By the first week of May, Costa Plenti accommodation balances ($200) and golf entry fees ($400) should be deposited into the President's Cayman Island account (details sent by email). Use your surname as the payment reference and if you're especially computer literate, send President Love a text or email when you have completed the transaction. The usual suspects can pay cash on arrival.
A reminder to all that last year's tour shirt (red for those that didn't attend) is the uniform for Day 1 at Gosford. As to playing numbers, we look like having a minimum of 21 for the week with Garry Mize helping out on the teams days if required. Beyond that, we'll know more on the tee Monday morning.
If you are up there early for the sea-level acclimatisation program, there will be a get together with some ex-Lewisham students and others at the Norah Head Sports Club from 2pm Saturday. The club has betting and bistro facilities and all members are welcome to attend.

Private sanctuary and cultural oasis, the Costa Plenti Estate, will host 13 residents during 'The 30 for 30 Tour'.
Messrs Love, Fulke, Hayes, Montgomerie, Kent, Olazabal, Baird, Fatcatsson, Crenshaw, Haas, Waldorf, Stenson and Professor Emeritus Blue "6 Card" Sheedy B.Eu (Hons), the club's onsite gaming manager and croupier, have been allocated a much sought after bed in the luxury, secured compound.
Four apartments have been booked, 2 at Coast Luxury (including Casino Royale) and 2 at Riviera. Room allocations will be done early May.

After receiving notices of withdrawal from Garry Mize and prominent legal identity Tack Nicklaus, WS XXX will likely have 22 players.
As well as Mize and Nicklaus other notable absentees from last year's tourists are Grantief Goosen and Paulking Harrington. These scratchings have been slightly offset by the confirmed return of 3-time winner JPY Hayes and the likely return of 1995 champion Big Jack 'The African' Daley.
Daley's mooted return has put organisers on notice like Michael Caine in Zulu and led President Love to include The African natural disaster options (pestilence, war, famine and death) in our tournament public liability policy. The ESG&EC has written to The Entrance Chamber of Commerce, the local constabulary and Blue Bay liquor outlets alerting them to Big Jack's probable reappearance.
The week long extravaganza, incorporating two sanctioned World Series events, has been christened 'The 30 for 30 Tour'.

Beercoin has been announced as the ESG&EC's digital currency and local payment system. This exciting new cryptocurrency is underpinned by keg-to-tap-to-peer technology.
After a soft launch at the Earlwood Hotel last night, the club has mined 1,040 coins - one for every entrant in our two golf majors over nearly 30 years. The cornerstone of Beercoin's value is the price The Entrance Hotel charges club members for a schooner of Resch's served during our annual May golf pilgrimage.
The Central Coast schooner impost has been rising faster than Sydney house prices and has been a boon to those astute insiders who got in early on the crypto bandwagon. Beercoin has a market capitalisation in excess of AUD60 million (1 Entrance Hotel Resch's schooner = 1/10,001 Beercoin).
Beercoins can be stored in a digital wallet and used to pay for tournament entry fees, Costa Plenti accommodation, prizemoney and shouts of beer. The club's first Beercoin recipient, President Davidson Love III, has become an overnight Beercoin multi-millionaire with his bulging wallet of 56 coins - one for each of his tournament appearances. Wallets will be issued to eligible members in a market sensitive manner and at President Love's discretion.

At his 29th attempt, Java Haas has finally won the Match Play Championship after seeing off the challenge of Kenny Crenshaw 2 up.
As a contest, the match was entertaining but as an advertisement for the skills of our golf club, it maintained a well-earned reputation for poor performances at the final hurdle.
Java's long overdue victory gives him entry to a very select group - he becomes the 10th member to have completed the coveted home and away double.
The World Series of Euchre will be played on May 16 at The Entrance Hotel Euchredome during the World Series of Golf.
The knock-out event is held after Wednesday's races and begins with the all important draw for partners conducted by Blue "Six Card" Sheedy B.Eu (Hons), the Earlwood Euchre University's professor emeritus. According to the wily old matchmaker last year's winners, Tubby Waldorf and the good professor himself, will start at long odds to team up let alone go back to back.
Played at The Entrance Hotel Euchre Dome Wednesday, May 17.
