FarmGolf Super Weekend I
(FGP) As part of a new marketing strategy for the world’s fastest growing sport, the 2007 season will be kicked off with FarmGolf Super Weekend I, with a full slate of activities for Saturday, April 7th and Sunday April 8th.
While much of the festivities require an invitation, some of the lesser events are open to the public. The Super Weekend I schedule is as follows:

A new feature of the 6th FarmGolf Masters will be the introduction of the first Strongest FarmGolfer Contest. The tentative menu for the Strongest FarmGolfer Dinner two hours prior to this event is as follows:
This event is open to the public and it is highly recommended that all of you attend. Once you get a whiff of this event, you’ll want to come back for more of what FarmGolf offers.
The FarmGolf Super Weekend I is already a big hit with scalpers, as evidenced by the below photo taken just one day after the wedding invitations were mailed out. We’re sure to be bombarded with more scalpers for the evening ticket event at Lil’ Moe’s.
Evening Entertainment at Lil’ Moe’s is the Dennis McClung Blues Band from 8:30PM to 12:00 Midnight.
2007 FarmGolf Masters on Sunday April 8, 2006
(FGP) As a part of FarmGolf Super Weekend I festivities, the sixth installment of the FarmGolf Masters will feature a number of “wedding holdovers” making their FarmGolf debuts. Those who perform really well will have a chance to reach a Top 50 FarmGolfer in the World Ranking.
The format will be three players per team, with each team playing three rounds of golf for a total of 18 holes. Play will begin around 1PM, however special arrangements can be made for tee times as early as 9:00AM for those who must travel a significant distance home.
All participants, especially those wanting to get “ranking points”, should bring a covered dish item for the FarmGolf buffet or Strongest FarmGolfer Contest.
2007 FarmGolf Calendar Released
(FGP) The final edition of the 2007 FarmGolf Calendar was delayed until a few days into the new year. This was due to the calendar contract being switched to Staples from OfficeMax.
Features in this year’s calendar include the world famous FarmGolf Aerial Photographer, Eric McGuire, adorning the cover. Also, the January month featured a look back to the year 19 B.F. (Before FarmGolf) with the way life was back prior to the invention of the world’s fastest growing sport.
Collages from the FarmGolf European Tour and more extensive WVU Football Tailgate pictures from the 2006 season are included.
Annual FarmGolf Banquet, December 17, 2006
(FGP) The traditional FarmGolf Banquet had a change of venue for the 2006 season. For the first time, ladies were given a FarmGolf Urinal reprieve and the banquet was moved to the Commissioner/Photographer residence. One of the reasons for the relocation of the banquet was to view the ongoing changes of the primary residence at FarmGolf.
Significant renovations are being done in preparation for FarmGolf Super Weekend I, as can be evidenced from the below photos. Renovations will be completed in March, 2007.
2006 FarmGolf Banquet Menu
Chef Dave’s Grilled Ham

Another addition at the main residence of FarmGolf is high-definition TV, which is now available in both living rooms. This will be a great addition to view the regular Masters tournament on Saturday afternoon, before the real event occurs on Sunday, April 8th.
Las Vegas Course Update
(FGP) FarmGolf sent a couple to Las Vegas on February 10th to check on the much-delayed FarmGolf Course located on the Strip between the MGM Grand and the Aladdin Hotels. This course was slated to open last year, but has experienced some construction delays. Two Philippi area residents, Pam Green and Greg Annon, promised to check up on the progress of this state-of-the-art facility.
However, as often happens in Las Vegas, they became sidetracked by the many wedding chapels along Las Vegas Boulevard. Although all of the circumstances are unknown at the time of this newsletter’s publication, we will keep you posted.
Marketing Director Search Continues
(FGP) After the problems associated with previous Marketing Directors, we have delayed the filling of this position until March, 2007. A lot has happened since the last newsletter in November, 2006.
FarmGolf has debated amongst the Board of Directors for the past three months as to whether or not the new hire should have a totally clean background with little or no “skeletons in the closet”, OR should we continue and hire someone who resembles many of the FarmGolfers and likes to really have a good time and also do his or her job.
While the second type of hire has worked for a short time, and later “gone to hell”, it still intrigues many of us to finally get it right one way or the other.
During our current search, we have received some contact from two former employees, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton. We were extremely shocked when they both showed up at the Clubhouse last week. Each of them alternately demanded their old job back or some sort of package deal between the two of them.
Regardless of the previous good times that many of us had with them, we just could not see it working again, especially since it didn’t turn out well the last time. So, the Board sent them on their merry way, and it was later found out that they drowned their sorrows at Lil’ Moe’s in Philippi. Below a picture catches them both still a bit upset, while others enjoy their “moment of sorrow”.
As a final note, FarmGolf found out just a couple of days prior to this newsletter that Britney had shaved her head and was really despondent. We, at FarmGolf, sincerely hope that it was not due to our rejection of her again assuming Marketing Director duties.
In conclusion, various FarmGolfers and/or the following females have submitted “interview videos” as a consideration for employment. These would be classified as potential employees with a relatively clean background and no skeletons in the closet.
A final decision will be made on this very important position in the near future, and those emails regarding the employment of either Lindsay Lohan or Tara Reid will also be taken into consideration.
