This is all such killer stuff! I know the Clubs people are going to be very happy. Looks like we'll do a "manual pilot" with no more than 10 clubs this fall to gather feedback. I imagine we should circle the wagons and start talking about what changes we need to get to with the club server admin tools.

Great stuff, Jeff!

Sure Cole. I have a club of my own I'd love to include in the pilot, and a couple other suggestibles.
