Only in California. Ring Donuts in Hollywood specializes in .. tofu donuts.

Here's a picture of a Montana donut. Of course, you eat these every day, you end up north of 300 Lbs. in a hurry.

Hi Maurice, you're so right, F5J is not a "relax" format but you'll have a blast, guaranteed.

Greg, that's hilarious. Actual real tofu donuts in actual real nutty Calif. Who woulda thunk?

If you did. You might have won both. But you will never know
I am a fixer by trade so your not having a plane is not a very good excuse
Hope to see you soon. John

And a tip of the hat to Tim Johnson who is rocking the CD duties!!!

I've also confirmed that you need to fly more than once every 5 months if you expect to do decently against these guys. Forget the PGA, THESE guys are GOOD!!!!
