    This may be a bit presumptuous but I’m sure the Ferrari Chat net stretches far and wide. Apart from my family, my two passions in life are cars and golf. To his end, I have been attempting to find a contact that would enable me to play a round at exclusive Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove and maybe even get a glimpse at the car collection. Can anyone here offer any help?

    The best way is to track down a charity auction and pay whatever price gets it done. I did it last year and it was worth every penny.

    Thanks for the tips guys. Please let me know if you become aware of any charity event that might address this issue. I know Rush Copley has an outing there every year but their price was way out of my public servant budget.
    Ps. How are the new radiators Paul?

    I have been to the car collection, and the whole complex, several times. It's been about 10 years. They are good people. I'll see if I can find pics to post. The last time I was there I only had a 35mm camera (post digital days), but I'll see what I can do. It's impressive... the whole place is.

    I'm playing Rich Harvest the end of June (a friend is coming in from out of town and wants to play). I know a member who is a great guy and very accommodating. That being said, it's not cheap for the members to bring guests. In addition to getting me and my friends on, I've already asked him for four spots for a charity auction, but that's not going to happen until late summer. I'm hesitant to ask for another favor, but PM me what you think you would be willing to pay to a charity (tax deductable) and how many spots. He's a very nice guy and won't take $ for himself, but if it goes to a charity he supports he might consider it.

    As far as the car collection here are some pics I took a couple of years back:

    1956 Corvette convertible;
    1932 Auburn Speedster;
    Porsche Speedsters;
    A 1932 Cadillac V16 once owned by the Chairman of U.S. Steel;
    A 1934 Duesenberg Town Car;
    Seven Lamborghini Countaches;
    A Mercedes Gullwing;
    Ford GT;
    Ferrari GTO
    1961 Mercedes Benz Roadster;
    Shelby Cobra, and no it's not a kit car;
    Al Unser Jr.'s 1992 Indy 500 winner; and
    best of all Cole Trickle's Mellow Yellow sponsored number 51.

    There's a bunch more that I don't remember.

    I played there once. A lot of Countachs IIRC. He built the course after he realized he wasn't getting into Augusta. Pretty cool place, but I don't have an in--sorry.
