@Big_RanDeer I would not have played in both editions of this event if it wasn’t for you. I am a very introverted person and attending the Streamsong weekend last year was the first time I had the courage to sign up for a trip like this. Your time planning both events down to the last detail clearly worked as I was right back on the signup sheet for this year. Cannot thank you enough for giving me the opportunity to play a sport I have loved my entire life with so many great people.

Ladies and gentlemen of @TheSupercell, I’d like to say congratulations to @BMarsh for being your overall major champion, and NIT qualifier for 2023.

The Extinction at Park Mammoth

Location: Mammoth Park Golf Club - Park City, KY

DATE: June 3

Raised $5,000.00


This event’s success is only a reflection of the buy in from our community, and wouldn’t have been what it was without everyone coming in. From my guy @macros all the way in Oregon, to our Supercell, PTC, and OATW hitters driving out, to the Electric Phactory crew, we had a field that went coast to coast and that’s so mind boggling and humbling.

Like I said last night, from the bottom of my heart, and on behalf of the entire @HighCottonClub… thank you all so so much.
