In full swing now to start lining up donations and prizes for our music association's golf event in May. Of course I was "elected" to reach out to golf companies to see about prizes & possible donations. Every single one so far has been like "oh yeah great cause but we're not going to help you". I get it, they get inundated with requests, but don't have pages on your sites about wanting to help charitable organizations but then turn around and say "oh well we only want to help very specific organizations". 

We may end up having to go out and purchase things to use as prizes, but that's going to really cut into what we're looking to make for our scholarship fund. Just as reference, here's what our normal fundraising totals have been the past few years from our usual "big" events:

2018/2019 - $73,862
2019/2020 - $50,426
2020/2021 - $0

Hence having a golf tournament for the first time in like, 8 years since our last one to try and get funds for our senior scholarships. All of our big things like working Gillette Stadium, performing in parades, and having concerts have all been cancelled. It's a bummer.

Does anyone know if DSG has the equipment to remove adapters from shafts? Trying not to make a 90 minute drive to GG just for this 🤔

If they can pull a shaft, they should be able to pull an adapter. At least from an equipment perspective there isn’t a difference that I know of. The bigger question is whether the guy doing the work knows what he is doing.

Yeah I didn’t know if they had the shaft extractors or not. But yeah I agree with you, maybe they’ll just let me do it if so [emoji23][emoji23]

Phone call to the store is the best option, But I think they advertise they can pull shafts. Doesn’t mean they have the equipment in-house and can do immediate turnaround.

Update.. went to DSG to get the adapter removed, the guy working in the golf area didn’t know how to do it and told me to come back Monday. I saw the machine there and just did it myself and taught him in the process.

And he still charged me emoji23.png

After seeing it posted somewhere I made a spring / U Clamp setup for adapter removal.  Cost was about $10 and it works very well.  I will see if I have a picture of it because trying to describe it would confuse me let alone somebody trying to read it!  😄  My version works using the adapter screw to pull against so it would have to be modified some way to work with pulling shafts from clubheads. 

edit....found the pic i took of the one posted somewhere....I didn't use the turnbuckle between the spring and screw link.  I use a washer under the bolt on top and a washer / wingnut on the bottom side of the eye bolt to anchor it to the bench then remove it to put away.

Classic 😂 my wife watched about 10 minutes when I had it on yesterday morning  (she never watches and busts MJ balls when I do) and she was gasping at every missed putt. I told her I’m going to have to start putting it on Saturday mornings and she’ll get into it

You are a brilliant, brilliant man @Chip Strokes. Those are some subtle moves expertly executed.
