So much to do…so little time to do it. Or not! Why not start planning NOW even if your event is next year? The “scramble” is your format…not what you want to be doing weeks before the tournament!! (Did you see what we did there? 🙂 ) Imagine sitting in your office–or meeting with the committee–a week prior to the golf outing…with nothing to do! Because it’s already been taken care of. Heck, you might even be able to take a few days off before the event. More importantly, planning ahead–way ahead–gives you plenty of time to handle all those little “things” that will inevitably come up; “stuff” happens! But with time on your side, they’re all easily remedied…calmly, coolly, collectively. Which means virtually all your decisions will be the right ones…because you had the time to discuss them WITHOUT being “under the gun”. Our experience (27 years!) has been that when folks DON”T have the luxury of time, that’s when mistakes are made and decisions are regretted. All avoidable with an early start. So what are you waiting for?!?
