Dear CWGA Members –

Your Nominating Committee has been hard at work filling our slate of officers for the 2021 Season.  We have a single spot yet to be filled and are sending this note to ask all our members to consider volunteering for Vice President for this next year.  The position can be filled by a single person or by two members who can serve as Co-Vice Presidents.  There is no minimum length of CWGA membership required for this position – everyone is eligible!!!

As we all know well, our CWGA has been there for all of us during these pandemic times and for many of us, kept us sane when most other activities were restricted.  Our organization does not just happen by chance.  Many members have stepped forward to ensure an organized Day’s Play, Scoring, payouts, tournaments, and special events like Guest Day and Stagette .  These volunteers actually do the work of our organization.  But we need members to also step up for leadership positions.

Below is the position description for Vice President and we are asking any interested members to contact a member of our Nominating Committee by September 21 if you are willing to fill this position next year.

The VICE PRESIDENT shall accept this position knowing that she will automatically be the first considered for the position of President for the following year.  She shall assist the President in the performance of all her duties.  In the absence of the President, she shall exercise all the powers and discharge the duties of the President.  She shall be one of three empowered to sign all checks drawn upon the funds of this organization.  She shall be responsible for reviewing the By-laws and Standing Rules.  She shall take a count of members when necessary to determine the presence of a quorum.  She shall be responsible for the recognition and honoring of the outgoing President at the end-of-the-season event.

News from Rules

News From Rules                                                                                  August 8, 2021

Our Charbonneau Golf Club General Manager has determined all repaired and reseeded drainage areas as “no play zones” and players must take free relief from those areas. Please help these areas heal by not playing out of them and avoiding foot and cart traffic over them. Stumps remaining anywhere in the general area, resulting from the ice storm, have been designated ground under repair and players may take free relief from the stump (see Rule 16.1.b).

As a reminder, you may not take free relief from tree roots associated with any remaining stump or tree anywhere on the course or a ball within the small trees marking 125 yards to the hole. Your options are to play the ball as it lies, decide your ball is unplayable (see Rule 19.1), or play the ball from where your previous stroke was made under penalty of stroke and distance (see Rule 18.1).
