2. Committee Reports
a. Frank Harrison
-- New handicaps are now in the computer. To start the new year, the handicaps include: 49 names in A, 53 in Group B and 49 in Group C.
-- This totals to 151 names, and only 120 folks have paid their dues. Those unpaid folks will gradually be deleted over the next month or so.
-- The new handicap software calculates the handicaps based on the average of the 10 best scores selected from the last 20 games played.
b. Bob Keeler
-- Reported that currently 120 folks have paid their club dues for 2020.
-- Last year the club printed about 400 copies of the Roster Book. However, we still had almost 200 copies on hand. Bob supported cutting backing on the number of copies printed. This would also reduce the dollars spent on the printing.
-- The board approved printing only 200 copies this year and see how it goes before reducing further the number of copies printed.
-c. Dave Emal
-- reported the speaker for the March Breakfast meeting would be Steve Carfano who will speak on fitting the right set of clubs to the senior golfer and what this could mean to the individual golfer.
-- reported that the Youth Challenge is now set for July 29th on Course 1. The Youth are not expected to have as strong of a team as they did last year.
