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– *

We need Pairings Coordinators! Sign up here. Being a Pairings Coordinator is an amazing experience. Your friends will admire you, and the power you will have to set the course of events for a month will make your family proud of who you are, and what you’ve achieved in life. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by!
We have about 30 people in our group that play relatively often, yet only a handful that chip in and do some of the work necessary to keep us going. That’s actually not unusual for groups like this where no one gets paid and we all volunteer.
Here’s what our schedule looks like for 2017. You might notice a scarcity of names. We could switch to a new format where you just show up (after registering) and we self organize creating pairings on the fly. We can try that for March.

We ended up with 18 golfers and 2 for lunch. Rich Gross joined us for lunch. It was cart path only, but I surprisingly good shape. It was recommended that we play from the front tees next week at Raveneau.
