Wow 9 weeks I have been absent from this thread . That is the longest yet .
I keep deleting all the pending recruits and saying I am done recruiting . Then i run across another CC with an abandon owner . I search the roster for any sign of recent activity . And invite those that have played in the last week .
I usually do about 20 to 50 in a sitting . Of which we will get maybe 5 players accept the invites . Of which only 1 if we are lucky will acknowledge us / me , play any CC tourneys . Or show any interest in being part of our CC at all .
So we sit at 40 members still . 40 gr8 members that get it . That is fine . But not really .
Just not active enough . We need about 80 . To be able to fill and have more full events .
It is too much to ask the 40 good members that we have to be involved in every damn thing .
CC vs CC Interplay
At least 2 running brackets
in CC challenges .
They already did that for such a long time . They need a little break . Or a long one .
With twice as many good members . That like CC events and formats . The burden would be distributed in a more casual and easy to do manner .
I have always known this . When we were at 60 about a year and a half to 2 years ago . That was a much better number than 40 .
Then some went about their way . And it has been the same ole same ole ever since .
Anyone that is a good CC prospect . Is already in a good CC Duh .
Because of the hundreds of other players we have run across . We are polite and hospitable . Patient and informative . And most all of them would not play CC tourneys . Would not respond to me or other members . Would not friend myself or other members . Just join and ignore everything else .
Lol . i am not even exaggerating . If they don't want to play with others , or talk to them , or even acknowledge them . Why join a CC in the first place ?
Anyway . I am the one that is losing interest now . Things are just too slow . Not just in the CC but all over WGT .
It used to be . Whatever I wasn't getting in one area . I had several other areas of high interest for myself and others to fill the void so to speak .
I thought for a while that what i needed was to get away from the CC . Get back into the game . Get lost in it for a while and do what i have to do to get to TL .
I don't think that is going to happen . For one thing I can't break myself off from the CC thing . Yet . Or ever if ever . Two I work too much and i have to sleep every night .
So I only have time to do CC stuff and play minimally . ( compared to what it takes to lower my average 2.23 points ) . Plus I don't have that drive for it anymore . I lost it . 20,000 missed putts has an adverse effect on ones motivation for some reason .
I am stuck in some sort of limbo . With not enough of everything I want to have driving me for more . Like it used to .
I will figure it out .
In the mean time . We have a gr8 CC . GR8 members . GR8 events . The coolest website in WGT . Is now a virtual ghost town .
Give us a try .
I invite you to take a look .
