Here are approach shots  for Erik, Bill, John, and Jonny on Hole #18 John,   Bill, Jonny,  Erik,     

Let's not do this, please. You've clearly never seen @saevel25 on the first tee, after all. 😉 We all know "golf" and we all know that some of us will hit some good shots, all of us will hit some

Here's my first (final?) stab at groupings: Saturday @ Bedford Springs, 11:00: @iacas @Slim_Pivot @Divot Master Saturday @ Bedford Springs, 11:10: @Hardspoon

Not sure who has made hotel reservations yet, but @iacas and I will be staying at the Hampton Inn Richmond Airport on Saturday night.

It's 24 minutes from the course.

Also, we set our clocks back that night. So everyone gets an extra hour of sleep! So, trust but verify that your alarms will go off at the right time.

I haven’t, yet. I’ll do it later.

I'm working in Richmond all week, just a coincidence.  I'm going to come home friday, play with Bill on saturday, and drive back down.  I'm staying at a Marriott Courtyard, I think it's just around the corner from the Hampton inn.

My wife and I will be staying there also. She will be sightseeing at Colonial Williamsburg while the rest of us are golfing.

Have her visit Merchant's Square near Willam and Mary.

Have fun, wish I was there hanging out with you all.  I hope the course is better maintained now then when I last and only time I played there.  

They put $2M into it before it reopened last year so I’m expecting it will be. 🙂

Yes, rain can do it's thing on if leading up to days of soaking on any course but outside of that  I have two friends that played here in September who said it is phenomenal shape. 

I have played here quite a bit in the last few years and couldn't be more excited to go back after the reno.👍

I played there in August and it was in good shape.  Really liked the course. 

If you're staying in Richmond, some of the best IPAs you can find outside of New England at The Veil.

Might have to check that out, thanks.

Here's my first (final?) stab at groupings:

Saturday @ Bedford Springs, 11:00:

  1. @iacas
  2. @Slim_Pivot
  3. @Divot Master

Saturday @ Bedford Springs, 11:10:

  1. @Hardspoon
  2. @Hardspoon's genetic near-equivalent
  3. @saevel25

Sunday @ Royal New Kent, 9:00:

  1. @DaveP043
  2. @DaveP043's better half
  3. @saevel25
  4. @Divot Master

Sunday @ Royal New Kent, 9:10

  1. @iacas
  2. @woodzie264
  3. @Hardspoon
  4. @billchao

Sunday @ Royal New Kent, 9:20

  1. @GolfLug
  2. Wife of @GolfLug (non-playing)
  3. @davechen
  4. Offspring of @davechen

I've invited a guest, but he's unlikely to be able to play. However, if he's able to play, then CBS and FOX are going to flex @billchao to the 9:20 group. This is also true if the non-playing person (wife of @GolfLug) opts not to see the sights.

    • This argument is like saying that someone who wins the first two games in a best of three competition hasn't won because there were two rounds and not three.
    • The ace wins, but really they lose when you consider the cost of drinks compared to the small amount won for closest in two!
    • Yes, I'm going to go through all the tutorials. I also started the flight plan to look at Cabot Cliffs in Nova Scotia, but it was too late. Let me get the hang of everything and I'll check out the mutlitplayer. MSFS has already used up 100 GB I suspect it'll get to 200GB.
    • I actually haven't done it, yet.  Used to be in the Traffic menu, there was a section to see online multiplayers or friends--but I haven't been in that menu in months.  I think then you can just get together and decide on a place to spawn, and you'll see one another and can possibly chat on headset.  Not sure if more is needed for the chat piece.  I know I can see my one random friend's online status and his scores on the landing challenges.  Maybe there's some option to "find" them in the sim?  I'll look more into all the multiplayer stuff tonight.  But friend me if you want, and we'll see if we can figure it out. I don't have it on my XBox...pretty limited space on that guy these days.  But, yeah, I bet it'd drain controller batteries like crazy if it's constantly rumbling.  Not sure how much flying, or sim-flying you've done, but if you're just starting out, maybe some of the AI-assist options around trim and power/mix control could help.  The training items seem to be pretty informative, too.   Tying it into golf, I've checked out a bunch of famous courses...everything in the Monterrey peninsula area, a lot of the UK, Bandon, etc.  I usually start at some random city, then pick a course I want to 'play', takeoff, find the course and give it a flyover, then land at the nearest airport in a little 'pretend mission' like I'm going on a golf buddy trip in my private plane. .  Then next time, takeoff from there and pick the next course.  I just made the hop from northern Ireland over to the west coast of Scotland a few nights ago.  In that part of the world, if you enable live weather, it can turn into a real challenge in smaller planes.
    • Day 32 (28 Jul 21) - Played nine today with the 5yr old grandson.  We got back before the rain started.  Used this practice round to work on ball striking and carry distance.  Using the Approach S20, I had planned to used the back distance of the greens as the "carry" factor on the approaches.  Of course if the pin was in the front, then I used the middle distance (center of green) to figure what I needed to carry.  Planned well, executed poorly as the round had only 1 GIR and 4 nGIR.
