***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

    @ Fella: I would love to have paid someone to do that ditch work,but around here, they want your house and first born child to get anything done ! Besides, I am like one of the grumpy old men,in that i wanted it done correctly so i decided to do it myself.

    My dad used to say, “Why pay for incompetence when you can do it yourself and have it for free?”

    thanks for your critique

    I like the line, which is tongue in cheek. My dad did everything himself. Painted the house inside and out, put on a cedar shake roof, dug an exterior french drain and installed the sump system, remodeled the kitchen and bathroom. He was far from incompetent, but that’s what he always said when someone asked why he didn’t hire someone.

    I took your post as humor FWIW. :)

    BTW, how was Rochelle Ranch?

    Much better with insect repellant, which I didn’t have last year. A longer walk than I remembered from last year, but they let me out at 6:30am and I didn’t see another golfer on the course until I made the turn. Great weather.


    Very cool HHM. Nice Pronghorn right there.

    Took the fam on a short 5 day trip to Port Austin, MI. At the tip of the "thumb" here in Michigan, on the shore of Lake Huron. Bit on the cool side (low 70's) and swimming in the lake is bracing do to the cool water temps. But everyone is enjoying themselves. Lodging is right on the beach, and a nice pool for everyone to get wet. Two block walk into town for shopping and the donut shop. This morning, sitting outside with my cup of coffee, taking in the sunrise. And later in the morning walking the breakwall.

    Thanks for sharing Fella. We loved visiting up there a few years ago.

    Well, It is done...

    I received a text from my lawyer around 5 pm that the funds had been wired and we have closed on our farm property.

    Strangely enough this all occured during a wedding ceremony. My cousin and his spouse of 42 years renewed their vows. A strange thing to do or so I thought that was described as a reason to hold a party. Turned out to be one of the most emotional experiences I have ever had in my life when two people rededicated themselves to each other, only to be excentuated by the grown children's description of their parents lives togther and the impact that had on their collective lives. The house was blubbering like idiots! all of this occuring in a small lake port town of Port Colbourne as the lake frieghters rolled by on a hot and steamy August afternoon. It was a real life vigniette of what Smart People should have been about.

    Good for you Sco! Time for a toast. We closed and got our money too! Glad to be out of the rental business. Enjoy your Alaska cruise. On our bucket list.

    That's great news to hear, scotee! WE can both raise a glass with our better halves.

    It feels a bit surreal since the day passed as i've been looking for things to fill my day, all the while needing to hang about home as we're having a bathroom renovation done, amongst other things, to correct a few deficencies with the property.

    I went up to the course this afternoon to work a tournament as a last minute replacement. I can't recall being at the course in the late afternoon when something wasn't going on and I have to say that maybe the best time of day to be there. It was so tranquil. If I was closer, I would consider playing after 4 pm as standard practice rather than fighting with the masses for a morning tee time.

    I really like late afternoon golf as well Sco. It's a great time to
    be out on the course and usually, as you said, less crowded.

    Yes, I got a little carried away. I won't post the waterfall pics. :)

    Awesome picture scotee, Canada was on our post retirement journey until I had my work accident, then all our cash went on paying bills after the treatment and my superannuation had to be used to pay off the house. Still peeved at missing out and it does not make it any better when you show those pics. Hope you had a fantastic time.

    So we spent a little over a week with friends doing this trip.
    On -, @scomac2002 I have to say you have some amazing country up there! Impossible to take a bad photo. Sad part, we drove by at least a dozen nice looking golf courses with no play. Our friends don't play. Glad to be home but these scenes will linger for a long time.

    Fantastic pics Scotee. And a marvelous trip. Part of North America that I always wanted to visit, the Canadian Rockies. One of these days. Hope you had some traveling music along:
