Apparently there's a new one in Taunton too.

We could definitely do that.

Same. I'm a little lucky that there are pretty large windows pointing straight at the camera for face-on views, but DTL views get dark, especially when it's cloudy.

How often is the range open at the fore kicks in Marlboro? I'm there every Saturday, but there's 4 year olds playing soccer on every available inch of the place

Yeah, i have the same problem with the heated ranges because I'm standing in the shade hitting into the light.

Hopefully by "near future" you mean May, June, July, August, September or October.

I live in Albany too and if I didn't make a bad impression upon @colin007 could probably ride out with him, however, I wasn't able to post in http://thesandtrap.com/t/72404/tst-new-england-spring-summer-2014-outing

Jamo, I was going to try that fore kicks place in marlborogh next week, do you like it?  Is it big enough to get a good idea of ball flight?

I do like it. For ball flight, you get a sense of whether you pushed or pulled it, but not so much if you're slicing or hooking the ball. Even if you don't get too much of the ball flight, hitting into a net isn't the worst thing.

Either way, it beats hitting balls at a regular driving range with those wonky heaters that rarely work.

Just make sure you either check their website or call ahead. They're generally open 9-3, but sometimes they don't open until noon.
