How things should be decided and how things shoud be voted on
C Course/Playing C Course
Mendo Doubles Round
1. How Things should be voted on
It was decided (by a majority vote) that committees should be formed (ex. work day/maintenance committee or handicap committee) and in order for a committee to make a big decision they need 10 people to vote/agree with them. These votes could and should occur at Sunday Tourneys. At our our future meetings a representative from each committee will report on what the committee has been done since the last meeting.
2. Bag Tags/Dues/Revenue
Nate proposed to increase the dues to $40. It was decided that we would have varying player's packages priced at various amounts i.e. $25 for a t-shirt and a disc or $35 for a hoody and disc. Also, the overall consensus was to get new Bag Tags.
Rye Bread gave a run down on the countless hours of examination, mathmatical calculations, and arguing concerning our current handicap system. Nate brought up a good point that the club didn't vote on this change but after learning it is going to benifit him and everyone in the club besides Hems, Jimmer, and David it was agreed upon that we would try this new handicap/averages system. It was also agreed upon that the handicap commitee will consist of: El Presidente (Parkweather), Rye, Hems, Jim, and Davey D.
4. Work Days
The work days/maintenance committee consists of: Hawk, Chris V, Wip?, and Nate. An action plan is for Chris V and/or other members of the maintance committee to talk to College of the Redwoods and Jesse (the Dean) to confirm that we can maintain and/or alter the course.
5. Planter Boxes
This is too controversial to talk about on the world wide web...ask one of the attending members about the planter boxes.
6. C Course
It was voted on and agreed that the MCFC WILL start playing C course using the B course adjusted averages until we get C course averages.
7. Mendo Doubles
It was agreed on that there will be an optional 10am doubles round on every Sunday before the regualr tournament.
Other randomness after the meeting and questions: 1. When will Jimmy talk to Alan Carlson about expanding the Fort Bragg course to 18 holes? 2. We gave a little update on the rules and how the Coast Cup is being run. Some club members wanted to know why Manchester is not being played for the Coast Cup? A lot of pizza, beer, and soda pop was consumed!
If I missed anything please post.
Thanks everyone for coming and Happy Chrismahanikwanzikaa!
