Welcome to the club! Hope you enjoy your stay here.
My pointer for you this evening ....
1) Read up the basics
2) Join outings
3) Ask questions when you are out at the outings with the senior members
4) Post your pics and request for help on how to improve
5) Do all of the above, and more.
6) Go buy a round of breakfast for the senior members.
Pick the right answer, and I'll already have given you your pointer.
