Hey Fatro Man (post #88830)

You make it home OK? Gunner says you passed the mommyvan test.

I did, thanks. Rolled in around 1:00 and have been half useless all day.

Thanks to you and Gunner for the great trip. Going to be itunes shopping this week.

Steve,


I need a full report. I gather the lovely Marie did not attend looking at the car pool list.

Hi Chuck,

Full report is that it was a blast. You should definitely sign up next year.

Marie didn't go. She had a family reunion last weekend.

But I'll tell you, the food, the music, the genuinely nice group of people, the laughs on the ride in and out with Grant and Gunner... well, I wish the next one started next week.

A little golf was worked in. And my lunch money went to Mike Smith and Calvin :)

And the setting? Could you beat sitting in an orchard on three marvelously cool summer days?

Looks like Forrest had fun, too.

Best,

Steve

Yep!


And yes, I'm leaning on sunburned forearms as I type.


Forrest - a happy kind of tired

Glad to hear you made it back safely.

It was fun to see you out there. I'll be in touch this week with some site info.

Same here - we need to mingle with your better half, as well!

That'd be great. Next trip up this way let's arrange dinner!

Steve,


Sounds like it was a blast. I checked in on the web cam Sat PM and wished to have been there. 


The golf must have been Jersey( MS/ Maine) rules.


On behalf of all BT'ers, Thanx DD and RB for hosting/sharing the fun. Thanx to all who shared pics of what looked like a great time.


Forrest needed a break.


FH should document/publish one of these fests.   Justin Fink ?????????

Chuck,

It was, it really was a great time.

In the tradition of the small addition, maybe we should nominate you to photo document the fest next year? I'm sure we could round up some Ezra Brooks for your effort :)

Best,
Steve

"genuinely nice group of people"


sshhhhh


don't let on that there's no axe murderers at Fests- everyone will want to come. LOL


BTW, it was real nice meeting you.


And I don't really believe that you did what Gunner said you did in the Mommyvan. <G>

(post #88830, reply #24 of 54)

oh gawd! Don't tell anyone else!

Heyyyy Mustang Sally!

Looks like you survived your trip back.

A real pleasure to meet you, too. Thanks for putting up with my very un-Nicklaus like golf.

We'll have to do a mid-Atlantic mini fest. Maybe at one of those Jersey pizza joints.

I'll have to talk to Gunner. What happens in the mommyvan, stays in the mommyvan :)

By which you mean we both use clubs, eh? LOL

Great to meet you, as well. Hope you get to stay longer next time.

I'll be practicing all year. Gotta get that $1.50 back somehow.

couple inches more for woods

Don't bet on the 1 horse in the 3rd race. No need to thank me.

Thanks for including me in the golf outing. Good fun meeting you, and as with everything else fest-acular, the real deal surpassed all expectations.

We sort of kind of proved what these fests are all about.  You and I typed back and forth for the past several months.  Your memory however is a bit better than mine.


Pretty interesting meeting up for the first time, no?


You ain't fat


and I ain't big.


All the mystique, gone in one fest.  Not a bad thing.

Yes, indeed it was a good thing.

Looking forward to the next round.

I should have showed up with some pillows stuffed under my shirt to keep the legend alive.

you and Joyce both

keep your right knee bent through the backswing

when it straightens your weight moves to the outside of your right foot and it sometimes stays there

so you top it with longer clubs or hit it fat with shorter ones

keep that knee flexed and most of those things you are raving about in my swing just happen
