Late Swingers’ Ladies League Regular Meeting Minutes The Late Swingers’ Ladies League regular fall meeting was called to order by League Administrator Aggie Hampton at 5:30 PM, September 25, 2008. Golf Pro Kirk Schooley thanked the members for their support of golf at Juniper Hill and especially for the work for the Governor’s Open Tournament. He encouraged them to continue to enjoy the nice fall days of golf. Aggie thanked her fellow officers and the various committees for their hard work. She reminded the members that there was a lot of work going on behind the scenes that enabled them to enjoy league golf and encouraged them to get involved next year. The minutes of the March 27, 2008, regular spring meeting that have been posted to the Juniper Hill Ladies Golf Alliance Web site were approved by voice vote. Barbara Reynolds reported that her review of the treasurer records kept by Susan Goins found no problems. Copies of the Treasurer’s Report were available to the members at their tables. Karen Pilcher reported on League Night. Audie Rodgers developed a new method of flighting based on the number of members present each Thursday which allows a broader distribution of winners. The following members had perfect attendance: Michele Brown, Tonya Courtney, Mary Ellen Cameron, Donna Grimes, Carol Payton, DebbieSlattery, and Esther Wilhoyte. Points were awarded for wins each week. Mickey Smith had the most points with 20. Renee Thomas and Teresa Prather had 19 and 18 respectively. Shirley Rodgers reported on the Special Events.

The tournament will raise funds for the Frankfort Women’s Shelter. Interested members are encouraged to sign up. Details of rules and minimum handicap will be announced. Michele Brown reported on the Four-Holers and noted this year we had a number of ladies who had played golf previously, but had been away from the game for quite a few years. Those ladies moved up to the 9-hole group rather quickly. All the four-holers showed significant improvement and had a great time this season. Michele Brown also reported on the website. Statistic reports showed traffic increased each month and we had over 485 unique visitors to the site. We recorded over 95,000 hits to the site, which shows it was used extensively. Plans for improving the layout and content of the site are underway and changes will be made during the off-season. Aggie thanked Michele for her work in getting the new Web Page going this year. It has been invaluable in keeping members informed and has received numerous compliments from visitors outside the league. Michele asked members to submit suggestions for improvements to the Web Page. That can be done anonymously from the site. Bylaws: o Shirley Rodgers explained the Special Events Committee’s recommendation that the responsibilities for the Ladies Club Championship be removed from that committee and instead a committee representing both the Late Swingers’ and the Wednesday Morning Leagues be established. Changes in the Bylaws to that effect were adopted by voice vote. The Wednesday Morning League will be asked to concur. o Aggie explained the method used to determine the Most Improved Player. Because there was no written methodology used in the league, she contacted the USGA. The USGA method is to subtract the start-of-season handicap plus 12 from the end-of- season handicap plus 12 and divide the difference by the start-of-season handicap. She recommended that the by-laws reflect that the USGA methodology will be used. The addition to the Bylaws was adopted by voice vote. Shirley Rodgers announced the League Tournament winners and distributed gift certificates: o Fifth Flight: st o 1 – Jill LeMaster nd o 2 – Kelly McKensie o o Fourth Flight: st o 1 Low Gross – Donna Grimes nd o 2 Low Gross – Kim Hammons o st o 1 Low Net – Missy Jolliff nd o 2 Low Net- Ruth Hinkle o o Third Flight: st o 1 Low Gross – Mickey Smith nd o 2 Low Gross – Janet Green o st o 1 Low Net – Becky Parrish nd o 2 Low Net – Carol Payton o o Second Flight: st o 1 Low Gross – Renee Thomas nd o 2 Low Gross – Esther Wilhoyte o st o 1 Low Net – Tara Parker nd o 2 Low Net – Terri Price o o First Flight: st o 1 Low Gross – Teresa Prather nd o 2 Low Gross – Charlotte Pyles o st o 1 Low Net – Susan Goins nd o 2 Low Net – Julie Dawson o o Championship Flight: st o 1 Low Gross – Donna Marlin nd o 2 Low Gross: Ann French Thomas o st o 1 Low Net – Connie Wiard nd o 2 Low Net – Megan Brewer Shirley Rodgers announced the Nominating Committee’s slate of officers for the 2008-09 season: o League Administrator: Barbara Reynolds,Chair; Shirley Rodgers, Co-Chair Michele Brown, Chair; Aggie Hampton, Co-Chair o Thursday Night League: Karen Pilcher, Chair; AudieRodgers, Co-Chair o Special Events/Tournaments: Carol Payton, Chair; Trina Roberts, Co-Chair o Four-Holers: Trish Tyler, Chair; unnamed Co-Chair Members voted by paper ballot.
