KBaird Event 2.0
« on: July 16, 2007, 06:38:10 PM »

Not sure who's in the areas or even which folder at Golfhos this would go in, so ...

Kevin Baird (KBaird) passed away on October 26, 2004.  [FGI tribute page [link=http://www.freegolfinfo.com/kbaird.asp]here[/link].]  As the linked page tells, Kevin was a one-in-a-million guy.  Friendly, honest, helpful, generous, positive -- for every word, Kevin was the first person who popped into our heads.  I'm not alone in feeling that Kevin's example has helped people become kinder, gentler people.

To remember Kevin, inconsistant suggested a memorial tournament in Kevin's home state of Texas back in 2005.  With a good number of FGIers out here in North Carolina, I suggested a parallel event here, with some friendly competition between the two groups.  Setup and recap threads are here:


Planning kicked off too late in the year in 2006 to get one done.  Well, sir, we're three months out from October, which is a nice time weather-wise for these locales.  Inconsistant and I need time to lock in courses, so I'm posting this now to see what we have to work with.

Cost is usually greens fees plus a $5 donation to KBaird's charities.  It's my understanding that both charities work with under-privileged and/or at-risk youths.  As well, it's a great way to meet other FGIers, play some golf, tell some tales, and remember a guy whose participation really made this forum special.

TEXAS FOLKS: Please post or email inconsistant with your preliminary interest.

NORTH/SOUTH CAROLINA FOLKS: Please post or email me with your preliminary interest.  I have some leeway to site the event (anywhere in the Durham-Gastonia-Charlotte triangle, depending on who's interested).

If you got peeps, organize a little get-together in your locale.  The more, the merrier.

Obviously the areas don't work out for me, but I'm happy to make a $5-$10 donation to the specified charity. Let me know how.

Do you want to be my peep? 

We might as well shoot for a bona fide event.  My cousin will play and perhaps we can get campy down.  If your brother and father want to play perhaps we can get two foursomes involved.  I have one other guy who would probably join in with a bit of notice.

What the hell, I didn't know KB or interact with him much but it's golf and charity.  What's not to like?   Smiley

I'm thinking Chambers Bay for some of the PacNW guys.

This will be one of the last 2 weekends in October, IIRC...

Sure, I can be your peep. I can probably get my brother to play. Dad tore a ligament and dislocated a tendon in his left shoulder so he won't be playing for a while. Count me in as a tentative 2.

Once you determine dates for the NC event, I'll take a looksee - 2 trips in October.  I'd love to get up there for a round of golf.  The last 6 months have not been kind to the golf game (huge work project for 3 months, buy a house, trying to sell a house, birth of child 2...).  I think I've been out once this year.  Can't think of a better reason to get out for round #2.
