I signed up for the conference and they actually had me on the speaker/presenter list (which I volunteered for but didn't know they would just throw me into the schedule). . . so it is going to be hard for me to turn down the opportunity. I haven't decided on how I am going to get there, but would consider driving if I had 1 or 2 people to share fuel and driving each way. I would like to make it into a spring roadtrip of about 5 days to play a couple courses each way since I normally never get the chance to travel in spring/summer.
I hear ya man! I definitely got the itch and definitely need more input. It's really awesome of him to let people come along. I wish people around me were more like that. Anytime something goes on around here you need level 5 clearance and usually don't find out about it until the course is finished or almost finished. I just can't wait till that course is finished because northern Illinois is screaming for a course like that.
Im meeting up with Chuck at a course (he recently put in and is expanding with extra baskets and tees) in MN on Saturday (because I am going to be up there visiting my brother for the weekend. I'll be sure to ask whent he next visit in IL is, although I hope it doesn't interfere with a couple of the tourneys I wanted to play, but at this point I would rather learn the process than play. I have serious plans for 2013 to market myself as a designer so I better get some experience!
