CGA News and Notes-Monday February 16, 2015

Good President's Day to all of you. I hope all of you are staying warm and safe during these past few days. I have some information to pass on to you at this time.
1-The CGA Board is meeting on Sunday March 1st at 3pm at the Tennerton UM Church to discuss final plans for the 2015 golf season. If you have any suggestions please pass them on to me prior to this meeting.
2-So far I have scheduled 28 outings for this season. I plan to add 2 more in the near future to bring the total to 30. We have 20 scheduled for Buckhannon (15 at Riverbend and 5 at Buckhannon CC) and will have 10 other outings planned.
3-Mike Rogers has assured me that no footgolf will be played during our scheduled outings at Riverbend. He is also offering a CGA outing season price of $100 for all 15 scheduled outings at Riverbend. To break even you would need to play a minimum of 10 of the 15 outings. Anyone interested in this offer please let me know by Sunday April 12th at the Preseason Meeting and Tipoff outing.
4-Pat Brake (President of Buckhannon CC) told me yesterday that Buckhannon CC is honored to host our CGA Chapter. He said we are respectful to the course and we take good care of their carts. Would Jesus expect any less from us?
He also wanted me to pass on to you that they are looking for new members. They are currently offering a special family deal for the next 3 years. The person would pay $600 the first year, $700 the second year and $800 the third year. They would then go to the regular rate the fourth year. This does not include a cart or storage fees for a cart. Anyone interested in speaking to Pat about this can call him.
5-Our April 19th outing at Stonewall is free of charge. We will meet at 2pm for registration, hold devotions and prayer around 2:30 and tee off at 3pm. We currently have 39 signed up to play. Here is my current list:
Harry Grose
Beryl McKisic +3
Ron/Sandy Shingleton +2
Mike/Natalie Hinkle
Bill/Allison Burford
Tim Judy
Travis Armstrong
Clay Persinger
Randy Kirchberg +3
Brian Hayhurst
Larry Wamsley
Dave Gooden
Bob/Betty Heavner
Bob/Ellnora Withers
Richard Trent
Mike Garrett
Bill Roff
Ron/Melissia Lamb
Phil Austin
Ken Riffle
Gene Bryant
Larry Ransinger
Bryan Smith
Jeff/Lynelle Zickefoose
Ezra Richards
6-We are doing an overnight trip to Alpine Lake June 24-25. I have booked 8 rooms at this time (2 per room). The cost is $120 for each golfer and $50 for each nongolfer. This includes 1 night stay, 2 18 holes of golf with cart and a breakfast buffet on Thursday morning. To hold a room I need $50 from each golfer and $25 from each nongolfer at this time. The final payment is due by June 1st to the CGA. So far Natalie and I have 1 room and Harry Grose is in a second room (he needs someone to room with).
7-Our third trip to the Greenbrier is scheduled for Monday September 7th (Labor Day). The cost is $75 per person for our Chapter members if paid in full by June 1st and $80 if after. The cost is $80 for non Chapter members if paid in full by June 1st and $85 after. To reserve one of the 64 spots I need a $50 deposit payable to the CGA.
8-All payments should be made out to the CGA and mailed to me Mike Hinkle at 56 Hickory Flat Road, Buckhannon WV 26201. Please also include a note as to what you are paying on.
Have a great day. Look forward to seeing all of you in around 6 weeks.
God Bless

CGA News and Notes-Tuesday February 10, 2015

Good Tuesday to you all. I wanted to pass on some information about our outings at Riverbend for this year. I have scheduled 15 outings with Mike at Riverbend. This includes 11 Thursday evenings, 3 Sunday afternoons and 1 Saturday outing. The price to play these outings will remain $15 per player ($10 for Riverbend and $5 for CGA). Mike is offering a CGA outing season price of $100 for all 15 outings if anyone is interested. If a person joins under this plan they would then only pay the $5 to the CGA each time they play.
Our preseason meeting is set for Sunday April 12th at 2pm at Riverbend. We will meet from 2 until 2:45 then get ready and play a 9 hole tipoff outing at 3pm that day.
So far I have around 30 people signed up to play at Stonewall on Sunday April 19th at 2pm. The outing is free and I currently have room for 10 players if anyone is still interested in signing up.
God Bless each and everyone of you. Please be in prayer for the CGA Ministry.
Thanks and see you soon.

