Happy New Year fellow golfers!
The new FLWGA season is upon us and a lot is happening.
The new 2020 board meet this week and we have some exciting
1) Our FLWGA website is being refreshed! This is a work in progress, but what is out there already is great! If you have any ideals or issues, please contact Joanne Normandin.
2) Our membership fees for renewals after January 1st will be reduced to be the same as new members! Ongoing, renewals and new members will be $50, social membership remains at $40, and hole in one club remains at $5. For the handful of our members that signed up after January 1st and paid $55 - you will be receiving a refund from the FLWGA. If you don't receive that within a couple weeks, please contact Judy Merritt. Amendment
3) Rosemary Calderon will be looking at the possibility of getting new FLWGA golf shirts this year. She'll be looking for both short sleeve and sleeveless. Stay tuned for more information in the coming months.
4) We are reviewing our current software to insure that it will have the WHS (World Handicapping System) implemented this spring and that the software fully meets our needs. We hope to have some final decisions in the next month or so. One thing we are looking at is possibly offering an optional GHIN account for a fee - if you would be interested in this, please let me know.
Mark your calendar for the 2020 Kick Off Party on Wednesday, February 19th! Betty Detrich and her committee are planning a fun get together - you won't want to miss it.
There will be 8 official tournaments this year - Opening Day, Member / Member, Wildflower Cup, Summer Scramble, Match Play, 9 Hole Tournament, Halloween Tournament, and Closing Day.
Rosemary Calderon has been working hard to find volunteers to chair these tournaments! If you are wanting to volunteer, there are still 2 positions available - the Closing Day tournament and the 9 hole Exchange coordinator. Contact Rosemary if you are interested in either of these positions. If you want to help out, but don't want to be in charge - all of our tournaments and social events will need helpers! Please contact Rosemary Calderon or Judy Geary if you would like to assist with an event this year.
The official play day calendar will be finalized in the next week and will be posted out on the FLWGA website.
Finally - I want to insure that all of you are informed, however I don't want to fill up your inboxes each month. I will send out periodic Presidents Message, but most likely will not be monthly. If you want to know what is going on - feel free to join us on the first Tuesday of each month for our board meetings (9am, Westside Village Center Room 1) - everyone is always welcome. Or you can review the meeting minutes of the board meetings on our website - they will be posted within a week or two after the meeting. Or feel free to reach out to myself or any other board member for any questions or concerns you may have.
I'm looking forward to a fun year working with and for all of you.
See you soon at the Kick off party or on the golf course!
2020 FLWGA President
