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?

Hello, Virginia Beach area golfer. Nice meeting you all. Definitely 'southern' Mid-Atlantic. a1_smile.gif

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.
