BTW, when you win, keep in mind folks donate a portion of the prize money back when it's a small charitable event.
At Mobile where the charity was United Cerebral Palsy nearly all the backyard guys turned their checks over (most were $50-100) and I think a good many of the big winners donated back at least a portion of their winnings!
