TGT 2009 will officially kick off on Sunday Feb. 22nd. Plan to be there by 2pm at the latest. For those of you who can make it, we are planning on being there on Saturday the 21st.
As The Honored Mate this year I would like to start what I
hope will become a tradition for years to come. Actually, Bob really started it last year with giving back to
Mexico. So, here it is… This year as part of the built-in
cost of the trip, $50.00 from each TGT member is going to go to a charity of
choice by the honored mate. I know this is not a lot of cash, but $350-$500 to someone or some group
is a big chunk. This year’s
donation will be made in Honor of our fallen mate, Randy Lunsford. I am up for suggestions as to
where we should donate.
Grab your Skis, Knuckle boards, warm clothes and a set off
golf clubs boyz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
keep cost down this year we will be cooking breakfast/dinners at the cabin for all
but one night. Lunch will be on
the slopes or golf course. Two of
the nights you will see Mr. Ellenwood of 500MPH Productions showcasing his recent film debuts, one night will be a TGT poker tourney at the
cabin and one night is a group crap tourney at a casino (more info given at the
cabin about this event, an Opening Ceremony (New
Rules, Yes!!!) for the New Honored
mate and an Awards/Closing Ceremony Friday night.

TGT 2009 Award:
Well, here is
the skinny, I liked Bob’s trophy idea and wanted to keep the spirit alive. So, every morning we will be having a lottery drawing for your ski partner for the day. Everyone needs a digital camera for proof. Each team will earn points that
each partner will carry over individually into the next day with their new
More to come on accumulating points….
