I saw that 40+ people have a 0.1% higher mortality rate than 30+ people and been hiding inside ever since. They would not get me out of my doors. Going straight to the frontline with what i assume must be 60+ years is so selfless.

I have the pleasure of knowing ru4por personally, and can tell you he's a straight up solid guy and I've never known him to not do what he can to help a situation.

You'll never meet a guy who's more fun to play a round with. He knows how to tell a story and always makes me laugh.

PDGA email just arrived asking that everyone stop playing.

I guess that's what they mean. But, they could have been clearer.

While we know you want to be out playing right now, we need your help to set a good example for communities everywhere. That is why we are asking disc golfers to skip the course and stay home. It is something we all have the power to do in this crisis, and while it may seem like a tall task, we are confident it is the best choice to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. This goes for the young and healthy, as well as those considered more vulnerable. We are all in this together.
After a paragraph talking about how painful it was to cancel PDGA sanctioned events, etc.

This paragraph could perhaps be understood as reflecting on the canceling of sanctioned events, rather than a *new* call to not play even casual rounds. Without much explanation apart from "help to set a good example for communities everywhere".

With Indiana announcing its version of "lock down" today, I'll have to consider whether or not to play my local course. 2-3 miles up the road. Nearest park where you'd go for a hike. I played my first local round in years about a week ago, with my family, as a measure of social distancing. Had a great time. Only saw a few people the whole time, three conservations, none within six feet.

We'll all have to decide what's "reasonable" for the sort of outdoor exercise that most "lock down" orders seem to allow, I guess.

Itís not a good email at all (I teach writing such emails) and the most important idea is buried deep in a paragraph. That sentence is clear to me, if also deeply buried.

I'd do it myself, but that'd be a waste of a perfectly good Oberon. :|

Lol....I had to go out grocery shopping for us, my Mom and my Father in Law, this afternoon. Lo and behold, I did fall right into the hoarding mentality. I got freaked out and bought three cases of Oberon in cans.....hell, you just know. Ok, I admit it....I panic bought beer. :o

Sadly, the message is just preaching to the choir. So...all the responsible golfers, practicing social distancing will stay home. All the knuckleheads sitting 7 at a picnic table sharing smoke will still be out there. I guess I don't really have an answer to make people do the right thing. :wall:

I'm not wishing ill (or worse) on anyone, but...

... could be some examples of Darwinism in action.

how much testing has your county done?

Not sure but I would guess not too much. We only have 2 active cases right now. And I believe they just got back from overseas.
