VP Trish: Golf Update

As I write this (Friday evening), I am thinking that next week at this time, the golf will be complete, all the prizes awarded, all the meals consumed! But we will still be enjoying the camaraderie of a Falcon event. Hopefully, we’ll be a bit sunburned!

Greg Wieser told me that Erie has been experiencing more rain than usual this summer. The forecast currently is calling for warm temperatures with scattered storms next week, although there is plenty of time for that to change.

Please consider bringing your umbrella and rain gear. Nothing keeps the clouds away more than being prepared!

An email was sent to all the golfers (there were a few of you who had friends/family emails listed) with the information that Greg has shared regarding the tournament. All of that information is in the blog from this past Wednesday. If you are golfing in the Hammer Open, your tee time was included. The Hammer is being played at Scenic Heights. Jeff Jalowiecki of Nest 307 is taking care of the Hammer!

We are asking each golfer to bring a backpack to donate to a local center. If you missed that blog, please click here. They will be helping a local community.

As always, if you have any questions, please contact me.

No rain dances please, we want perfect golf weather!

Safe travels, see you in a few!

Czolem!

VP Trish: District Golf Commissioners

When I left the office earlier in the week, I had received all but 30 of the waivers; this is great! Hopefully, the rest will arrive next week. When Jim Cox, Sr. of Nest 307, Southington, CT sent in his waiver, he included a National Golf Tournament rule book from 1977! What a cool surprise, thank you Jim!

Pretty funny how things change. This part amused me in a warped way – The General Chairman and Organization of the Local Committee: Personnel – The National Golf Chairman shall be appointed by the Officers and Directors of the National Headquarters. The membership of the National Committee including a percentage of women on said committee. Said percentage will be determined by the participation in previous years, and shall be appointed by National Headquarters.

Eventually the rule was that each District would elect one female and one male commissioner at their District Convention. Now, each District may have two, but gender does play a part. Earlier this year, the commissioners and I met via Zoom. We will meet a couple times a year to share ideas.

Currently the following are District Golf Commissioners:

  • District I – Ed Ciesla, Nest 946, Hillsborough, NJ
  • District II – Pat Heineman, Nest 45, St. Louis, MO
    Jeff Beilfuss, Nest 907, Cicero, IL
  • District IV – Cheryl Paterni, Nest 8, Pittsburgh, PA
    Steve Lubinski, Nest 146, New Castle, PA
  • District V – Jim Cox, Sr., Nest 307, Southington, CT
  • District VI – Bob Kuzmicz, Nest 80, South Bend, IN
  • District IX – Kristen Baginski, Nest 610, Erie, PA
    Nick Carter, Nest 493, Batavia, NY
  • District XIII – Chuck Johns, Nest 86, Hamtramck, MI

Please pick up a backpack to donate. I have heard from quite a few who have purchased a backpack; this is wonderful!

Am back from the beach next week, so I will be sending an email to all the golfers with necessary information.

Be safe, have fun! Pretty soon!!!

Czolem!
