Motion to bring meeting to order @ 6:00 PM, seconded Members in attendance: Ray Hill Jason Poole Frank Grimes Dean Bingham Josh Knight Dana Vicich Randy Bruemmer Tom Matesevac
1) Franks & Beans Tuesday Nights Start date: April 20, 2010, Follow the same schedule as the doubles league. $5 entry fee, optional Ace ($1) & CTPs (2-$2/CTP) = $5, CTPs will be designated as Prize Fund & Club Enhancements. The payout will be the top 30% with a minimum of $5 for last cash. $0.50 from each entry fee will pay the hot round of the day. Handling of non-rated players: If you do not have a PDGA rating, your first 3 rounds at the handicap leagues will be free to establish your handicap. You will only be allowed to participate in the Ace Fund, CTPs, and Bag Tags. Another option to acquire your handicap; if a club officer is willing to play those three rounds outside of league night. After you accumulate more rounds your rating will be taken from your best 3 of your last 5 rounds. Frank Grimes and Dean Bingham will be running it. We have decided to stick with pen and paper for now until we progress with leagues. Need for a computer will be addressed at a later date. 2) Discontinuum Club Challenge on 3/28/10 in Hoffman Estates We need commitments from members. We didnt realize it landed on the last day of winter leagues. If you do not have a lot vested in going to the last league come out and represent J-Town. You will find information on the message board under Leagues & Tourneys. It is a free, non-sanctioned event. There will be three other clubs competing: Discontinuum, Fox Valley, and Streamwood. J-Town will be responsible for setting-up a few of the temp holes. Since they have expanded to 2 courses to include us, it would be nice to show up with great numbers. J-Town needs to bring a few extra baskets. We are looking for some good baskets we could borrow from members. 3) Ice Bowl Review Ice Bowl was a hit! Thank you players and of course everyone that was involved. 88 players and sponsors raised $3559 & 300 lbs. of food. All proceeds went to the Morning Star Mission. See you next year! 4) Financials, Member Count (see attached) 5) Inner-Club Team Challenges To be discussed at a later date 6) Free Club Member PDGA Tournament Ray Hill is going to contact Brett Comincioli about setting a July 9, 2010 date for a members-only sanctioned tournament. Details: 9:30 AM tee-off, 2 rounds (Highland, Channahon), 2 divisions (Pro/Am). This is simply a perk for club members to accumulate points and ratings. The Pro division will have a $10 entry fee that will all go to the Pro purse. We are going to work on getting trophies for 1st place in each division. 7) Addressing Lost/Stolen Bag Tags $5 first instance, $15 second instance, hopefully there are no more than two. 8 ) Member Concerns/Feedback Address working relationship with Mokena Club working with area schools Motion to adjourn @ 7:39 PM, seconded
