Time flies when you're having fun, right?

It was something... fun, difficult, exhausting, frustrating, exciting, rewarding and a whole lot of other things along the way... but yeah fun is part of it!

It's been a fun and incredible ride following along with you another year. Congratulations on all the wonderful things that have happened in your personal life this year. Seeing you getting married and having a beautiful boy this past year has been amazing! I'm truly happy for you, you're a great person and deserve all the happiness you've had this past year. 

It's been a pleasure having you join the mod team and you've been a wonderful addition to the already phenomenal crew we already had. One enjoyed the interactions we've had through beta testing and in the fantasy leagues. Thank you for all the hard work you've put in behind the scenes to make this the best place to talk golf and life.

Here's to another good year for you!

Congratulations on the milestone Jamie!  Time does indeed fly by and I am here to tell you that when "older people" tell you it goes by even faster as your time here on planet earth rolls along, believe them 🙂.  As I stated in my very first MGS post, I found this site by accident (searching for info on irons) and it's been a whole lot of fun interacting with the forum members, learning tons, and getting to meet and play golf with some.

So here's a question... who is the longest standing member of the forum?

Another year makes it 6! 

I'm a little early as the actual date is in a few weeks, but with vacation coming an event where I get the pleasure of working 160+ hours in 9 days and the normal forum stuff this morning is just as good as any to drudge up this old thread again. 

This year has been a special one. Since the last time posting in this I've had the pleasure of joining the Mod team and at least in my eyes going a lot done over this time. We managed to rework and debug the new testing system, bring back the community map, had some fun with some new themes, select some 100 or testers and searching through countless others. It has been a lot of work, but a lot of fun taking on this new role and I look forward to continuing even if it is in a slightly different fashion from the last year or so. 

I was fortunate to make a second straight superbowl with the Fantasy Football league and come up short in 2nd ... grr ... and make another run at the Fantasy Golf playoffs. I also got to use my GT from golf on the Rapsodo which will be broken back out with the nice weather again!

However I think the last big highlight(s) of the last year has been getting to know a lot more of you much better over the year. Whether through testing, focus groups, fantasy leagues and much more it has been a very eventful year and I hope that we can enjoy much of the same this year!

Outside of MGS this was an extremely eventful year.
Got married to an incredible girl Allyssa who has not only been a great wife, but an amazing mother....
Oh yeah had my first child. Ivan, who has been a dream so far and just brings so much joy into our lives. 
Took part of my 10th World Curling Federation Event as an Ice Technician in a short 5 years (#11 coming up quickly)
Had a nice trip to Kazakhstan for one of those, great ppl, good food. 
Countless walks with the dogs and adventures
Had my parents visit from western Canada for their first time in Switzerland!
Runner up (i'm sensing a theme here) at the Club Championships at my home club (curling) in my first year playing since 2018. 
That and so much more which I'm sure that I've missed. 

Thank you all for making this such a great place and one that I thoroughly enjoy spending time in and working for all of you as a membership group. There really is no better other online community!

9 years for me this summer.  

The forum sure has changed in those 9 years.  

Some great people seemingly moved on; more great people have moved in; and the forum keeps rolling along.

I believe that is like a lot of us. Came for the testing, first X amount of posts all just signing up for tests and hoping to get picked then eventually finding something else on the forum that we liked till the point where we got hooked and now we are at where we are! 

Maybe I should start a new thread and having everyone repost their first real non application for testing post.
