg format-and they possibly will be posted here on our website, and possibly even used in a upcoming “BluesFlash!” (Our Blues Society Newsletter). Please make sure that its ok with your friends that we do this before you send your pics to me-because after I receive them-I will assume that you are releasing your pics to us to use as we desire…I will work on getting something going in the next few weeks to get some of these shots posted-so keep an eye out for them, here on quincyblues.com!
