New Business Cheri asked for comments on the Girls Just Want To Have Fun Tournament.  Possible ideas are not to have a meal after golf, just a social hour after or changing the date from winter to possibly late March or early April.  Some of the members who did attend the event were happy with the way it is

A big thank you to Bonnie Vanni and Julie Mocek for volunteering to take over the responsibilities as Hospitality Chair.  Their first event to organize is going to be a pot luck at the Pickle Ball Pavilion.

Tournament Committee  Jan Topolski announced effective February 6, 2020, the maximum to be taken on any given hole is 11 (Yes, you still need to add an x if you go over 11). This is due to the increase in maximum indexes from USGA from 45 to 54, and that we raised our maximum course handicap from 25 to 29.  Course handicaps will be updated weekly on Mondays before the pairings are completed

The Tournament Committee has added more opportunities to play with friends.  They did not increase the team play but added about 6 dates throughout the year that you can pick who you play with

If you are interested in seeing what and how the Tournament Committee works, come and see a brief demonstration in the Computer Room at the Arts/Technology Building, Tuesday, February 11 at 9 am.  Contact Jan if you would l like to attend
