I have received a request from a strong player in Portland to ask if I would see if there was anyone from his area who would like to do a carpool to the event... Silverdale Beach Hotel Classic... I'd love to have his participation. The more, the merrier..
You might enjoy the ride/share and the tourney. Get in touch with me, and I'll put you together. This takes place March 10-11. It's in a hotel with discounts and deadlines. So some advance planning is required. Not the good old last minute thing.
