Jim Wegman, Publicity
Just a reminder that league dues are due April 1 and it would help our treasurer, Bob Deken, if the checks arrived a bit early.
League Events: The Ringers Tournament will take place on three Thursdays, February 25, March 3 and March 10, weather permitting. Look for further details and mark your calendar for the dates.
April 17 is the date for the Hamilton High Boy’s golf team to visit the Niners. David Mork will be the Game Manager and host for the day which will be a fundraiser to support the golf team. Plan to play that day. You may get to play with a future PGA Champion – these young guys are good!
The annual Meeting and Awards Luncheon will take place on Thursday, March 24 after our regular golf game.
Membership: David Mork has recruited a new member, Michael Goodyear. Thanks David and welcome Michael.

Local Rules. Palms Hole No. 8- The walled pump station is played as an immovable obstruction-free stance and swing relief only. The ball is to be dropped at the nearest point to where the ball lay which is not nearer the hole, avoids such intervention, and is not in a hazard or on a putting green.
Lakes Hole No. 3 – As an additional option under Rule 26-1, if a ball when struck comes to rest in the water hazard behind the green, the player may drop a ball, under penalty of one stroke, in the designated ball drop area located behind the green. If a ball comes to rest on the cart path directly behind the green, the player may take relief under Rule 24-2 or take relief using the designated ball drop area located behind the green on the left side.
