2013 Bettinardi Social
« on: March 04, 2013, 04:18:28 PM »
Hello PTer's,
We are at Bettinardi Golf are proud to announce the details for our 2013 Social.
We are really excited on how the particulars have come together this year.
We will be hosting our party here at the Bettinardi Factory in Tinley Park,IL on Friday June 7th.
As usual, we will be allowing our guests full access to our whole facility. ie. No lock doors or cabinets!
You will get to see exactly how we create our products and the steps they go through to get completed.
There will be an open bar and food, as well as some of the coolest putters and accessories you will find anywhere!
We also have setup golf at Flossmoor Country Club on the Saturday after. It is arguably one of the nicest private clubs in the area. Playing there is a real treat.
If you are interested in attending please give us a call and we will reserve you a spot.
Thanks and we look forward to seeing you in June.

Ahhhhh very nice!

For my personal planning and others I assume as well.

Will Jimmy/Nick be organizing a Friday round again?

Assuming all falls in line here, I can't wait to see everyone again.

I live about 3,500 miles away, I've brought something like 20 to 30 nardi's, I pay 24% import tax on them too & you live local so, you're ONLY looking for a side game :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o

Hey Keith.  Finally something to look forward to!  Here it is March, and we should be getting excited about playing golf, and here in the Chicago area we are getting dumped on with TOOOOOOO MUCH SNOW!!!

Anyway, looking forward to seeing everybody again.  I hear Flossmoor is fantastic since their renovation a few years ago.  Cocktails, Cigars, Friends, and The Best Putters in the World!  What could be better than that!

Pretty sure I'm in, but I need to get "travel approval"....unlike Tony, I don't pay 24% import duties, but I also don't know what this will cost me with the wife.  That may end up making the 24% duties look like pocket change, not sure.

Not sure about anyone else, but I'm feeling like buying a few putters with some booty, colored with red paintfill, and preferably no sight lines.  I hear there's a market for such putters.   ::)

I don't know what this will cost me with the wife. 

Last I heard your wife wanted a football team full of kids running round the house, now there is 11 in a football team, strange for an American not to use the term "Soccer" though :-\

Not sure about anyone else, but I'm feeling like buying a few putters with some booty, colored with red paintfill, and preferably no sight lines.  I hear there's a market for such putters.   ::)

That market has been a bit dry of late but, we're working on it :P

Nah, it would cost too much.  We'd have to add the 24% import duties, even on all the single malt that Tony will be carrying back with him in his kidneys...

Adam, I'm afraid its time not money, unattended projects run over and drop margins quickly, we've currently got very and I mean very nearly all we're worth in a big project, risk/reward you need to pay attention.  Wish it wasn't so but, it won't always be this way and I'll get there, be afraid, be very afraid.

Mike, you got real single malt in the US :o I'll have to chuck that in the cost/benefit analysis model too. 

LOL one day, one day but I want some assurance, floating pitching green, a fleet of panel vans, at least 18 year old single malt, cigars rolled on the sweaty bootys of real 300lb+ minger maids from the local hotel & a decent choice mallets.  Jimmy near shat himself the year Mallet Matt was a late entry and there were no mallets for the social, Glenn had to knock one out quick.  I sure hope that doesn't have a double meaning in the US as well.

Ya its real easy just call ask for Rebecca and say "Im Jimmys guest and he said he is picking up my tab for the social".  Just think that 3 hundo can go towards another pimp putter or buckle.  Jimmys the best.

White smoke is visible....can't wait for the black smoke on the patio around 1 AM!

Oh, and it looks like Jimmy's tab was full (I think his credit card got declined), so I put mine on Nick's tab.  I think his credit limit is higher.   :D

This was going to be the year.  My first Bettinardi Social.  Found out early from Nick.  No conflicts at work.  Perfect.









Then I look at flights.  Why is it that all the cheap flight that people talk about, like under $99 per way on Southwest are never the times you have to go somewhere?  Yes, I said it, have to go, b/c I really have to go this year.

So, I'll be watching flights.  My luck, as soon as I find a ridiculously cheap flight, the social will be sold out.

You watch, just watch.....

Reunion or Putters and Golf.... I think she might be getting the better deal by getting you to come to the reunion! LOL

Question for those going or have gone in the past.  Do you usually go by yourself?  This will be my first and I don't know anyone personally and wanted to get an idea what to expect.

Only one rule, Leave Rebecca be, she mine when I finally get my arse over there. You'll need a whole lot more experience than a couple of HMM's to handle that girl.

I can answer this....it is kind of funny at first (going somewhere to meet a bunch of guys you met online, LOL), but once you meet the people in person, it's like you have known each other for years.  Lots of good people here, both the employees and the attendees.  I also enjoyed the "you aren't what I envisioned a guy called chickenpotpie to look like" sorts of comments.  Looking forward to the golf and the social event itself.

I still need that tour of the factory Jimmy.  Missed that last time.

I hope I don't see an invoice for a box of trash bags now that you brought up the van!!  And I can say that it's a good time just stay away from Felix and his pillows.  The first year I went, I got a separate room but last year I had a lapse in judgement and bunked with Felix.  Depends when people come out as some come out early or just Friday.

If I go which all that is standing in the way is the boss approving my time off. I will be getting there Thursday Evening around 8 or so. I think in years past people have golfed on friday as well although it is not an "official" part of the social
