FINANCES

 

- We are getting close to our overdraft limit.

- Very few members took advantage of paying in installments or early payment.

- Next year we may consider a discount of some kind for members who pay early.

 

TOURNAMENTS

 

- Kal Tire 2 man is sorted.

- Civic still needs a corporate sponsor.


- There was some discussion on whether or not practice rounds should still be provided at no cost.

- Also it was thought that the scheduling of the practice round unnecessarily kept

green fees away for the entire day.

- The tournament committee will need to determine how we deal with the practice rounds

for the major tournaments going forward.

- There was some discussion on bringing back the Audrey Nightingale tournament.

 

ADVERTISING

 

- We have received an invoice from CJTT.

- Calendar has gone to the printers for printing.

but Alvin Willard reported that the council is still interested in the project.

NEW BUSINESS

 

- A proposal to replace our existing carts with brand new carts was discussed.

Although it would be nice to have new carts we don=t have the monies to buy

them and now is not a good time to enter into another lease.

- We are going to take a hard look at what is needed for phone lines and from which supplier.

- Ross Latter is going to inform Zante=s about the pot luck supper scheduled for 01 May.
