Gentlemen of the Builders Tee Club:
 May 2, 2019

  

 

They say April showers bring May flowers but c’mon how many flowers do we really need? I mean flowers are pretty and all and I like them, but not a boat load! I was beginning to consider building an Ark. LOL!

Anyway, we sure have had a lot rain this past week and Ravisloe golf course was under water. The scramble was postponed and will be rescheduled. I hope none of our members had any flooding or leaks at home.

 

The “Wackiest Golf Shot Award” is now in the trusted hands of Phil Jurczewski, our inaugural winner. I’m sure he has placed it in a prominent place in his home while he possesses it. Next week Phil will be seeking out and, hopefully finding the next winner of the wackiest golf shot award. So make sure to see Phil or myself, if someone in your group hits a wacky shot.

 

There are some great ideas for better communication in our BTC organization and they will be discussed later in the newsletter. That's it for now, as it is pouring rain and I hope to see everyone next week at Sanctuary golf course.    

 

May Birthdays: Ron Abramowicz, Arnie Carlstrom, Jim Day, Gerald Junkas, Phil Jurczewski, Thomas Krug Jr., Lawrence Lloyd, Bob Martino, Craig O’Reilly, Kenneth Pencak, Les Podlasek, Frank Reichenberger, Cory Rob, Terry Samoska, James Sujka, Kenneth Wisniewski, Daniel Woodward. Happy Birthday gentlemen, I hope your cake doesn’t float away.

 

Upcoming Events:

 

May 7th      Sanctuary        1st round Presidents Cup 

May 14th    Glenwoodie    1st round 2-man

 

Fraternally,

   Your Secretary

Kevin Bewley

 

 

 

TEXT and EMAIL updates of golf course cancellations, etc are available, but each member has to sign-up, and it only takes 2 minutes .  Click on this link, http://builderstee.com/TextMessageSignup.html, and follow the instructions.

 

To encourage everyone to sign up for the text service, included again this week are the directions for the service. The service was used for last Tuesday's cancellation and was very successful in notifying members of the necessary change in schedule. Please take the time to register for this service.

 

BTC Members:

Greg Lewis & Rich Schroeder, with the approval of our President, Larry Garetto, established a BTC account with a texting service last year (RainedOut.com).  It would be used to issue last minute announcements that would otherwise be too late to act on, before the next newsletter was published.  We foresee it to keep you informed of changes to our scheduled sports (rainout for golf, dinner time changed, etc.), or the passing of a member.  Each member needs to sign up from their smart phone, via text (instructions below).  Each sport group has its own announcement sub-group, and there is a general account for those that only want general announcements.

 

1-Text address is 84483

 

2-Type one of the bolded keywords below, as your message:

 

BTCgolf -golf and general notices

BTCbowling -bowling and general notices

BTCtennis -tennis and general notices

Builderstee -general notices only

 

For those that participate in multiple sports, you should sign up multiple times with the keywords above.  You will not get duplicate messages, even if you sign up for multiple accounts.

 

3-press SEND

 

4-You will get a text back, confirming you signed up, and that’s it!

 

Chairmen, Greg & Rich, can issue the notices, so contact one of us, when needed.  The same text notice will also appear on our website, the current newsletter page.  On occasion, a notice may need to refer you to the website, for more information, as the text notice is limited to 120 characters.  Let Rich know if additional information needs to be posted to the website.

 

 

SOMETHING NEW FOR OUR MEMBERS - We are going to put a video, etc. on the web site, that's "in the news" or good for you (Click Here).  Here's also the bonus link, to help get your golf game in shape for next season.  If anyone has photos or videos to share, of our Club in action, please email them to Webmaster@builderstee.com If your screen ever displays out-dated information, try to Refresh your PC first (F5 key).  The website has recently been updated to be more "mobile-device friendly".  Try visiting us from your tablet or smart phone, and send us your feedback.

Also, remember to check the "Other/Fleamarket" page for golf-related equipment for sale & upcoming golf events from our members.  Advertising here is FREE, for members only.  Click HERE for more bowling statsClick HERE for current golf handicaps & Full Season Golf Schedule Last year's financial report as presented by our Treasurer (click here).   Click Here to sign up  for Rained-Out text messages (click here for instructions).
