Welcome to the site Randy. As a fellow Randy, a hearty hello...
You have seen the first part of why joining this community is a journey, not a race. This is a place orf friendship and commraderie. It's a place to share, learn, and participate. As you can see already from the number of FJ Ambassadors who have responded, we are a welcoming team.
For your part, the key is to engage. Become part of the conversation. Take part in the surveys. Enter contests. And share your stories about golf.
If you do, I can promise you a lot of fun and learning.
Oh yeah. Then if you have done all that and more, one day you'll say, "Wow, I'm an Ambassador." And it will be because you have become part of the group without really even noticing the "how long does it take" part.
Jump in. I can say this is a great place to be.
