Gentlemen,

A new golf season is upon us. Our first MCPLA meeting will be on February 7, 2017 at 6:30pm at the Currie Park Golf Course. Please notify your club Directors prior to the March meeting.

The Schedule of the 2017 meetings is below. As President it is important that you appoint Directors that will actually go to the meetings. If a Club has no representation at a meetings, it is difficult to communicate the needs of the Club and MCPLA.

First and Second Team Directors should discuss any changes with the Club Captains prior to the February Meeting so any changes can be addressed at that meeting.

I will try and have speakers from the County at most of the meetings.

The meeting dates for the 2017 season are:
  • February 7
  • March 7
  • April 4
  • May 2
  • June 6
  • July 11
  • August 1
  • September 5
  • October 3
If all club rosters are returned in a timely manner I will have a complete package of  information for each club.

Please encourage all Directors to attend and pass on to any New Directors that may not be on our email list as of this date.

Best Regards,
John M. Haeflinger
President
