    I'll take this upon myself this year-- after each season since we protected the Civic, a bunch of us have gotten together and played whack-a-ball for 4.5 hours, with a few adult beverages (and onion rings) mixed in. I'll edit this and put a poll up shorty, but initial thoughts on timing of the outing? The only bad weekend for me is 24-JUN, when I get to go to a funeral.

    My schedule is kind of tough with travel, weddings, etc.

    I could do the weekend of June 10th. Other than that I'm not really free until July.

    I could do June 10, but noon ideally for tee-off... got Nick Cave tickets that night :fonz:

    edit: I am assuming Highfields, but I'm down for anything central or eastern... insert shameless George Wright plug here

    My June is looking good outside of the last weekend, though that is subject to change. July and August look less good because people like getting married and shit at my age.

    Fairly ambivalent to location so long as my dope 2010 Hyundai Elantra keeps purring.

    I might be away the weekend before July 4 but other than that should be good to go. Always happy to arrange or fill out a 4th or whatever on random weekends as well.

    Happy to go wherever. It's a good excuse to drive a little bit.

    The only time I'm going to be in Boston in the short term is over Memorial weekend for Boston Calling.

    I'm really bummed that outside of the inaugural outing, I haven't been able to make any of these. I'd like to have TheRealness call me out in person for once.

    Early polling seems to favor 10-JUN. If anyone wants to get together Memorial day weekend, I am sure we can find people to call out @FL4LW3SS

    edit: Was going to correct the typo, but leaving it up there for my own self flagellation. Which, normally, I can't do at work.

    Seeing as I am not tech savvy, I just tossed a few more poll items on- essentially yay or nay to Highfields on June 10 -- with enough yays, I will contact the course to ensure that they will let this merry band of ruffians blow up their porta-potties again.

    Would June 24 work better for folks? I'm realizing with the concert the night of the 10th and another commitment that weekend, it'll be tough to both play golf and ingest the requisite number of onion rings.

    Guessing around high noon / 1 PM? The John Henry Tavern opens at 11 if I'm remembering correctly

    Who am I kidding, I know it opens at 11.

    I wrote yes for June 17 but also have anniversary dinner that night, showing up sweating onion rings may be poor form.

    Also a bump for more votes... but right now it looks like July 8 may be the play?

    They laughed when I first came up with the Golf Course Babysitting Club idea. And yet here we are with another potential customer. "Oh honey, you look so tired. Let me take the kid for a day. Why don't you go to the spa with your friends and pamper yourself a little bit?"

    Between this and running a Boston DQ I should be so rich....

    That's sick. I have no idea why you would even think of something so damn absurd. Stick to mice, okay?

    They're cribs, obviously. And your club head covers are stuffed animals for the kid(s) to cuddle with as you drink beers, curse like a sailor, and burn your inner bicep with a cigar.

    Infants can fit in a golf club bag. Just kind of drape the kid's arms over the sides.

    Looks like based on everyone's updated info, the ideal weekend for folks is July 22. Alternative that currently works for folks is August 26.

    Any objections?

    I actually have a wedding August 26 so I'm actually out that weekend. Higher education has yet to teach me how to read a calendar.

    I might be 50/50 since my girlfriend's friend is really needy and needs her friends to plan an all day extravaganza because she's turning 30. Plans are still up in the air, so we'll see where that ends up.

    Depending on the event, my presence has been requested as optional without the option. Given I want to still share a bed with her, I am wise to follow this. My hope is it is a girls-only day.

    She's not planning, she's just telling her friends a bunch of vague things she wants and will probably be unhappy with whatever is done. Basically it's a large-scale crisis because she's single and turning 30 and just wants attention from all her friends.

    Ominous.

    "You don't have to go"

    That's a trap, as you know. This is your girlfriend's opportunity to passively aggressively get back at her friend by showing you around like a show pony. She doesn't want you to ruin that for her.

    This is a lose lose situation. Just go in trying to minimize damage. Godspeed.

    I'm friends with her and all the other people that will be there too, so it's not like it's going to be a horrible time. That said, I would much rather be golfing with my Internet friends. Hell, I'd much rather be golfing with a bunch of randos over most activities.

    Still in as far as I can tell. Though I haven't swung a club all year so it'll be uglier than normal. Which might be impressive to see.
