Sounds awesome Ron. I wish I could call myself a "us open veteran". I've never been (not going this year either) - seriously considering next year though.
I jsut noticed that the original post by rg was from '09, but I'm sure there are others that are looking in here that might be going this year. Can you share with us in this thread some of the cool things/ tricks you have learned over the years?
