TREASURER’S/MEMBERSHIP REPORT (Linda Braren) 
 We now have 76 Regular members. 

Mary Zant and Joyce Nagatani volunteered to be a “buddy” to new members. Please let Linda know if you’d like to help out with new members. As a reminder: “Our club would like to match our new members with an established member as golf buddies. Please let Linda know if you are interested in being a golf buddy. As a golf buddy, you would play a round with a new member, be sure they get introductions to other members, and be available to answer questions about our Club.” 

WEEKLY TOURNAMENT (Barbara Negrete) 
Low net winner for October is Jennifer Tran: 65! Great job. 
9-holers will begin their tee time at 9:15. Trial run. We need feedback from them on how this works out. Also, we are only allowed 10 tee times each week. First come, first served. Trying to get more tee times at the beginning of the year but this does not look promising. 

“Birthday, Most Improved, and possibly other certificates for Meadowlark cannot be redeemed during Ladies Day. Please read the paragraph on the certificate: “This Certificate must be redeemed in full. This certificate has no cashvalue, cannot be redeemed during tournament, club or league play and cannot be exchanged or substituted for other items.” So, to use it, you must come and play on a different day than Ladies Day.” 

Some of you have had problems using the gift cards. See Derek in order for him to verify your gift card. 

Don’t forget to “feed the pig.” 

PLEASE ENSURE FRONT AND BACK OF CARDS MATCH EACH OTHER. 
Ensure your “putts” are on the backside of the game cards in case you don’t get them in the putt book. 

MONTHLY TOURNAMENT (Debbie Dakouzlian) 
This was the annual Breast Cancer Angels tournament. What a great response. $3,595 raised. Awesome job by all. 

Sign up sheet at the meeting for November 17 monthly tournament. Details will be sent by email. A “turkey shootout” maybe?
