Monthly News and Highlights…October 2014
President's Report
Hello Members,
lease update
Well, EBRPD finally penned out a deal for an “interim management team” to run the WP golf course after Nov. 30… Touchstone Golf is the new interim team. I still have not heard what the fate of the restaurant and bar is after Nov. 30. We believe the Touchstone deal will extend into early 2015.

We still have no word about the RFP process and if any acceptable bids were turned in to EBRPD.

2015 Membership Drive News: The Board has decide to offer a $5 discount to anyone that turns in a membership form by Oct 19. After the tournament the membership fee reverts back to the regular pricing. SO sign-up today!

December Tournament: Because EBRPD was unable or unwilling to give us information regarding their Interim plans for the golf course, the Board needed to make alternate tournament plans for December. TC Tony was able to get us into Dublin Ranch for December. I think you will really like this venue and even better, the price will still be $50!

Here's to seeing you on the course!

Tournament Chair Report
Sorry for the delay in getting this out but I was on Vacation the first part of the month and forgot all about it.

The Skins competition is all set for October. As you know there were 2 automatic qualifiers with the other 2 spots filled in by a random draw. On the Gross side the automatic qualifiers were Charles Bigelow and Mark Hemenez. The random draws filling out the foursome are Steve Davis and Mike Grabowski. On the Net side the automatic qualifiers were Joe Johnson and Mike Jones. The random draws filling out the foursome are Tracy Watts and Mike Goodman. As of this writing all 8 have signed up so the alternates appear to be out of luck.

For the foreseeable future we will be playing Lift, Clean and Place. I will evaluate the course and make a decision on the day before the tournament so make sure you read the Rules/Info sheet on the first tee to see what will be allowed.

I will let our president address the course situation but it looks like the course will remain open. I have a tentative 2015 schedule and will meet with the group who will operate the course until permanent owner can be found and finalize our 2015 tournament dates and get them posted on the web site as soon as possible.

Just a reminder that the December tournament will not be played at Willow Park and will be an away tournament played at Dublin Ranch golf course. The entry fee will be $50 but as we have to pay the course ahead of time late entries will probably not be able to be accommodated unless there are opening after the final count is given to Dublin Ranch so you must have your entry in by the deadline to play in the tournament. More details will be provided soon.

Speaking of 2015, we have begun our 2015 membership drive. As mentioned the renewal discount of $5 runs through the October tournament but you do not have to be entered in the tournament to get the discount. After the tournament the membership fees revert back to the regular prices as stated on the membership forms. The member ship form can be obtained on the web site and we will also be accepting memberships on the day of the tournament so if you haven’t already please bring a check to the tournament and sign up for 2015.

Congratulations to all as it appeared that pace of play was at an acceptable level and there were no groups tagged as the “Slowest Group”.

50-50 raffle winner: Lou Silva

Your TC,
Tony Paniagua
