I Am Ready To Spend My Points!!!

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149

Thank you to Anna Banana Kruchten, KathyStreib, and Carol Williams for this months fun contest which gives us the opportunity to spend our ActiveRain POINTS!!!  I have plenty of points, and could easily afford to choose to purchase all of the amazing choices being offered in this months challenge, but in fairness all members who do not have the abundance of points I do, I will only choose one.

As a previous golfer who after 50 years, yes you heard that correct, 50 years, I have once again recently taken up golfing again.  So Carol Williams golf package for a mere 20,000 ActiveRain points (this is a steel for this amount of points) which includes a:

"Weekend for 4!  Friday Happy Hour at the Tap room, dinner to follow! Saturday morning enjoy a 3 hour golf lesson plus lunch. The afternoon is free to shop or 'spa' with a $1500 resort  certificate! Saturday Happy Hour will be at the Terrace Lounge with a chef prepared dinner El fresco!

Sunday we'll play a round of golf!  Afterwards, take advantage of relaxing by the pool or spa.  For those who weren't happy with their golf game perhaps going back to the Tap Room for an attitude adjustment would be fun!  Dinner to follow at another incredible restaurant onsite." 

Obviously included in my group of four will be myself and Carol, but I am leaving the other two spots open to the first two members who request joining me and Carol for this amazing golfing experience.  My newly purchased Ping golf clubs shown above, are ready to board the Banana Jet, and be tested on the fantastic golf course Carol has chosen for us to play.  Between now and this once in a life time golfing opportunity, I will be hitting my local golf range, and practicing everyday.  All that is needed now is to fill the two open spots, and for Carol to schedule the date!!!

There are quite a few avid golfers in the Rain that I am sure would be interested in joining you.  Just being able to hang out with Carol Williams is worth the point expenditure.

Good morning, George... much as I'd love to see you and Carol, I can't offer to be part of your foursome... golf is simply not my game! But maybe Ed Silva would like to join you.

Don't golf much anymore George.  Just too darn time consuming overall.  I did enjoy the courses and a few brewskies with buddies when I did play a round though.  m
