F. EXECUTIVE SESSION : None
1) Bill Gately, Mike Mazzola, and Mark Thomas were nominated and unanimously elected to Membership of the Golf Committee for three year terms to expire at the Annual Meeting of 2007.
H. OTHER BUSINESS
1.) There were several suggestions with respect to Tournaments. It would be worthwhile to consider innovative public relations methods to attract non-members to play in club tournaments open to them (perhaps posters or notices). A season long tournament based on each Member’s best scores on individual holes was suggested. AC Riley will research how this is conducted elsewhere and provide the information to the Committee.
2.) Financials seem reasonably on target for both revenues and expenses.
3.) The idea of elongating the pond on the 5th Hole toward the green to improve drainage was deemed reasonable.
4.) The idea of expanding the facility with a kitchen and an enlarged function room was brought up. The consensus was that there is a need, but that funding would have to be accomplished outside of the operating budget and capital reserve.
5.) Mark will explore the status of crediting discounts for early payments of membership fees.
6.) The next Membership Workday will be September 19th after the scramble for a couple hours of picking up brush from the woods around the course.
7.) With respect to engendering Lounge business, there were two suggestions—On some days offer severely discounted food or beverage items (e.g., root beer floats for kids, or wings, etc); and explore with Krainin placing flyers in their rental packets.
8.) It was announced that starting next year, no credits can be carried over from year to year. This will help reduce the inventory and will greatly simplify the finances.
