Too many projects were on the table for 2011 (Women’s Football Talk, fielding my own six-man women’s tackle football team and producing other programming relating to women’s tackle football), that the one I tried to achieve with the PCFL never got off the ground.

2012 looks to be a different year and my announcement for the season will be posted soon.

“Sudden Death” author Michael Balkind Prize Giveaways

May 12, 2007 Leave a comment

I run an LPGA Fantasy Golf site on the internet from the Sacramento area.  I was fortunate enough to acquire an author, Michael Balkind, as one of our members.  He has graciously offered to give me 3 autographed copies of his upcoming book Sudden Death for prize giveaways.  Also Michael will be sending me an advanced copy of his book in June so I will have a review out on the site prior to its release in October.  Until the release of Sudden Death, Michael will be giving away an Odyssey Putter every month.  Also if you register on his site for an email notification of the book release, you have a chance to get your own FREE autograph copy of Sudden Death.  See his site for details. 

That’s not all.  Read the post below that I put out on my site .
