AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE HANDICAP CHAIRMAN!

Dear Members,

I have spoken with Norman Tavares about consolidating the Belmont database with the BGA.
Apparently there is going to be a Major upgrade of the Handicomp software later this year, and for the time being Norman would prefer to leave things as they are.
Hence, if Belmont members have moved, or were already Members of the BGA, they MAY have TWO BGA 7-digit numbers as well as the Belmont home PC (at Upstairs Golf Shop).

In order to establish the 7-digit number to use, I suggest the individual visits the

THE BGA WEB SITE
to determine which is the MOST recent, AND realistic handicap index that suits their standard of play at the present time.

A prime example of this anomaly came to light today, with the individual having two BGA No's. The BGA/ BGA No. gave an Index of 27.3, last postings were in 2000, the Belmont/ BGA No. gave an index of 33.2 (approx.) the last postings were Dec 2001, much closer to reality. No postings have been made recently for this individual because of the confusion.

Once the 'correct' BGA No. has been established, THAT is the number to be used at other courses, posting into the PC as a 'GUEST' and using THAT number. The other 'incorrect' number should be removed, either from the BGA's base, OR, from the Belmont's base. The 5-digit number for Belmont Members should only be used at the Upstairs Golf Shop.

Belmont Members should be reminded that, IF they want the Belmont committee to maintain the individual's Membership at Belmont, AND the Maintenance of their Handicap,
they MUST forward $25.00 (PER INDIVIDUAL) to the Belmont Committee (15.00 for Handicomp, 10.00 for 'nominal' Belmont Membership).

THOSE individuals who do NOT forward the $25.00, WILL BE REMOVED from the Belmont handicap listings. This is to avoid paying $15.00 per head to Handicomp for an individual that doesn't NEED us to keep their handicap current, because it is being maintained by the BGA, or Riddell's Bay G.C., or BJGA (Who ALSO pay $15.00 per head !!!!!!!!!!!!!!) We need an Address for the Belmont Golf Club !!!

Regards,

Ken Elkins.

--------------------------------------------------


IN ORDER FOR OCEAN VIEW TO JUSTIFY GIVING US THE COURSE FOR AN 8.00 AM SHOTGUN START, THEY REQUIRE US TO FIELD OUR FULL QUOTA OF 60 PLAYERS.

WE WISH TO INVITE ANY LADY MEMBERS WHO WOULD LIKE TO PLAY ON SUNDAY TO CONTACT MR GEORGE CORDAY.

PLEASE TRY AND GET AS MANY OF THE BELMONT MEMBERS TO COME OUT AND PLAY ON SUNDAY, OTHERWISE WE MAY LOSE ALTOGETHER OUT IN FUTURE WEEKS.


--------------------------------------------------

ST. GEORGES G.C HAS DECIDED THAT THEY WILL NOW RESTRICT OUR TOURNAMENTS TO A MAXIMUM OF 60 PLAYERS! JUDGING FROM OUR TURNOUT FOR THE FIRST ST.GEORGES TOURNAMENT THIS IS NOT GOING TO BE A PROBLEM.

--------------------------------------------------

ALLAN DOUGLAS HAS BEEN KIND ENOUGH TO ALLOW KEN ELKINS, OUR HANDICAP CHAIRMAN, TO SET UP A HANDICOMP COMPUTER TERMINAL AT HIS UPSTAIRS GOLF & TENNIS SHOP.
BELMONT MEMBERS WILL BE ABLE TO USE THEIR 5 DIGIT BELMONT NUMBER TO ACCESS AND ENTER SCORES.
OTHER PLAYERS CAN USE THE COMPUTER USING THEIR 7 DIGIT BGA NUMBER.

MANY THANKS TO KEN AND ALLAN, THIS WILL MAKE IT ALOT EASIER FOR EVERYONE TO KEEP THEIR HANDICAPS CURRENT.


-----------------------------------------------

APPLICATION FORMS ARE AVAILABLE AT OCEAN VIEW GOLF CLUB FOR BELMONT MEMBERS TO TAKE OUT TEMPORARY MEMBERSHIP. UNTIL APRIL 1ST THE RATE IS $130 PLUS $40 FOR THE CLUB, THIS ALLOWS ENTRY INTO ALL OCEAN VIEW TOURNAMENTS.
PLEASE CALL OR VISIT OCEAN VIEW FOR MORE DETAILS.

--------------------------------------------------

THE COMMITTEE HAS DECIDED NOT TO TRY AND SECURE THE AFTERNOON TEE TIMES AVAILABLE AT RIDDELL'S BAY G.C UNTIL AFTER APRIL WHEN DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TAKES EFFECT.
UNTIL WE HAVE SUFFICIENT DAYLIGHT TO COMPLETE TOURNAMENT PLAY FOR AT LEAST 6 TO 10 GROUPS IT DOESNT MAKE MUCH SENSE TRYING TO ORGANIZE ANYTHING.
