All told: A little sunshine, beautiful scenery, highly accessible athletes, and a friendly, peaceful crowd made for a perfect day. Never needed the inhaler at all; no sunburn and no accidents, if you know what I mean. All perfectly paced out, with no overcrowding or rowdiness. Loved every minute.
I'm convinced that golfing could be a perfect pasttime for MSers. There are even accomodations for disabilities, complete with special golfcarts that allow sitting while putting. We will investigate these possibilities eventually. In the meantime, golf is slowly entering my psyche, gradually becoming an enthusiasm, totally accessible.
And the Elmira/Corning New York area is an excellent place to start.
