On this inspiring sun-washed morning, I'd just like to point out something I've noticed as this wild MFC experiment has continued to tumble forward:
Something sort of odd has been unfolding. Every one of us is contributing a lot to making this thing go. A partial list of peeps and accomplishments:
Erin built the course, designed the B course, started the blog, got his talented art-designer Mom to design us a killer logo, schools us all on how to play, and constantly boggles us with that arm.
Matthew had the initial idea of the MFC and spearheaded the whole gig, is our unofficial president, handles the handicapping, and loves to say Eeeleven.
Ryan has hosted numerous tourneys at his old property, and holds the holy grail of the tournament three-peat, the ethereal goal which recedes before the rest of us like Mendo fog in October.
Davey is the ace-pot czar, the first-ever tourney ace-maker, and unofficial MFC cheerleader during tourneys.
I got the bag-tags up and running, as well as providing a baseline level of logo coolness with the scrawl of the 18th hole scene. That's right.
Nate has the clubhouse in Mendo, collects membership cash, hosts poker parties, was the clearinghouse for the logo entrants, and continues to pioneer the use of the super-long-driver as a putter.
Derrick has blazed on the Icebowl, as well as pulling together a viable set of bagtag rules, and having a world-class pastry chef for a girlfriend.
AJ and Vince help rock the Thursday doubles rounds in Fort Bragg, extending the reach of the MFC into foreign lands.
The Linzenator owns the coolest tourney ace on record, as well as one of the best tourney chick rounds ever, and keeps the boys honest.
The Brodys contribute off-the-charts positive energy when they are around, as well as owning the chick record, and being the first to post MFC-related videos on youtube ~and~ produce an MFC sticker.
On top of all that, we all bring in CTPs, and we'll all end up eventually hosting a special tourney.
Usually with things like this, you've got one or two people keeping the thing together, without which everything would disappear. With our gig, I feel like half the people on this list could leave the country for a year, and they could return with everything intact and grooving along, with meetings having been held, membership having grown, important improvements having been made, etc.. It's like everyone is carrying a piece of this thing, and everyone knows it. Like an all-star team or something. It's cool shit, is all I'm saying.
Just wanted to testify.
