I have stopped gathering lists . Of anything here in WGT . I've done enough .
The wind has been taken from my sails .
This will end my efforts here in WGT .
But with the high sense of accomplishment that I have always felt in my efforts .
That would be showing my appreciation for the accomplishments and
efforts and goodwill of those that effect so many all over WGT .
This was part of what I did as a CC owner for so many years .
Recognizing every accomplishment , move up in tier , lowest score , in
some cases highest score , personal bests , tournament wins , participation ,
helpfullness , availabilty , dedication , humor , knowledge , etc , etc .
I witnessed first hand the immense effect of happiness , motivation , appreciation . These would bring .
And over the years noticing and recognizing and awarding some of the WGT Universe for some of their contributions .
That's all I wanted to do in those efforts .
Of course besides enjoying the fight and climb and addiction of the journey of the game here in WGT .
The learning and knowledge and participation in the Forums . Has been an experience of a lifetime .
As an owner I loved the interaction , participation ,
competitiveness of not only all of the many formats and tourneys that
WGT provided .
But for me even that wasn't enough . I created more events .
In CC match and stroke play titles . Where CC members challenged other members for the titles .
Embedded CHALLONGE Brackets on the weekends . Played in my
website . Which drew not only CC members . But also players from all
over WGT .
The Valley of the SUN CC vs CC interplay . Where we challenged and played some of the top and funnest CC's in WGT .
We had the coolest BLITZ event . That went on forever . All 25
Blitz courses . 5 per week . 5 weeks per season . I don't remember how
many seasons . Maybe 50 .
I had even more ideas . But it wasn't practical . Players
commitment to WGT was already a huge part of their life . To add too
many more events and tournaments and another website . Was taking it too
far . But it was fun for years for sure .
These are excerpts from the first page in the thread .
