Rules Review - current rules vs. rules that will be enacted 2019

that are OB, lost, etc. Included in the discussion was guidance on determining the relief area granted
by the new rule.

Upcoming tournament – The River Club Wed Sep 19, 2018
October’s tournament will be at Mt. Vintage. Ken Brace toured the club and said it
was in great shape.
December’s tournament will be at Gordon Lakes (Fort Gordon). Entry to the course
should easier than in the past.
A ‘lively’ discussion took place addressing our low participation rate and what
needs to be done about it. Points made:
* Move the meetings back to the Grille
* Hold the meetings less frequently
* Conduct a ‘strategy session’ meeting and solicit ideas from the membership.
John Moynihan will carry the discussion / action forward from here.
