Point Tournament Notes

Gentlemen:

This past weekend we had the weather-challenged Point Tournament. We had 22 members brave the rain and of the 22, 15 cards were scored. Due to the extremely small size of the field, there will only be one flight and the additional money will be moved to an event at a later date.


Now, that being said, all is not well with the scoring by the membership. Should this keep up, I may have a new blog called “Tommy’s DQ Corner” and expose those who are having issues… just kidding… maybe. Anyway, this weeks DQ’s include:

1. Completed card and correct math, dated, named, signed and attested by a “question mark”. Seriously?

2. Completed card with no date, tournament name, no signature and no attest.

3. Completed card attested by player named with no name of scorer, no date and no tournament name.


I see many of you come in and complete a second card after the round. This is appreciated as they tend to be very neat but you have to remember to have it signed and dated.

The next 3 weeks is the President’s Cup. Hopefully this is an easy one as you add up your score, apply your handicap and submit your net. Sign and double check your math. Don’t forget to sign up on the date you play. Need 2 rounds over a 3 week period. Do not sign up 3 times please.

Finally, any new member who has a “trend” can use that for our tournament purposes.

That is all…
Tom Terzakis

Pick Own 2-Man Notes

Gentlemen:

Weather permitting, this week is the Point Tournament. This is a day-of-play sign up. Please review the scorecard posted by the sign up sheet and follow this template. Please submit scorecards in the slot underneath the sign up sheet.


Notes from Week 1 – Pick Your Own 2-Man Team:

1. The potential overall 1st flight winner incorrectly scored a hole thus submitted a card with an incorrect score. This card was a net 59 which should have been a 60 which would have won the first flight. DQ

2. To Ray, Ed, Bill and Cesar- without last names I am at a loss. DQ

3. To the couple of cards with handicaps and no dots or slashes (* or /) on handicap holes. I am not going to complete your cards for you. DQ

4. To the cards with no scores added up. I am not going to complete your cards for you. DQ


This is not a difficult process to follow the template and add your card.

Finally, the note of mark, lift, clean and replace was vague and we will try to do better to inform you of playing conditions.

Thank you,
Tom Terzakis

Hole-In-One Insurance

New Hole-In-One Insurance payments are now being accepted for the 2019 golf season. Please check the posted list. If your name is already on the list, please do not make a second payment. The $5.00 payment is not an annual fee. Your payment, even if from last year, is good until the next qualifying hole-in-one is scored. Upon a new hole-in-one being scored, a new collection and list will be started.

Please place your $5.00 payment in an envelope and place it in the MGA drawer next to the computer. On the envelope, write your full name, date of payment and the words Hole-In-One on the front of the envelope.

Payments will be collected by each Friday evening, and an updated list will be posted early Saturday morning.

If you make a payment on Saturday or Sunday mark the time you placed your payment in the MGA drawer. The time is necessary in the event of a weekend hole-in-one. A new updated list will be posted the following week.

The updated hole-in-one insurance list is posted on the MGA bulletin board by the restrooms and on the bulletin board next to the computer. Please do not write your own name on the posted list. The updated hole-in-one insurance list will no longer be posted on the MGA website.

2018 Ryder Cup Team

Dear Members:

I wanted to write and express my gratitude for the opportunity to represent Orange Hills Ryder Cup team as your Captain for the past 4 years. I enjoyed it very much. Sunday was a tough match over at Muni and we were defeated. They were very gracious winners and fine hosts. A lot of fine people over there.

Thank you to the members who came out to cheer us on. Thank you to Marty “Eagle Eye” Powell for taking his time out to act as team photographer again.

Joe “Stumpy Ducks No One” Latella mentioned to me some members were upset the scores were not posted in my letter last week. That was an oversight on my part and I apologize. Here are the numbers.

Gross
Graham Niemi – 152
Dave Kennedy – 155
Dave Smergilio – 157
Gary Rimler – 163

Net
Dan McCloskey – 135
Ed Tayag, Sr. – 139
Rich Hemming – 140
Damian Caldwell – 140
Robert Benedetto – 141
Jim Morevack – 142
Russ Sanders – 142
Ralph Malafronte – 142

Captains picks were JD Donovan & Pepe Rubino. Joe Weber was a replacement for Ralph Malafronte.

Steve Gettings represented the Champion slot in Peter’s absence & Paul Flament was our Senior champ.

I hope this clears this up. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to call me @ (203) 314-5359.

Sincerely,

THE NUGE
