Another season has come and gone. I want to congratulate Our 2009 Club Champion “Andy
Parker”; he was waiting a long time for this. And congratulations to all the other flight
Champions, in the “A” flight “Eric Ramirez”, “B” flight “Albert Gonzalez”, “C” flight “Mark
Porter” and in the “D” flight “Jim Lacasse”. Way to go guys, you are our Champions, and as our
Champions for the 2009 season you will represent our club in the PLGA Champion of
Champions tournament. This event usually was held in December, but for some reason it will be
held in January 2010. I have not received the application yet and as soon as I do I will let you
know when and were. Remember the club will pay your way if you play at this event, if you do
not show up with out us knowing you can’t play then you will refund the club the tournament
fee. So be sure to let us know if you will or will not be there.

The Trophy presentation was going to be held at the Beat the Champion tournament in
November. However the Katska Match Play tournament has not yet been decided. Thanks Guys,
this was suppose to be finished by now. So it looks like the Trophy event will be held at the
Member Guest event in December. I am okay with this but there is no reason the Katska should
have taken so long. Be at the October meeting so we can work out the schedule for next year and
discuss other important issues that face our club. We need you to also get your 2010 renewal
applications in this month. All 2010 applications need to be turned in to PLGA before December,
so do not wait until the last minute guys.

Our newsletter has become electronic and website-oriented and since not all of our members are
up to date yet. I ask you to please call all the members you know to let them know to be at the

Our next club meeting is on October 13th at 6:30 pm. Fairways, greens and a few birdies.

Katska Update: Still waiting for a few matches. Chavez just won his match monday 9/28 and
will be playing his next match with Dave Ortiz on monday October 5th. The winner of that
match will play Rick Vasquez for the division. Tony Delgadillo will play Victor Garza the week
of October 5th to determine the winner of that division. The championship will be decided by the
end of October.

My report is short. Out of respect for Yom Kippur, GAC's September meeting was postponed
until Monday, October 5. I will post any new news, if any, after that date.

Recreation and Parks (RAP) is still reeling from their defeat over the golf carts. They can attest
to apparent fact that the RFP process is dysfunctional. I plan to attend the next RAP Board
meeting and push for an immediate 3 year deal with Kishi and new carts. I will advise them to
provide for an early cancellation and no compensation for carts after the end of three years. We
all should be advised that barring massive cash infusions from the Federal or State government,
Los Angeles will be broke before the beginning of the 2010/2011 fiscal year. Golf is a profit
center, but the greater the golf profits, the larger the bite will be taken by the Mayor and/or City

With only the Katska left to be decided, the player of the year race looks like this:

                          PLAYER                                             POINTS
Eric Ramirez                                                   4.5
Mark Porter                                                    4
Jim LaCasse                                                    4
Andy Parker                                                    3.5
Mike Gelbrecht                                                 3
Rick Vasquez                                                   2.5
Doug Baillie                                                   2.5

If Rick Vasquez wins the Katska, he will tie Eric Ramirez and we will go to the tie-breaker. If
not, Eric is the2009 Player of the Year.

TREASURER’S REPORT—Ted Winship, Treasurer Pro Tem
The happy news is that we are again solvent. Preident Paul Andrews and the Board applied
Draconian cuts to the expenses and with the institution of the "Golden Circle", we can close out
the year in the black. Darrell and Tanjya have up-dated the tournament results and monies are
deposited in our account within hours of each tournament. Club obligations to the Pro Shop are
still one tournament behind, but after the next Club meeting, we'll have that up to date. Your
patience is appreciated.

PUBLINKS—Wayne Petty, PLGA Rep. Ted Winship, Pro Tem

The meeting was adjourned at 7:10 PM and was followed by a private board meeting. Thank
you to the bar owner, Mr. Lee and thanks always to Lynn and or Allison for thier hard work
serving the members.

MGA REPORT, Paul Andrews
We split the match with Rancho Park and we are still two points out of first place with one match
left in the season. Sepulveda Men’s won both matches and are ½ point out of first. If either team
wins two points in October they are the champions. As for our chances we need to win both
points and need Rancho and Sepulveda to loose both points. With this we will tie Rancho and
since we did win the head to head matches against them this year three to one, we will win the
Championship. To do our part we must win two points against Griffith Park.

The money winners in September were, Louie R Rivera shot low net of 63 for $12.00 and also
got 6 points. The other 6-point winners for $20.00 each were George Villarreal, Mark Porter, Jim
Sabbe and Tim Sower. Mr. Match-Play 2009 official standings, Mark Porter 4.1, John Mazor and
Gil Camarillo are tied 4.0, Mike Lacasse 3.5 and Tim Sower with a 3.75 and Louie R Rivera has
one match left to make the qualifying five matches’ with 4.0. This is a very close race.

I want to thank our first time MGA Team Play Honoree Player of the Year, George Villarreal.
You came out late in the season but your participation inspired us and fell just one game short to
qualify for Mr. Match Play; your point average to date is a 5.0. You gave up some very
important time of yours to help our team this year and in behalf of all the team members, Thank
you. So George, next year be there for five matches or more and inspire our team again as you
did this year and maybe you will win Mr. Match Play. LOL

The preliminary roster for the October 15th team is below. The first six are in the top positions
for Mr. Match Play. The rest of you are the other best players on the team. This is an important
match and we need our best in October to play against Griffith Park, at Woodley Lakes Golf
Course 9:30 AM be there by 9:00.
                                ROSTER FOR October 15,2009
John Mazor, Gil Camarillo, Mark Porter, Mike Lacasse, Tim Sower, Louie R. Rivera, Tom

What a great 2009 Season we had. Despite the fires, with the water drops and the smoke, we
missed out on the Snow/Hail of previous years so far, and it’s been a great Tournament Season.

We’d like to congratulate the Club Champions again –

                 Club Champion:     Andy Parker
                 A Flight    :      Eric Ramirez
                 B Flight    :      Albert Gonzalez
                 C Flight    :      Mark Porter
                 D Flight    :      Jim LaCasse

We are currently extremely busy, working with F.J and Adam to put together the year end results
– and waiting for the Katska to finish up so we can get those results in as well.

We’re also putting together the Schedule for next year’s Tournaments. Below is our Tentative
Home Schedule. Suggestions are being asked for with regards to Away Touranments – we’d
like to schedule at least three Away Tournaments. So – if you have some course(s) you would
like to see us travel to – please send us your requests.
