Fellow golfers!
Now that we are well into Spring, it’s time to start thinking about golf and this year’s Walker Cup!!

Mark your calendars for this year's event - Friday, August 12th, when we will be back at Trophy Lake Golf & Casting Club for the 2022 Walker Cup Golf Tournament. This is a morning start again, with a 7:30 am Shotgun Start, with the awards banquet immediately following the golf. Those of you that played last year know what a fun track this is!

One thing we are keeping in place from last year is the price of the tournament – with this, you are “All In” – that means no need to worry about the process of stepping from station to station for your Mulligans, Grand Prize Raffle ticket, Putting Contest, etc., no need to pay for anything extra at the course - other than beer (and of course, those extra Grand Prize Raffle Tickets! 😊).

We are also looking for sponsors for this year's event. We are just getting started, so a lot of sponsorship opportunities available - Greens @ $100, Teeboxes @ $150 - $250, and many other options - no reason to hold back on donating to this great cause, raising funds for the George F. Walker Memorial Scholarship program.

If you plan to play, but not sure you have enough players for a team, or if you are a single or twosome - don't let that stop you. I usually have no problem finding spots for everyone that wants to play and can help you fill out your teams. If you have questions about registering your team, and especially if you have any questions about sponsorship opportunities, you can reach me at the number below.

Please feel free to pass this along to anyone else you think might be interested, this tournament is open to anyone/everyone - work colleagues, family and friends!!

Thanks, and I look forward to seeing you out on the course!

Join a Virtual Town Hall on Davis Bacon Act Regulations
May 10th - 1 PM (Pacific)
NSPS will host a virtual town hall this coming Tuesday, May 10 at 4:00 PM EDT regarding the proposed changes to regulations implementing the Davis-Bacon Act, as proposed by the U.S. Department of Labor. These changes would include members of survey crews being classified as “laborers and mechanics” and thus subject to prevailing wage requirements on all Federally funded construction projects. Join John Palatiello and John "JB" Byrd, NSPS Legislative Representatives, as they discuss the proposed changes and answer your questions. Register now! After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. Full information on the proposed changes to the Davis-Bacon Act regulations, including a link to the current NSPS podcast episode with John Palatiello can be found on the NSPS website.

In the Fall of 2021, NGS performed a field campaign in south-central Alaska to obtain geodetic observations that will be used by the Geoid Monitoring Service (GeMS) to validate time-dependent geopotential models (geoid, gravity, deflection of the vertical). The observations collected are critical to GeMS and a time-dependent geoid model in order to evaluate two situations: 1) to assess how much geoid change has occurred since 1964, when the Coast and Geodetic Survey performed a very high-accuracy triangulation, leveling, and gravity survey following the 1964 Alaska Earthquake; and 2) to establish a baseline to measure all subsequent geoid change against in the future.
It's That Time a Year!
