Meeting called to order by Jan McCleery, Captain of the DBWGC at 1:45 p.m. in the Fairway Grill area.
Motion to approve the Minutes from the last General Meeting, March15, 2011 was made by Cathy Fancey and seconded by Jenny Dillon.
Old Business: It is said by notice the board in the Pro Shop is the “Official” posting board. Upstairs in the locker room is a place for pictures and posting of business also. Email and web is also considered a way to submit and transmit business for the club.
By-law Change in September needed to be reposted as not enough time was given to posting. Article X
is now been amended to read with the blue print being added or in parenthesis “A quorum is required for any Bylaw changes (members in attendance plus absentee ballots).” A majority affirmative vote of the membership present “plus absentee ballots” shall be necessary for passage.
Question by Debbie Martin asked if the By-law change became in effect for nominee voting and for today’s votes. Jan explained that nominee voting was accepted by membership before September 2010 and was implemented for Board positions for the 2011 Board and for Tournament rules. The passage of the Bylaw will start after passage.
Motion to pass by Cathy Fancey and seconded by Cam Donald, 4 opposed, majority said aye. Motion passed.
WGANC Her’s and His Tournament is July 27 & 28 will be held at Discovery Bay and Brookside; split day play. [As a result of hosting a WGANC tournament here, DBWGC is exempt from hosting an Open Day for 2 years – this year and next.] As a result we will need support from men and women to work the tournament. We need men to greet and get bags from cars, check-ins and hole supervisors as well as 2 people standing by who are eligible to play if there are not enough people to supervise a twosome.
Hilary Frigillana explained that the score cards when the completed round was done went to the Rules table first then the score cards were delivered by volunteer to the scoring table.
Treasurers Report: Cathy Houston review the financial report and on the report was included the breakdown of the $75.00 annual dues.
Roster Committee: Cathy Fancey and Joanne Smith will be working on the rosters; Hilary Frigillana volunteered to join. Cam Donald feels the roster is perfect the way it was for 2011. Jan interjected that something more elaborate would need a budget allocation or next year a new budget vote. Explanation went on to include that most tournaments were self funding, guest day and Invitational included, but notwithstanding the budget is scaled back and thin.
Hilary Frigillana made a motion to vote on rosters to leave them they way they were produced for 2011. 6 voted to change and the majority voted to leave them as they were, but to include the most improved player, which was left out from the 2011 roster.
Judy Bartoli asked if 2 years ago we increased dues to $5.00 for the roster expense and the roster expense is only $2.46, where did the $2.54 go. Jan McCleery explained that in September 2009 it was voted in favor for the increase, March 2010 the increase came into effect, September 2010 voted on and passed by majority to scale back the roster due to printing and paper cost increases. Explained that even for $5.00 the spiral bound roster of old were going to cost more than $5.00 if done the same way. Jan McCleery stated regarding Judy Bartoli’s questions that the balance of the money was absorbed into the operating budget for trophies and sunshine.
Because of voting and the roster will stand as it did for 2011 a committee isn’t needed because the template is in place, but proof readers are needed so please volunteer.
Invitational: Beckie Carter reported on how things were shaping up. She passed around a signup sheet with shoe sized and it was necessary to either fill out shoe size or to check for the proper shoe size listed on the sheet. Gift certificated were doing well and many business locally were donating. Mary Watkins was contacted by Liberty High School Girls golf program and they would like to volunteer time to help at the Invitational. Pictures of Castlewood CC borrowed props of the Disney Castle were passed around. So far 26 ½ teams were signed up, an invitation will be sent out to the 9 hole Breakers to play.
Joanne Smith is collecting raffle prizes; preferably gift cards. Cam suggested gift cards from a national company for our guests so should they win, they could use the gift card.
