Whenever you feel like it, pop in to this topic and say something you like about other members. Don't post an exhaustive list (hell, if I did that, I'd be typing for a few days straight), but post a few, say a few good things, and get out. You can always come back another day to say more. If you're excluded by anyone, don't take it badly. Like I said, I'm going to exclude a few hundred people I appreciate in my first post… it's just not practical. I will specifically though call out my appreciation for all of our mods. I don't have the time to do it individually right now, but they're all very helpful and great contributors. In no order, other than that I may have happened to see their posts recently, or seen a PM, or something… @ncates00, who I appreciate won't back down on his opinions, but also isn't so completely stubborn that he won't possibly change them and avoids feeling personally attacked and lashing back out. He seems to understand that we can all have different opinions, fight pretty hard for them, and then just move on to something else, and that we probably agree on more than is what is said because TST isn't really a place where we have a lot of "I agree" type posts. People only generally post when they disagree. @dennyjones, for welcoming new members like it's his job, and being so kind and nice and helpful. @Vinsk, similar to @ncates00, for being able to argue and disagree and not take it personally, and to give it almost as good as he gets it sometimes. I'd play golf with him in a heartbeat (I just wouldn't stand forward and left of him), as I would with most everyone here. @Asheville and @Rulesman have always been very much appreciated for their rules knowledge, and @Asheville (when he's not bitching about auto-merging posts) in particularly lately for his daily quizzes and questions. More of you should visit the Rules forum and check those out. Now, your turn!
Hey guys, I noticed there wasn't a Mid-Atlantic club here so I went ahead and started one. I invited a handful of guys (@RandallT, @DaveP043, @GolfLug, @jsgolfer) to join already just off the top of my head, but feel free to tag anyone from the area who should be in this group. We can use this topic just for general discussions.
Well, the time has come! It's February 28, and as promised, @mvmac and I will be choosing our first team members from those who have completed their full application in this topic: And of course, the main discussion topic is here: Mike and I will be choosing one team member on the last day of February, March, April, May, June, and July. To be eligible, players must: Be able to participate*, of course! Have a valid handicap index in the single digits, or in exceptional cases (injury, for example), be virtually certain to be there by October Be a member in good standing. Post counts matter, as do the general regard for the member. Bribes help. Just kidding! Complete the application. If you're selected, your "Candidate" badge will be replaced by a "2017 Team Member" badge. * Participation is not only the ability to attend, but to pay about $750 to Mike within a reasonable time frame of being selected. The small fee covers your golf and lodging as well as any goodies we manage to acquire. This thread will serve a few purposes, but the primary goal is simply to announce the winners and discuss the selections as they're made. So, without further delay…
