You know the drill, be there or be square.

Talk amongst yourselves as to BnB lodging.

Don't forget the pre-herf on Thursday the 8th at @Patrickbrick's.

    @VegasFrank and I are knocking around the idea of a round of golf Thursday before the festivities at @Patrickbrick house. Anyone else interested?

    There are many courses not far from me,let me know how much you want to spend. I actually might get talked into this, been a decade since I played though.

    I've never once in my life played golf, I'd probably hit some old person in the head accidentally, either with a flying ball or a flying club.

    Calvin's in.

    I've played about 5 rounds in my life, once in the past 20 years. But I'd give it a try.

    My disagree, I'm perfectly capable of embarrassing myself for free, I don't need to spend a bunch of time and money on it also. Y'all have fun though. (see?)

  • peter4jcpeter4jc Posts: 15,148 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I think I side w/ Calvin; I can't read his y'all and hear it in his voice. He'll just never be able to say it and have it come off naturally. Maybe we can do some vocal training in June and help him get right.

    It’s not about the game, it’s the people you’re with!

    And how many beers I can drink

    How much do you want to spend, and how difficult? Chalet Hills, Foxford Hills, prairie Island, Countryside (links style and least expensive), Arboretum, Cranes Landing. These are all not far and good courses. Arboretum has water on 16 of the 18 and used to have a 3 tier 18th green, heard they made it easier though. Foxford Hills, Chalet hills, are gorgeous and difficult. Prairie Island is a close third.

    I can get us on Glenview for free but is 13 miles away. There are a **** ton more courses down that way too. Before the real world came calling i played almost everyday, I know most of the courses around.

    Considering I’m one step above golfing with a windmill or giant clown head to putt into, I’m perfectly fine with cheap and easy.

    Wait Golf? HMMM

    I do have this weekend blocked off to be there. Not sure if I can swing Thursday in IL but will see how things look as we get closer for that.

    Team O'Donnell FTW!

    After chatting with Patrick and seeing Frank is of a similar mind as me, I say we give Glenview Park Golf Club a try. Patrick hasn’t played it so it’ll be new for everyone , probably not that difficult and the price is right.

  • peter4jcpeter4jc Posts: 15,148 ✭✭✭✭✭

    That's my 'like'. :*

    A guy can put away a lot of beers in a round of golf. Good thing you can’t get a DUI on a golf cart. Or can you? 🤔

    I'm up in the air at the moment. Crossing my fingers I can make it, as I look forward to this every year.
