    The US Amateur Team South Championship will run as planned. The hotel has power, roads are clearing, sun is out, snow is melting. So far no one has canceled. Come out and play!  From the Tournament Coordinator:  "if people without teams want to come on Friday or Saturday, we will make teams or changes due to [possible] out-of-state no shows."
