GCAC minutes for Nov. 2017McCall Golf Advisory Meeting Minutes for November 8, 2017 Attendees: Eric McCormick, Paul Stover, Allan Morrison, Kristin Christensen, Rita Bolli-Neal, Lynne Edwards-Swanson Before dealing with the month’s agenda items, Paul said he had a question/concern about on-line surveys. He wanted to know why couples only got to vote once instead of individually? The explanation given was that surveys are sent out to e-mail addresses; therefore, if a couple shares the same address, they will only get the survey once. Allen then broached the subject of shortening some holes for the ladies. He specifically mentioned holes Birch 5 and 6 along with Cedar 7. He proposed moving the ladies’ tees forward to the approximate location of the present yellow tee markers. After some discussion, Allan asked Lynne to get some feedback from Ladies’ Association members and report back to him. Rita said she needed to make some changes to her October minutes. One change was to correct the spelling of Michael Hades to Michael Hayes. The other change was that Eric had purchased two mowers from Whitetail, not just one as stated in the minutes. Rita then moved that we approve the amended minutes. Lynne seconded that motion. The minutes were approved. Eric’s Report: The weather continues to be a problem. The last few greens were covered for winter yesterday. Cross-country skiers have already caused problems by trudging over some greens. The greens now have ropes and signs asking people to stay off. The plan is to keep enough workers this winter to allow Eric and Billy to take some vacation time. Allan’s Report: Thanks to the poor weather, October revenue was down from last year. Total rounds were also down from both 2015 and 2016. Allan challenged the group to think of ways to get more golfers to play Cedar. November’s monthly topic was Review of the Tournament Schedule. Allan gave the group a rundown of dates for 2018 tournaments. Paul made a motion that our group goes on record as supporting Allan’s proposed tournament schedule. Lynne seconded the motion, and the motion passed. Old Business: BessieJo Wagner told the group that the restaurant contract with Michael Burn had been officially signed and executed. He hopes to have the restaurant remodeled and open by Winter Carnival. She also gave us an update/timeline on the hiring of a new City Manager. She said that in early December there will be an open house where the public can meet the finalists. She encouraged members to attend. In January 2018, the new City Manager will be named. She also confirmed that the tee-sign agreement between the City of McCall and the Men’s Association has been signed and approved. New Business: Nothing was scheduled for this month. The next meeting is December 13, 2017, at 4:00 p.m. Meeting was adjourned.
