First actual JCH meet n greet, drink n play, charity thing...
« on: August 07, 2014, 04:28:58 PM »
So here is the deal...

There is this thing called  a Hundred Hole Hike(http://hundredholehike.com) and I have wanted to do it since I heard about it a few years ago.  Mentioned it to the wife, and she said find a place you want to go that you can participate and have at it...

I thought it would be quite a cool thing if a bunch of us folks actually got off our asses to meet face to face and have a good time.  What better way than with a charitable event like this.  We have joked about it in other threads, but I am talking a year out figure in August of 2015 so we could actually plan accordingly.

The reason I am posting here now, partially see previous paragraph, and there are not a lot of courses that host this type of thing and I am hoping to be able to muster enough people to participate to make it compelling for some course to do it.  I have started talking to one of them to see if they will be participating in 2015.

What I know so far:
You don't have to walk all 100 holes, you can set whatever goal you want and strive to achieve it.
You do have to walk, barring a true physical ailment(RhoudyLax and brown water OD does not count)
Assume it will be a weekend away at a minimum, longer for Intl if you want it to.
Figure on flight, hotel and food so not cheap to start
Collectively we can pick a charity to donate to.


So right now there is no obligation just trying to see if there would be interest and if so how many.  Please, if you have no real intent please don't pretend you do...

I can appreciate distance... 

Consider turning it into a longer vacation with this as part of it. For me it is more a time thing but with a year to plan I am, committable, committed to doing it.

A little pre mature for that. Want to get a rough count before really pushing. Given it is a year out figure the possibilities are still open.

Glad to hear you might join.

I definitely think we could arrange something like this, and I am all for it, hopefully we can get a sizable group of commitments to it and make it work.

Great to have you join in.

On the venue front, I am going to wait a little to see how much interest there is before I shop for a locale.  But agreed on a vacation destination type if many are going to bring families...

I'm discouraging families (around the golf) I will need a pharmacy and plenty of brown water not to mention rhoudylax to walk that many holes...

Maybe even a couple of Pervys "support staff" as well...just to help me from the course to the wheel chair...

Is squirts in?  If so I'll really have to rally the troops

I like the charity angle as well!  You gotta give the wives a mental out on deals like this...genius!  Those oracle developers are handy fellows...
