1) Elvis Report:: The good news was that it was profitable. The bad news is that we’ve got to sell some Elvis discs to realise those profits. In other words … what money was made lies within the left-over plastic and t-shirts. If you want one, please contact either Joey or Grayson. We’ll fix you up with Elvis! Basically, we made around $800 on the tournament. However, we have about $1,200 (retail value) of unsold merchandise. The less than expect attendance for the tournament caused this overage. We expect to use some of these discs as prize packages for future tournaments.
2) Ballard Report: The course was laid out and completed in late June. It seems to be well received and is getting an extraordinary amount of play. Tee signs and a main message boards are under process but we’d like to wait a couple of more month before installing.
3) Veterans Course: Possible improvements were discussed. Fove alternate basket sleeves have been purchased and will be installed on holes #9, #11, #17, #20, & #23. These are basically the “King” locations other than #17 which will be discussed. Concrete pads are to be installed on #3, #4, #5, #13, #14, & #15. Pro pads are being discussed for holes #1, #10, #13, #15, & #18. Tupelo Park and Rec has approved us adding 4 holes in the area past hole #21 by the far lake. This would give Veterans an 18 holes course followed by an optional and loooooong 9 holes course = 27 total holes!
4) Tombigbee Report: The work day of August 5th was not well attended. Joey Ingle and Todd Harrell managed some good work in the heat on holes #1 through #9. Weed-eating throughout the course and additional work is need on #9, #11, & #12. We encourage all players to show an interst in helping maintain the Tombigbee course as the ranger staff has limited time and resouces for many of the normal upkeep tasks!
5) New Albany Course” Zack is having a work day on August 12th. TDGA members are urged to help out if they can!
6) Tupelo Fall Classic: Joey Ingles has been penciled in to TD this tournament. Please contact hin if you can assist.
7) Summer 77 Report: Nice event and needs to be done a regular basis
