couple of interesting events coming up

Recommended Posts

I have received a couple of emails about some interesting scrambles coming up, I don't have the links but you can check it out on their websites:

2 person big cup scramble at Montgomery National

and Chaska Town Course is having a 1 man scramble (you get to hit two balls each shot and choose the best)

The Montgomery scramble is like $50 with cart and food I think and the Chaska scramble is 90 bucks. My brother in law is leaning towards us playing the 1 person scramble, but it is October 11th I believe, I haven't ruled it out, but fall rates are starting to happen, lots of great golf out there to be played

I think it's this Sunday that there's a 3-man scramble at the LSCC. Trouble finding people interested. Hunting season is starting to kick into gear and I think the clubs have found the back of some closets.

I played twice this week at the Cannon Golf Club (Mon & Thurs) with 1:30 tee times. Hardly anyone around after 12 noon. Only took 2:50 and 3:05 to play.

Funny...On Monday I was hitting some balls on the range when an older (age 70 to 75) man took a spot next to me. He dug out 2 handfuls of yellow practice balls out of his bag and hit them. Then he went to a nearby practice green with a sand trap where the staff leaves about 15 to 20 yellow balls to use. He picked them all up and put them into his bag.

Another fun one is Oak Marsh's annual Chili Open. They don't ring any golf for the day, just put it all towards prizes, last year we won a Ping Answer driver for 3rd place.

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
