The Board has had some changes. Bob Hiller has resigned as VP and game manager; Mike Stegina, our webmaster and game manager, has had to resign due to some health issues; and Lloyd Schaeffer, our treasurer, has stepped in as webmaster and soon to be game manager. Two former game managers have stepped in to assist: David Mork and Bob Deken. We appreciate the efforts of these members.
And, speaking of changes, Lloyd Schaeffer has worked long and hard to develop a new Niners website. Take a few minutes to review the new site and thank Lloyd for his efforts.
Our winter golfers are departing for cooler locations. Travel safely and have a great summer.
