The meeting was called to order by Captain Donna Reich at 2:28 p.m. The required quorum of members was present.
The minutes of the General Meeting of September 15th were approved as read.
Cathy Houston reported that our current balance is $11,157.86. Our proposed budget for this year is $2,465,00. The budget was approved by the members.
Liz Lord reported that she has many ideas for decorations, etc. She passed around a sign up sheet for those who want to help out. The theme is: Run for the Roses: Kentucky Derby. It will be held August 3rd, 4th and 5th. Sign up sheet in upstairs locker room.
Central Valley: Raquel Myers reported that there will be 10 teams but only 9 team play days. Tracy will not host a team play day. Also, we will continue paying $35 to play. Donna Reich suggested that we let other clubs know that we can now drive on our course. Kay Smith will be Raquel’s co-captain.
Becky Frazier stated that their first team play day would be tomorrow. On April 20th, we will host the play day. She asked for volunteers to help out that day. Becky also reported that our team play outfits are in and ready for pick-up. There was some money left over from last year’s play day and each team player will be given credit in their accounts.
Fran Shipilov reported that at the Regional meeting they discussed how to get more of their club’s members to play in the Handicap and Championship tournaments. Some of the other clubs have started taking the best 2 out of 3 scores. This would enable those who might miss one day of the tournament to play. It was voted on and accepted. We will have to change the wording of our Rules and Regulations to state the above. Also, Fran reported that to eliminate a lot of work for the Tournament chairs, they will use the handicaps from the first of each month as we’ve always done in the past. Tournaments we will use the 1st and 15th handicaps. Hilary Frigillana reported that some ladies save up their scores and then enter them at the end of the month. This way their handicap doesn’t change.
For our members who work and can’t play on our play days, they can now play on Saturdays. This will enable them to play in tournaments and be counted in Eclectic. The Saturday play days motion was passed.
WGANC is going to have “Pendant Days”. Players having a total of 3 out of 4 best scores will receive a pin. These days will be; May 18th, July 13th, August 24th, and September 14th.
Hilary reported that cell phones with compasses will not be allowed during play.
Donna Reich reported that we have $500 as a carry over for Donations from last year. Do we want to spend that money on donations? Motion was approved.
Proposed By-Law change: Article VIII, Section 1. B) was changed for more flexibility in our scheduling of our meetings. It will read: “ Three General meetings of DBWGC will be held during the year as close as possible to March, June, and September as indicated in the annual calendar of scheduled events.” This change was voted on and approved.
Donna Reich stated that our group needs to vote on the placement of our $750 donation.
- CY Youth Club–it helps underprivileged children.
- Delta Community Services–aid for families in need such as; payment of utility bills, food, etc.
- Save the Calif. Alliance; the anti-gates project being proposed for the Delta.
Becky Frazier said that we should focus on helping others, such as the Delta Comm. Services would do. Fran Shipilov moved that we donate $500 to the Delta Comm. Services and $250 for the CY Youth Club. The motion was voted on and approved.
Rally 4 a Cure:
Donna reported that the 9-Hole ladies will run this year’s Rally 4 a Cure and that Becky Carter will represent our group.
Donna also reported that the next Open Days is at Brookside on April 21st. Stockton will have an Open Day on April 22nd.
