Hello Members,

With just a few tournaments under our belts, its fair to say that Mother Nature has not been our biggest supporter. However, we're hopeful for pleasant temps and plenty of sunshine in the coming weeks.

It has been requested that all players check in at least 1/2 hour prior to tee time. Please keep in mind that the tournament coordinator and her team have been sitting at the registration table for well over an hour before the late arrivals check in. They need time for last minute preparation also. Lets show them a little respect.

So here's to good health, good weather and good golf!!! And...happy Fathers' Day to all our Dads.

See you on the links,

Georgia

Hello Members,

Its hard to believe we're already half way through 2024. The older you get, the faster it goes, so they say.

Sue Sogard's Birdie/Skins pool seems to have caught on quite well. Her committee is reviewing and will continue to evaluate the process to insure fair and equitable results for all participants. If you participate, please be mindful of time spent on the greens lining up that all important birdie putt. We must still maintain proper speed of play at all events.

Check out the new "Pair Me" feature on the GVWGA website. Its a new idea being introduced to allow singles to find a partner or complete a foursome for upcoming events.

Not difficult. Even I can do it. Thanks to Michelle Miller for the idea and Liz Prescod and Cathy Smith for making it happen.

So, we step into the second half of the year with a big bang. Happy 4th of July, everyone.

God bless America!

May 2024

Hello Members,

Attended by 100 members, we kicked off the 2024 season with the Spring Banquet last week at Eagle Vale Golf Club. Many thanks, again, to Amy Hay, Cheryl Kauffman and their crew for organizing the event. And...with 3 tournaments in the works, we'll soon meet on the links, hopefully in sunshine.

The new election procedure was reviewed and a couple questions were raised. For those unable to attend the banquet, the answers to those questions follow. First, there is no option to vote electronically at this time. Second, the ballot, inside a signed envelope, must be postmarked by the deadline date (to be provided) and mailed to Michele Miller, Nominating Chair. If you choose to save the cost of postage, you may hand the ballot in a signed envelope to Michele on or prior to the deadline date. Ballots received late or not inside a signed envelope will not be counted. Please review Article IV of the GVWGA Constitution for complete details on the new procedure. For further clarification, the minutes of the banquet will be posted on the website in the near future.

In addition, a new program, the Birdie Pool, was introduced by Sue Sogard. Details of this program can also be found in the banquet minutes. Please note: the tournament chair of each event WILL NOT administer the program. All questions should be directed to Sue. If you're up for betting on your own game, this could be a fun thing to participate in - totally optional and separate from prize money.

So, fingers crossed for a healthy season for all, see you soon.

Georgia
