Volunteerism isn't about recognition or paybacks or free stuff. It's about doing what you love so others can do it too. Not about personal gain.
Any of us who volunteer are important to the sport, and set a good example for others to follow, when they want to contribute their time and money, but pulling one or two out of the ranks for more than an honorable mention amounts to favoritism.
I'm not Troy asking to be recognized here. I haven't even told him I was putting this up. I appreciate the above and beyond stuff that everybody that has contributed to our golfing experience here in Spokane has been apart of. Gordy and Bob are front and center in the club and in the community and most golfers know and appreciate what they have done and what they are doing for the club. When the time comes I'm sure there will be a tee sign with their names on it.
With that being said all of Gordy's large donations like baskets for the club and teepads were all to my knowledge repaid by the club. The time that Bob and Gordy have given has been enormous. They are recognized for that. Troy isn't in my opinion and he kept the course in the ground when we could have lost the whole thing.. Remember that land grab course you designed? What do you would have happened if we were absent to that land for a year?
