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.

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 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.

    • "With the delta variant taking off around the U.S., the federal government Tuesday updated its masking guidelines for fully vaccinated people. The new advice is to mask up indoors if you live in a place with "substantial" or "high" coronavirus transmission. (The guidance for people who are unvaccinated remains the same: Always mask up indoors.)" Check your county's transmission rates:   Do You Need To Wear A Mask Indoors Where You Live? Check This Map The CDC wants vaccinated people to wear masks indoors if the coronavirus is spreading widely where they live. Find out the level of virus transmission in your county. And, this was interesting: "A week after the crowds descended upon Provincetown, Massachusetts, to celebrate the Fourth of July -- the holiday President Joe Biden hoped would mark the nation's liberation from COVID-19 -- the manager of the Cape Cod beach town said he was aware of "a handful of positive COVID cases among folks" who spent time there. "We are in touch with the Health Department and Outer Cape Health Services and are closely monitoring the data," Alex Morse told reporters. The announcement wasn't unusual with roughly half of the country still unvaccinated and flare-ups of the virus popping up in various states. But within weeks, health officials seemed to be on to something much bigger. The outbreak quickly grew to the hundreds and most of them appeared to be vaccinated. As of Thursday, 882 people were tied to the Provincetown outbreak. Among those living in Massachusetts, 74% of them were fully immunized, yet officials said the vast majority were also reporting symptoms. Seven people were reported hospitalized. The initial findings of the investigation led by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, seemed to have huge implications. Before Provincetown, health officials had been operating under the assumption that it was extraordinarily rare for a vaccinated person to become infected with the virus. And if they did, they probably wouldn't end up passing it on to others, such as children too young to qualify for the vaccine or people who were medically vulnerable. The idea that vaccines halt transmission of the virus was largely behind the CDC's decision in May suggesting vaccinated people could safely go without their masks indoors and in crowds, even if others were unvaccinated. But that assumption had been based on studies of earlier versions of the virus. Delta was known for its "hyper-transmissibility," or as one former White House adviser put it "COVID on steroids." "What has changed is the virus," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert and Biden's chief medical adviser. When a vaccinated person gets infected with delta -- called a "breakthrough infection" -- "the level of virus in their nasopharynx is about 1,000 times higher than with the alpha variant," Fauci said in an interview Wednesday with MSNBC. All indications now are that the Provincetown outbreak investigation is among the pieces of new evidence behind the CDC's decision to ask Americans to once again put on their masks indoors, even if they are vaccinated."   CDC mask decision followed stunning findings from Cape Cod beach outbreak - ABC News The CDC's mask decision followed stunning findings from a Cape Cod beach outbreak. The viral load of vaccinated beachgoers changed what we know about the delta variant.  
    • It would be interesting to know if they'd perform any differently with the belt device. As I wear a different wrist "health" tracking device the apple watch wouldn't work for me. Also, have you noticed any wear on the face of the sensors from rubbing on the bottom of your bag?
    • Had a birdie lip out on the final hole yesterday which would have given me a 67 and equal my age. But 68 is only the 2nd time I've ever shot that so pretty happy anyway. Golf is a crazy game. Last week I played 3 rounds and only had 1 birdie total. This week after 3 rounds I've had 15 birdies. Playing from the senior tees of course but this is the best golf I have played at anytime in my life and I have been at for over 50 years. Maybe it's time to retire. Ha. 
    • Breakthrough COVID infections show 'the unvaccinated are now putting the vaccinated at risk' Occasional breakthroughs are expected with any vaccine, but more transmissible variants... Now the choices of the unvaccinated are affecting those who have done the right thing. It’s now more like smoking where your “personal choices“ affect more than you.
    • As for golf, Schauffele is leading at -11 with Matsuyama at -8 with 2 to play.
