HGSGA Update - October 17, 2019
As we end the 2019 season, the executive committee is actively preparing for 2020. We are planning a membership meeting in mid November (followed by golf). At this meeting, we will seek input on what you would like to see in 2020. We also will be submitting revisions to our bylaws with the intention of updating them in line with current operations and providing us with more flexibility in recruiting and selecting new leaders. Shortly after the meeting, we will submit a slate of officers for your approval. If you are interested in taking on a leadership role with HGSGA please feel free to email me.
Looks like all of our MISGAs are over for the year. I would like to thank Bill Duncan, Lew Shipp, Ian Sumner, and JIm Wilcox for their efforts with our MISGA program. It truly is a great way to meet new friends and play some fantastic courses. Next Thursday we will be playing regular medal play. Hope you will join us. Mac
Deadline Approaching for HGSGA Banquet
Our Annual Awards Banquet will be held at Union Jack's-Columbia on October 28, 2019 at 5:30 PM. The buffet dinner will feature sliced ribeye, herb roasted chicken, and citrus salmon. Drinks will be handled by cash bar. All HGSGA members will be free and will be allowed to bring one guest for a fee of $20. The Signup Genius for this event is now posted. We are limited to 100 attendees. A total of 92 have already signed up so don't wait - signup now!
For those of you bringing a guest, please pay your $20 by sending it to Nick Girardi at 2904 Evening Dew Drive, Ellicott City, MD 21163. Make checks out to HGSGA. We need for all guests to be pre-paid by October 24th. If for any reason, you have signed up and will not be able to attend, please take your name off the Signup Genius list. This will make room for others to attend and will make sure we don't pay for a dinner that will not be eaten.
Both the Wind and the Wolf Were Howling
Nineteen brave souls played in today's "wolf game" competition. Thirty mile an hour winds played havoc, but everyone who started, persevered to the end. Money winners were as follows:
