This is long over due. Last year I had an accident not long after meeting some of you excellent people at Maxamania. It was a great afternoon that I was bragging about to my friends for weeks afterwards. I was lucky enough to have Craig reach out and help my friends to spread the word in this community. Thank you Craig.
This is one of those weird moments. I have a hard time talking about myself, and an even harder time recognizing where I am at today versus a year ago, but man is it a difference. I went from barely being able to use my hands to now fully upright in a manual chair with full functionality in my fingers. I had the best care in Chicago and have recently moved back to Detroit to be around my extended family again. I have been speaking with and meeting people that are actually “GROWING THE GAME” ™ with their work. I will golf poorly again.
I’m rambling. The point is to say thank you to all that donated last year and to say that even though I wont be the player I never was, I still can’t wait to pretend I was better on this board with out the usage of my body from my chest down.
I only drop in here on rare occasion Kevin but captured a little bit of magic from you in your post. Sounds like you are on a helluva journey and while I don’t know you personally, I think “I will golf poorly again” is brilliant and universal and caught me in a moment. I love it.
Kevin, It was great playing with you at Max. I know we’ve texted a few times, but I’m glad to hear you’re working your way back to the game.
For those that weren’t at Max I or remember, Kevin signed up for the Refuge a day prior to the event, not knowing anyone. Rolls up to Rackham with a cooler full of community beer for the event. Straight class act!
