What a great day for our opening game! There were 30 of us on the links on July 2 with fantastic weather on a course that was in top shape.
Isn’t it great to be back on the Falcon Lake Golf Course here in Manitoba?
After our inaugural game we were treated by Falcon Golf Course chef’s Jennifer and Jeremy with an outstanding lunch followed by our annual general meeting . Our president Susan Stanley led a short presentation introducing the executive followed with brief reports from our Treasurer (Christine Ross), Secretary (Janet Potter) and our new Sports Captain (Dawna Wallace).
Susan also announce the names of our three newest members Darlene Chimilar, Doneta Brotchie and Cathie Maric—welcome aboard! If you see one of our newest members on the course make them feel comfortable by saying hello.
Lets all acknowledge that the biggest task on our executive is the position of Sports Captain. Every week our Sports Captain (Dawna Wallace) is responsible for arranging our teams, organizing the mini-tournaments and then collecting prizes for our wind-up.
This year Dawna has requested that we post our handicap range on a new tab on the sign-up sheets so she can make the best experience for all of us when she’s organizing the weekly games. The handicap tab is on the bottom of the sign up sheets—please help her, it’ll only take a minute. Knowing our approximate handicaps will help Dawna match our players each week and allow her to mix our teams evenly for the mini-tournaments. Good idea Dawna! Lets support her.
Finally, just a reminder, if you can not make a game that you have already signed up for, please call the pro shop and let them know you will not be there. Don’t leave your team mates waiting at the tee box wondering if you are coming or not.
