From Jim Murphy:
Gents, The elements conspired against us this past week and the kick-off scramble was cancelled. We are hopeful that Spring weather appears this week and we get a chance to get out there in decent conditions next Saturday. As of this moment, the following have committed to play:
I expect a good turnout so don’t wait till the last minute to sign up. Please let me know by Wednesday night if you plan to play.
It is the first stroke play event, and will be used for qualifying for club season-long competitions….have a good week, Jim

This is to announce that the Woodlawn Golf Tournament scheduled for tomorrow at Pelham Bay has been canceled. Two more members dropped out so we are down to 10 and Jimmy said we’d need 12 to have a tournament. Please inform those you know may not read e-mails regularly. Note, those who were signed up and ready to play can still just show up and play. We have canceled all of the reservations with no problem, and they said there will be plenty of open slots should anyone still want to play. As a last resort, I did try to see if they could switch the tournament to Sunday where it looks to be almost 50 degrees and sunny, but they didn’t have ample spots for us. I am sending this on behalf of Jim who is at work today.
See everyone next week for our first individual tournament on Pelham Bay.
Have a nice weekend!
The weather forecast for next week makes it quite probable that we will be able to have our kick-off 2 man scramle. I will stay in contact with the golf course management and update you with the course status in the middle of the week. Meanwhile, I will take sign-ups for both the Partners Scramble, and the April 4th tournament (8:12, Pelham Bay). Please respond by Wednesday evening the 25th if you wish to play next Saturday…Thanks, Jim
