TST Takes on Sand Valley, WI (July 18-23, 2021)

Recommended Posts

So I've taken a look, coming from the DC area it'll cost me about the same to go to either Milwaukee or Minneapolis, and flight schedules aren't awful for either one, even with a stop getting to Milwaukee.  If someone is going to join me, I'm probably up for playing Lawsonia on the Friday, staying overnight at Milwaukee, and flying home Saturday.  I may even decide to catch a baseball game, the Brewers are at home that day.  If anyone else chooses Milwaukee, I hope we can coordinate and share a ride.

I really want to try to fly out of Milwaukee and hit up Lawsonia, but I'm not sure it's going to work. The flight times out of there are not great, and it's a decent amount more expensive than flights out of Minneapolis. 

In any event, I won't be able to stay overnight in Milwaukee on the Friday. But if I do end up flying out of Milwaukee, I will definitely join you at Lawsonia.

@cipher and I are likely going to play Lawsonia on the last day, driving back to his house that night. I think @Hardspoon is likely playing as well.

I’m interested in playing Lawsonia. Looks like I can get a flight out of MKE around 9pm on the 23rd which should be plenty of time.

What time are the MKE people arriving on the 18th? I’ll try to arrive around the same time and we can carpool.

My flight arrives at 11 am. I might even think about playing on the way up. Plenty of sunlight.

I'm looking at about 11:39 for arrival to MKE.

I can catch a flight that arrives at 11:09 AM if you guys want to meet up at the airport.

Sounds good, I pulled the trigger on my flights, Arrive MKE at 11:39 on Sunday, 7/18.  I'm scheduled to leave on Friday at 6:51 PM, I can change that if I decide to catch a ball game.  @GolfLug, we're going to have to hustle if we're going to drive a couple of hours to Lawsonia, play golf, drive 2 more hours to MKE and get you on a 5 PM flight.  Its do-able, I think, but barely.

Yea I’m looking to book my flights, too. Right now I’m looking at 11:09 AM arrival on 7/18 and 6:29 PM departure on 7/23. We can meet up at the airport, split a car rental, then do whatever on Sunday.

I have never flown with my clubs so I have to get a travel bag, but it looks like I can check in my golf clubs with United and take all of my clothes and stuff in a carry on.

You might pack some clothes with your golf bag, as long as you stay under the 50 pound limit.  I'm on United too, we'll probably meet in baggage claim.

Yeah, as long as we are done by about 1 pm should be fine. Allows some leeway for Friday rush traffic. PM me your cell number again. Lost quite a few numbers when my IT guy did a factory reset on my cell.

MKE is also pretty easy and fast to get to your gate.  It is still pretty much a small town airport in a lot of ways.

Just booked a flight out MKE at 4:20pm (nice) on Friday. I'm waiting to book my flight into MKE for a little bit - the prices at the times I want are a little high at the moment. But I'm in for Lawsonia on Friday morning.

Is that going to give you enough time to play and get to the airport? We were talking about time possibly being an issue for @GolfLug with his 5:00PM flight.

I think we can probably make it work. Worst case, if I and @GolfLug have to book an earlier tee time than everybody else, I'm fine with that. Or I can play as a single. I might be tired of you all by then. 😛

@billchao, @DeadMan  @DaveP0432 hour drive from LL to MKE. So estimating have to be done by 1 pm. If we can tee off at 8:30 am..ish.

BTW, @DeadMan flying out even earlier, no?
