I'm back and after absence thought maybe I should re- introduce my self.
I have been absent for a bit and I think I owe you spies an explanation. And especially to the ones that know me and the ones I respect immensely here and enjoy their banter.
I work with CertainTeed in an insulation manufacturing plant. Our plant was very top heavy in the management area and with numerous restructuring ( ie layoffs). We went from 8 managers down to 3. Thus us three have had to assume the duties of the other 5. Thus the days were long and work ended up coming home with me as well. And with the brutal temps up here in the last few months ( with wind chill, temps hit -30 to - 45 C), golf was not on my mind. And my exercising even stopped.
Things have settled down now.
And I want to meet some people and I have a commitment to get the northwest get together going and a commitment to those members.
Now myself. I have been here for about .... I can't really recollect. I think about a year and a half. I joined because I wanted to gain some knowledge and also be part of a group of people that were also nuts about golf as I was. And as I got more involved here, it became addictive. And the quality of this site in terms of content and personnel as I found out with time are second to none.
I hail from Medicine Hat, Alberta. A small community in the southeast part of the province. Pop. About 65k.
I started golfing in 1998 and handicap hovers around 19.
Last year I had the privilege of being selected as a tester for the ping i500's that I need to continue on this year. I have the Shot scope now and am ready to start collecting data.
I just worry that I might not have time this summer. All the North American insulation plants are implementing SAP in July. I have also had to assume some of those duties in the sense of getting all the maintenance and MRO systems ready so they can be transferred over.
My golfspy name is Har in the Hat..thus becomes evident
Medicine Hat is referred to simply as " The Hat".
