    So sad to hear about Manning PP.  The various western wildfires have been pretty devastating to many great places. We went there several times in late 80's early 90's, and hiked the Lightening, Strike, Flash and Thunder Lakes trail. We usually rented a canoe and spent a day along the shoreline of Lightening Lake.  Ever spent an entire day in a canoe with a perpetually sopping wet Golden Retriever?  Very memorable but not highly recommended 😆.

    Well, the more I play golf, the less of a contest (as to which I like better) it becomes 🤣. I can say without hesitation that I'm way more skilled with a fly rod than any club in my bag.

    I see it all around me. I'm not usually one to pat my own back, but I'm proud of how I coach these kids. I'm a super laidback person that loves kids. I can't grasp how anyone can treat kids the way they do as coaches. I'm as competitive as they come but I started coaching my nephew at 3 years old and he just turned 9. I've coached baseball, basketball, and football. Every year the draft sheet is full of requests to be with me or one other guy because we emphasize fun, improving, and the important things.  We turn out to be pretty dang good too because there's no pressure to perform. It's unreal how much pressure some of these younger kids get put on them from coaches and parents. I also coach a travel baseball team over the summer and it's even worse then. I grew up watching my dad coach me and my sister in sports and to this day grown adults that he coached will come running over to shake his hand or hug him because of the impact he made and that's exactly how I want to be.

    Man we finally got above 20 here in Penticton, was actually able to have coffee out on the deck this morning after a little chi-gong. Robin's in the yard, chickadees in the trees, and I can't see my breath anymore! Now that it's 10:45, I'm afraid I'm gonna sweat at the range later hahahaj

    Yes, one million times over YES. I coached high school basketball here in Reedsburg for 5 years when we moved here as the varsity assistant and my number one priority was always relationship building first and foremost. When the kids like you, you make it fun and you show them you care by getting to know them, you are way more successful than if you’re just hard nosed and cruel. You laugh with them, sweat with them, cry with them, all the emotions. You could be the smartest guy in the room but they won’t give two craps if you treat them poorly. I often found with my high school guys, I was able to be critical and self admittedly harsh when needed, but it was always taken in a way by the players that they knew it was what they needed. That was uncommon for me as well. I’ve got kids still to this day that I’ll make plans with every summer now that they are in college to golf, get lunch, be a job reference, etc. I love coaching and can’t wait to get back into it when my kids get into organized sports.

    Good morning everyone. What can be better than waking up to this and being surrounded by golf courses.
