Last month’s editorial quoted the new President, “TJ” Jones, of his intention, “to have more communications to the members and to inspire more camaraderie and increase social functions before, during and after tournaments.” He asked members to pitch in to accomplish the goals and for the continued success of MOGA. He is now asking members to volunteer to be on a call list to assist on special occasions/needs, e.g. tournaments, special events etc. If you can assist please call TJ at 602-909-5406 or e-mail him at [email protected] for details.
