Are you sitting comfortably?

Then I shall begin...

The 2012 Kent Invitational Tournament is coming back bigger and better for the new season. After another tense and exciting season the 2012 event is going to be even closer and more competitive leading to the crowning of the best of the best - the KIT champion.

The 2 phase structure will remain and Phase 2, the KIT final on Saturday 10th November, will remain exactly the same as this year (2 rounds on Lost Island Explorers added to the aggregate score from phase 1 - lowest total wins the KIT).

The difference for 2012 is all about phase 1.

There will be 7 official rounds for the 2012 KIT with all players starting with a strokeplay score of 40 for each of the rounds (10 lower than in 2011, to keep the overall phase 2 starting scores as close as possible).

Each of the seven rounds will be based around a formal competition (some KMGC specific and others on the full BMGA tour). Players will take their lowest round score from each of the 7 events to count as their round total. Each event will see a KIT round winner proclaimed (no extra points or bonuses for this apart from the obvious kudos of being the 'best' KMGC KIT player at the event). This way all of the KIT scores will be formally recognised and level the playing field for the KIT final.

So the 7 rounds are as follows:

ROUND 1 - Cup Cake Classic - Hastings Seafront Crazy (Monday 2nd Jan)

ROUND 2 - Easter Eggstravaganza - tbc but planning on holding it on Easter Sunday (9th April) again at Bluewater Smugglers.

ROUND 3 - British Masters - Splash Point Mini Golf (Sunday 22nd April)

ROUND 4 - British Championship - Pirate course (Sat/Sun 23rd/24th June)

ROUND 5 - Megabowl 5 - Strokes (Early Sun in August - date tbc)

ROUND 6 - British Open - Strokes (Sat/Sun 22nd/23rd September)

ROUND 7 - World Crazy Golf Championship - Hastings (Sat/Sun 28th/29th October)

Job done - roll on the 2nd!!!!!

VTK!

Time for an update on the KIT me thinks.

Although there are no longer any ranking points available for the event, the KIT has been a key part of the KMGC since our inception in 2006 so it will continue.

After all, it's a pretty epic roll of honour for those fortunate (or dare we say it good enough!) to lift the marvellously mini trophy.

2006 - Sean Homer
2007 - Ruth Bullin
2008 - Rocky Bullin
2009 - Marc Chapman
2010 - Michael Smith (with a touch of last hole controversy!!)
2011 - Michael Smith

For 2012 onwards the KIT will be awarded as always the day before the Kent Open, based on the seasons performance - effectively the KMGC Player Of The Year award.

So give me a few moments to trawl through the results from this year and a new 2012 updated KIT table will emerge...

And lest we forget that the winner of the KIT has NEVER won the Kent Open the following day (with only one winner in our history ever having won both titles in their career... I thank you).

VTK!

Final updated KIT table and details now online at http://www.kentminigolfclub.co.uk/2012KIT.htm

No surprises to see who's in the lead but all I will say is remember we all have to play hole 18 twice on the day (maybe more if we need a play off) so anything can happen then!! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Wink

2 final points for the KIT - probably looking at a 1pm start not 2pm (forgot that it gets dark earlier now).

As well as the £5 day rate to the course, there will be a nominal fee for the KIT (which helps supplement the KO Prize fund). Looking at no more than £5 per person.

Phase 1 results online with the full KIT final treaming results page now set up (ignore the hole by hole scores for round 1, it's just the overall scores that count - but this way it makes it easier and makes more sense when you see the results from round 2 & 3 added):

KIT update:

Confirmed tee off time for round 1 - 1pm.

2 rounds with rolling start.

We may get exclusive use of the course for the KIT dependant on how busy they are on Saturday.

Entry fee for the KIT - £5 per person (free for our youngest players - the Volcano and the Hurricane if they play). All proceeds will help pay for the medals and trophies for the weekend (inc the VTK Shield).

NB: everyone needs to ensure they also pay their day rate direct to the course on Saturday (unless of course you have taken advantage of the courses winter passes!).

For the KO, I will collect all the entry fees on Sat/Sun (and distribute the balls) and will then pass on the courses split myself (£5 per adult player).
