    Our local politicians have decided to close everything apart from essential services for the next fortnight as a circuit breaker strategy. Despite all the safeguards currently in place, golf is out. There is not much logic behind the decision, 100 people over 100 acres, not touching any surfaces etc?? But it is what it is and gurning about it doesn't help. At least, at this time of year, the effects are not huge, I only get to play a shortened course on Saturdays. I guess I will need to find another channel to focus on for the next few weekends. Roll on 14 days!!!

    Nothing is the same as it was. We didn't have to close our course in 2020, ,but who knows what 2021 will hand us. We had to present an entire list of protocols put in place to remain open. Most of those have been raised, but the mask mandate is still in place for our clubhouse. Thought we'd seen it all in our 74 years. 2020 has proved we were wrong.

    The state of TN isn’t participating in COVID.

    So very much not looking forward to what winter is gonna bring this year. I’d been able to keep some semblance of sanity by getting outside and playing golf this summer. I don’t ski, snowboard or snowmobile in winter. Kinda dreading it to be honest...winter is coming ‍♂️

    Oh, it’s for sure here. What I meant is TN isn’t participating in COVID lockdowns.

    95% of the country is like that. That's why we're in the shape we're in right now.

    Are we to continue the banter? Asking for a friend.

    COVID is here and will be for awhile. We all better get used to it and find a way to live with it.

    You in TN?

    (Sorry to hear it, IG. All this mess was supposed to flatten the curve and then be behind us. Looks like that wasn't the plan after all.)

    Duh. Nevermind. I just read your profile.

    Yep. There's also a Murfreesboro in NC, and there's a Chapel Hill in NC. Hey FWS, does your Chapel Hill have a nasty odor like ours? Here, it's mostly noticed by NC State and Duke folks :D
