Well, we’re officially in the Holiday Season, with Thanksgiving now behind us. I hope you all had the celebration you wanted – big, boisterous crowd of friends and family or small, quiet get-together. Just a few more weeks of parties, shopping, and celebrating before we welcome 2017 and a busy season for EWGA Tucson members.
NEW FREQUENT GOLFER PROGRAM!! We recently announced a new program starting December 1 and running through October 31, 2017. We’ll award a $200 gift card to the member who plays in the most EWGA Tucson golf events during this eleven month period. The award will be given at the Annual Business Dinner in November (split in the case of a tie). Can you do it?!
Start now by registering for our Holiday Event at Del Lago Golf Club on December 3. This is always a great time, with golfers donning their best holiday togs for a fun round with lunch and prizes to follow. Guests are welcome.
Just a reminder that Van’s shopping night is December 15. Find all those gift cards you’ve been saving and come out for refreshments and discounts at Van’s Oracle store from 5:30 to 8:00.
We’ve got one more ringer in the fall series at Dell Urich on December 11. For those of us who suffered through a VERY SLOW round two, a few reminders about pace of play:
- One practice swing is plenty when there are people waiting behind you.
- For the ringer, pick up your ball if you scored better on that hole in an earlier round.
- If your set-up routine includes a minute of meditation over the ball before you swing, time to change your set-up routine.
Jacki has set up our winter ringer at Torres Blancas (January 22, February 5, March 5). The 2nd Annual Cowgirl Chic Invitational will be on February 18-19. We’ll announce the venue and details shortly. Theresa is going to organize a winter league at Dorado, probably starting sometime in January. And there's a member-get-a-member event in the works for March. Of course, we'll get match play events on the calendar and pick a date for the Chapter Championship (and practice round) soon too.
One nice benefit of having Jacki back as Events Director is that she’s very involved in AWGA, so will make sure we know about all their events. We’d love to see our participation with AWGA increase this year. She’ll be posting dates and locations for the Medallion soon.
Enjoy the holidays and play more golf!
