Hola El Tigre Golfers,
This Wednesday we will be playing a four person “red-white-blue” team game where each team will need to count three best net scores for all red pins, two net best balls for all white pins and one net best ball for all blue pins. Please record both gross and net scores for all players on all holes and provide team scoring summaries for the front 9, the back 9 and the total 18 hole score. Don’t forget to circle all gross deuces (2’s) on your scorecard and also to repair all divots.
I would like to thank all members for their great participation in support of the Members Christmas donation campaign. Today will be the last day of the campaign. Any and all contributions are greatly appreciated. If you are back in the US or Canada and you would like to make a contribution, there are several options. For any Canadian member, Alan Bayliss has suggested that people use a service called e-Transfer, where you can email money to people. Alan has graciously offered to help out here and if anyone in Canada would like to donate through this service, (e-Transfer) they can send their contribution to Alan at firstname.lastname@example.org. For any US member looking to make a contribution, I have a PayPal account that would allow me to accept a contribution. You can contact me at email@example.com for more information.
In the last six weeks, I have received a number of emails from league players (that have recently travelled to Mexico from the US or Canada) looking for direction concerning when they could play in the Men’s League event. Due to the current worldwide covid situation, we would recommend that all players follow the latest health/science guidelines issued by the CDC covering international travelers. Just before Thanksgiving, the US CDC issued new recommendations for international travelers and they advised travelers to stay home for a minimum of a one week post-travel period. We would recommend to all newly arriving travelers, looking to participate in the weekly Wednesday Men’s league event, that they follow these recommendations. There are certain circumstances where a newly arriving traveler may feel that they need to stay home for longer than one week (eg. potential recent exposure to a person that tested positive for covid), and this is understandable and commendable. We would ask everyone to err on the side of safety to protect their fellow golfers. We thank you for your understanding and support.
Good luck to all golfers!
