All agreed on theprice structure.

First bag tags goout by score of monthly, then remainder can be purchased.

Jack had an ideato have a putting contest against the club officers and top players.  We can address this later.

  1. Parking Lot: 

The city metwith Jon, and gave us the plan to pave the parking lot and make changes to someareas of the course.

We need to giveinput on ways to improve the plan they’ve developed.  They want to improve cliff areas of 17, 18, and 19 due toerosion.  Perhaps add a net andmake it an o.b. area.  They’d liketrails added to 17-19 and 25, 26 and top of the world.  Perhaps steps at 27.  We should coordinate work parties forthe days when the city will be working on the course, as there may not be manypeople playing. The cities main concerns are 26, 18, basket around 8, tee of 18and tee of 26.  Work may start inMay.

Other ideas; cyclesome holes closed; could change course to an 18 hole course…  

Steve Hammock andAaron Eisenhower will be at the next meeting, so we can give some feedback.

With the paved parking area, may bea gate and a pay-to-park situation.  Maybe make a yearly parking pass can be available, and workit into a membership fee.

The neighbor’sbiggest complaint to the city is smoking. The neighbors are afraid of a fire burning them out. 

5.  New Business:


Plan to fix up thetee boxes

            Onhole 3 is a partially fallen tree

            Workparty on the 2nd of March – Kevin will come up with a plan

John, Jack, Stanand Marty need to meet to work out the online membership form. 

E-mailcommunication needs to be changed to the club site.  Stan will get e-mail info from Ed and work with me to make adata base.

  Tee sign sponsors:

 Jack will be working on this – contactinformation is on the web site. Stan moved old tee-sign sponsors pay $350, new tee-sign sponsors pay$500, Scott 2nd new prices. Tom suggested sponsors receive Masters Cub players package.  Jack suggested they also receive a clubmembership with a t-shirt.  Stanmoved to order 30 more players packages, Russ 2nd, for tee signsponsers.
