Dear WWGA Members,
Greetings and Happy New Year! The WWGA Board has had their first organizational meeting, and there is excitement in the air! From our tournament schedule to other activities, your Board has planned a year of fun golf and competition!
Our main goal for 2014 was to plan a year that would provide, as much as possible, the same quality of tournaments and activities that we have enjoyed in the past, and to do so within a budget that has access to significantly less reserves than what has been available in recent seasons. These reserves have been given back to the membership in the form of tournament/cart fees, membership gifts and tent rental. We must now 'live within our means'. To accomplish this goal, you will notice an increase in dues to $35 and an increase in at least one major tournament entry fee.
A second goal is to increase membership, a recurring goal since the beginning of our organization! Look for some new ideas the board will try this year to appeal to more of our residents with a Class V membership.
Please watch for e-mails from The Woods and from our Membership Chairperson, Mona Zammetti, to renew your membership/join. We look forward to hearing from each of you and from many new members! We are all ambassadors of our organization, and if we work together, our membership will continue to grow.
Our Handicap Representative, Jan Redinger, reminds us that those who are fortunate enough to play at a course that observes an active season in the winter, must post their scores. This can be done on the GHIN website or back here at The Woods when our season opens again. So, save those scorecards! (Using the GHIN website or App is the easiest way!)
I encourage you to visit our website on a regular basis: http://www.thewwga.org (as we continue to update) for minutes of our meetings, 2014 tournament schedule, and other pertinent information. As always, the financial statement is available upon request, and all meetings are open to the membership. The next meeting is March 28, 2014, 3pm, in the PVP Conference Room.
Best wishes, wherever you may be. And, if you are lucky enough to be someplace warm, continue to hit 'em straight! See you all on the Woods' course in the spring!!!
Nancy Fairall, President
