Chits - New Format

We are using a new process this year and the chit will be the email itself rather than a pdf attached to the email. Make sure admin@cwga.org is in your contacts so the email doesn't go into your spam folder. To redeem, just print the email and bring to your pro shop, or as always you can donate the chit to the PME/CWGA Scholarship Fund by letting Patti Cheyne, our Treasurer, know. Redemption details are included in the chit email, but if you have any questions just send an email to CWGAawards@cwga.org or admin@cwga.org.
