       i just wanted to take a moment to thank some of the many GR8 CC's . That over time , by virtue of a GR8 owner , or GR8 members , or a GR8 program or agenda , or any combination thereof . Have shown the highest levels of sportsmanship , respect , knowledge and fun And are all GR8 ambassadors to the game . This is only a partial list as it could go on forever . And in no particular order . Many more that are on the complete list . 
      Thank you all for making this game what it is .

    May I express my gratitude <snip>

    OTOH, methinks that some explanation is due. Our last tackling, in one CDP thread, apparently resulted from a misunderstanding on my side. I apopogise for that.

    Therefore, let me propose to settle this and declare it nuisance of yesteryear.

    Peace, if you agree.

     None necessary . We have a propensity to offer our opinions to all comers . if we can remain civil in our varied opinions . Then the open forum is working correctly . i think that typically we remain professional and free of insults and degrading . If we can get through it no worse than we have . and always strive for a professional mutually satisfying difference of opinion . That is when we disagree . Then all should be good . Lol . What did I just say ? Peace man . There is plenty of room for the two of us .

      I am dead serious about how i feel about the impact these CC's have made in so many ways . There isn't a question that what you bring is a big part of it .

      I think there are 61 CC's on that list . Those are my top 61 in no particular order . i have had positive contact with each one of them in one way or another .

      There are many more that i know have earned my respect . Then on top of that .

      There are even still a GR8 number of CC's that reputations as top notch precedes them . And i have not had the pleasure or opportunity to encounter . 

      All in all I am guessing that these lists compile somewhere upward towards 10,000 of the finest WGT members . That's a number I surely can be proud and happy to be connected to . 

      To think that there are perhaps 10 to 50 . maybe 100 times more that i have never even or heard of . CC's and members within them . Is an incredible thought . There are some that estimate many more than that . Who knows ?

    Thank you Paul for your list & including Red Dirt Golf. Also, I appreciate all your forum comments, keep up the good work. We could certainly use more posts like yours.

    I totally agree with the first part Paul.....and at times I have strayed from the remaining civil part.....

    But this is our only outlet to vent, suggest and discuss this great game, but if we can do it in an objective manner, then at least everyone can absorb the data and make informed decisions.

    With the second part and the CC's listed, indeed a very well thought out list and I am pleased and humbled Cosa Nostra was included.

    CC's are the lifeblood of WGT for many players, and without them, many of us would have stopped playing - I certainly would have.

    I am sure there are hundreds more great CC's out there and credit needs to go to their owners and directors for their hard work in making them great clubs. But that is only part of what makes a good CC great - the members make them great.

    So for all members out there, support your CC by playing events, friending other members, playing with each other and conversing in the CC forum, I see no point in being a member and not participating in CC events.

    "We have a propensity to offer our opinions to all comers . if we can remain civil in our varied opinions . Then the open forum is working correctly . i think that typically we remain professional and free of insults and degrading ..."

    I fully agree Paul. I certainly strive to abide by the common decency you allude to...then I provide advice, or tell a joke, or make a mistake...or even post a compliment on a wall...and out they crawl.

    That said, even though I've been accused of everything from being a hypocrite to a drama queen (no examples are apparently necessary)...I've never been accused of cheating. No doubt the worst thing one can be accused of in here. Which also seems to occur with no proof attached.

    ps: thx for incl ABoB.

      You know we all have .

      All we can do is try to be objective . With all of us venting it is up to all of us to try to maintain to some extent . And this does not have to be our only outlet to vent either .

      Absolutely . But why is it that so many do not feel the same way . I know what a good CC member is because I have some . But so few of the many that have crossed our path would even give us the time of day .

      I am sure it is just the luck of the draw . And the fact that most players that are interested in CC's are already in them .
