We are going to a few new places. Panama City should be great. It is Spring Break and I am sure we will have good, rowdy crowds. When I first saw Riverside, I said, "huh?" Apparently the location of the tournament is a trendy little spot. We shall see on April 17th! The San Diego event is now at a casino instead of on the beach. That should be interesting. We are very excited to be going to the Hamptons in August! It is high time there and I am sure the Hamptons have never seen something quite like what we will bring.
There are 16 stops on this schedule, two less than last year. I like it. With the current state of the economy, we were in fear of losing several more, but I think 16 is a good, solid number of events that will make a complete season.
We are going to some interesting cities and hopefully the tour will have good success in those new places! It will be a year to watch, for sure. There are so many new teams plus without Misty and Kerri, there will be new women emerging to the top of the ranks.
We are four weeks out from the first tournament. Tyra and I are training hard and getting better every day. We are looking forward to the season starting, but we realize that we have a lot of work to do before then, so we are thankful that we still have four weeks. We have our eyes set on climbing to the top! I am excited for all the good things to come!
