CalifOrnia Cup Coming Up!

 CALIFORNIA CUP

With the EWGA Cup experience under their belt, we have a 12 person team going to the California Cup on October 25 and 26 at the Robinson Ranch in Santa Clarita. We are looking forward to much more pleasant weather than we experienced in Monterey last year, and even better team results!

The 2014 CALIFORNIA CUP Team members are:

Cathy Billmyre                                  Pam Pongratz
Melissa Bright                                  Marie Shannon
Susan Crawford                               Chris Shorkey
Wendy Eagle                                    Lois Spence
Marie Horn                                       Louise Tang
Suzanne LaTour                               Cathy Wright

In addition to competition, the California Cup weekend has also been designed to include activities and golf for non-competitors, and even non-golfers.  Friends and/or family can come to Santa Clarita for the Friday night reception, Saturday and Sunday lunches and casual golf rounds.  There is fun for everyone.  See the Upcoming Events section of the website for the link to register for the events.  We would love to have a big cheering section and friends to celebrate with us.

When you see them, congratulate the EWGA Cup team members who have played and wish the CA Cup players luck!  Better yet, support them by coming up to Santa Clarita and join in the fun play activities!

BENEFITS OF VOLUNTEERING

“Helping others is the way to Higher Individual Well Being”1

There are many benefits to volunteering. Here are some thoughts to ponder …

1)  It is a chance to meet people outside your life patterns.  You can make new friends and contacts and increase your social and relationship skills.

2) Volunteering is enriching for your mind and body.  When you perform good deeds for others and the community, it provides a natural sense of accomplishment and boosts your self-confidence, self-esteem, and life satisfaction.

3)  An opportunity to can advance your career.  You can learn valuable job skills if you want to change or explore an area of interest.  If you want to learn accounting, be or help the Finance & Records Director.  If you want to learn marketing, be or help the Marketing & Sponsorship Director.  If you want to do Event Planning, be or help the Events & Activities Director. Check out some opportunities by seeing our list of Directors and their positions.

4)  It can be fun and fulfilling to your life.  Volunteering is a fun and easy way to explore your interests and passion.

PACE OF PLAY PLEDGE

EWGA San Diego Chapter members are busy women.  Thus, pace of play at our golf events is important.  We ask you to join us in speeding our pace of play by making these simple commitments to pace of play:

1.  We will play "ready golf" unless it is an official Tournament.
2.  We will pick up on a hole when we've reached our maximum strokes (equitable stroke control).
3.  We will move quickly to our ball. When our balls are relatively close, we will drop off our golf cart partner and then go to our ball
4.  We will be prepared (have a provisional ball handy; bring extra clubs when walking to the ball; limit practice swings).

If you have other suggestions to add to the pledge, please share them with education@ewga-sd.org.
