      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Off for the next 5 days to play some golf down in AZ. Can't say that I'll miss the arctic weather.

64 days for me until I hit Jacksonville......Make sure if you hit a house, hit the spanish tile roofs, they sound awesome when a golf ball hits it

I'm jealous. What courses you playing?

The Tucson National @ the Omni Resort, and their Catalina course for sure. Monday and Tuesday we are going to wait on reserving tee times for. Chances are, we will head back towards Phoenix and play a few courses.

Anybody have any course recommendations for the Phoenix area?

I just got back from AZ/NV yesterday. Played ASU Karsten and Trilogy at Vistancia in PHX and played one round at Wolf Creek in Mesquite, NV. All you can say about Wolf Creek is: INCREDIBLE!!!! We were told it would likely be a 5 hour round and it was 5.25 hrs. You hardley see other players besides the group in front of you because of the way it's layed out.

We almost made the drive up to play Wolf Creek on Friday, but the weather was pretty lousy. We got rained out in Tucson, and looked for a place to play. Unfortunately by the time we knew our chances at playing were shot, it was too late in the day to get another tee time at a different course.

We ended up just playing two rounds due to the weather, but they were pretty amazing. If anyone ever has the chance to play Tucson National @ the Omni Resort, do it!

A few different holes

That last picture was of a hole that went up an elevation that was just astounding. Its hard to tell from the picture, but it is about as straight up as you could possibly get it. And it's long, at around 580 yds. I also managed to hit one of the beautiful houses on a nice sliced tee shot. Of course, I pretended nothing happened and kept moving. whistle

Thurs (1/24) was pretty cloudy in Mesquite with rain to the North but it didn't affect playing golf. Fri (1/25) was an all day drizzle and we drove to Zion Natl. Park. Sat (1/26) was a light rain that killed my round at Conestoga and grounded a hot air baloon festival. It takes 5 hours to play Wolf Creek and if you can't start before noon you may not finish all 18 before dark. Last year we watched the opening round of the Accenture Match Play in Tucson and had a great time there. I'd like to do that again before the Donald (Trump) pushes hard enough to move it to FL.

Any guesses on the high score? I'm going to say 285 will win it.

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
