Annual Meeting - October 11 at Heritage Village

There were two important votes at this year's meeting. First, the following slate of officers was elected to serve the next two years:
    • Sara Papa, President
    • Patti Cheyne, First Vice President
    • Debra Palmer, Second Vice President
    • Sandra Smith, Treasurer
    • Suzanne Harris, Secretary

Robin Bickerstaff, the outgoing President, will continue to serve on the Executive Committee in her role as immediate Past President and Nominating Committee chairperson. Congratulations and thanks are due to Robin for her leadership over the past two years, including significant extra work in integrating our new tournament software with our tournament operations.

Also, the members at the Annual Meeting approved the proposed by-laws change that adjusts the number of members needed for a quorum at annual and special meetings.

Fittingly to end the year, the scheduled 18-Hole Scramble Tournament after the meeting was cancelled due to rain.
