Bob inquired if bringing in a “sponsor” would be allowed. Maybe help in increasing entries, providing financial support (increased prizes), tee gifts, etc. Nothing in by-laws appears to prevent this. Further investigation can take place.

Golf Show update. Consensus that it went well. MCPLA had a handout available, listing contact info for each of the clubs. Handout is also posted now at the Currie Golf Dome.
Topic of “dual membership” at MCPLA clubs was brought up. Significant amount of “spirited” discussion ensued. In the end, no further action is necessary at this time by MCPLA. Each individual club can address as they see fit.
New PGA pro at Whitnall, Andrew Gieryn
Glen is stepping down as Secretary at end of 2013, need to find replacement (website is NOT part of the job anymore).
Hello and welcome to this video on the MCPLA Golf web site transition to new format in attempt to address some of the communication concerns during this snowing 1st quarter in 2013.
Some pain points we are trying to address include amount of time to get information published; hard to locate information; one person funnel we are all busy; snail mail just out of date; amount of time to enter information; formatting of information.
The old format of the site worked; it was limited in who can publish information to the site.
With the new format…
All the same information is available; provided the information is shared in a timely manner. This is still the responsibility of various Directors providing the information.
The new format of the site is a “blog” style website; therefore, all the latest information is on the site just like reading your email. The difference is you don’t have to stumble through all your emails to see the information quickly.
