  1. ^Eaglequest does volume deals and you can also get toptracer access if you want to get stats and the like, although outdoors really the eye test is sufficient IMHO for my hacker level. I don't think any ranges do practice memberships per say, simply buy a bigger range card at the start and get your price per/hour per/ball down. It really is just a matter of comparing the prices and facilities at the different ranges - some are going to have the crap kicked out of their mats, others won't. I don't think there is much more to it than that.
  2. ^Going to call and raise https://seaforthraingear.com/shop/ols/products/seaforth-rain-gear-rain-hood That said, the one that comes with the Players4 actually works pretty good IMHO.
  3. Ya with how relatively cheap things are there, it makes sense for them to buy it and refurb it - as you say with that location. They'll get the Hwy 1 crowd for sure and could easily make it an offsite resort location for booking teetimes as if you're at the resort, or at least a longer window than non-guests.
  4. You are correct it was his crash - that was the rub about the post crash investigation was how the heck it ended up off the circuit and down in that gully as you describe it. I googled/wiki'd a description (I have no desire to rewatch that TSN 'highlight' again) and that is how it is described. @Phireside - funny (not funny haha obviously) you mention that. I was working at a bank around the corner at the time and was able to walk over and lollygag from across the street. IIRC (and I could be way in left field) the coverage made a big deal, well a deal at least, of Ashley Judd being there? It's a weird useless brain thing to remember, so maybe I've been hit in the head too many times
  5. Must be same connector my mate will take later on - that afternoon arrival time makes such a difference. Normally they are getting in evening or later and then it's do we drive over in the dark and maybe the wet or have an early start the next day. You can take Spud's detour and visit a Tiger park on the way
  6. ^Ya a just brutal wreck on a Sunday afternoon on the California superspeed way. Remember coming in from playing football (or basketball?) to turn on the race and just wow, truly gutted. But ya, as a golf course, never played WP. Back in the day it was too expensive for us yoof and nowadays, ya no thanks.
  7. That's awesome, them were the days I cannot remember if I got taken there as a kid or not, but remember some weekend 1 camera highlights on BCTV, local legend Ross Bentley would have run out of there, maybe Greg Moore too if he wasn't too young.
  8. https://www.registerguard.com/news/20191124/oregon-mountain-passes-to-get-slammed-with-snow-before-thanksgiving This is what I was remembering, from the last pre-covid year. Fortunately I wasn't on airport pickup duty and stuck to Hwy 1 As the story says it was more down towards the border down the Mt. Shasta that got beatup. That is a serious outlier though.
  9. Do we know this already? I stumbled upon it while looking for something else and I don't remember it as such. Keiser's want to redo the Bandon Beach Hotel, out by Coquille Point. https://www.cityofbandon.org/sites/default/files/fileattachments/general/meeting/10334/record_1_decision_and_appeal.pdf
  10. I feel your one-way pain. Few years back I missed a flight to Charleston and the only way I could make our next morning teetime at The Ocean Course was to fly into Atlanta and drive there. Made it to the hotel in Kiawah around 2am... good times, good times. I'm actually doing a Medford OR pickup for one of the guys this year. It's the next shortest drive after Eugene and the only thing to worry about in the winter (if not going in winter then no worries) is dodgy weather on the run from Grants Pass to Canyonville. Otherwise the airport is well served (for it's small size).
  11. Apparently $48 is a few $ off the company's going rate https://kittykeller.com/collections/just-christmas I'm an all in one box and plug it in, job done Xmas tree person (well at the family home, my flat it's um... less ya) but for those that get into it... well we'll see if there is a market for it.
  12. Anyone play Hyde Mountain? It's got a big sign just outside Sicamous advertising its existence at least.
  13. Indeed. Back in the day... well OK only 8 or 9 years ago we joked with a mate who was in sports merch at the time he was missing a trick - imagine all the Bandon-branded tat you could sell?! They are definitely making up for lost time. I like me some headwear, but really that's about the only thing I've been consistently buying the past 10yrs.
  14. When did you last play it and what makes the conditions horrible?
  15. I'm pretty sure I've seen it in Rays in town. It's brewed by these guys out of Eugene https://www.hopvalleybrewing.com/beers/more-beers/ who will be in all the stores as they are a pretty big regional player, of course Bandon pale is not one of their regular ones as such. They have a brewpub just off I5 in Eugene/Springfield to stop at if passing through.
