1st Annual MGS Regional Golf Outing-Pre Event Chat


Recommended Posts

Those of you who haven't checked in on the regional thread that consists of Maryland/DE/PA/VA/NJ/NY and others may not be aware there is a 2 day regional stay and play outing scheduled on the weekend of Aug 5-7.   You can read the orgins of it here if you'd like Queenstown Regional MGS Outing

However, now that attendees are confirmed and the date is getting close, there is a lot of excitement about it for those attending.   As the original planner of the event, I have had to unfortuantely pull out due to some personal issues, but the rest of the gang is going to have a blast and will share some good banter before, during and after the outing. 

So feel free to jump in the fun yourself with any comments (in other words trash talke..etc) that you may find entertaining.

Here's a list of the culprits..I mean attendees.

@Berg Ryman @Jmikecpa @cksurfdude @tommc23 @Getoffmylawn @Jwc5149 @McGolf @cnosil@MDGolfHacker @EasyPutter @Shapotomous @barryschwartz56

LOL, yeah I see what you mean.  There's a minus button to minimize the River fairway improvement update.  or view the videos here:

Yeah. That was giving me the same problem earlier today.  It’s been there in the past but today it wouldn’t minimize easily. 
 

As for the course update.  The River course—it’s signature converted to Bermuda grass in the fairways in June.  It is closed until jul 29 to let it grow.  I saw some pics on Friday and it looks very good.  And these last 3-4 days that we have had of 93-96 degrees sre certainly going to help as well.  I plan to make a trip over later this week or early next to see how things look.   But I expect it will be very good.

So just to let everyone know, the planned revolution was not televised and instead it was a secret coup to overthrow @Golfspy_CG2 by myself and @MDGolfHacker to be co-runners on site of this event.

Seriously though, big ups to Rob for really handling the moving parts and a speedy recovery to see you at the "hopeful" next one.

Let's lay the land here, most of us are staying on site in one cottage, arriving on Friday afternoon/evening. Going to at least my first time meeting Spies in the wild, so that'll be fun. We've got two rounds scheduled, one on each course at Queenstown, going out in groups and maybe getting some games going. Bring those wads of cash boys, because I'm sure they'll be there for the taking.

Also, myself, @Getoffmylawn, @cnosil, and @Shapotomous will be doing a wedge fitting and @tommc23 will be taking on an iron fitting with the local Titleist fitting professional as organized by Rob.

For those of you looking for content, never fear @McGolf is bringing both a drone and his camera to catch some stuff and play, so I'm sure he'll be popping in from time to time to share with y'all some of what's going down.

Lastly, just to keep everyone on their toes, we might have a couple surprises up our sleeves... so stay tuned.

This place is bananas beautiful. Have such an awesome time!  And @MDGolfHacker - I mean...is three dozen enough? That there's a LOT of water.

I would have loved to make this trip!  I'm babysitting the contractor building my addition on my house for my hitting bay.  Framing starts this week.

I need to make a trip east this fall; hope I can hook up with a few of y'all, but don't know my timing or itinerary yet.

Note. I played it several times over the years and yes you can/will lose some balls there.  But my highlight round was many yesrs ago, I played a tournament round there and didn’t lose a single ball! I was more proud of that fact than my score that day.  Ha

I have an idea for you, but don't tell anyone else.  

Pack a wet suit.  The night BEFORE you play, grab your suit, a SCUBA tank and a mask, and get into that water.  Next day, you suddenly have a never-ending supply of PERFECTLY GOOD balls (shhh...don't tell MGS HQ I said that. What's a little water-logging amongst internet-friends?) that you're willing, at a significant upcharge, to sell to your competitors (leaving your metric ton of balls you brought with you just. for. you.) 

Love, Evil Genius.
