Wyndam Block Party

Ever since they stopped running shuttle buses from the coliseum, I haven’t been much of a GGO Fan. These days the golf tournament that calls Greensboro home is called the Wyndham Championship. It getting a lot of players and hopes to get more as the event gets closer. The tournament does a lot for the city that those of us in the trenches don’t see, sort of like that abandoned structure on Lee Street where we pay the gate guard around a quarter of a million dollars to keep the riff-raff out.

Anyway, back to the Golf Tournament, they are having a Block Party on Saturday, August 18th outside Natty Greens (the place where the city seems to having all concerts since the city doesn’t own any facility capable of handling 15,000 to 23,000 people). The Sleeping Booty Band will be playing. Grasshopper fans will recognize the band’s lead singer (Dana Zimmer) for her frequent singing of the National Anthem at games. Others will recognize her because she is nice to look at – from Yes Weekly and Gatecity’s Blog.

    IT WILL BE INTERSETING TO SEE HOW THE FIRST SUMMER DATE FOR THIS TOURNAMENT PLAYS OUT. THIS CONCERT IS EVIDENCE OF AN EXTRA EFFORT BY THE ORGANIZERS TO ENHANCE THE GOLF WITH FUN EVENTS. THE MEDIA DAY WAS LAST WEEK AT THE FOREST OAKS COUNTRY CLUB. COMPARED TO LAST YEAR’S MEDIA DAY, THE NUMBER DIFFERENCE OF MEDIA GUYS WAS QUITE EVIDENT-LAST YEAR, MAYBE 15-20 REPS. WITH 1 T.V. CAMERA-THIS YEAR 50-60 REPS WITH 6 T.V. CAMERAS. NOW, THAT DOES NOT EQUAL A SUCESSFUL TOURNAMENT, BUT IT IS ENCOURAGING. THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE WITH THIS DATE AND THE FALL DATE IS NOT HAVING TO GO HEAD TO HEAD WITH THE KING-FOOTBALL! SPEAKING OF FOOTBALL, AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, DANA ZIMMER USED TO BE A CAROLINA PANTHER CHEERLEADER. SHE WON THE HARLEY GIRL CONTEST HELD RECENTLY. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE HER WORK, SHE DOES PERSONAL TRAINING AT OUR FITNESS TODAY LOCATION ON N. ELM STREET ON A REGULAR BASIS AND IS A FINE TRAINER AND NOT BAD TO LOOK AT EITHER! IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE A MUCH LESS ATTRACTIVE TRAINER WORK, COME BY RANDLEMAN ROAD FITNESS TODAY AND YOU CAN WATCH YOURS TRULY WORK-NAH, NEVER MIND! OH, DANA IS ALSO IN SOME OF THE SCHIFFMAN’S JEWELRY ADS AS WELL. HAPPY LOOKING!!

    ummmmm the greensboro coliseum already has an event that night, and will hopefully bring in a few more bucks than what Sleeping Booty can do. However, when Daughtry performed, all the concessions were manned by Coliseum/Center Plate personnel, so maybe the city can make a few bucks at both shows.

    I see where the coliseum is following the N-Club’s lead in booking 80’s act on that night. I suspect this is a Win-Win for the city regardless of who does what.
