Rebel Beach AM-AM 2021

I've really been slacking writing articles for the chapter, so I'd be open to having any of our local Shakespeares take over author duties!

We are just days away from kicking off the 2021 season for the Rebel Beach AM-AM at StoneWater Golf Club on Saturday, April 17th at 12:30pm. I can't wait to welcome everyone back, as well as this year's new members. It's going to be a great year with some really amazing courses and hopefully no Covid! I'll be displaying my vaccine card proudly so everyone can feel comfortable talking to your Chapter Leader this season.

We will be holding our award ceremony this season after the round, so be sure to stick around and grab some food and drinks. I'll also be handing out stickers for participating which can earn you a free MGA shirt!

We have some updates to this year's Long Drive/Closest to the Pin challenge. Jon Wallace over at Toledo was kind enough to share how they do things over in the Glass City, and I really like their Jackpot format, so we will be adopting that this season.

The Closest to the Pin will take place on Hole 6 and the Longest Drive will take place on Hole 12.

The new format will work like this:

LONG DRIVE / CLOSEST TO THE PIN JACKPOT

Current Jackpot Value
$00.00

Entry Fee: $1.00**

Rules
- If you win the Long Drive contest AND Birdie the hole, you hit the jackpot.
- If you win the Closest Pin contest AND Birdie the hole, you hit the jackpot.
- If you Eagle ANY hole on the course during the round, you hit the jackpot.

- If multiple people hit the jackpot at the same event, the entire jackpot carries over to the next event.
- If nobody manages to hit the jackpot at an event, the entire jackpot carries over to the next event.

** You must be paid up to be eligible. If the jackpot has gone 4 events without being hit and you decide you want to get in at the next event after not getting in any of the first 4 events, you will have to pay $5 to enter the jackpot at the next event. If you got in the first 2 events, missed the next 2 events and want back in, you'll need $3 to get in. If you have gotten in all 4 events that it has been building up, you'll only owe the $1 at the next event.
