Barefoot Bay Ladies 18 Hole Golf Association

General Membership Meeting

January 17, 2017


President Judy Rice called the meeting to order at 12:21p.m. followed by the pledge of allegiance.


Secretary's Report- Kathy Mello made the motion to accept the minutes from the November 1, 2016 General Membership Meeting as emailed to the membership. Betty Healy seconded. The motion passed.


Treasurer's Report- Beth Gillette reported a budgeted amount of $2,468 for the beginning of 2017. Please refer to the attached Treasurer's Report. There was a discussion about still being able to put in $2 in the Hole-in-One Pot, and also, still being able to join the Ringer Board, that Carol Reynolds is in charge of this year. Betty Healy made a motion to accept the Treasurer's Report and Joan Clement seconded. Motion carried.


Vice President's Report- Roberta Kesslar, also Chairperson for Away Special Events, spoke about her preparations for this year's BFB's Women's 18 Hole League Invitational. Roberta has updated the Invitational Form Letter and is sending it to participating clubs' women's golf associations, inviting their participation. This year's Invitational is called, Mad Hatter's Tea Party, and will be held on March 28. Roberta presented Paula Gerad with a Hole in One Award for 2016.


Director League of Play- Joanne Plasse summarized some new scoring procedures. She will be returning incorrect score cards to a group making

an error. Copies of their scorecard will be emailed to the foursome with a description of the error that was made. This is in an effort to reduce the number of ESC errors. The handicap Chairperson will be entering all players scores on a hole by hole basis, instead of total score. Membership was reminded of a standing rule, and subsequent penalty for playing on League Day and leaving for any reason other than illness or emergency. This standing rule has been in effect since March 2000. There was clarification on when to pick up the ball, when excessive strokes occur. A golfer is to use common sense, and record the most likely score. The player must evaluate, and use her best judgment. By picking up, the golfer is disqualified from winning a money prize for the round. If the hole is not counted in a league game, a golfer could pick up and take their max handicap for that hole. Any members with requests to play with certain golfers or have suggestions for games, Joanne will do her best to accommodate these.


Handicapping Chairperson- Betty Healy had no report.


Special Events Chairperson- Sharlene Coates, CTP Coordinator, reported a balance of $94.00 would be allocated for a bar bill for the Farmer in the Dell players. Gert Finnegan volunteered to cook for this event, and provided the choice of a meat and a meatless selection.


Social Chairperson- Julia Strom asked for suggestions concerning the Holiday party.


Membership Chairperson- Terry Perry reported there are four new members. Jackie Dukes, Elaine Parsons, June Sotir and Pat Saxton will join the 63 members of this year's league.


Sunshine Chairperson- Judy Rice reported that we are supporting our members that have been ill, had accidents in their family and have lost a family member. A card was circulated to sign for Diane Paradis, who has been ill. A card was sent to Kathy Mello, whose brother passed away. Gail Morrison, also received a card for her son-in-law and grand daughter, who were critically injured in a car accident. A GoFundMe site has been established for the family. http://www.gofundme.com/help-sarah-brents-family.


Rules Chairperson- Cookie Shaw explained the answers to three rules questions. Drainage pipes: Ernie has designated these permanent hazards with red lines. All red hazard rules apply; no grounding of club, if unplayable, hit a provisional, one stroke penalty. Gravel paths: Example between holes 17 and 18, take the closest point of relief. Wiping ball on the green: You may wipe off the ball on the green, as long as you are not testing the putting surface.


Golf Committee Chairperson: No report


Presidents Report: Judy Rice reinforced what had already been stated concerning incorrect scoring of cards, and reminded golfers that you do not have to play your ball all the way to the hole on non-team events.


Old Business: Brenda Duke motioned to adopt Article VI Section 1: The elected officers of the Association shall be: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Director of League Play, Handicapping Chairperson, Rules Chairperson, and Social Chairperson. Marilyn Coulbourne seconded.

The motion passed.

New Business: There was discussion about having the Tuesday League CTP Challenge be split between AB and CD players. There was a vote with 25 yea and 18 nays. The yeas had it, and split prize CTP will be in effect during the next league play.

RuthAnn Funari, Secretary
