Our second Women's Golf League Meeting will be held Wednesday, December 20th, 2023, at 9:00 am in Retzlaff Hall. Meeting will be held even if too cold to play or raining. Coffee and donuts will be available to enjoy during meeting.

 

Our last meeting was attended well, appreciated those who attended and participated in group discussion.  We follow an agenda as close as we can and hope to speed up each meeting.  We will need to follow-up regarding the Potato Bake, as well as the lunch for the Good Neighbor Day Golf Tournament event for our two money-making events.      Please plan to attend.   

 

We still need some of you to signup to be hostesses.  If you are a new player and wish to learn, we have several who would be willing to assist you.  

 

I personally want to thank each of you for your attendance, your participation in discussions, and most of all your attention during the meeting.    Each of you are an important reason we continue to have our Women's League.  

 

Reminder:  At each league play, the hostess will announce the teams, and tee number.  Please do not leave until each team member has been announced.  Remember to bring in the CTP's and score cards to the library to the hostesses once your team is done playing.

 

Look forward to our next meeting.

It has been brought to my attention, and clearly stated in the By-Laws, that the official start to the Men's Tuesday Golf League is November 1st. Therefore the hole-in-one I made on 10/31/23 was NOT eligible for the payout.

 

Because of this I have returned the payout and those who have submitted their $2 shall have the choice of getting it refunded or remain on the books as paid in advance for the next hole-in-one. Let me know which you prefer. I apologize for the inconvenience.

This is Randy Davis's decision, if open for play, we will then play right after our meeting and after each member is assigned a team/starting hole we then will go to our assigned tee box.  Please stay until we know all have been assigned a team/hole.

 

Meetings are important to attend and to have everyone's attention to go over the year's set dates, events, to answer any questions, reports to be given and to welcome our newest members as well as our established members.  Please plan to attend.  Let's make this a fun year let's all work together to make this happen.

 

A reminder fees are due of $25.00, if not paid please plan to pay your fee's, for those who have not paid.  Small bills are welcome, 1's if able.

 

While we are conducting meeting the hostesses' sheets will be passed around to sign up to host.  We need two per week for league play.

 

Look forward to seeing everyone!!!
