In addition, the committee led the putters in two holiday songs throughout the luncheon including one with very clever lyrics in acknowledgement of a Tucson Christmas.

Pat came back to the podium to extend a hearty thank you to the wait staff.  In addition she announced that the Secretary’s and Treasurer’s reports were not going to be presented today.

After lunch was served the meeting continued with the announcement that at each place setting was the calendar for 2018 with the Committee Choices with dates of first meetings on the back.  Putters were asked to review their personal calendars and be ready to sign up for the committee of their choice at the Annual Meeting on Friday January 19th.  It was noted that the first meetings for Quail Creek and Putter Sputter will be held in the first two weeks after the Annual Meeting.

NOVEMBER 13, 2017

The November MVLP meeting and luncheon were called to order by Pat Wells, Co-President.  All were welcomed and a big thank you was given to our luncheon hostesses, Sherry Grossman and Bonnie Cook who had placed some special chocolates on the tables today.  Another thank you was offered to Ruth Brazill and Ann Steinsvaag for the lovely fall decorations on the tables. Last but not least an additional thank you was offered to our Chip Starters and Course Set Up crew for a job well done this beautiful fall morning.

We were reminded to sign up for the Christmas Luncheon which is on December 11th as soon as possible. The list is available at the luncheon today.  We need to have either a yes or no response to be able to plan appropriately.  You also have to make a menu selection at the time of sign up.

Pat advised us that we were informed by HOA 1 that the cost of the luncheons will be increasing to $18.00 in 2018.  This is an across-the-board raise in the price for all golf groups.

The free lunch drawing was done next with Betty McGee being the winner.  She was presented with a certificate for the same.

October 9, 2017

The meeting was called to order by Co-President Vicki Strief.  She welcomed all to the great Saddlebrooke outdoors as the group assembled on the patio of the Roadrunner Grill.  After wishing all a Happy Columbus Day and Happy Indigenous Peoples Day, in staying neutral she quoted Mr. Rogers by “welcoming everyone to the neighborhood”.  She stated it was good to see some of the Snowbirds have already returned and especially that our Past President Kim Halper was in attendance.  She acknowledged that all are looking forward to the resumption of putting next Monday the 16th at our winter hours of 9:30.

Vicki announced that the existing Pro Shop is being remodeled into a meeting room and is temporarily moved to the old exercise room.  Access will be by the exterior door only off the parking lot.  All of our supplies will be housed there and prior to October 16th it will be confirmed that they are available for our use as they should be.

A big Thank You was extended to Sherry Grossman and Bonnie Cook, our Luncheon Hostesses, for the yummy candy found on all the tables and to Ruth Brazill and Ann Steinsvaag for the lovely table decorations.

It was announced that Sandy Bulakowski needs a partner for the Putter Partners event and to see Pat Wells if you can fill in.

Further announcements were made as follows:

–  Remember that during our winter months, the doors to the Dining Room open at 11:30, the meeting at 12:00 and lunch served at 12:15.  Special event attire will be black slacks with our pink shirts and jackets.

–  The opening of the golf course has been postponed by one day to October 11th.

–  Board Member, Joyce Morrison, will be moving out of state soon and is resigning from the board.  She will assist as she can making an easy transition to the new Board Member taking her place.

–  Roberta Wisniewski announced that today is the last day to get checks in for the Putter Partner Event.  She reviewed the particulars and reminded all that the information is available on the website.

The meeting continued with the reading of the October Birthdays and Happy Birthday was sung.  The winner of the Birthday gift card was Lisa Jensema.

Next up was the drawing for that elusive “Free Lunch” everyone is always looking for and the lucky winner was Maralyn Shirk (again).

Continuing with the meeting the September’s Treasurer’s Report was read by Joanne Neuman.

The Minutes of the September Luncheon Meeting were read by Ann Cristofani.

The BBQ’d hamburger buffet lunch was then served.

After lunch, Vicki called on Sandy Strack to give an overview of the meeting she, Vicki and Gay attended with golf course management.

–  A target date of January 1, 2018 has been set for transition, but all necessary contracts have not yet been signed.  A Pro has been selected, but formal job offers cannot yet be made.  There will be several new people hired and training will be needed, so patience will be required as things get up and running.

