Gathering 2011
« on: June 27, 2011, 06:17:31 PM »
Both Sally and I want to thank all those who were able to attend the Gathering.  It was wonderful getting to know new acquaintances and welcoming friends who came a second time.  We are looking forward to the next Gathering to enjoy sharing golf, fine wine and food, and the company of good people.

Byron, Dave , Sally and anyone else that had a part in the mixer I want to thank you for an amazing time. The courses were great and meeting everyone was awesome. I was in awe watching you create each putter the amount of shaping in a da kine is amazing. Byron you are truly an artist.  I also want to thank you for spending a few more hours with me today creating a fantastic putter. I cannot wait to get it on the course.


I also would like to thank Bruce for all the information that you gave me this week. It was awesome playing with you and thanks for your continued help with my swing and putting stroke.


Can't wait until next year

You deserve all the success coming your way, my friend!

Byron, thank you!  You make all of this possible.  I am just a facilitator, you are the star of the show, and Sally is the ultimate hostess.  :D   
 
As Byron said below our thanks go out to everyone that made the trip out to Huntington Beach this year.  For me, it was great to meet some people that I have only corresponded with via email or spoken to on the phone.  I am really excited by the number of SoCal locals that we attracted this year.  All of you helped to make the 2011 Gathering the great time that it was.  who_dat, pure745, jlevitt9, willsnope, janky, TJ, dbooks, dizzyrider, artpga, and Kenny Shiba.
 
We learned a lot last year that was incorporated into this year's event, and we took away a few things this year that will make the 2012 Gathering will be even better!  8)   See you Spring of 2012 in HB!!
 
Lastly, here is a picture sent to me by dans4fun of most of guys that played golf on Saturday at Meadowlark.  Thanks Dan!

I would like to send a HUGE thank you to Byron, Sally, Dave, Tracy and all the others of Team Byron who made this years mixer a great experience.  I had the opportunity to meet some new putterheads, make some friends and play lots of golf!  I am already looking forward to next years!

First, a hearty "you're welcome" to one and all.  I have a blast organizing the Mixer/Gathering each year, and I am humbled by the turn out and enthusiasm of those who attend.  We will strive each year to make that Mixer better from the previous one and to offer something unique.
 
The 2010 Inaugural was special because it was the first one, and because we got to see Byron work his magic on our putters for the first time.  The 2011 Gathering brought two new putters to the Byron lineup.  New friendships were forged, and others were renewed.  I think that we learned a lot in 2010, and those lessons made for a better experience in 2011.  Now, the challenge is to take 2012's Gathering up another notch.
 
If you have any input, suggestions, criticism, or ideas that will help make the 2012 Gathering the best one yet, please email me (nvgolfdude@live.com) or send me a PM.
 
My thanks to everyone who came to the 2011 Gathering, and to everyone that made the 2011 Gathering possible.

     After much thought, like Janky, I might prefer to remain the mystery man?  Besides, I posted the the pic with your wife so proudly displaying the the putter that Byron made for her!  Did I ever tell tell you what a great idea that was?

Wow What a great time. The shot with the persimmon was the best shot I hit all summer. Must have been the nostalga factor.

Great shots, Dan! 

My favorite memory will still be when Tai threw a golf ball into Janky's back during his backswing... I swear I almost peed my shorts laughing.

That would be a scary feeling. Imagine coming down from the top of your swing with a driver and feeling something hit you in the back... "I've been shot!"
