It appears we’ve reached a stalemate when looking for the 24th competitor for this year’s Kendallville Open. After being flooded with applications, we’ve narrowed it down to two very worthy candidates.
Before we reveal them, the Board would like to thank everyone who applied and remind those who were not accepted that all hope is not lost, you will remain at the top of the wait list for next year’s tournament. Below are the applicants that we will not able to admit this year, in case any of you charter members are so moved that you’d like to take over their sponsorship and move them higher up the list.
Again, thank all of you for your interest, hopefully we’ll be seeing you at future tKOs. And, like I said, if any of you found yourself particularly connected to one of these applicants, like “stumpy black Bubba Watson”, you should consider taking over their sponsorship to move them up the list.
Moving on, I’d now like to announce our two finalists.
Mat’s application was accompanied by the following video. And it took every fiber in my being not to by pass all the guidelines set forth by the board and grant him immediate entry into the tournament.
Because both applicants were sponsored by players from the same class, neither of which have missed a tKO, and in order to remove the possibility of any bias, we will be deciding the final spot by random lottery ball. And in order to insure a fair and just selection, we will be broadcasting this live using google+ hangout. Ben and I will have to do some test runs over the next week, but expect the details to be posted by next Monday, as the selection show will be airing Tuesday, March 26th at 7PM CST.
