Here is some more details concerning the August Bag Tag challenge.
It will be at Flyboy Aviation (Whitesburg, GA) on Sunday August 14.
Coordinates: 33-34-23N, 84-54-35W
Address: 254 Consolation Church Rd, Whitesburg, GA, 30185

viewtopic.php?f=44&t=2398

Kelly Leggett has agreed to open the course for the day.
For those who have never played Flyboy, this means he has waived the normal $5 course fee. Flyboy is currently the #1 rated DG course in the US. When you play it, you will see why it received this rating. You will also realize it takes a lot more than a $5/person course fee for Kelly to maintain the course. Let's show our appreciation to him by placing some $'s in the donation jar in the hanger area.
Everyone will still need to sign a waiver form when they arrive. It is required to play the course.

VERY IMPORTANT: I need to give Kelly an approximate head count. Please send an email to me (stevebadams@comcast.net) if you plan to attend. The sooner the better, but please let me know by the weekend before (e.g. by Aug 7). If your email address doesn’t clearly indicate who you are, please include your first & last name in the email.

Flyboy is a private course that winds throughout the neighborhood where Kelly (and many others) live. We need to be very respectful of that while on the course.
There is also an active runway. Everyone needs to be aware of possible plane landings or takeoffs while around that area. Planes have the right-of-way.
Prior to our start, either Kelly, Brad Orman, or one of the other Flyboy helpers will provide some basic rules concerning course conduct and getting our groups organized. Please be at the hanger by 8:15AM so you don't miss any of this.

The course is 27 holes, approx 17,000ft, and plays as a par 95. Plan on a 4-5 hour round. There will be some water on the course, but fill up your bottles before we start. Bring food to eat while on the course. There are 7 holes that have water in play. Bring a couple of extra discs (drivers) just in case.
NOTE: There are a few paths between holes that are not very cart friendly.

We will have a shotgun start as close to 9AM as possible.
Groupings will be based on each person’s bag tag ranking at that time.

Kelly indicated they will provide an after-round lunch for everyone. It will include a sandwich, chips, and a drink. Cost will be $5.

Kelly has a Bed & Breakfast (in the hangar), as well as indoor & outdoor camping available for those who prefer to drive there Saturday. Hot showers are available to campers. Verify the pricing and availability with Kelly, but I believe he indicated the following
• Bed & Breakfast = $65 per night
• Indoor camping – in the Trading Post = $15 per night
• Outdoor camping - in the grass by the hanger = $10 per night

To restate the importance of our conduct while playing Flyboy:
Flyboy is a private course that winds throughout the neighborhood where Kelly (and many others) live. We need to be very respectful of that while on the course. Plan to pack your trash out with you. Be aware that other homeowners may be around you at any point during play. This is their property. Thank them for allowing us to use it.

I’m sure there are things I’m forgetting. Let me know if you have any questions.

Don't you think you should reschedule since there's action at McCurry this Sunday? Being in such close proximity could mess with attendance at either doubles. Please think about the ramifications and act accordingly on this.

I doubt if all of the folks that play dubs have a bag tag. My understanding is that Flyboy is for tag holders.
Perhaps Steve can advise since he is the tag master.

That is correct. Currently no one who attends Sunday Dubs at McCurry on a regular basis is an Atlanta Bag Tag holder. Shouldn't have a conflict.

If you didn't recognize, that was just a joke and hope it didn't get anyone's skivies wadded up.

I'd like to warm up a bit before the action. Mostly short shots & putting.