The CGA Board is meeting on Sunday March 1st to finalize plans for this season.
We will be playing once again on Labor Day at the Greenbrier and are taking an overnight trip to Alpine Lake June 24-25. I need $50 per player deposit for either of these outings to hold a spot. The cost for the Alpine Lake trip is $120 per person for 2 days of golf w/cart, breakfast buffet and 1 night stay (2 per room), I have booked 8 rooms at this time. The Greenbrier outing is $75 per person for Chapter members and $80 per person for others if paid in full by June 1st. After June 1 it is $80 for chapter members and $85 for others.
Hope your winter is going well. The start of the CGA season is only 72 days away.
God Bless and talk with you later.

CGA News and Notes-Thursday January 8, 2015

Good day all. Even with temps around zero I am still working on the 2015 golf schedule for the CGA. I have 3 things to mention at this time that are available for signups this year.
First-I have 4 dates set with Stonewall. They are all Sunday afternoon dates:
April 19, May 24, July 26 and September 27 (registration for all of these are 2pm)
Randy Hernly of Stonewall told me he is starting a short course at Stonewall using the current layout with shorter holes (called the King's Course). He wants some feedback on this layout and he thought the CGA might be interested in being a test group. He has offered April 19th for us to play the short course FREE of charge. He just wants our feedback following the round. The course can be played in around 3 hours or so. I am starting a signup sheet to join us for this FREE round of golf. If you are interested drop me an email with the names of the players who would like to participate. At this time I have 40 spots available, but possibly  could get more if needed.
The other 3 outings will remain $47 to participate in May, July and August.
Second-I have scheduled a trip to Alpine Lake (2 days/1 night) for Wednesday June 24 and Thursday June 25. The cost will be around $120 per person which includes 1 night stay, 2 rounds of golf with cart and a breakfast buffet on Thursday morning. I have reserved 8 rooms at this time and will call about more if needed. The deposit to signup is $50 per person at this time. We will start golf on Wednesday around noon and will tee off at around 9am on Thursday. The cost for nongolfers will be a little less. The cost to reserve one of the 8 rooms at this time is $50 for singles and $100 per couple. The entire amount will be due the CGA around  June 1st. You can send deposits to me at 56 Hickory Flat Road, Buckhannon WV 26201. Please make checks to the CGA.
Third-The Greenbrier event is set for Labor Day September 7th. We will once again start registration around 11am with a 1pm shotgun start. We have room for 64 golfers max. I need a  $50 deposit per player to hold a spot in this event. The total cost for playing this year will be:
CGA of Northcentral WV Member $80 ($75 if paid in full by June 1st)
Others $85 ($80 if paid in full by June 1st)
All payments can be sent to me at 56 Hickory Flat Road, Buckhannon WV with checks payable to CGA.
I will continue to work on the schedule for the next few weeks. The CGA Board is meeting on Sunday March 1st to make final plans and the season will tip off on Sunday April 12th.
God Bless and keep warm.

CGA News and Notes-Thursday December 18, 2014

Good day to all of you. In looking back at the Christmas Dinner from last Friday, I had a thought to pass on to you. I felt the evening went great. What made it great was the testimonies of Beryl, Lynn, my dad and the Christmas message by Pastor Bob Anderson. It was great to see all of you. Please keep the CGA in your prayers as we plan for the 2015 season. I will be working on a schedule during January and February.
Please mark your calendars for Sunday April 12, 2015 as we begin the 2015 season with our annual start up meeting and tipoff outing.
The biggest part of our CGA schedule for the past 5 years has been our outings at Riverbend on every other Thursday. I need some help from those of you who have been members of Riverbend in the past. Are you still planning to join Riverbend in 2015? Please drop me an email to let me know what you are thinking at this point.
Thanks and God Bless
