Members – At – Large
The Members-At-Large will be full-time residents of Saddlebrooke and have good general computer skills with a working knowledge of e-mail.

The Members-At-Large will attend all Board meetings.
The duties of the Members-At-Large shall be divided (upon election, the Members-At-Large will meet to decide who will take each responsibility) as follows:
Score Cards: This Member-at-Large will be responsible for retrieving the score sheets from the Statistician preparing them for Monday morning play. She will bring the prepared score cards one week ahead and place them in the Chip Starter bag for use for the following Monday. She will retrieve the completed cards for both sessions keeping them separated by a rubber band. The Chip Starter should give the completed score cards to the Scorer with all the cards in numerical order even if some of the cards were not used and the card is empty. This empty card can be re-dated and re-used for the next session after the tallying has been completed. This will help control the expenses for printing the cards. The Scorer will receive the number of the Money Hole for that day from the President or her substitute for announcements for the first session. The Scorer will then tally the statistics from the completed score cards from both sessions, transferring them to the monthly handicap sheet provided by the Statistician, making sure that they all balance. She will then be responsible for e-mailing the results for that day to the Putter’s Board within 48 hours. The Scorer who has held this job prior to the new Member-at-Large will train her replacement in the scoring system.
Course Set-Up/Take Down/ChipStarters: This Member-At-Large is responsible for contacting each member of the Course Set- up Committee two weeks prior to the assigned month by e-mail/telephone to remind her of her forthcoming duties. She will review with each committee member the procedure to follow for the course set up, including set up and take down, choosing the money hole, location of safety cones and other equipment and changes in responsibilities for special events. If a member cannot serve, she is responsible for finding her own replacement. If she cannot find a replacement, she will notify the Member-at-Large, Course Set-Up who will request a replacement from the Member-at-Large, Committee Assignments.
She will notify the Member-at-Large, Score Cards of which hole is the Money Hole each week (notifies the President/Vice President in the absence of the Score Card Member-at-Large).
She will give the President the list of Set-Up Committee names prior to the beginning of each month for announcements.
She will contact the two members signed up for chip starters prior to the assigned month by e-mail/telephone to remind them of the month they have committed to serve. She will also tell them if they will not be needed because of a special event. If a member cannot serve the member must find a replacement or notify the other chip starter or member at large. The member at large is also responsible for replacing any supplies that the chip starters may need.
Decorations:This Member-At-Large will contact each member to attend an organizational and informational meeting the month preceding the scheduled luncheon. An information sheet will be provided to each member and questions answered. The committee will then proceed to select a chairperson or co-chairs and date when they can meet to start planning for decorating the tables for the monthly luncheon. The number of attendees for each luncheon can be gotten from the Treasurer the Tuesday before the luncheon. The table configuration for the dining room is verified with the clubhouse.
Committee Assignments: This Member-At-Large will be responsible for ensuring that each Putter serves on at least one committee per year. Putters are asked at the organizational meeting at the beginning of each year to sign up for a committee. Putters who have not signed up are contacted by this Member-At-Large and added to a committee. Also, as new members join, they must be placed on a committee. The Member-At-Large will monitor that all committees have an adequate number of Putters to function.
Food and Beverage: The Board member responsible for the Food and Beverage Committee will select three other Board members to serve with her. The Food and Beverage Committee will meet and select menus for the normal monthly luncheons, and work with the restaurant representatives to fit the menus within the budget set for the monthly luncheons. The President should also be advised of any meetings of the Committee so that she can attend if she wishes to. The Committee will make sure that contracts for those menus are ready for the President to sign. The Committee will also work with the restaurant representatives for menus for those members who have special food needs. The Committee will not be responsible for selecting the menus for the special events. The Special Events Committee will select those menus and obtain a contract for the President to sign. The Food and Beverage Committee picks out all the luncheon menus for the year and e-mails a copy of the selections to the Board. The prior Food and Beverage Committee will have selected menus from March of the current year through February of the following year. The Committee should meet early in the year to make those selections so that they can be put on the web site. This will also help the Special Events Committee select their menus so that they don’t conflict with the regular monthly luncheons. Each member of the Food and Beverage Committee will take turns being hostess for the luncheons making sure the correct menu items were served and also check with the membership attending for their feedback.
