    Hey Illini Fans!

    Our first tournament was a success! We played at Ptarmigan CC in Colorado. It was not only a beautiful course, but a fantastic experience! However, we did have some struggles on the way to the airport! Our team got rerouted twice because of accidents, and we ended up cutting it close to the time we had to board the plane. Thankfully, we made our flight and it has made for a funny story! When we arrived in Colorado, gracious host families greeted us! Jackie, Sam, and I stayed with a couple that had a nice spread of candy, fruit, snack bars, and Simply Lemonades. It's safe to say we ate a good chunk of it. The host families even came out to watch the team play! They took pictures and made CDs of them for the team! Their house was beautiful. They lived on a lake that had a view of the Rocky Mountain National Park, the view was magnificent. I can't wait to do this again!!
