2021 Year of the Blade Meetup

Hello, friends. In YOTB 2, we have talked a bit about a meetup. I would like to get that ball rolling. So as not to interfere with the North Star Shootout 2 or the Ope-in, we’re looking at early to mid September.

What: Team Duel for Brand Supremacy
Where: Moorhead Country Club - Moorhead, MN
When: early to mid September
Why: Fuckin’ blades, dude

I need someone to help me with a spreadsheet. Lets see if we can get any interest and go from there.

(September in this area is very nice and not a winter hellscape yet, so the weather should be nice)

Here are the courses at play, if anyone is not working like I am not working.

Thursday:
Painted Woods - Washburn, ND (thruby’s dad designed it)
Hawktree - Bismarck, ND

Meet up course:
Moorhead Country Club - Moorhead, MN

Other fun courses in the area that we will probably end up at:
Edgewood - Fargo, ND (worst website ever)
The Meadows - Moorhead, MN (also a terrible website)

Hoping to figure out:
Fargo Country Club - Fargo, ND
Oxbow CC - Fargo, ND

Other options that are a little bit of a drive:
Hawley Golf Club - Hawley, MN
Wildflower - Detroit Lakes, MN

If travel is safe again by then, I’m probably down.

Since I can’t be there because of the border, I volunteer to make walk up intros for teams/players that can be played over some sort of speaker system. Really get the juices flowing.

Only condition is I have full editorial (okay, maybe like 75%) control over what is said in these intros.

God, I hope travel is safe by fuckin September man. For a billion reasons, but the main one is partying with Bob.

Deeply interested, extremely uncommitted due to thousands of contingencies. Will buy merch and donate to the cause regardless.

If it’s in Fargo area, can we call it The Woodchipper?

Unfortunately my wife probably won’t allow me to travel…what with me being a “sally” and all. But I’ll be there in spirit.

Extremely bummed about the contingencies, but absolutely understand. Hopefully the world starts to figure its shit out by the time we have some details here.

Once we emerge on the other side of this, I have no idea specifically but do have a general sense that most of the travel budget and time off work this summer is gonna go to seeing family out of state.

Pending dates due to my wedding in September, I could probably sneak away for this without being murdered.

Plus, the walk up/intro as done by @BillyBaroo makes me VERY interested.

Fuck yes. My home town (more or less)? Can I swing in and make some popovers in the Moorhead CC kitchen? Drink a “Root Beer” at Rooters? Visit my son in college?

Geezus…could you have found a tougher location to get to? Y’all have fun at this one, sorry I’ll miss out.

With how many sets of blades have exchanged hands within the Refuge, I can’t wait to see everyone recognizing their old weapons

A key party, but for 2 irons.

A tougher location? There’s an airport 12 minutes from the golf course.

It’s not the most glamorous of spots, I will grant you that, but I don’t know what’s tough about it.

Does this work? If so, I will update the initial post.

Looks like view only. @chrismarz, a little help?
