COMMITTEE REPORTS:

Tournament Chairman – Nothing to report

Scoring Chairman – Nothing to report

Verifying Chairman - Charlie announced the 2 winners for closest to the pin shot.

The team winners for today's match will be available on our website tomorrow.

Rules Chairman – Jim postponed a powerpoint presentation about how and why to take free relief until our next general meeting due to some technical equipment issues.

Social Chairman – David provided information on what our actual costs currently are for food and drinks at our general meetings. For 1 keg of beer its $225, and we sometimes use more than one. This amounts to about $3 per member on average. For the food at these meetings it ranges between $9 for sandwiches and dessert to $13 for a hot meal with desert. Our cost per member is between $12 and $16 per member. This is why the board had voted to increase the cost from $5 to $8 for each of these meeting/food & drink events. After announcing at our October general meeting that we will be going to $8 and after lots of discussion, the membership made a motion that we go to $10 and this was approved by an overwhelming majority. David also said that last year during Covid we had 4 free hot dog and hamburger events with drinks after some golf matches and also a picnic and other gatherings. These events are totally or partially funded by money collected thru memberships, weekly golf fees, 50/50 raffles, etc. and this is what also helps to subsidized these general meeting costs.

David said that if anyone thinks they are getting a raw deal because we went to $10 for these few general meeting events they are sadly mistaken. He asked that this information be passed on to any member not in attendance.

Publicity Chairman – Nothing to report

Sunshine Chairman – Bud informed the membership that Bob Ragnone's wife had died.

Old Business – None

New Business – Bud held the drawing for our 50/50 drawing. There were 4 winners at $30 each.

Our next scheduled meeting will be January 26th in D&E

A motion to adjourn by Earle Martin, seconded by Terry Vito was unanimously approved.

Meeting adjourned at 12.32 pm

Respectfully submitted,

Ken Gionet

Secretary
