2012 Bettinardi Summer Social
« on: April 19, 2012, 07:35:58 PM »
Even though it is a few months away its never to early to start talking bout it. For the first time its open to the public and that should give it some flare of its own.

Who's planning on going?
What new items are you hoping to be released?
Any new head style speculations?

Got the hotel booked already!  Can't wait for more laughs and the guided tour from the extractor.  Also I hear Josh will be modeling a new visor (as I duck)...

The PGA show had some cool 22 cal protos and HMM's.  Looking forward to some more twizzler necks and maybe a flow 3/4.

No social for me this year.....wife made me decide between a vacation with her (no kids) or this.  Tough choice!

Then the whole adoption thing fell on us, so our "vacation" looks like it will be to eastern europe.

That said, I'm hoping to see a bunch of BB2s and BB5s, because I can't putt with 'em.  Rodney and Josh should approve of that!  (please no HMM's!!)

As Michael Jackson sang a long time ago, "I'll Be There."  Mike, sorry I won't get to see you this year, but I am sure your trip to eastern europe will be so much more rewarding!  I'm sure it will be a lot better than the soggy conditions we had at Prairie Landing and OFCC last year.

One question, though, if your new addition is a girl, are you going to name her Betti?

Ha!  I'll mention that to the wife.  The reality is I got to attend last years social in exchange for agreeing to a 3rd child by any means necessary (I won on that, because I would have agreed to that for nothing in exchange).  That said, the girl we are adopting actually has the same name as my wife (in Polish of course).  So we have to figure out something.  Betty might work, LOL.

Actually just realized Betty won't work.  :'(  When I put it together with the last name, a certain "golden girl" comes to mind.

I would like to see some flex fit hats and polos. I expect some cool buckles and accessories. I am guessing there will there will be some putters with some colorful matrix shafts. Lots of twizzle necks and a new mallet and blade style head shape is my guesses.

Flex Fit hat, yer good but, it might be time for a low profile hat, the last one was 2003 :'(

Yes there maybe a new blade head but, very long odds on a mallet, lots of Mallets @ the PGA Show, very few mallets @ the Socials.  Thats the way its been in the past & with no out & out mallet lover (well, I that I know of) going to this year's social its very unlikely.

But hey, go on, prove me wrong, I'd love to see a new bit of booty :o

I'm a heck of a lot closer this year than last.  I may have to hold out until the 2014 Social and bring the Old Guy up for his 70th birthday.  By then, I can save up to sweet talk the Cash Extractor into making a LH custom for him.

Anyone want to be my dealer and pick me up a putter at the social? Don't think the wifecwill let me fly from Australia to buy myself another putter. Think RJB will do a box or slot car this year? Really really want one  :'( yeah that's right I would shead a tear if I could get my hands on one.

I'll still always hope for something different using the Sig #2 head.  Like a near centershaft or short flow.  Just something different.

Wouldn't mind some DASS Mallets w/ Fit.

I'm sure whatever there is will be great.

We attempted to play Sanctuary on Friday last year, but it was underwater....ended up at Prairie Landing instead.  Saturday's official Social round last year was at Olympia Fields, and prior years I think it was at Bob's club (its name escapes me now).  I just remember shooting a big number on Saturday last year....I hope Felix wasn't counting.

Kyle is the man. They do a real nice job over at the Sanctuary :)
