    We had such a great time last year, Vernon has been kind enough to invite us back again!

    Only thing we need to work out is a date. Vernon said he can handle 100 people even.

    I had a blast last year. Galloway is a VERY VERY exclusive club and one of the top rated courses in the country. The philosophy behind Vernon's dad starting Galloway was to eliminate crowds and taking 5 hours to play a round. On a beautiful day last May we played on a Saturday and there were maybe only 3 other groups playing the entire course.

    Tentative schedule would be...

    Friday afternoon arrival at Taj Mahal and group dinner.

    Saturday golf and car show at Galloway.

    Saturday night group dinner.

    Here was my description from last year...

    I got back a little while ago. The weekend went just perfect. I couldn't of asked for anything more. First time to Atlantic City, the nicest golf course I've ever played in my life and I've played many in my younger years, great food, meeting some users for the first time, seeing Tom again, getting away from Texas for a weekend, and winning $100 overall! Although I was up $1,200 at one point, but hey, I got about 8 hours of gambling in and they paid me $100 to do it. Great weekend!

    Thanks Vernon for organizing it, and picking me up from the airport, and giving me a tour of your beautiful house, and taking me to AC, and letting us on your most exclusive club, and buying supper Friday night, and buying lunch Saturday, and everything else. I'll change FerrariChat.com to VernonChat.com if you don't mind. It was just awesome and I owe you much. Please send the bill.


    My schedule is very tight this year, but possible available weekends I have are as follows. Also, I would really like to attend again, but my attendance isn't required. It would be nice to get 50 users out anyway. When helping to pick a date, try to remember holidays and other events going on in the area.

    Available weekends for me at this point...

    5/8-9/2004
    7/24-25/2004
    8/28-29/2004

    Wow, I just realized I don't have hardly any time available. Maybe you should take me out of the equation.

    Here are some pics from last year...

    I look forward to it again.I hope we have better weather for that morning as I think it scared off some people last year.It would certainly be nice to have the "founder" of F-chat there as well.That's quite a busy schedule you have there Rob.

    I will be there with my Ferrari. Let me know when. Reading Ferrari is May 16th, so that would be a bad date.

    Well, you can get in the hotel, so can walk around it, but you probably have to be 21 to get in it.

    Haven't heard from Tifosi(TomD) yet. He was logged in today at one point.

    It's going to hard for me to work it in. I think everyone needs to pick a date and then I'll try to make it.

    No headache for the local crowd. How hard is it to show up at about the most exclusive country club in the world and get on the course on a Saturday for a wait free round. All this time enjoying Ferraris and great company.

    I am interested.
    I have never played at Golloway. Combo of F-car, golf, gamble, and fun people sounds exciting. It just depends on the date as something may pop up. So far, all suggested schedule date looks okay.
    Rob, what is approx. cost for hotel & golf (or is there any package deal?)

    zero for golf, Vernon and his dad own the whole damn place. Only cost would be hotel and Vernon can probably get us deals on that too. Last year I stayed at the Taj Mahal.

    Everyone, I really need someone to take the lead on this. Not much is required. Vernon is providing the club and he might be able to get some deals for us at the Taj Mahal. I'll throw out a date and Vernon can see if the course is available and I need others to see if it conflicts with any other events.

    How about the weekend of 5/8-9/2004?

    The only other work that someone would need to do is setting up a reservation for dinner Friday and Saturday night for our group. That same person would also need to keep track of the head count.

    It's very iffy for me to attend. I wouldn't know until last second. No reason 20-50 other FC'ers couldn't get together for golf, dining, and gambling though.

    sorry, totally missed this thread, I am probably going to be away 5/8-5-9 but let me add, anyone who loves golf should attend, this course is awesome and Vernon is a great host, last year the weather was a little iffy so it scared some folks off. nevetheless we had a great time plus AC is near by. If we nail down a date other than 5/8-5/9 I can take the lead in organizing this. Todd, I feel the love :) There is no reason we should not get 20-50 guys on this

    Rob, that date works for me. Been a year so you may not remember but those pics you took were from my 348 spider Saturday morning on the way to the course. I would be happy to try to put something together hotel/dinner wise with Vernon's blessing(with my brothers help). I do have a few connections with MGM (Borgata) and Bally's. No comps promised (but a group they would have interest in I'm sure) Let me know. Keep in mind the Reading Councourse is the next weekend, 10 minutes from my house if I can be any help there as well.
