Thank You for Giving
Lots of great gifts were donated at the Toys for Tots December event and it was a fun afternoon of socializing with very tasty appetizers. This is our Chapter's longest running social event, so let's keep it going and growing.  Thanks to all of you who participated.   
Golf Rules!

If you want to brush up on your golf rules and/or golf etiquette, we recommend the following two documents:  The Simplified Rules of Golf (provided by the MGA) and Golf Etiquette Overview.

                                       
A routine is not a routine if you have to think about it.

EWGA MN Metro Chapter   
IT TAKES A VILLAGE .....TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL CHAPTER!
This is a call to step up and volunteer.  There are several opportunities from a one-time duty to heading an event to being part of a committee. Think about how much fun you had this past year - from TeeOff, to league play, lawn bowling or playing in Chapter Championship.  These all happened because Members stepped up. Is it your turn?
Volunteers needed for:
Golf Show:  Feb 16-18,  (details in this issue )
Social Event Planning:  TeeOff, Chapter Social Events, Year End
Golf Support:   League set-ups, Orientation, Captains.
Chapter Championship:  On-site coordinator, day-of assistants, photographer,
Social Media:   Website, Facebook

Maybe you're hesitant to volunteer because you're unsure about what's involved. Just send an email and say that.  One of the Directors would be happy to call you to talk the need and you can decide how involved you want to be - its free to ask...
Minnesota Golf Show
February 16 - 18

Here is a great volunteer opportunity to share your EWGA experiences with prospective members.  Before or after your shift, you can scout out the show and find deals on clubs and clothes, golf and golf vacations. Talk to your EWGA friends, sign up together and make it an event!
EWGA - The Bigger Picture
We sometimes forget about the bigger picture of belonging to EWGA: the opportunity to meet and golf with Members from other Chapters in locations other than Minnesota.  Ask anyone who's played Semi's, Nationals or The Cup.
