Proposal is to change the bylaw by reducing the number of the Nominating Committee from 5 to 3 members with 2 alternates.
“The Nominating Committee will consist of three members. One member and one alternate appointed by the Board, two members and one alternate appointed by the membership.”
This proposal will be voted on at the October General Meeting.

CONGRATULATIONS TO GAIL PLIMPTON!
Wow!! I did it...placed 1st in the 2019 AGA Women's State Senior Amateur Stroke Play Championship Masters Flight ages 75 - 79. I won low net. What a thrill. We played in Sun City West near Scottsdale, AZ. Temperature all three days were at 110 degrees. Lots of gator aid & cold cloths around the neck. I won $90.00 & brought the Trophy home for a year. I need to return it this time next year so I will be playing in the last flight (the legends 80 plus). What a super birthday present I gave myself! Who said 80 is old. Looking forward to celebrating my big birthday on Sept. 25th.
Thanks to all of you who gave me encouragement & support during the past month.
Love. Gail 🏌🏿♀️🏌🏿♀️🍷🍷

HOLE-IN-ONE TRAIN STILL ON THE MOVE
The heat of the summer is building and so are the Holes-In-One. Congratulations to Sally Drennen on her fourth HIO. She aced T6 during the Crazy Par 3 event on June 28th. Just a reminder regarding the Hole-In-One program; it is voluntary and a member may join any time during the year but must have paid before the hole-in-one occurs. The HIO may occur any day of the week; it must be during an 18-hole round of golf played on any of the SB HOA#1 courses. It may be counted on away courses if it is part of any SBWGA-18 sanctioned event. When doesn't a Hole-In-One count?
