2010 SWGA Annual Meeting

Yesterday was our annual meeting, luncheon and election of new officers. If you are one of the 57% of members who were not there, this will give you the highlights of the meeting.  If you were there, this will serve as a reminder.

1. Although there was previous discussion about increasing our individual dues for SWGA membership, it was decided to keep the fee at $20.

2. Each club’s SWGA assessment will increase from $20 to $30 and the $50 Team Match assessment from each club will be dropped, so this will save each association $40 per year.

3. Next year, for the annual meeting and luncheon, members will pay the entire cost of the meal rather than SWGA picking up a portion of the expense.

4. The general membership voted to dispense with paying the monthly SWGA playday payouts. Recognition will remain the same, but there will be no funds paid out. This will put more money in our account to help with expenses for the City Championship, Team Matches, and the end-of-year special awards.

5. There was also a vote to change the rule regarding a member’s handicap index when it goes higher than 30.0 after joining SWGA. If, during the year, a member’s index goes above 30.0, the member can remain in the SWGA, but cannot participate in an SWGA event until her index comes back down to 30.0.

6. It was also voted to discontinue making the annual scrapbooks due to the new age of online picture systems.

7. The events that require your participation in order to achieve the 100% participation award at the end of the year are listed below all the blog postings on this page and are identified as such. The other SWGA outgings are in the section identified as “Other Golfing Events”.  You can print out any part of this blog by doing a "Print Preview" and printing the page you need.  It may be handy to print all these golfing events for your calendar.

We had a great meeting, and if you weren’t there, you missed some good fellowship. As information, the new Officers and Club Reps are listed in the right column of this blog.  There is also a slideshow presentation in the right column of this page.  Just click on any of the pictures and they will come up fullsize.

Since it would be very difficult to thank everyone individually for my "special" gift that was presented at the meeting, I want to extend a very heartfelt THANK YOU to the SWGA for this most thoughtful gesture.  If you weren't aware of what happened, I was presented two of the most wonderful Bodum insulated glass cups as a thank you for my work on this blog.  It certainly wasn't necessary nor expected, but it sure is appreciated.  I love doing the blog and just ask that you help by providing me newsworthy info and pictures to be included.  Thanks again.
