MGA Associate Member Days

Posted Friday, March 31st, 2006 11:12 am GMT -6 in Golf at 11:12 AM

The Minnesota Golf Association is expanding on a popular program introduced last year. Last fall I played in the inaugural MGA Associate Members Day at Rochester Golf and Country Club. The format was great–you played your own ball and there was no handicap limit. You must be an MGA member with a GHIN number to play, but you can easily join a club without real estate if you don’t belong to a traditional club.

This year, they are expanding the program to four courses around the state: St. Cloud Country Club (June 26), Hillcrest Golf Club of St. Paul (July 31), Northland Country Club in Duluth (August 21) and Rochester Golf & Country Club (September 25). Costs for individuals range from $60-$80, depending on the course. This is a great way for people to play nice courses they may not otherwise have access to play…DK

Site Launch

Posted Thursday, March 30th, 2006 12:14 pm GMT -6 in Housekeeping at 12:14 PM

Welcome to 7 Minute Miles!

Today is the official site launch of 7 Minute Miles–my personal site for sharing news with family and friends, improving my writing skills (hopefully), testing new web technologies and discussing various topics I find interesting. Sort of like a virtual Speaker’s Corner, but hopefully not as crazy…

I’m using a wide array of technologies here, with an effort to become as standards compliant as I can so that the experience is the same across platforms. Windows visitors–give the Firefox web browser a try if you can. It is more secure and conforms to web standards better than Internet Explorer. Click on the Firefox button in the sidebar to learn more.

This site is the most I’ve ever published about myself, so please browse around and let me know what you think. Some areas will be private and password protected and some things are better left unsaid. Click on the register link in the sidebar to get a subscriber account that allows you to post comments, if you desire…DK
