Austin Invitational

Another lazy morning of sleeping in late before packing up and heading out to meet Aimee at a nearby Food Trailer Park.  Unfortunately most of the food trucks were closed for New Years Day, including the one we especially wanted to try, Pig Vicious.  Instead we headed to a local institution, Chuys, where I finally got some fajitas.  Those fajitas gave me some extra mojo because I then went on to dominate the two them at the first min-golf challenge of 2012 – winner!





And the winner is…

After a slow start on the front nine, BK came storming back and overcame a five stroke deficit to tie the score up on the 18th hole before going on to win the match on the first hole of the sudden death playoff and take the 2011 Mini Golf crown 2 games to 1.  BK won the first round of the 2011 tour on Cape Cod in July but KMJ tied things up during the tours next stop in Levanworth at the end of August.

The 2012 tour kicks off at the Austin invitational in early January, BK is currently favored by the odds makers at 2.5 to 1.



Cape Cod Invitational

Our last day on the Cape and Chris cooked up a pancake feast to send us off, as well as fortify all of us for the morning’s supreme mini-golf challenge over at Pirates Cove Adventure mini-golf, the spot me & BK missed out on a couple nights before.


It was still pretty busy as we arrived, but not as bad as before.  The actually course was much tamer than it looked from the road – not many holes with exciting obstacles, but we still had fun.


Despite playing with Gunnar strapped to his chest, Chris had an impressive back-9 to storm past me & Kari into second place but he couldn’t quite catch BK.  I started off with a Hole-in-One right at the beginning, but faltered on a couple others to land in third.  BK now owns the current lead in our continuing battle, 2-1 (but all games have been very close).
