    Sling set the standard as owner by simply being one of the guys. Whether dealing with members or mods, no arrogance, no crap, just a good guy enjoying his ST friends.

    DFH comes along and, in his own way, does the same thing: becomes the owner/boss while still being one of the guys first.

    IMHO, this site will always do well, and be "home", because of the management style.

    Over a month since R35 has been here... not a good sign.

    Are you talking about Neal?

    He got out of the game altogether. Sold all his shit off. A sad day when I saw that.

    Sadder then when you all thought I was gone.

    You miserable bastards - I'm always here. Just get busy with life. And, when it's -51*, golf seems to be the last thing on my mind. Shitty, but true.

    I do have 2 new drivers, a new 3W and some new wedges. So, I am holding a vigil for Neal in some capacity. ;)

    I'm still around, haven't posted much as my work has kept me busy. Good problem to have these days.

    I haven't talked to YG in a few months, I really need to give him a call. We played together all the time for several years and I miss that -- he was a good stick and pretty funny so it was always fun. Once he graduated from college real life set in so he gave up his membership at the club we both belonged to.

    I'm hoping to play a lot more this year and also hang out here more again. Great group of people here and I can almost get a good laugh or two trawling the forums.

    MGP, let's get together and play a round this year. Our course is part of the "Sunflower League". I've got a card that will allow play at Sunflower Hills or Eagle Bend... both, I believe in your area... for $20 including cart. Looks like I'll have a number of Fridays free. Also, with daughter and her family just south of K-10, we get up that way fairly often on weekends. I met YG, once, just for a minute or two. Seemed like a nice kid. Maybe you could coerce him 'out of retirement' and we could grab 18 somewhere.

    limp -- sounds like fun. I live just a couple miles south of K-10 myself. I also work for myself and have an office in the house so my hours are flexible. I usually play on weekdays since I can and since I hate slow play (like you).

    I'm a member at Shawnee Golf & CC which is an interesting course. I hardly play public courses any more, I just got tired of taking 4:30 to 5:00+ to play a round and getting treated like livestock. We could play wherever you want though. I can get us on Shawnee anytime, weekdays are better, guest rates are better then and can generally walk on and be playing in 15 minutes. They also have 27 holes so that's nice too.

    I haven't played Sunflower in quite some time. I've never played Eagle Bend in Lawrence but I've played Alvamar a bunch of times.

    If we do decide to play I'll definitely see if we can get YG to join us too.
