    SimonTheBeetle:
    LOL No, I meant more like... I dunno... a Gold Putter, unlimited supply of balls of his/her choice, Amazon Gift Card worth $1,000, etc.

      I couldn't agree more . But I feel that there are many milestones and accomplishments and achievements and records that individual players and CC's have been doing all along that are worthy of those prizes or rewards or whatever you want to call them .I think WGT dropped the ball years ago by not incorporating just rewards into the results .

      I consider trophies , awards .

      I just randomly picked 12 years plus . To hopefully minimize the trophies I would be making lol .

      CONGRATS to you TRAILBLAZERS .

      Now I'm thinking the criteria to be prior to 2010 .

      click here to see

      I'm pretty psyched to have come up with 20 so far . I am sure there are a lot more .

     

      lol I just found 20 more, I wouldn't be surprised if I come up with 200 or 2000 .

     

      Just found this .

    Earliest member?

      As I have been going along . The more I am driven . The more I respect and admire and appreciate these GR8 TRAILBLAZERS .

      I am now committed to recognizing all of them . As they should be . A tribute . For so many reasons . Their tenacity , perseverance , paving the way , dedication . Not the least of which to have a trophy to be proud of . One like this that represents so much . Well deserved . Some may not have ever received a trophy for their contributions . I hope they understand this . As it is possible that in a mere 6 months . It may be too late to say thank you .

      This GR8 platform . May not be the main and only game in town . The focus is likely to change . This whole wonderful universe may just fade away .

      So I better get to work .

      Thank you TRAILBLAZERS .

      There is no way I can thank everyone properly . There will be a lot of trophies prior to 2010 . But the 10's possibly 100's of thousands of players from 2010 and 2011 . Are just as worthy . Some even more so .

      As much as I would like to . I cannot make that many trophies . I couldn't possibly even gather up all of your names .

      But I can tell you right here . That when I came up . So many of you stepped up . I was overwhelmed with humanity . It inspired me to go " balls to the wall ". For years . At first I had way over 500 friends on my list . 

    TOOK A LONG TIME FOR MY STUBBORN ...............

      It was very hard for me to have to delete so many of those GR8 people from all over the world . That I had met in my thousands of ranked rounds . And Match play rounds . Where I met some old timers with 15,000 , 20,000 , 25,000 Match play rounds under their belt . They were so cool . Tons of stories and information and help . A few of them even let me win a few Matches .

      By then I had a CC . Had to delete them . Many were ready to leave the game by then . But it was still hard .

      So all of you 2010 and 2011 players / members . My hat is off to you , a big bow , a handshake , and a thank you . As well .

      You can see the trophies here

      I sure have my work cut out for me . I am only interested in the year of the start date . Then whether they are still active .

      Is there something easier than clicking on the profile ? Seeing a start date of 2007 , 2008 , 2009 . Then scrolling down to see if they are active ?

      I don't think so .

      It is a bummer for me to find so many that stopped playing in Jan , Feb , Mar , Apr , even May . Probably 75% of the pre 2010 players I have viewed stopped playing this year . So far I would say that to be over 200 players .

      I doubt they will be back . Considering the present state of things .

     please read throughout this thread

      For anyone that doesn't know me . I ran a small but strong CC for 5 years . Valley of the Sun Casual Club .

      I was a fully involved owner . To say the least . One of my main things was recognizing every member along their journey . From their firsts , their bests , their longests , and their wins . And other accolades as they came about . Participation , humanity , selflessness , creativity , humor , contributions , etc .

      I made trophies for all those things and more . A trophy making fool . I also award first posters in the WGT forums with a 1st poster award . " WGT KICK ASS 1ST POSTER AWARD " . Some ( forum experts ) found it hard to believe I was serious and not mocking them . I felt it was a motivator . A positive push to encourage more posting . To help them feel more comfortable .Turns out I was right .

      I have awarded trophies to some of the amazing Andyson Memorial Tournament contributors . IE: PaulTon , SidersBest , etc . I also have a tribute to Andyson . In my website . A man I fought toe to toe with in these forums . But I respected the hell out of him . 

      So anyway . I gotta leave for work here in a few . But I find myself totally in awe of this group of " TRAILBLAZERS " . I want to recognize them with trophies . The list is going to be large . But limited to active players who started prior to 2010 . Although as I said above , 2010 & 2011 players and many many players of all years are just as worthy . But there are probably several hundred thousand of them . And even compiling a list of those . Is something not even ColumbusStorm would undertake .This is for the very 1st TRAILBLAZERS that are still blazing .

      I am already gathering names ( slowly ) . Going through old CC Club owners friends lists and some of their members lists . Every single one of them . ( I found active 2009 players at the top of the first page just joining that CC )  Eliminating all but 2007 , 2008 , 2009 active or active as recent as May . ( because with things as they are . Little chance they will return before December ) . I ( we ) had better start now if ( we ) want to thank these " TRAILBLAZERS " .

      And I say " we " . Because first I am going to ask if you all are behind me on this ? Second if that is the case . GR8 Thanx . Then I am going to ask your opinions on the best way to pay this tribute . Then I am going to ask that you help me and submit some of these active TRAILBLAZERS names for me . To make trophies for .

      If you all don't feel this like I do . Then majority rules . And I will just do it myself . In my own small way .

      Thank you .

    I'm welling up here.  Thank you very much.   Only took 12 years to get a trophy picture on my profile.  Cheers :o)

    Thanks for the fun round of golf today and the recognition!

    My account started...

    Member Since 18 Jan 2008

    I got really good early and then they bumped me up so fast I couldn't even hit some of the fairways.

    The better you got the farther back they moved your t-box.

    I also have only ever played on a Mac, hence the high score.

    The game looks terrible on my 5K iMac but looks very good on my iPad Pro.

     

    Cheers!
