Would be great if we could get several 4somes. I would love to play. I'm not a great golfer, shoot about 90 from middle tees. I'm in if some others want to play!

Good morning. The sooner, the better. Once we reach full capacity (the idea is to have a comfortable reunion, not to bring 'as many as possible') only confirmed deposits will have a seat. (Last year, we had a sold out event in a few weeks).

We opened a PayPal account under e-mail info@aboutlife.club just follow their instructions (I believe this has to be sent as personal payment, please read post #67 in this thread, some have sent as payment for goods and services, which incurs in fees and also PayPal sent me that 'warning').

Hope to see you there!

The way I read it PayPal thinks you're running a business and trying to avoid paying them their due. I have gotten this warning in the past, and I have heard of accounts being closed because of it.

Sent as goods,the deposit will net about $145.

I'd tread lightly
