    But why is it that so many do not feel the same way

    Gee that is the $64,000 question.

    It is hard to get the right mix of players but unless the player is recommended, then it is difficult with any new recruit.

    Owners cannot see their CC history (how often they change, play or interact) and the player will never really know what the club is like until joining. No due diligence here - you can look at score history, not a lot more.

    As you say, most players who are in CC's will not move unless they are not satisfied, so getting good new members can be difficult.

    I have been in 3 clubs - first was when I hit TP/master a large 250 member club. I joined as it was primarily Australian so was easy to get games in with members as we were mostly in the right time zone. However I disagreed with a few things so left and the club imploded.

    #2 was started by a mate - 12 or so members - all really good guys and we would play AS together all the time. Slowly they stopped playing.....so I finally left after explaining to the owner (we remain good friends)...sadly he closed the club that day.

    #3 and probably last (unless I get booted out) is CN. Whilst we have a few members who do not play, it is pretty active and a great bunch of guys. People that I would happily have a beer with and talk to the wee hours if we met. It is not large, nor do we want it to be, but we want the right people who fit in and will play. I know the members by name, nit by a ID or number. I sometimes feel members of large CC's just get a little lost. It is fine to play tournaments, but it is also another to learn about them and what makes them tick.

        My question was a bit rhetorical . And the answers are many . I still think it is very odd that so many WGTers defy the easy protocol of a normal CC . Surprising , their lack of experience in what it takes to become part of a working group

      I know that we could not make it any easier for them to fit right in and feel right at home .

      So I still believe that bad luck can only last so long . And good luck will find its way at some point . 

      Another odd and perplexing scenario is the CC's who's owners have abandoned the CC months and years prior . I have an extensive list of these CC's . Most are larger than 100 members . I have found that almost half of these CC's are filled with 90 % recruits . And new members join everyday . I am not kidding . These players remain recruits for ever . Without any guidance , leadership , assistance , or any clue .

      I have invited the members that have showed activity in the last couple weeks . Sometimes 2 or 3 times . I have only had a few of them respond . 

      The abandoned CC's with more tiers and activity . Also seem content to remain stagnant .

    .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

      Another can of worms . I don't think I have been accused of it either . 

      As a result of 3 now CC members and two fellow CC owners being disabled for what appears to be using a shared account . Each incident has a family member tied to the ISP.

      Something in these cases was not acceptable to WGT . I could see no wrong doing .

      For no reason neither the fact that I am a CC owner or the fact that I knew these players . Means in any way that I am aware of anything these players do .  I only know what I see and what I am told . Certainly not acceptable to be guilty by association . And am not at all concerned if there are those that doubt that .

     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

    Thanks mate.  It's good to read your kind words. 

    -Roger
