I can help.  I had a Boise itinerary all planned after the Covid fallout precluded us going to Bend, OR.  But we opted to just return to Spokane since only 4 of us attended and 3 were from eastern WA.  Well, maybe Chris hadn't moved their yet... can't remember...memory isn't what it used to be.  I just know we had a blast and always do.

I have an idea of the courses I think everyone will enjoy and that show off the diversity of layouts in the area, but if you have some suggestions, I am open.  I have some ideas on places to stay and locations as well as places to dine that are good.  Also, TopGolf will be open by then as well.

Banbury, Boise Ranch, Timberstone, and Quail Hollow immediately come to mind.  I played Banbury with another spy a few years ago... nice course. We'll defer to your local knowledge.

I'm playing Timberstone Monday 6/27 on my return leg home from our last meet-up round at Wildhorse on Sunday.  If you're interested in meeting up, let me know.

BanBury and Timberstone we're on my short list.  Boise Ranch is my home course, so it is good.  But I was thinking Falcon Crest and Shadow Valley as the two others.  But I don't think you could go wrong with Quail Hollow or Red Hawk either as both are fun course with nice challenges.

As for meeting up on the 27th, as long as we are not releasing our new software build that weekend I am good with that.

We have "fall golf" here in Montana.  Mufflers, mittens, and thermal undies may be needed however.

Up until late October is good here.  Pushing into November however would require that Montana fall golf outfit on most days.

If I start traveling that far for Spy Meet-up's, it will be a toss-up between PNW and Ohio 🙂.  My attempt to start a Rocky Mountain Meet seems DOA ... which is too bad considering how many CO, UT, and NV spies we have 😢.

Someone on the wet side of the Cascades needs to set it up.  Not many active members in the Seattle area at the moment; more in the Portland area.

I didn't get to go to Tennessee this spring, so I'm hoping to go in the fall.  Depending on the timing, or if that trip falls through, then I'm in for Boise.  I have an uncle living in Nampa.

All this "spy meet stuff" got me thinking that we should have a little side game going between the Ohio Spring Fling and the PNW Meet-up. How about a CTP contest with entries documented in the Still Aceless Thread? And maybe a low net and low gross score?  Since I'm sure somewhere in the forum rules, gambling is verboten, bragging rights will have to suffice.  Maybe we can get Jamie @GolfSpy_APHto add a banner for the week.   @MattF, you boyz in for it?

Best to send a PM to @GolfSpy_BOS@GolfSpy_TCU to organize this. Can't say I've followed this thread at all and have a lot going on that week with anniversary among other things.

I'm good with some sort of competition. @DiscipleofPenick, too?

EDIT: I just saw Tom's response in the Ohio thread, so ignore this.
