Hello FLWGA Members!
The crazy pandemic year of 2020 continues - but at least we all have golf!
Our Wednesday and Saturday play days continue. Starting in September on Wednesdays, the 9 hole and 18 hole players will be going out at the same time on opposite tees as we have in the past. Our participation has been higher than in past years and I hope that continues! Glad to see everyone out playing some golf.
On Wednesday, October 7th, the golf course has an outside event scheduled so Rosemary Calderon is planning another travelling play day - this time to the Trails of Frisco. The playday will have both a 9 hole and 18 hole option - watch for details coming soon!
18 Hole Exchange at Watters Creek Golf Course, Tuesday, October 6th - has been cancelled.
Halloween Tournament, Wednesday, October 21st - has been cancelled.
Closing Day Scramble, Wednesday, November 4th - has been cancelled.
In a normal year, the FLWGA is very busy - with at least 3 social events, 7 tournaments, plus 2 play days a week!
Did you know that if we had one unique volunteer for each position needed to plan and coordinate these events, plus run the normal operations of the association, I estimate it would take about 88 people to run the organization! We currently have 142 active members, so that is 62% of our members!
Even this year - with our multiple cancellations, we've still had about 20 positions that required volunteers to keep the organization running.
The Board of Directors is where it all begins! The Nominating Committee for our 2021 board has been formed and they have begun the job of finding a slate of officers for our 2021 board. I have personally enjoyed my time on the board this year and many people who have served on the board over the years have found it to be very rewarding! Wonder what a position entails? You can find Job Descriptions on our website (here).
If you are interested in being on the board next year, please reach out to one of the 5 committee members.
Volunteers are the heart and soul of the FLWGA.
Our Member Portal upgrade is scheduled for Tuesday, September 8th. We hope the site will not be down for more than a few days, but while it is down you can contact your playday coordinator for playday activities and hold those scorecards for entering when the site is back up. We will send an email, along with a detailed user manual, when the Member Portal is back up and ready for use.
As always, our Meeting Minutes and Financials are available on our FLWGA website (here).
The next FLWGA Board meeting is Tuesday, October 6th, 9am - via ZOOM conference. Everyone is always welcome to attend. If you plan to attend, please notify me and I'll send you the ZOOM information.
If you have any questions or suggestions, drop us a line at email@example.com or contact me.
Take care and stay safe!
2020 FLWGA President
