News of Interest

Annual Cookie Collection:    It’s that time of the year when our putters bake their delicious homemade cookies for the MV and Preserve Golf Course Maintenance Crew.  It is our way of saying that we appreciate the work they do for us each Monday morning on our putting green.  The cookies should be dropped off at Connie Plapinger’s home at 62265 E. Sand Crest on Wednesday, December 13 and Thursday, December 14.  If Connie is not home when you deliver your cookies on either of those days, there will be a table outside her entry on which you can leave them.  Each crew member will get a mixed selection box they can bring home for their families to enjoy.  

Please note that there will be no putting on Christmas Day.  The Board wishes to express our heartfelt best wishes for your holiday and hope you will enjoy this time with family and friends.  

January luncheon:  It will be held at HOA2 in the Mountain View Ballroom due to conflicting schedules at HOA1.  The cost for this luncheon is $17.00 so please have your check in by January 1 by 2:00 p.m.  Lunch being served will be a cup of Tortilla Soup and half sandwich of Ham and Swiss Cheese on a Croissant with chips on the side, and brownie for dessert.

 Annual Registration Meeting:  This is a very important meeting for all putters, new and returning, as it helps us prepare for the new year.  Please invite any new neighbors or friends to join us as we are open to ladies who are residents or renters in SaddleBrooke.  It is held on Friday, January 19, in the MV Ballroom.  We ask new members to come at 8:30 a.m. for a short orientation, and returning members, at 9:00 a.m.   This is the time to pay your annual dues of $70 for the entire year.  Make your check payable to Mountain View Lady Putters or “MVLP”.  Checks only please, no cash is accepted.  Your Annual Registration Form must accompany your check, and the form is available in the Putters’ black box.  If you are ordering a shirt/sweatshirt jacket, or name tag, bring a second check.  It is also the time to sign-up to serve on a committee.  Every putter is expected to participate in at least one committee assignment each year which allows us to continue to have our activities be successful.  We will have signup sheets for each committee so please look at your travel  planning calendars for 2018.  In fact, bring your calendars with you!  To get a head start on deciding which committee  you would like to participate on, go to our Committees web page where there is a definition of the duties.  Signing up for a committee means that you must be able to attend the planning meetings as well as attend the event.  

Winning Cards:  Please redeem any Winnings Cards you might still have as the cards will expire at the end of the month on December 31st.  You will now receive a Gift Card to HOA2 for the Money Hole and multiple Holes-in-One, and they can be redeemed at HOA2 restaurants or Pro Shop.  The cards will be awarded at the monthly luncheon or Monday morning following the luncheon.

Upcoming Events:  For future special events for putters, your check will be your signup.  Just place your check in the black box for the amount of the event and write in the memo of your check the name of the event.  Your check will be held until the day of the event.  You will be called if you are an alternate or haven’t made the cut if there is a lottery…then it will be shredded.  At most the check will be held for around 3 weeks…so it shouldn’t mess up your checking account.

Reminders

Parking:  Please be considerate.   Golf carts PLEASE park in the golf cart parking lot.   If it is full PLEASE double up and use the golf cart lines in the car lot and take one parking space for two carts. Golf carts in the cart lot can double park if you leave the key in the cart so the cart hemmed in can move your cart and get out.

Score Cards:  Please remember to put last names of everyone putting in your group on the score card.  We have many Judys and Sandys etc.  This is especially important when we have a new member or guest in the group.  Anyone who is a  guest should be noted.  Also, please remember to check the total of your score, total and circle the number of holes in one, and initial the scorecard.

Name Tags:  Many are again forgetting their name tags.  PLEASE try to remember to wear it!
