News Update

Your GWGA Board  had 2 meetings over the winter months.  Here are a few items for 2017 you need to know.

Survey about start times for June, July and August.  34 members completed the survey.  The board reviewed the results and the majority voted for a summertime 7:30 tee time start.  Results were as follows:

  • 20 golfers voted for summer (Jun July Aug) tee times to start at 7:30 a.m.
  • 10 golfers voted for summer (Jun July Aug) tee times to start at 7:00 a.m.
  • 4 golfers voted for summer (Jun July Aug) tee times to start at 8:00 a.m.

2017 Calendar has been set and is posted for your information.  It will be reviewed at the Spring Meeting.

Volunteers – A list of volunteer opportunities will be circulated at the Spring meeting again this year.  Please think about what you want to sign up to help with.  Every member is asked to participate in at least one thing, over and above playing golf;  your help is key to our achieving the many activities we have planned.

Your stories! – Some of you have not provided “your story” for inclusion in the membership directory.  Please send this to Sally, our webmaster, within the next couple of weeks. You can find her email here. Tell us something about yourself that we don’t already know!!  These are fun to read and helpful in getting to know each other better.  Perfect English is not required!!!

Three Important Reminders

Survey Deadline – tomorrow is the deadline to vote for your preferred 2017 summer start time.  Please print out a survey and bring it to the luncheon. There will be a dropbox on the registration table.  To help clarify was was sent previously,  tee times are every nine minutes and our block of times goes for about an hour and 20 minutes.  So for example, if our times start at 7 a.m., the times will end around 8:20 a.m., and so forth.   Please click the link and print out your survey and bring it tomorrow.   If you are not coming to the luncheon, please email or mail your response to Sally.   https://gwgl.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/survey-for-2017-website2.pdf

2017 Renewal for membership  – deadline is also tomorrow. Please bring your check to the luncheon.  Remember that your GHIN memberships expire in December.  Early payment keeps your GHIN in tact so you will not have issues and delays at the beginning of the 2017 season.   It is also helpful to the Board in planning next season if we know how many members we can expect.

New memberships – If you know someone new who may want to join us next season, remember that they must contact us first, before sending in any money, so our Membership Chair can personally talk with them and ensure they understand the expectations of members, and what our league can and cannot offer them.  You may forward the link below to any prospective new members:  https://gwgl.wordpress.com/how-to-join-2/
