I’ve often thought our ARGG group information systems (email, registration, and website) are too tied up in my hands (Chuck Dugand). I don’t mind, but I’m one of you and I know s!.*+ happens. Do any of you have a secret desire to build your own website? I can get you started, and in the mean time you could act as my ARGG backup. I’d give you access to our systems, and show you how it all works together. Let me know if that interests you. I guarantee this is not rocket science.
Attached are current handicaps. Winners today at High Meadow Ranch were: 1st Olsen, Canning, Walsh & Triplett 92 2nd Dugand, York, Newton & Bleil 95 3rd Pierrel, Blackburn, Wiggens & Van Dinter 96 4th Odunsi, Carr, Ayo-Vaughn & Cook 99 5th Maggard, Townsend, Horvitz & Russell 100

With this website post we’re inaugurating a new way of distributing our pairings. Instead of a direct email we’re post the pairings on the web site and allowing our mailchimp email system to pick up the post and send it out to everyone on its scheduled scan of the website at 8pm. Hopefully this works alright. To get the pairings simply click on the link to the site, and you’ll find the pairings attached to the post…at the end.
For High Meadow Ranch we’ll play our standard two-low net on the front and scramble on the back. AmocoPairings-Master_2017-Ver2.pdf
So far we’ve only got 16 signed up for High Meadow Ranch this next Tuesday. If you do want to play it helps immensely if you sign up early so we can give the club an accurate estimate of the number of players. They need to block off tee times and prepare our lunch. Please sign up now. Thanks.
We use Mailchimp as our mailing list service and have been using them for about 12 years. They are very professional, and reliable. Due to ever tougher spamming laws its getting harder to set up Pairing Coordinators to use them directly as they have in the past, but I think I’ve found a new process that will work. It will look a little different for you though.
I have set up Mailchimp to scan our website (playgolftuesday.com
Our new procedure therefore is to have the Pairing Coordinator post the pairings (and other communications) on the website (they will have a very simple way of doing that)…if they post before 8pm their email will go out that same day. If they post after 8pm, their email will go out in the next cycle.
Your emails therefore will always be at 8pm….I (Chuck) will continue acting as an emergency back up for those times when there are glitches. We’ll try this for a while.
By the way, THIS email was written at 8:54 pm on Tuesday night…you should get this tomorrow night at 8pm.
We had iffy weather at Windrose this past week, but we got 18 holes in and actually had a great day. Next week is Lake Windcrest. Good course, good food, and fine friends. Life doesn’t get much better than that!
Gentlemen: Wonderful weather and great course conditions. Moreover, we played from the most forward tees, which you need to do at this venue. We had a number of new faces and 34 golfers, a big group for a change. There were nine teams with scores ranging from 107 to 126. The big winners were Messsers Terry Baumann, David Walsh, Jim Triplet, and Larry Bernhard. Mr. Mike Holy was closest to the pin on both par 3s and his team also finished second with a 109.
*The Amoco Retiree Golf Group is a pretty loose organization, but it relies heavily upon the willingness of individuals to do one little thing a few times a year. This is the weekly pairings. It’s not complicated, you can get lots of assistance, you get to pick your own team, and you have the pride of knowing how the teams are determined. Real inside info.**We realize that with new golfers to our group there is a natural hesitation to do something new and different, but it helps things run so much smoother. So, raise your hand at the next lunch—Thanks, The Amoco Retiree Golf Group Board of Directors– *
