I'm not sure I qualify, but if you're including ALL of PA, I guess I'm in. I'm in the chimney part of PA, of course.

Wikipedia counts Virginia to ny. Everywhere I looked seems to have a different idea of what mid Atlantic is.

When I log in to my aaa.com account, it routes automatically me to midatlantic.aaa.com.  Those are my credentials for joining.

I'd have been certain that VA is included in "mid-atlantic" but e-how sites the Census bureau as defining only as New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.  (http://www.ehow.com/info_8124434_states-midatlantic-states.html)

So it looks like PA is the only state that everyone agrees in Mid-Atlantic?  So Erik, in the chimney part of PA, about 400 miles from the Atlantic, is more legit than most of us.

Actually, if you google-image search "mid-atlantic" you'll find maps showing NY to MD, PA to VA, and MD to GA.  One even just shows Iceland, but I think that's something else.

Welcome to the forum!

I've been down to Charlottesville a couple of times for softball tournaments at UVA.  Its a beautiful place and we always had a blast.  Except for the drive.  It was MUCH further from DC than I expected.

Maryland is in the South!  That's what I always tell people to mess with them.  Originally from CT, MD is "south" to me although I would consider it mid-atlantic.  PA is northeast, no?

Wellcome @CallawayJ !

Your post made me think of something that might interest you and some others here.

I am a member of a USGA governed club that is not associated with any particular course--I guess you could call it an online golf club.  There is a larger DC area club, but some of us created an offshoot a couple years ago because the larger club had hundreds of members and maybe only a dozen people that would show up.  Its really just a group of guys that get together once a month at courses around the area, mostly northern Virginia.  I think the dues are $25 a year, which just goes towards trophies for the "majors" and you have to get a subscription to ushandicap.com which costs about the same.

If anyone here is interested in joining the club, send me a PM and I'll introduce you to the guys who are running the show.

    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      I'm liking this:   That makes a lot of sense.  Local Retailers may be getting some of the last years models dumped on them when the new clubs start cycling through.  I was thinking about doing the demo days thing to get a taste of what is out there.  The R7 limited and R11 Taylormade Drivers were good to me.  I think a X2 hot/Big Bertha/etc/ect would probably be more forgiving.  Still, I look at the clubs of old... the Cleveland Launcher Comp / Callaway Hawkeye and think: "If I can buy that club for $20... and I can buy newer (used) for $50-$100... hmmm.  Spinning the wheels.  Thanks for the advice though I really appreciate it. If anyone has a Driver / had a Driver they loved from (2009-2014) let me know about it!  What did you like/didn't like?
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      I just found out that my ex-home course, Sunol Valley Golf course, went out of business last month.  I played 2 - 3 times a week for 2 years not too long ago.  The course was done in by shrinking golfers, and 500% increase in water cost in the last 4 years of CA drought.  They could not make money.   Another ex-home course is now doing business as a golf and foot golf (soccer golf) course.  Golfing customers were not enough. Another course nearby (Santa Clara Tennis and Golf Club) is going to turn into a parking lot for a recently built football stadium. It is sad that despite improved economy in Bay Area, CA, golf business is in decline.  They have been in decline since 1990s but most of the courses around here survived 2008-9 recession.  The current drought and the resulting water cost going through the roof appears to be the final nail in the coffin for the weaker courses.   Sad.
    • Injury Question
      I didn't play golf for about 11 weeks due to it being difficult to play with work after day light savings time fell back.  Now, from the sounds of it, I played through the majority of the repair time as I walked 9 holes 4-5 times a week with 1 day of walking 18 for 7-9 weeks after the injury....I know, I'm an idiot. As it stands now I don't really notice it 90% of the time, its just something that pops up on a swing every now and then.  From the sounds of your healing time, I may have caused it to heal improperly leaving me with a hitch....  If I really just need to not do anything and it'll heal over time then I'd gladly do it, kicking and screaming the entire way as I already had a plan in place to push my handicap into the single digits by years end. I don't like the sound of having something happen as "I get older," I'm only 26 damn it .
    • Injury Question
      I had this injury last spring/summer. You have pulled your intercostal muscles in your ribs. It is a nasty injury which requires a lot of downtime (4-6 weeks minimum more like 8 weeks) to let them repair. It happens as we get older. You need to research ways to heal and take time off from doing those motions such as winding up and releasing. It took 4 months to completely heal and that included lots of ibuprofen as an anti inflammatory and stretching. Take the time off to stop the inflamation or it won't go away and could take longer to heal. It is a difficult process that takes time and when you first feel like you are okay you are more than likely to re injure and make it as bad or worse. You just have to take your medicine or that painful stitch won't go away.
