VP Trish: National Golf Survey

Thank you to those of you who took the time to fill out the golf survey. Your input is needed and appreciated. The results are very encouraging! The upcoming National Golf Tournament should be another great time full of fun, sunshine and camaraderie!

The Tournament is being hosted by Nest 610, Erie, Pa. on August 12 & 13. Those of you who prefer a Friday/Saturday as opposed to a Thursday/Friday, we hear you and we understand. This is something that will depend on the host. If the Tournament was being held in my area, there would be no problem. However, that is not the case everywhere. But we hear you and we are trying. The golf courses are only willing to be so accommodating.

There were comments regarding the format of the event. Again, I hear you. At this time, the two-person scramble and the one-day individual tournament pleases most; it seems like a good compromise. As a golfer, I do not enjoy a scramble and think they take more time (There is a meeting on every shot!). Some golfers do enjoy them so we have a scramble on one day. There are other golfers who share my opinion and are not interested in changing to a scramble both days. What might be interesting is a “bloodsome scramble” which is rarely used!

I am meeting with the Members of Nest 610 early next week. Following our meeting, the information regarding the Tournament will be given to Courtney (which she obviously will post). The hotels, courses, cost, evening festivities and other information will be available. More details about the Hammer will also be shared. (I will be sure to ask the Nest 610 Committee if they need help with a DJ!)

Seasoned golfers as well as a few rookies will be participating this year! I am looking forward to seeing all of you! If you have any questions, please contact me vptrish@polishfalcons.org.

Keep safe; wash those hands; get your vaccine!

Czolem!

VP Trish: Nest 972 Awards

It gives me great pleasure to share that Nest 972, Bay City, Mich., presented their first award to Kenneth J. Grzegorczyk. Druh Ken received the Bronze Star of Merit. Nest 972 is a fairly new Nest (2003). They had not presented any awards at all in the past. Nest President, Terry Dora, felt it fitting that Druh Ken be the first. Ken holds the positions of Nest Recording Secretary as well as Nest Financial Secretary. Nest 972 is very active within their community. This is quite an honor for Ken and the Nest. My hope is that the Nest will continue to participate in the awards program. Maybe we can get a few Nest 972 Members to the Golf or Bowling Tournaments???

Those of you active within your Nest or who read our email newsletter know about the work that has been done regarding the Legion of Honor and Star of Merit awards program. My first project last year was to create a spreadsheet for all the Nests (even those who have been dissolved or merged). Lists have been sent to all the Nest Vice Presidents and Presidents. Information regarding the awards program was sent to the few Nests who have not participated.

Thank you to all the Nests who do participate. Those who work hard for the good of the Polish Falcons deserve to be acknowledged and recognized. If you have any questions with our program, please contact me. If any Nest would like to send photos of your awards presentations (or any Nest functions for that matter), please do so. We would love to share them with our other Members.

Our Members (who we have an email address for) were sent a survey regarding the upcoming National Golf Tournament to be hosted by Nest 610, Erie, Pa. Our hope is that the golfers will respond and perhaps this survey will introduce a few Members to our adult tournaments.

Wishing for healing for our Members who are struggling with COVID-19 or any other issue. Please keep safe and wash those hands!
