Update on the Blue Note Open…

28 Jan

Update on the Blue Note Open…Things are rolling for this year’s event, here’s some of the establishments that we’ve got lined up so far. Of course-The Casino Starlite Terrace is the start and finish point for the event. Also, here’s some of the others: Hooey’s, The Blind Pig, The Club Tavern, Cedar Club, The North End Tavern, Cougar’s Den, Heartland Saloon, The Place, Martini’s @ 515, and O’Shea’s..There may be one or two more-but right now, this gives everyone 11 possibilities for 9 holes. Get your teams registered, the forms are pouring in the mail as I write this.

It’s gonna be another great year, and a fun event, and remember-you no longer need to have “The Best” competitive team to win a cash prize-all you have to do is complete 9 holes, and return to the Starlite with your scorecard by 6:30pm to have a chance for your team to win one of 5 $100 Prizes! See you there!

9 Jan


The date for the 2013 BLUE NOTE OPEN INDOOR GOLF EVENT has been set!

We will be holding the event on SATURDAY FEBRUARY 9TH 2013, with the host establishment being the CASINO STARLITE NIGHTCLUB, AT 20TH & CEDAR IN QUINCY.

As you know, this is our indoor golf tournament (an annual fundraiser for the Blues Society). We are continuing with the CHANGES to the event that we made last year, and want to remind you of…
Since you have participated in the past, we thank you, and you understand how the basic premise of how the event works. BUT-this year, we’re continuing with the BIG CHANGES that we’ve implemented…
FIRST-We’ve upped the PRIZE MONEY! We are awarding $500.00 in cash prizes this year!  Five Teams will win $100 each! AND-We’re planning on having MORE THAN 9 HOLES for you this year! (To help teams complete 9 holes this year). AND-Low Scores don’t matter-(except for team bragging rights, ultimately participation does). WHAT does this mean? Please read on, I’ll explain it all to you…
To qualify to win prize money this year-here’s what your team needs to do….


At approximately 6:45pm-Blue Note Open Staff will draw out 5 Teams Scorecards, and EACH TEAM’S SCORECARD that is drawn WILL WIN $100 for each winning team!

ANY QUALIFYING TEAM CAN NOW BE A WINNER! AND-we’ve added more holes to make it easier for every team to complete nine holes!

If you are interested in being involved in this year’s event, you know what you need to do…First-you need to round up your team members, and explain to them that you (now more than ever) actually has a chance to win money this year! Then, get your team’s entry fee turned in asap-we do need to know how many teams to plan for. We’d like to have your entry fee by Friday February 4th  2013. If you can’t get it in until the day of the event, you are taking a chance, because with the new rules, we’re planning on having a full event, and we might have to cut off entries if we feel we are overloading the event. (Though-we will accept additional teams-as space permits).

We do appreciate your continued participation in this event, as this is our organizations biggest fundraiser of the year.  If you have any questions, and you need to contact me, I will try to answer any question that you may have. Also, we’ll try to let know what establishments will be having food available for purchase, so your team can get a bite throughout the day.
Also included with your signup sheet, is a Basic Rules sheet, please familiarize yourself, and your teammates with these, as to assist you on the big day!  And mail your team completed entry form, and payment to: MMMWBS, PO Box 887, Quincy IL 62306
