Booklet: Jerry distributed data sheets to be completed and returned by our next meeting. He added a line for the pro-shop e-mail.
Scoring and Handicap: Jay Levine announced that after analyzing the scores this year he realized that there are many participants who do not play many events and therefore it could possibly take a few years to accumulate the necessary rounds to significantly alter the handicap. In order to make it more current he suggested and accepted by all, to calculate the handicap on the basis of the better 4 of the last 8 scores. At the October meeting he will distribute a new list with both the old and the new indexes. He was asked to adjust the score sheet to delineate which tee each player plays from.
Good and Welfare: Mike Lapkin discussed the President’s Day event and handed out the days program. the starting time will be a 1:00 PM shotgun start. ALL SHOULD PLAN TO ARRIVE BETWEEN 11:30 AND 12:00 NOON IN ORDER TO HAVE A LIGHT LUNCH AND WARM UP.
President's Report: Chuck told us there is still a problem locating a neutral course for the Championship match which will be held on September 30th.
There was no old business, or new business.
Good and Welfare: Chuck reminded us that October meeting will be a long so he opened the floor for preliminary discussions of the probable rule changes. The exchange of views was very productive.
