At the last general club meeting, we introduced the idea of committees to handle many of the things the club does on an ongoing basis. We are going to form a number of committees and we want, and need, your help.
The idea is to provide a way for a lot more people to get involved in what we do, and in turn this will allow the club to do so much more. Our events will get better, our courses will get better, and the club will get better.
Below are the committees and a bit about what each will do. Some will be larger than others. Some will have more ongoing stuff, others will have more “bursts” of activity. And of course, all of this will be adjusted as we go along and find out what works and what doesn’t. With Waterloo coming up soon, and Ice Bowl not too far beyond that, there will definitely be plenty for everyone to do.
If you are interested in serving on one or more of these, please email me back. Once we have a good feel for who is interested in what (and we’ll combine these with the responses we got at our meeting plus feedback we got at this year’s Ice Bowl), we will contact you back with more information. If you would like more information on any of this, please feel free to contact the club.
