  3. Stableford works for me...its fun and easy to understand. I haven't played many other formats to give a good suggestion, but honestly, net stroke play is fine too. Keep it super simple since we will be a small group.
  4. Tonneau Cover

    I can't speak to the flip covers but I have a BAK revolver (hard shell roll up) cover on my Tacoma. Works well, no leaks into the bed, I would definitely buy it again. I chose roll up over a flip, mainly because I didn't like that the rear window was blocked with the flip cover fully open. The roll up cover is no higher than the rear head rest when open.
  5. I use a mash-up of companies. Under Armour storm pants, Ping short sleeve pull over, Sun Mountain long sleeve jacket. The Ping jacket is more water resistant than water proof but has worked well. I much prefer short sleeve jackets if the temp allows, I seem to get too bound up in long sleeve jackets. If I was buying new gear, I would lean towards the Rainflex or Tour Series.
  6. Well done! Good luck at the national championship.
  7. The Cable Stayed Bridge

    The Roebling Bridge here in Cincinnati was the unofficial test run for the Brooklyn Bridge; note their similarity. I've been a part of the design team for 2 cable stayed structures. Pomeroy-Mason and Ironton-Russell, both over the Ohio River, and both using a similar design has the Cooper River shown earlier. Long span bridge design is by nature "cutting edge", but bridge owners do not like to be cutting edge for fear of maintenance problems. A perfect example is the East section of the Bay Bridge. The self anchoring design is a first in the US and the designers and contractors are learning as they go and the state is paying the price for the experiment. The artistic, curved structures are more common in Europe and Asia because of looser building codes, construction practices, and willingness to try newer materials like carbon fiber. Not to mention they are a b*tch to design. Ohio is doing a study on carbon fiber prestressing strands vs steel strands, unfortunately the cost for carbon fiber is currently 4X that of steel. State DOT's do not have room in their funding to increase costs by 4, so we tend to stick with what is known to work.
  8. Great seeing everyone this weekend, I had a blast as always. Hope everyone made it home without issue. Thanks @Rob Thompson for hosting and @iacas for organizing. Looking forward to the next one.
