President’s Message Spring 2022

Welcome back to ALL members of the MVGCSA! We will be kicking off the Event Calendar this year with our Spring Opening Event hosted by John Briggs and Fox Run Golf Club in just a few weeks. Chuck Gast will be sending you all an invitation shortly, please sign up quickly as this event will be well attended and space is limited.

You will all notice as you sign up for our first event that our Website, has been completely renovated. We hope the new format will be easier to navigate and allow for an improved member experience on the web. I would like to extend a quick apology to everyone for our lack of communication, since the Conference and Trade Show in San Diego. Most of you are aware that our website was hacked just days before the National. Since then, we have been working with Spencer Web Design, our new web designer in an effort to get the website back up and running while improving several aspects of our website and allow for better functionality. Obviously, while this was taking place, we were left without the ability to communicate with of you. BUT…Just like spring and another golf season we are back up and running, and very much appreciate all of your patience during the construction phase of our website. Once again, my apologies and appreciation for your patience.

We have a great list of events scheduled for 2022 and are excited to get everyone together again this season. I know your time is valuable so I won’t keep you much longer, but a few thank-yous are in order. A big thanks to all of our Affiliate sponsors for again showing your support for our association this year, thank you! To all of our members, thank you all for continuing to be involved. We have an amazing group of humans in The Valley and it is an honor to be a small part of it. Please, if anyone has interest in being on a Committee, becoming a member of the Board, or writing an article for the Gateway Green, please contact me, or any Board member, we will be happy to help in anyway. Finally, the biggest thank you goes out to Chuck Gast! Chuck spends a lot of time behind the scenes ensuring we are able to enjoy our golf events, educational seminars, website and usually a cold one. Thank you Chuck for all you do to help keep The Valley dedicated to better turf!

Cheers to a great season everyone and hope to see you all in the coming weeks!!
