Hi everyone. This email is about the proposed CGA event at Twin Falls. As of today we have only 2 rooms that have been booked of the 10 rooms reserved. The final day to book a room for this trip is February 28th. I will check with Twin Falls again on March 1st to decide what to do about this trip. If you want to book a room call 304-294-4000 or call toll free 1-800-callWV and have them connect you with Twin Falls Resort. If the response is not good I will then cancel this trip at that time.
Thanks and God bless
Good day to all of you. The CGA Board met this past Sunday to discuss the upcoming CGA golf season. All officers were present including:
Vice President-Clay Persinger
Technology Coordinator-Phil Austin
Board Members-Darrell and Michelle Linger and Charlie Straley
We approved the following items for this season:
Dues will continue to be: Renew for 2017 $15/individual, $25/couple and $25 for new individual and $40 for new couple.
If anyone has a church or knows a business that may sponsor an outing the suggested donation would be $25 for a 9 hole outing and $40 for an 18 hole outing.
We will continue to give out prizes for long drives, long putts, closest to the pin as long as we have the $ to do so. We will not give out prizes for 1st place in outings.
This year instead of the $5 per outing we collected for the CGA we will have a donation jar at each outing. We ask that you give as the Lord leads you to this ministry.
All outings this year will be pick your own team. We will only draw for teams if you ask us to do so.
All players will pick the tees they feel fit their game. The only tees that we will ask you to play are the long drive and closest to the pin holes.
The only outings that will require prior signup (8 days ahead) are the ones that require us to let them know ahead of time for tee times.
This year there is NO minimum for an outing. We will play with whatever shows up.
So far I have scheduled 20 outings (7 at Deerfield, 7 at Bel Meadows, 5 at Buckhannon CC and 1 outing at Polish Pines in Keyser which has been changed from Saturday May 6 to Saturday May 13th with a noon tee time.) I will schedule other outings after the first of March when I see how the trip to Twin Falls comes out.
I can’t emphasize enough how important this year is to our chapter of the CGA. Last year we were down in membership and outing attendance. We need new members to join our ministry. We plan to stress advertisement of our ministry. If you can assist us in this matter we would appreciate the help. Please invite others to join us. Please get the message out to churches and to the community. Our preseason meeting and tipoff outing is Sunday April 23rd at Deerfield CC with the meeting starting at 2pm.
Please pass the word and be in prayer for the CGA. The board will meet again on Sunday March 12th if you have any suggestions.
