With all the bad news we read...there's still some good news.

Way to go Jack! This facility is parked right next to Joint Base Lewis McChord.

Very cool. That paragolfer thing is pretty clever too.

Theres some serious engineering behind that. Jack is a class act all the way too.

Jack is a class act...and I am delighted people with disabilities (like the kind wounded vets deal with) are able to participate in my favorite activity.

Fact is, we have quite a few disable people who play at the five courses where I work...and we have special riding carts for them to use. (Not as sophisticated as the one shown in the picture...but of a sort where a handicapped person can swivel the seat and hit from a sitting position.)

I used to modify clubs for disabled golfers, but grew into boat building as a hobby. A good friend of mine who is into club making does it now.
