It is with simultaneous regret and rejoice that the competition committee has certified the 1 Point victory over the long victorious WEST juggarnaut, by a scrappy EAST team.  Frankly, I am somewhat relieved as having held the MASHIE for 5 seasons was beginning to feel... I dunno, Selfish? SIX would have just been excessive. Taking it out on rounds, playing with it, having to remember to put it in the bag to bring to the next MASHIE year, after year, after year... after year. That's an awful lot... 

Truth be told, the actual Mashie didn't make it to Prairie Dunes and I was insistent, "We have to win, I forgot to pack the damn stick."
In all seriousness, we are a guerrilla operation and thankfully, the event was spectacular. Thank you to those of able to attend, and those that could not, you were missed.
I will let others opine on their experiences and recollections of the course. 
Thanks to DAN MOORE for the fantastic Group pic!  The Mashie handoff to Joe M was captured by online lurker, Twitter personality and attendee @bendelowgreens.  After the media week pics began showing up on the inter-webs, he had the gall to Twitter-whine "Am I the only one not invited to Landmand this week?" To shut him up, we invited him to the Mashie.

A special thanks to Rob Collins and Tad King for insanity.
A warm and prayer filled thank you to Will, Bryce and the Andersen Family for following thru with hosting the Mashie during a time of profound sorrow.
To Sam Kincaid and GM Adam Fletcher, thank you for wrangling and making sure we were taken care of.
To Super Dir of Ag, Pat Fisher, thank you for delivering firm and fast on an adolescent grass surface and for moving the pins on our second day when you barely had enough staff on the site. The experience was ridiculous.
A special thanks to the Farmer's Table for keeping us fed at all hours of the day!

A reminder, history has shown that there is always attrition and if you want to join the Mashie, Sign Up!
Thanks again everyone and on behalf of your Mashie Committee, thanks you for joining us "Up Top".
Most gratefully, Yours in Mashie Committee-dom,

Vaughn, George, Thurm and Criss

Hey Vaughn, thanks for the report. The Mashie looks to be the finest I have seen 😎. Is it possible to identify Mashers in the photo?

I'm late with this public bit of feedback but wow, am I glad I got back to the Mashie!

Vaughn, Criss, George and Jason, thank you.  There were many challenges along the way but you pulled together a great event.

To all those involved at Landmand, thank you.  You welcomed us with open arms during a most difficult time.  Everyone I encountered was first rate.  Sam, Adam, Pat, Tommy, you guys have a special place! And the Farmer's Table hit the spot!!

This was my first Mashie since 2016 at Wolf Run when, wait, yes, the East team won.  Coincidence???

The heck with the outcome, it was great catching up with old friends and meeting some new.  I'm hopeful it won't be another 6 years to make a trip with this group again!
