Does anybody plan on going to this at their local Golf Galaxy?  It seems like they have some pretty good giveaways.  I've never been to a midnight product launch and myslef and a couple guys from work are going.  Should I expect it ti be real crowded for Thursday night?

No, not going. 30 miles away and working the next morning. No, I have not been to a midnight launch. Yes, I had been to launch events. Some had door prizes, OEM reps etc... Others had nothing but a sign and a 50% trade in boost.

Last week's Callaway launch had nothing. You couldn't tell it from any other Sat.

It's this Thursday night from 11:59pm to 2am. The flyer I got from GG shows three giveaway and all are instore drawings: 1)Taylormade bag w/ new R1 driver, wood, hybrid, and rocketbladez iron set, choice of driver/wood/hybrid, and Lethal Golf Balls for 1 year (12 dozens).  There is also the hit their driver farther than your driver and get a Lethal ball for every yard longer (up to 12 balls max).  These seem like nice prizes for a midnight launch.

I hate to burst everyone's bubbles, but no, it's not each store that will be giving the prizes away. The flyer is indeed a little misleading. There will be names drawn from each store after close for the prizes. Those names are sent to corporate and the winners are determined there. so ~80 stores. 3 names(1 for each prize) per store, grouped by what prize they were drawn for at the store and the winner comes from those names.

I won the balls last year as well. I wasn't there for the drawing so when I first started listening to the voicemail I thought I had won the driver! Then the manager hooked me up with extra balls from the 3 wood challenge so I walked out with 2 dozen balls. I'll be in the area tomorrow after a hockey game again like last year again so I'll be attending. Here's hoping I can win something again!

Not to worry, if you miss the event I'm pretty sure they will still have TM products for you in the morning when the stores reopen.  I guess I wouldn't get too worked up about it.  Honestly I think they midnight launches are kind of fun, but what do I know?

Get tuned for the R1 and get one Lethal ball per yard gained.  Anyone else see a problem with their model?

I am going to go, and hit my gamer 200yds.  Then smoke the R1 on their jacked up simulator, it should register 310 - 340yds, per usual.  Do you think they will give me 110 golfballs?

I was thinking of putting my gamer driver (superfast 2.0) and blasting the R1 to end up with a crap-ton, but I guess the limit is 12.

Supposedly they are having a launch weekend that starts tonight at 11:59 PM-2AM.  It also lasts through the weekend.

They are having R1 fittings, extra trade in value if you buy a new TM stick, ball giveaways, etc.  I might ride by the Winston Salem store but wondered if anyone else was thinking of going tonight?  It feels like a Black Friday midnight sale to me or something...
