So Long and thanks for all the fish....

It's a quote from one of my favorite series of books "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." And it pretty much sums up my experiences here at GK.
During my tenure as your Community Director, or whatever name you wish to call me, I have seen my fair share of triumphs and fiascoes. I won't bore them with you but sum it up to say it's bittersweet that I walk off into the sunset. Just a little taste of what I have managed to accomplish during my tenure here:
GK Blog AND the popular Birthday Golf page
GK Casual Golf Outings
Expansion and consolidation of your Forums
Addition of your FAQ section and How would you play this hole Forum Sections.
Marketing propaganda for GK
... and the list goes on.
For the past seven years I have seen this site grow and flourish from a one-horse website to a golfing portal. All information from GK outings and community building I can honestly say I have had a part. Even some of the artwork in our marketing campaigns I have had a hand in designing and implementing. But there comes a time in everyone's life when a passion can overtake your personal life. Fortunately for me I realized soon on that one thing had to be let go and it is with a heavy heart that I pass this legacy onto more suitable hands.
Great if you can manage to get paid to follow your passion but alas not the case. Other responsibilities take precedence and that is the cost of growing up.
I wish you all good fortune in your endeavors. Paisano/Greg you will make a great Community Director.