–  Since no new merchandise is being stocked at the Pro Shops it is suggested that all MVLP’s use their Winner’s Cards (or funds on deposit) as soon as possible at either Mountain View or the Preserve.  They will possibly take special orders however if they do not have size, etc. in stock.  Be sure to check if you have any funds remaining in your “house account”.  All funds must be used by 12-31-17.

–  MVLP will not be charged any Green’s Fees for the rest of the year.  We will continue to issue Prizes, but they will be able to be used for food and will not be restricted to just the Pro Shop.  Going forward, when the HOA owns the golf courses, prizes will be able to be used all around the community.

–  The money already budgeted for Green’s Fees will go back to the membership through gift cards or door prizes at the Holiday Luncheon.

–  The new Pro Shop will be smaller and built on the lawn by the Mesquite Grill. Not sure at this time how our supplies will be stored or where the Black Box will be permanently placed.

–  Have asked again about cutting 18 holes and advised this will be up to the new Pro.

Next on the agenda was the presentation of the slate of officers for the 2018 Board.  The nominating committee of Sandy Cavendar and Ann Hamm were thanked for their great work this year.  The following ladies were asked to stand as their names were called:

Vicki then asked Jeannie Hepner to step to the podium and she arrived wearing a hat decorated with many well-known items.  The group was asked if they could figure out what the items represented and Roberta Wisniewski correctly guessed the items were School Supplies.  Jeannie went on to explain how each year MVLP donate funds to the San Manuel School District for much needed supplies and she wanted to bring this worthwhile cause to everyone’s attention.  Donations can be put in the yellow box that is available at Monday putting and at luncheons.  She then modeled her special hat throughout the room and was surprised and pleased when many dollar bills were tucked into the head band.

MVLP ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING
JANUARY 14, 2016

Prior to the start of the meeting, all new putters were given an orientation by the new incoming Co-Vice President, Vicki Strief. The new members then proceeded to the sign-up tables and signed up for a committee or assignment for the new year.

When the doors to the ballroom opened the returning putters went to the sign-up tables to sign up for a committee or assignment for the new year.

The annual MVLP Annual Membership Meeting was called to order by 2015 President Stef Modos.

Stef introduced Tom Cunningham, MV Golf Greens Supervisor who reviewed the changes made last year to the putting green and addressed the issue of only 9 cut holes. He is hoping he will be able to have 18 holes cut by the end of February or the first of March. In addition he stated that although the course will be closed several times during the summer for maintenance, he will endeavor to keep the putting green open and available to MVLP. He also stated that he will try to get the green cleaned up before the weekly putting sessions, but due to weather this is not always possible.

Stef continued her remarks about the odd year 2015 was with the closure of the course. She next recognized the members of the 2015 Board that were leaving and thanked them for their hard work and participation. She then introduced the new incoming President, Cathy Scott. They exchanged pins and Cathy took over at the podium.

Cathy thanked Stef for all her handwork and characterized her by using each letter of her first name (Stefanie) to describe her many attributes. Stef was then presented with a gift bag from the putters and reminded that she pays no dues in 2016 as another way to thank her for her service.

Cathy then introduced the 2016 Board. Those in attendance stood and were recognized. She went on to discuss the committee sign-ups and the need to have people participate especially on the special event committees. She reviewed the 2016 calendar, which everyone received a copy of and noted some special events and changes that will be happening during the year. She asked that in February all Putters wear their pink putter shirts to the Founders Day Luncheon.

The following additional information was reviewed by Cathy:
Dress code must adhere to golf course standards
Fall and winter attire for special events is pink putter shirt, black pants and in the spring and summer, white pants instead of black.
You must putt at least 3 times in any given month to be eligible for an award
Be sure to look at the website for putting status every Monday incase of a weather delay or cancellation.
Make sure your computer will accept the NewsBlasts as a lot of communication is done through this type of email
As of February 1st the bumpers will count as Holes-in-One for awards, but the Money Hole must be a regular cut hole. The team must be sure that the putter’s ball hits the bumper with a change in course and noise to confirm that it hit.

Winner and committee cards previously announced were then passed out to all present.

Tickets were drawn for door prizes for some lucky returning putters in attendance.

Cathy then adjourned the meeting.
