We will be having a meeting next Wednesday, December 10th at 7:30 PM. We will be meeting upstairs at The Aqueduct on Katonah Avenue. Beyond regular business this will be an opportunity to weigh in on some issues that have come up this year, including
- where and when tournaments should be scheduled for next year

- Should handicap reductions apply to Memorial and President’s Prize
- attracting new members
- handicap rules new members

It took three rounds so a big congratulations to Joe Brown and Donal Maher for their win over Dominick Mulligan and Frank Finnegan in the Partner’s Championship.
Another reminder that the award dinner/dance will be held on Friday, November 14th at the Manhattan Club atop Rosie O’Grady’s (52nd and 7th Ave). That is a Friday night and the doors open at 8:00 PM. Members of the club go free as part of their membership dues. The price for guests is $100. It is always a great evening and we really need people to come and bring a guest or two if you can, perhaps even some potential members.

From Stephen Carey:
Unfortunately Pat Whelan will not be able to go to Myrtle Beach next week due to an untimely death in Ireland. Our best wishes are with Pat. If anyone is interested in filling Pat’s spot on the trip contact Gerry Murphy or Stephen Carey.
On Saturday, Woodlawn will hold its final event of the year. Coincident with the Woodlawn Partners best-ball, we will play a 16 man interclub match against Crown City to determine the winner of the 2014 Links Founders Cup competition.
As there has been uncertainty on how this tournament will be conducted because of the match, I would urge everyone attending to get to the Links well ahead of time. The organizers of the day are Tom Bennett and Damien Sweeney.
ny questions should be directed to them as I will not be playing on Saturday. Anticipate that you may not be paired with your partner, and there will be a lot of scorecards to be sorted out at the end of play. I ask that you make an extra effort to keep a neat, legible scorecard. The standard of recording scores has fallen to a new low this year. There are many inaccurate, incomplete, illegible and unsigned cards submitted each tournament, and that has to change!
As of 6 PM Thursday, the following have either informed Tom Bennett or me that they are playing:
Scales and 2 guests
If you signed up and somehow are not on this list get back to me. Or if you haven’t signed up and might want to play, you have until 11 AM Friday morning to get back to me.
