PRESIDENT’S REPORT

Congratulations to Tom Anderson for his second club championship. Flight winners include John Jurczak, A filght, Don Farmen B flight, and Ed Walker C flight.

We had 60 for lunch and the raffle and as usual the food was great.

For October, we have the Mesa Linda tournament on the 6th and Los Lagos best ball waltz on the 20th. Make up your team and have fun.

The 2012 Board is listed below as we welcome Rich Claus and Ron Plummer to our team of directors.

CMSGA RAFFLE LOOT

The loot included 3 golf bags, a Sun Mountain cart, 13 dzn balls, 3 bottles of Greg Norman wine, numerous shirts, hats, gloves, training aids, a Callaway golf travel mug, plus a putter and rescue club. On top of all that we gave away $50 in cash to 8 of our very lucky members. These things just keep getting better every year.

TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR'S REPORT

Not everyone is an early morning golfer.  Thanks to all who played, for showing up at daybreak, for one of our smoothest shotgun starts ever.  We ended with an action packed banquet, announcing our 2011 Club Champion, Flight Champions and holding a huge cash and prize raffle give-away.

I wasn't in the group, but wish I could have watched our two past Club Champions, paired together in a close match.  Jim Baker had natural birdies on three out of four par fives.  Tom Anderson birdied three holes in a row on the back nine, starting with the last par 5.  In the end, Tom, our defending Champ of 2010, won in two days of play on Los Lagos and Mesa Linda, scoring a 3 over par total of 145.  Tom works hard at his game, something we should consider.  Tom will have the option of playing in one of several SCGA Tournament of Club Champions held in December.

Our Flight Champions were not bothered by the early start.  Congratulations to John Jurczak, Larry Pagel and Ed Walker for each landing in the low net sixties to earn a place in the CMSGA Hall of Fame.  This year the Board added a requirement to have played in three club events in the past 12 months to be eligible for Flight Champion, similar to the existing requirement for Club Champion.  Don Farmen had a great round on Thursday, and would have been a repeat Flight Champion, had he met that requirement.

If you have a chance to thank Brad Booth for his help to our club, please do.  He gave us discounts on the raffle items and carts, which made playing in this tournament a great value.  He has reserved premium tee times for our group every month, and managed the difficult task of fitting in an extra monthly tournament for us this year.

Following our October 6 individual net tournament on Mesa Linda, our October 20 tournament will be on Los Lagos.  This will be a team format called Best Ball Waltz.  This first hole scores one best ball, the second hole two best balls, the third hole three best balls, and then repeats, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3.  Pick your partners or sign up as a single.  Either way is fine, just remember the deadlines are 8 days before the tournament.

In October, we will begin work on the 2012 tournament schedule.  We plan to continue the first Thursdays, as is, on Mesa Linda, with no team events.  The third Thursdays are likely to continue to see mix play shared between Los Lagos and Mesa Linda.  These will be primarily team events.  We are open to format suggestions and would value your input.
