Today we are exactly 6 months away (or halfway) to the 2010 FTBO Golf Trip.
FTBO Online had a brief conversation with the defending Champion & 2010 Commissioner, Jaret Sledz.
FTBO Online: With the FTBO trip now only 6 months away, the Boys all want to know one thing – Where are you taking us? Sledz: Organizing the FTBO is a process, and we are currently working through that process and on schedule…
FTBO: Umm… So… Where are we going then? Sledz: Let’s just say that guys should have their passports ready… Or a Kalamazoo Hockey Card just to be safe. FTBO: So, we are likely headed to the United States? Sledz: Does the human arm have 32 bones?
FTBO: Fair Enough… Most guys like to start paying deposits early to spread out the cash before their wives notice. When will you make the first cash call? Sledz: The plan is to take 12 guys. With a budget of $1000 or less. The first deposit ($500) will be called in January and only the first 12 paid will be in.
FTBO: Did you say TWELVE? Sledz: That’s correct. If the 13th man is from Saskatchewan, he can come.
FTBO: As the top 2 finishers from last year, You & Jason Schmidt will be the Ryder cup Captains in 2010. Do you think you will beat Team Schmitty? Sledz: Let me put it this way… Does Jupiter have 63 Moons? FTBO: Well said…
FTBO: In picking players for the Ryder Cup, how do you feel when you know you may have to select a player like Bunney or Haggis who are both 0-2 lifetime in Ryder Cup play? Sledz: The FTBO is a man’s trip. Some guys just can’t golf drunk. Then again, Bass struggles just being sober, and can’t count when it comes to the Ryder Cup anyway.
FTBO: Thank-you for your time today, Is there anything else you to share with the boys?
Sledz: Looking outside just makes me think of Disco’s John Deere tractor… & golfing. FTBO: I’m hanging up now. Sledz: Alright, good talk.
