The Event Scheduled for September 29th has been Cancelled!
We hope to reschedule for Spring 2015.  Thank you!

A few years ago, we hosted a "Carl Spackler" tournament at The Refuge and raised more than $10,000.  Now we're doing it again for yet another good cause.  Simpson County Academy senior Emily Crace is raising money for new software for the SCA Elementary tutoring lab that she started this year as part of her senior project.  So we thought "What better way than another Carl Spackler tournament?"

So, on Carl's behalf (because he's busy on the course right now), I would like to personally invite you to participate in The "Un-Annual Carl Spackler Invitational" benefiting the Simpson County Academy Elementary Tutoring Lab to be held Monday, September 29, 2014 at The Refuge in Flowood, Mississippi.

We are currently working on gathering prizes and other items for the tournament.  If you would like to donate prizes, please contact me via email.  If you want to enter a team, click the link below to print out a form and enter--we are limited to the first 25 registered teams.
