    Heard back from my buddy - we'd like to play a round... at Augusta (said in my best Bill Murray voice). His BA name is Drazzamatazz

    LOL, Sliver If it is any consolation, I wear that shirt everywhere (beer related), Had it on at the SC release at Foothills. Wore it all day at Huna. Seriously my favorite shirt.

    My boss yells at me when I wear it to work, as I have a Harley and he thinks its my gang logo.

  6. If there's still a slot open I'm in. Just waiting to see if my partner wants to do it. I do have another person who says he'll do it.

    Lots of interest in here and my in-box!

    Everyone let me know if End of May/start of June for shipping DEADLINE is good?

    That shipping date works for me/us. Plenty of time to get together the box

    I'll try to update the confirmed folks etc. tonight (late) when I get home. Shipping deadline will be the first Friday in June (7th) People will be encouraged to ship earlier if they get their boxes squared away etc. Assistant greens-keepers will probably need the entire window to square away finances due to credit troubles etc.

    I'll look at this stuff tonight, figure out where we stand, and decide how many/more groups to allow in, and then we'll create targets and move on to the driving range for some trash talk.

  11. You guys are screwed. During high school, Matt played junior hockey and was the only guy to ever take off his skate and try to stab somebody.

    Beginning of June ship date works for us.

    IF YOU MESSAGED ME, You're in. Here is the list. Guys listed without a partner have first shot to get in. Round up/finalize your partner. We need one more group to join for an even number, or if one of the three without a partner yet drops out etc. but having 16 groups would be great.

    Shipping deadline will be the first week of June, and we'll stick to the nine-holes listed in the first post. Once the un-confirmed are sorted out and finalized, THEN you guys can blow up my in-box with contact info/shirt sizes etc.

  16. June shipping works for me...I'll have a partner soon, hopefully. (Side note: any Vermont/NH BAs who want to partner with me, send a message!)

    Either way, this sounds awesome, I'll find someone soon.

    ...or I'll gracefully bow out, don't want to hold up the show.

    that window works for us because we have already decided on the beers pretty much. Where's our damn target?

    Got another team confirmed.... no more openings unless someone on the Tentative list drops out. More CA = No problem.

    You know, you should play with Dr. Beeper and myself. I mean, he's been club champion for three years running and I'm no slouch myself.

    Don't sell yourself short Judge, you're a tremendous slouch.

    I'm out, open it up. I didnt get any response from Colorado BA's.

    On a related note, it's 68 degrees, I've got some Dales on ice, and I'm going to play nine.

  28. Not cool. 15 degrees at my house this morning. I'm becoming convinced that there will be no golf this season because it's never going to warm above 40 degrees. Never.

    Although, I do have one thing going for me...I have Arthur and his friends Heady and Topper in the fridge at home :)

    This cracks me up. The Minnesota guys all bitching about a shipping window. How long is the golf season there, about two weeks ?? Right between the ice fishing season and the start of curling ?????

    just kidding my frozen breathren, this is going to be a fun BIF.........

    You Floridaians bitched about "cold" weather for Huna day. We laugh at you, I cannot imagine what you would have said during Darkness Day 2012. I love the extra monetary value people are putting on Huna because of the weather

    I cannot wait for the six weeks of spring we will get

And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote...........

    Can I just be an honorary member of this thread and the hints and hauls? I promise I will bring no substance, worthless opinion, and general smarminess. I will however provide timely golf quotes and any advice on short game play.

    The wind picked up yesterday when we got to the course, but I got around in 41. Triple bogeyed the 7th.
