TREASURER’S REPORT (Mary Eggert)
Reported Cash on hand.

Tea-for-Two cancelled at Temecula Creek. Mary will investigate other venues.

WEEKLY TOURNAMENT (Barbara Negrete)
Pig is hungry! Feed what you owe. No separate putting scores will be recorded until further notice.

Birdies and chip-ins will still be recorded. Games will commence beginning May  13 as we are now playing 18 holes.

MONTHLY TOURNAMENT (Marian Rocchi)
No monthly tournaments until carts are allowed.

HANDICAP/PUB LINKS (Carol Kofahl)
Report e-mailed to members and attached.
Please post your golf scores within 24 hours of playing.

WPLGA will resume in June. Single players can contact Carol if you need a team. 

SCGA Team Play Dates: Will resume this year when golf carts are available. 4 games home and away. Issue at Meadowlark (and maybe other courses) that carts might not be cleaned thoroughly. Management is addressing this.

RULES
We are following the rules!

UNFINISHED BUSINESS:
Meadowlark staff received donations from members. $300 each to Antonio (little and big); Ruben $300; Steve (bus boy) $350; Melinda $540.
Confirm August 19 member/guest tournament. Enough carts? Participation? Food? Prizes? All need to be worked out if social distancing still in effect.

NEW BUINESS:
Approved temporary rules during COVID-19.

Flagsticks: Meadowlark GC will have flagsticks on each hole with inserts to raise the level of the “holed” golf ball. Players should not touch the flagsticks, but there will be no penalty incurred if a flagstick is touched by accident. If ball that appears “holed” bounces out due to insert, it is “holed.”

Bunkers: There will be no rakes in the bunker. If your ball lands in a bunker, players should play the shot from the bunker and attempt to smooth the disturbed area with a foot or a club. If the ball lands in a disturbed area in the bunker a player may take free relief with one club length within the bunker and dropping the ball from knee height. If no undisturbed area is available, the player may smooth an area within a club length that is no closer to the hole into which they may drop the ball. 

SOCIAL (Jackie Minnis)
May 20 Rodrigo’s: Call your order in morning of May 20 ready for your time of pick up. Carol Smith can take your orders and you pick up between 2-4. Carol to ask if we can get curb side pick up. If you can’t eat, buy a gift card! 

Birthday winner for May, Jerrie Chapin.

Adjournment 5:25 p.m.

Respectfully submitted, Penelope V. Brear, Secretary
