Letter From the President — Andy Waggoner

Dear fellow Simsbury Farms Men’s Club members:

On behalf of your new Board of Directors I want to take this opportunity to wish you and your families a Happy, Healthy, Safe and Prosperous New Year!

The Board and Committees have been busy at work since the Oct. 2016 Members Meeting during which three new Directors were elected — Bob Primmer, Greg Bubnash and Peter Adamowicz. Then in Nov. the Board elected its Officers as noted below and formed five key Committees:

  • Tournements & Handicaps: John Kuzia, Chairman
  • Membership & Communications: Bob Primmer, Chairman
  • Nominating & Scholarship: Ron Patterson, Chairman
  • Rules/Golf Committee: Reggie Zurinskas, John Kuzia & Andy Waggoner
  • Greens & Grounds: Gerry Wetjen, Chairman

In Dec. the Board approved a new non-voting Board position, Director Emeritus, with Reggie Zurinskas filling this role and providing his expertise on Rules of Golf. At this point Gerry Wetjen and Don Lockyear are the only non-board members serving on a Committee – we need and welcome more member volunteers!  If you would like to explore how to get more involved in SFMC, please let us know. We’ll find roles that meet your skills, interests and availability.

John Kuzia and the Tournament Committee, in collaboration with the SF Pro Shop professionals, have put together another robust Tournament Schedule for 2017, with some key changes you’ll want to hear about at the Annual Membership Meeting on March 12, 2017 at 1:00pm at The Maple Tree Café— SAVE THE DATE. You can expect an eVite email in February with more details.

Later this month the 2017 SFMC Application for Membership will be finalized and emailed to you so you’ll have ample time to fill it out and return it with your dues and optional fees.  You can always access SFMC information online at www.simsburyfarmsmensclub.com

I am honored to serve as your President for 2017-18 and look forward to seeing you on March 12th at The Maple Tree to share information, conduct club business and field your questions.

Best regards,

Andy Waggoner, President
