Please tell me you ordered more than 1 of those because that is frickin awesome . . . .I am gunning as hard as I can to get there. I definitely will not use the wood one on the course in fact it owuld be illegal in a PDGA even because it is too big! Would it be rude to ask you to sign the back of the wood one???

Glad you guys like it! To answer the questions that came up, the wood is maple. I had a choice of a few but thought it would look best on that. It's not hollowed out underneath so it's a solid piece and weighs about 1 pound.

I wouldn't mind signing the back if you wanted me to. I probably should have asked Valkyrie Kid if he wanted me to sign the back, I just assumed he might not want it signed.

Also, I'll order these on an as needed basis as they are really quite expensive and take around 2 weeks to come in. I went a little crazy on it since I know diamond is very tough to achieve so I wouldn't have to be handing these things out like candy

Maybe you will be handing them out like candy after people see the benefit. I think it is a great thing for the game and this site to offer such a cool reward. It helps build the site and it helps build the knowledge that can be garnered from the reviews. I only hope people continue to improve their reviews. Mine have certainly taken a step up in recent weeks with my long roadtrip. Some maybe consider me wordy but I am only putting in there things that I think are generally worth mentioning. I don't think there is a lot of fluff but sometimes I may talk in circles as I have been known to do!!!! All in all I just hope people step their games up, but more importantly I hope more people use the review section to review and not just read.

Maybe if you offered premium memberships as one of the stages of TR that would get more people to write better reviews. I don't think it is easy to cheat the system, because even though I have now reviewd 160 course I still have only 5 votes per review. That would take a lot of courses to reach gold or diamond level, or a ton of votes like if someone only reviewed Flip, Idlewild, Highbridge, or the often discussed Winter Park! Maybe people need more incentive, not that it needs to come out of your pocket Timg, but maybe there is some sponsorship (perhaps you could contact the private pay to play courses and see if they want to begin advertising here). Sure they can rely on their reviews, but a couple hundred $ from them could go a long ways for this site. Maybe this should be in suggestions and not here, but it was on my mind as I typed. See what I said about talking in circles I did it again!

Maple was a fantastic choice. The light color really brings out the lettering. As always you do things right! Thanks for everything you do to make this site a reality.
