Tournament location after hurricane Wilma

To relieve the players who e-mailed or called us to find out if the tournament area is still in good shape after hurricane Wilma. Mario is short on gasoline, but our friend Jorge drove by there, very early this morning.
Given the circumstances, everything looks fine. Some debris, less shade under the palmtrees, but nothing to affect our tournament. We are very lucky compared to other areas in Miami and especially to Broward county (Ft Lauderdale area) which suffered substantial damage.
Miami's own Dave Barry issued a special news release today.
