Membership meeting, Club Room

Monthly Tournament. Thanks to Beth for hosting today’s Bingo Bango Bongo tournament. Big winners: Betsy / Diane S (1st), Allyn (2nd), Diane C (3rd) . Congratulations, winners! A reminder to hostesses that you will be reimbursed for snacks up to a maximum of $30.
Adopt A Hole. 9 holers will adopt a hole to help out the maintenance crew and keep things extra nice on the back nine. Take sand out when you play and tidy up “your” hole. Focus on picking up trash, filling divots, and fixing fresh ball marks. Hole assignments are by last name.
Hole 10: A, K
Hole 11: B, L
Hole 12: C, M
Hole 13: D, N
Hole 14: E, O, P
Hole 15: F, G, Q, R
Hole 16: G, S
Hole 17: H, I, T, U, V
Hole 18: J, W, X, Y, Z
Golf Clinics. Casey will offer 3 clinics, Thursdays at 5pm. Putting, sand, pitching & chipping (or possibly side lies – uphill/downhill.) Cost TBD. Dates: May 25, June 22, July 20
Team Play. We need markers for May 25 and players for multiple dates. (Note: no regular play that day, so all are encouraged to join Team Play, serve as a marker, or help host.) Check the Team Play webpage for the doodle link. Questions to ponder before the fall… Are we committed to doing this? Will we have enough players across enough flights to do on our own? It is hard to get players, especially for Flight 1 and 3. Coordination of PA Hills is challenging.
Guest Day. Next week is guest day. To play with or without a guest you must sign up. It is a shot gun start at 8:00. If you are a member of the golf course, your guest plays for free on guest day. If you’re not a member you pay for your guest. There are multi-play discount cards at the pro shop.
TOC. This is our annual “nine hole tournament.” It’s fun, it’s for everybody (with at least 20 scores posted by the start date) and there is no downside! You never know if you might become an accidental “champion” as happened in several cases last year. Someone wins in every flight and we especially need high handicappers. We need to establish 3 official Thursday play dates for the TOC. Please go to the TOC webpage to find the “doodle” for indicating your availability.
Social. We need a new venue for our summer party, which includes spouses/SO’s. If you have a home or club that could accommodate our group in the garden or poolside, please contact the Social Chairs. Diane CIESINSKI Ellen BARTON Joan WOLLENBERGER
