What exactly is going on Thursday? Is the putting challenge able to happen when we check in or at a certain time in the evening? We have some complimentary tickets to the cornbelters game & we are curious if we can do both events. Thank you.

When you are searching for a lost disc may you find two.

Last year, you did the putting when you checked in. I did it right at the start of check in, and then headed home for something (can't remember what it was).
