short post to advise I have dissolved the guild.
When the guild was created we had around 18-20 ARSE's that were playing SO at least once per week. We created the guild and had only 10 sign up and our last tournament yielded only 6 score cards.
To put that into some kind of perspective, since the guild was started we accumulated 80,000 guild exp points. We held tournaments, had friendly rounds etc. To level up the guild to the next stage, we needed 2.1 million exp points. So we were approx 2% towards levelling up.
I have since found out that a guild really needs to have levelled up once or twice at least to get the benefit of guild functions and to do that you need to have some high level guild members (over lvl 50 at least) A starting guild can have 20 members (which we had in theory) but with only 1 or 2 of us over lvl 30, we were always going to struggle.
So I will move on and hopefully join an established guild at some stage. Hope to still get some golf in with those ARSE's who still play.
