Newsletter 2020-10: Men's Golf League -
Despite the untimely passing of Steve Phillips on May 2nd, the Men's Golf League is active with the following restrictions:
Masks are to be worn inside all SEPO buildings that are open
Only one person per riding golf cart
Social distancing while on the course
Open to residents only – no visiting relatives or other guests
On a personal note, I am in dire need of an understudy when people return. Someone who is willing to take charge on April 1, 2021, because I already have five years of service as the understudy or President and am not going for six. Please contact me if you are interested in supporting your community’s Men’s Golf League.

There are only four people signed up for the proposed re-start of this activity October 3rd. Therefore, it is cancelled until further notice. The $1 prize fee will be returned to those who have paid.
We are disappointed that the interest in the scrambles appears to have diminished. These attracted as many as 90 participants in the past, and provided friendly competition and the opportunity to become acquainted with other residents.
We will consider starting this again, if there is sufficient interest expressed, or more residents have returned to our community.
If someone else wants to attempt a re-start, please contact us for materials.

We are proposing to re-start this activity Saturday, October 3rd, if there is sufficient interest. A minimum of eight players must be signed up by Friday noon, October 2nd.
Changes to the old procedures are as follows:
The sign-up sheet and $1.00 prize fee deposit box will be in the Pavilion starting Sunday afternoon, September 27th.
Score cards can be picked up in the Pavilion Saturday before play.
Prize distribution will be in the Pavilion after play.
Since Retzlaff Hall is closed, bring your own drinks, if desired.
SEPO rules regarding use of carts, masks, etc. apply.
