Dirters Disaster Relief
  • I just made my donation today. Please everybody. A $10 donation gets you the ebook that I paid $25 for a few months ago. The Australians who need help with be very appreciative of whatever you can give to the relief effort. You'll get some Karma with the Golf Gods too...a 69 will be in your future by giving...kidding around. Please help.
    Thanks,

  • Elk has 20 birdies, is at 15 under and 9 behind the leaders. He needs a little Duval 59 to reel in the boys for the W. Go Elk!

  • Elk made 16 birdies through 3 rounds and is only 6 shots off the lead at 12 under. Reel in the big tuna and get the W. Go Elk!

  • Okay, I have spread the word on both my Facebook page and on another golf site (www.stracka.com). We should hopefully get some serious traffic from Dirters and non-Dirters alike (and maybe, after receiving the ebook, they'll ALL be Dirters!).

  • Henny great idea put me down for 20 a birdie. Whatever I can do to help. As some may or may not know I live in Beaumont Texas and was raised in Port Arthur just south. In the last 5 years we have been hit with 3 major Catastrophes. I stayed through IKE and watched the flood waters destroy thousands of lives and homes. To describe what thats like is impossible. Imagine one day there is 4500 homes on the beach and the next less than 200. If it were not for the great people from all over the world and America there is no way the GOLDEN TRIANGLE bounces back as fast as we did. When ELK wins put me down for a big suprise.

  • Thanks Henny.... As I mentioned yesterday we are creating a way for Dirters to make donations. We are setting up a special website just for this based upon your original wonderful idea that the folks here in Secret In The Dirt should get behind Elk and try to help in whatever small way we can! In these sorts of situations every bit helps, so it's up to us to do our little bit!! More on this later today!

  • Hey Henny,
    send me your postal address in a PM, I have a little Australian Thankyou for you from Queensland.

  • Henny you are a bloody legend mate! What a great idea to ride off Elk's generous pledge. The dirters will get behind this for sure. In the process of helping people in need, we are also spreading lots of good vibes and positive energy to Elk. We are right behind you Elk!!! Drain them all week Elk...
    So once Elk wins next week, Henny do you think we should just call the relief appeal hotline directly ourselves and donate, or send it to you?

  • Henny, great gesture Mate...the people of Sth East Qld will be most appreciative.

    Apparently there were tens of thousands of people who pitched in to help clean things up y'day and given how times have been hard with the economy over there in the States you and the other guys who have jumped on board of Elk's intiative are extremely kind.

    I'm on The Big Man's coat tails also however like you, $1,000 a birdie is just a tad above what the Treasury can commit, unfortunately. That said, may the Big Man make plenty at the Bob Hope and in 2011!!!!

    Okay, here’s the deal. I can only “comment” or “like” certain people in the village. Elk is one of those I can’t. He has tried to help me with my settings. But I can’t seem to figure it out. Maybe he has me blocked (who can blame him, I can be an annoying SOB at times!).

    Why am I telling you this? To prove an important point. To prove how helpful Elk and Mike and Mr. Burke and everyone else who runs SITD are to me and everyone else. And those are just the one with official capacities around here.

    We also get help from golf geniuses like Martin and Geoff and Lee and many others.

    And what about the common everyday “Dirters”? The guys in the trenches (which means your divots are much too deep, by the way). Who hasn’t been helped by the insight, question and postings about Golf’s never-ending riddle from Dirters like Parks, Rock, Karl, Anton, Mark and others to numerous to mention? I know they have been most helpful towards me.

    “Yeah, so what Henny, what’s your point?” I can hear you saying. My point is this. I want give back.

    I’m just a workingman trying to raise two young girls on one salary in the middle of what some pundits are calling “THE GREAT RECESSION”. Working hours have been cut back, and taxes are going through the roof around here. Private school is very expensive and we all know where gas prices are headed.

    I know times are tough, very tough. But I’m thinking some of the people in Australia have it a bit tougher than we do right now. So here’s my idea.

    Elk had been kind enough to pledge $1,000 for each birdie at “The Bob Hope Classic” next week. Nice gesture. I think we Dirters should join him.

    As stated above, I’m not made of money. But I figure every little bit helps right?

    I pledge 5 bucks for every birdie Elk makes and an extra 100 dollars when (not if) he wins the thing. I realize it’s not much, but it’s all I can do right now.
    I challenge all other Dirters to check their hearts and wallets and see if the can pitch in also.

    Either Mike can set something up here in the Dirt (sorry Mike, not trying to give you more work to do), or Elk can tell me where to send the check.

    Now go out and set the course record Elk!

    (If any Dirters decide to join in, remember it’s a 5 round tourney and a bit of a birdie fest, but it’s for good cause.)
