    I really intended on attempting a live TR, but I couldn't find the time to start the thread before the trip so a recap will have to do. There have been some great live reports and fantastic recaps of recent trips - I'm certain this one won't measure up. However, the reality that is anything-but-Vegas quickly set back in and this is my way of escaping from the shit-storm that awaited my return.

    First the characters:
    Ty Webb Jr - me - name chosen as Caddyshack is my all-time favorite movie and had to add the Jr. as "Ty Webb" was taken on the "other" board. This would actually work out well, because joining me on this trip was...
    Ty Webb Sr - my father - seems appropriate to give him the Sr. title and now that he is retired he lives the lifestyle of the Ty Webb in the movie (minus the action with Lacey Underall) - a life of leisure and lots of golf, and he's fun to take to a party.
    Danny Noonan - best man in my wedding, best buddy since we were in the 5th grade, a regular on our annual April trip, great guy, funny - everyone wants to be his friend.
    Lou Loomis (the caddy master) - one of the original regulars on the annual April trip, lives down the street, drinks the same booze that I do, great guy and life of the party - if he's losing at the track he raises the price of Coke to $0.50.
    Al Czervik (to be renamed ILobster on this board if he can ever figure out how to register correctly) - the other original regular on the annual Vegas trip, neighbor, guy who will do anything to help you out when needed, guy most likely to get us thrown out of a casino/bar/restaurant/party for being too much like Al.
    Dr. Beeper - newer to the annual April trip (his second), but a super nice guy and willing to roll with whatever the group wants to do.

    Next - the plans...

    As a Bears season ticket holder and massive fan of all things NFL, I would miss the draft in my home town again.

    Awesome! Looks like a great agenda to start. Hope it all worked out and you hit everything you wanted to. The Caddyshack motif is absolutely brilliant. What a great movie.

    Just remember, gambling is illegal at Bushwood, sir.
