CAPTAIN YOGI'S USELESS
BUT IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Hello Everybody!

Hope everybody is having a great spring so far, Not! It was 34 freakin' degrees this morning when I got up! This will be a short one because your captain is studying for his finals for the spring semester after a 32 year summer break. But warmer weather is coming and so are a lot of events! 

The Parrot Head Day at Range End on June 10th  with the cornhole tournament in the afternoon and Tropical Soul playing that night is coming together nicely. We will have the info at the May social, so tell all your friends! 

And who can forget the 3rd Annual Jackie Invitational at Rich Valley! You can sign up now, either in person at the meetings or now online! This is a great time and Dennis will be playing in the afternoon with some additional happenings that hopefully will be announced shortly.

I would like to ask everybody's opinion on the social being held at The Cru Deli until the yet to be named Gullifty's replacement is opened or would you like the board to continue the search? Please email me directly with your thoughts.

Pools Open! (In one month)
