Thanks guys for clarifying that.
I did not come on here to bash Black Diamond or Jack. I have several friends in the club and we always have fun playing AS.
This is the only club I've been in where I could'nt create my own tournament, Almost all are created or made by the owner, and IMO had the same flavor. That's ok, it's his club; but I would not have joined it if I knew he did'nt trust any members except directors to create a tournament.
Hence, I asked if there was a way for me to tell by looking at the member roll of a club. The other 3 clubs that I have been in , I had veteran status, as almost every one was, so I thought maybe that was the difference.
I will just have to ask when I ask to join another club.
I created my own, for interim and to see how it works and still keep putter & shot pal. I doubt I could play without it :-)
No hard feelings on my side Jack, I wish you had'nt even got involved in this question
