Well I done it. Not without a technical hitch right enough. The Tom Jones video can't play. Don't know if that is a good or a bad thing. Lol. I also should have had a pic of the desperado beer but for some reason Photobucket wouldn't allow me to upload it. Anyway hope you all enjoy it. Let's get posting the quiz answers, the poll and the name of an artist you'd like to hear in future and thanks again Paul for all your tips. I'm off to bed now
ps. My answer to the poll is maybes ay

It looks good, Martin
It's a good consolidation of the weekly results in the Valley. By publishing weekly accomplishments, it'll give us, the members, a better awareness of the actitivies in the club. It doesn't mean one can ignore the Leaderboard, however.
I'm replying to your remark, so my answers may be out of order.
1. No, you can't. This rule is being changed in the revised and updated rule book slated to be official January, 2018.
2. Horton Smith He won the inaugural tournament in 1934. He also won in 1936. Gene Sarazen won in 1935.
3. Corey Pavin
What else? Oh yeah, a performer. Someone you know well: Van Morrison.
Thanks, Martin, it was fun.
On the 1st tee, Textor

Outstanding job! Much appreciated and I saw myself about 4 times in the stereotype vid, LOL. As far Chambers Bay, I find it enjoyable. It's long, difficult, the greens are treacherous and in the wind impossible to score well. But every once in a while magic happens. No 17 for example, I've scored from 1 to 7 there.
Looking forward to future issues.
Have fun, hit 'em straight and don't miss too much playing time writing,
PS: One nit pick, with my funky eyes reading ALL CAPS is difficult for me.

Bingo Martin . You nailed it . Nice job .
I knew you must have started it when I saw the tournament " TWTW1 . MGROZAS SLAM DUNK AT ST ANDYS " .
So I came looking for it .
It had not showed up in my email . And won't until I post here . Which I have now . Believe me I could have gone for days without seeing .
This was WGT challenge that SChoitz initiated
. Martin am I right to assume that these can be any MEMBER V MEMBER match ? whether it be a multi player round or one of the 5 In C C challenges ?
Yes C C for me has a number of interesting challenges that I enjoy trying at .
I have given it a 3 month Sticky . Which should put it in the middle of page 1 .

Very well done, Martin!!
Did you quit your day job to have the time to put all this together??
You have slain the bear quite nicely,,,, (and, as someone else mentioned,,the ONLY criticalism is the CAPS!!)
The quiz:: No idea, no idea and no idea. (Not my cup 'o tea,,)
The Chamber's challenge,,,, Very unforgiving,,but the good rounds make up for the WGT "flyers" that show up and ruin your round. So, I'm an AYE
Artists: My audio cards always fail within two weeks of getting a new PC, so, I'll abstain,,
Stay blessed!! Nan,, Da Queen,,, LOL

This was way cool! Very nicely done and just the "Happy" positive shot in the arm this CC needed. Gotta love the enthusiasm!
Cheers Brother, but I'd much prefer a French made Kronenborg Blanc!

Excellent job Martin

Well done, nice addition to the forum.
Tue, Mar 7 2017 4:57 PM
Thanks for all the comments folks. Glad it turned out ok apart from the video. Didn't know how it would look as I was doing it. John and Nan, I'll do a way with the uppercase letters in future just for the fact that Nan answered the poll AYE. Will have you speaking the Scottish lingo soon Nan. Lol.
Textor, your request has been noted. Good choice.
Paul, I don't know what these 5 in CC challenges are. Basically I'm looking at the news feed for info and that one that said you defeated Scholtz came up. I take it that's not a head to head at the same time then?. I think I would still put stuff like that in but preferably in will be match ups like alternate shots or just 1 v 1. I would also put in ie. If you played with someone else from another club v say Turd and another member from another club. Just any match that involves interaction between members basically. Hope that clears it up.

Nicely done Martin , excellent job.

John and Nan, I'll do a way with the uppercase letters in future
Martin . They are not real moderators . They are imposters . Posing as moderators . In fact there are no moderators in our CC forum . Up till this point . The idea behind this is so that you , myself , Jim . Turd , azdewars , etc , etc can post in anyway they damn well please . Until now there wasn't anything anyone could say about it .
Until now . Lol .
