NEWS FROM THE BOARD
Membership is down again this year, with this year's count totaling 86, a loss of 20 from last year.
Without the continuing support of paid memberships we can not continue to operate. On behalf of
the board of directors, I want to thank all of those members who continue to support the organization with
your paid up dues. Thank You very much!!
A number of members have stepped up and are seeking a board position, they are: Bill Poniatowski of
Buffalo for Distict I, Quint Davis in District II, John Lindeman and Bob Treicks in District III, Jeff Lee District IV and
James Farmer member at large. This still leaves us with openings on the board of directors, three in District V
(Fremont and Hot Springs counties), and three in District VII (Lincoln, Sublette, and Teton counties). We would
really appreciate getting some representatives from those Districts. So if anyone is interested, they can contact
Dick Atkins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a general rule the board likes to schedule tournaments three years in advance Rochelle Ranch in
Rawlins, will host the 2018 tournament. The Douglas Golf Club is considering a bid for 2019, and Buffallo is
putting together a committee for 2020. Anyone wishing to bring the tournament to their course needs to have the
course manager send a letter requesting the tournament to the Wyoming Senior golfers' Association board of
directors in care of Dick Atkins 2921 Thomas Ave., Cheyenne, Wyoming 82001. If the location does not have a
member on the WSGA board of directors a tournament director will also have to be named. The exact date could
be, but need not be decided on at that time, the exact date will need to be decided by the beginning of the
previous years' tournament. According to the WSGA By-Laws the tournament needs to be flighted by age, any
deviation from that format will have to have prior board approval.
Dues notices for the 2018 season will be sent via e-mail in January. if you don't have an e-mail address you will
still get your dues notice through the regular mail. Please let Dick Atkins know your current e-mail address, or
mailing address. You can reach him by email at email@example.com or regular mail at 2921 Thomes, Ave.
