I have started renewing certificates for the many clubs who have already paid their dues and have supplied me with an up-to-date list of renewing owners. I certainly hope this process has been easier for the handicappers because it certainly has been for me.

I am finding that processing and printing the certificates as a batch has greatly reduced the amount of labour needed to handle renewals.

If I haven't already said so....Thank You.
I may actually be able to enjoy my first spring in almost 17years.
