    Something banks have to file to help the feds track people who might be doing illict cash deals...at least I think that's generally what it's for. Any cash deposit $10k or over has to be reported.

    Although the only time I had that much cash to deposit after a glorious casino night($12k) the lady took the deposit and completed it. The other bank employee asked if she did the CTR and she said the system didn't prompt her to do it, so she didn't. Then the other agreed it was probably fine without if the system didn't ask lol

    @LeaLea I’ve never had that problem either.

    Appreciate the sun, sunrise, and pool pictures. You missed out by skipping the detox bowl at the pool. Was there any shade on that daybed or was it just solid sun all day?

    Safe travels for the rest of your journey and looking forward to the rest.

    I considered that bowl! But I’m on a 10-day breakfast burrito run!!!

    No shade. I don’t want shade. Borat and I have a saying: “Next best thing to muscle is TAaaaaaan Fat!!!”

    I believe if you watch Narcos and Ozark, as long as you give a cut of drug dealing or money laundering proceeds to the CIA for off-budget activities they will keep the FBI off your back.

    Last tee time I had at Shadow Creek got canceled last minute, and after watching on TV I'm almost glad. I'd probably put up a 150 there lol

    We are scheduled for a 9 am tee, hoping it doesn't get cancelled. The fringe being that grown up and punishable from what I'm watching makes me dread it. Hopefully they trim that up a bit for us mortals and aren't as hardcore with the pin placements. New to the board but will try and do a trip report for my upcoming trip.

    My biggest problem is that long shot I can never find my ball if I’m little off fairway

    My room is just off the 5th fairway of TPC Scottsdale Stadium course.....

    [​IMG]

    Place is nice but I prefer Kierland, there are a billion little kids here for some Pumpkin weekend, the lady at check in tried to give me a brochure about it, I said “I don’t need that”

    Wanted French toast but couldn’t break my breakfast burrito streak!!! French toast was not my favorite, it was like 11 grain with sunflower seeds and nuts . Burrito was big but worst I’ve had on this trip, INCLUDING McDs. I detected zero meat. That’s what she said. On the plus side I won’t be too full for a pool visit before golf!

    Great day on the golf course! The mat only warm up def did not help my game, but still had a few really nice shots. Driver was trash most of the day, 2-way miss not helped by being unable to hit on the range. But had some nice iron shots into many of the holes and good tee shots on the layup holes. Really liking my new Callaway Rogue FW woods and hybrid and finally got to hit them a bunch warming up since couldn’t hit drivers.

    Our buddies won our inaugural tournament thanks to 3 straight birdies mid-round, we could only match the first 2 as on the 3rd they got up and down from 237 yards for birdie while we double bogeyed the hole with two balls OB .

    We are calling it the “Rehab is for Quitters Invitational” and the trophy has been dubbed “The Wooden Shaft”, at least while this goes are holding it!!

    However an abundance of Tangerine white claw made it all better, at least until the next morning!!!!

    Leg 3 of this trip is being cancelled because I miss my kids too much. They are coming down to Scottsdale for the winter with me the day after Thanksgiving. 3 weeks has been too long to be away from them, and at ages 18, 16, and 12 they won’t be around the house that much longer.

    There are way too many kids at this resort and I prefer to be annoyed by my own kids.

    Now that this trip report is coming to a close I would like to make some final reviews, I’ll address both legs of the trip.

    Travel:
    United Airlines-fantastic. 9/10.
    Interstate highway system 10/10.

    Hotels:
    Venetian-fantastic 9/10. Restaurants and hotel
    Room and pool cabana and general vibe and service is fantastic. I love the Venetian and palazzo. This is def my home post remodel.

    Wynn-4/10. Room they gave me was total trash, VP bar and general casino vibe and general employee attitude is awful. Drink service was fantastic. Crowd is old. Pool service was really good. They need to get rid of all the old crabby workers it’s getting more like Caesars every day. The younger cocktail
    Chicks at pool and casino are the best I’m the business though. But the dealers and whoever else you have to deal with seem annoyed to serve you and why the hell is that sports book bar never open. Shitter 10/10.

    Cosmo—10/10. I had a great time at Cosmo and quickly forgot Wynn. Everyone is so friendly and have great attitude. Also the place is just cooler. The workers seem to genuinely enjoy their lives. The room is much better. I don’t love the pool but you just have to get the day bed and then it’s great.

    Westin Kierland: 10/10. LOVE THE PLACE. Great food. The grounds are breathtaking.

    Fairmont Princess: 3/10. Too many kids, aging property. Average food. Reminds me of those shitty Disney properties. The room is huge and nice though. I have a casita which is like its own separate building with a balcony. Would not stay again.


    Golf:
    Apache Wells, Mesa, AZ 10/10. Great fun easy track and value. Great condition always.
    Bears Best, Vegas 9/10. Fuck your cart path only but it was a great course.
    Royal Links, Vegas 5/10. The other guys liked it, I thought it was a dog track.
    Holmes GC Lincoln NE. 7/10. My home course. They cut down and didn’t replace numerous strategic trees, it’s too open now. Great value.
    Pioneers GC Lincoln NE 9/10. Great course and value.
    Wildhorse Gothenburg, NE—7/10. Great course but greens are too difficult for my skill level and I am pretty good putter. Moreso they are too hard to hold for my crap iron game. Probably a great course for scratch golfers.
    Fossil Trace, Golden, CO—10/10 my favorite of trip.
    Kierland 1, Scottsdale, AZ—8/10. Great layout.
    TPC Champions, Scottsdale, AZ—2/10. Way overpriced for trash course. Greens slow. Mats only on range is a joke. When this was $60 back I’m the day it made sense. For $99 for twighlight it sucks.

    I’ll conclude the trip report here as all that remains is one last pool day and the lengthy drive home. Thanks all for reading and hope there was enough degen gambling hits to keep it interesting between all the golf, pools, and breakfast burritos!!!
