If I thought that would do it, I would...unfortunately it's a big conference and I am on 2 panels...so I am out of luck getting out of this one.

If I wasn't a starving college student and had my regular salary from my internship that begins in May, I'd jump on this. Have family down in the area I'd love to see.

While I was fortunate enough to be an alternate, I still can't believe this is happening this late in the game. My spot opened up in Sept / Oct.

This makes life very tough for the organizers and the facilities. Maybe there should be a cut off date in the future that stipulates no refunds after a certain date. That would at least guarantee the event costs based on entrants or something. Then if someone absolutely HAS to drop out, they can sell their spot (AT COST), thus alleviating the stress on organizers.

Just a thought...

I echo the sentiments that I hope the person who had to drop out is OK.

UGH! This is getting harder and harder to pass up by the minute, especially with spots opening up this late. GEEZ! If I thought I could swing it financially at this point, I would be there so fast, your head would spin. There is just no way I can swing the cost right now. *kicking self*

For those who are wishing they could swing it financially, I may have a solution for you.

Well...........hmmmmmm. Just glancing at the list, skull and teeth are ruled out because I hate my teeth and nobody would want them. Shoulder? Might come in handy on this adventure. Liver? That was shot long ago (it was sponsored by Southern Comfort and Coke). I could probably do some blood, maybe a few inches of skin. I don't need a spleen, do I? One of those.

Wow, that sucks. If I had a way down from Ottawa I'd beg to be included. Hopefully you find somebody today! Hope the dropout is okay and it's nothing too serious.

I'd recommend maybe a kidney or an eye. Preferably the eye that lines you up for bad shots. Sell that to a non-golfer and you're all set man.

Well, I certainly hope that whomever decides to join, goes 100% intact and doesn't have to sell limbs out of a van down by the river. LOL. Hopefully someone is able to jump on this very soon. Hell of an opportunity, one many of us wish we could take part in right now.

Thanks for the idea, but I've actually looked into all the airports nearby, and nothing works out, especially if I'd be paying the 300 per night :( If it was in the summer (I'm a supply teacher - my whole family's from Sydney Mines btw) I'd drive down and make a whole trip of it (my wife and I are campers). Enjoy! Very jealous.

Sorry to hear that we have to go through this again. Hope it wasn't something super serious. I guess next year it will be a smaller event and there will be people who are shut out because of this type of thing.

I should go to the Outing. Too bad I can't. I'd really like to.
