Reminder to please register early. Also, I will start to post advance entries here, which will for the most part have the March supplement rating. We will be using the April supplement rating for the tournament. Please remember the Challenge is in Oshkosh this year. We have arranged with the hotel to serve food at lunch and again at dinner (burgers, hotdogs, chili, pizza slices - this type of food) since the rounds move fast and players will not have time to seek food elsewhere. Thanks for playing in our tournament and look forward to seeing you in Oshkosh on April 7.

Nice venue in Oshkosh with the exception of the food shortage. Hopefully, the hotel learned a lesson. Thanks to Chris and Robin for a well run tournament!
