1. Review of previous minutes
Mr. Kennedy opened the meeting by wishing the staff a “happy holidays,” which made Mr. Bevins visibly agitated. Mr. Bevins asked that Mr. Kennedy say “Merry Christmas" like real Americans have been saying for over 250 years. Mr. Kennedy reminded Mr. Bevins that the club's membership has a wide array of beliefs and that each should be respected in order to promote inclusion, making "Happy Holidays" a more appropriate moniker.
Darrel paused, then rose from his chair and slowly began to walk towards where Mr. Kennedy was seated. Sensing a confrontation, Miguel attempted to get between the two men. As Miguel restrained him, Darrel began shouting that the infant baby Jesus died on the cross so Americans could have the right to say Merry Christmas (and carry guns). CPG then joined Miguel in attempting to hold Darrel back as he continued to rant (at the top of his lungs) about the war on Christmas and something about how President Trump's impeachment is part of Satan's grand plan to make every man, woman and child in America transgender.
Thankfully CPG and Miguel were able to force Darrel out of the room. After a brief silence, Mr. Kennedy opened the floor for updates.
2. Holiday Hours
CPG notified the members that the pro shop will have its Holiday hours in effect on December 25th and will only be open from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM, but the pro shop will remain open until 11pm on Christmas Eve to accommodate last minute shoppers. He cited an incident from Christmas Eve 2017 in which a drunken Hal Bradfield broke into the pro shop, took an entire set of Orlimar 3i-PW set and left $200 cash on the counter before passing out in his car in the parking lot.
CPG also informed the group that the club’s “Stocking Stuffer” membership drive was a big success, as the club has sold an additional 17 memberships thanks to a successful, locally viral Facebook campaign dubbed "Operation Bait and Switch". CPG explained that this membership is unique in that the new members pay a large sum upfront and are told that they will have full access and playing privileges to the club throughout 2020, but on May 1st they will learn that this membership is limited to weekday access to the pool only.
3. Company Holiday Party
Miss Adams let the staff know that the club’s holiday party will be taking place at 3pm on Monday, December 23 and has been moved from the Keith Clearwater banquet room to the T.C. Chen banquet room due to a potential mold issue. Thanks to Mr. Kennedy’s generosity, all employees are allowed to bring a plus one. Mr. Kennedy reminded Miguel not to bring his entire family like last year due to fire code ordinances.
Anastasia continued to detail the party, telling everyone that she plans on dressing "Holiday slutty" but everyone else can dress business casual. She tasked Ernesto with locating the club’s Santa costume. CPG then added that they may want to look into getting the suit dry cleaned after the suit was soiled at last year’s party. He also suggested they buy a new suit entirely, to which Mr. Kennedy objected.
4. Course Maintenance Update
Mr. Vega informed the staff that if they do not have a Christmas dinner to attend, they are more than welcome to attend his family’s celebration. Guests are asked to bring side items and desserts. His family will provide carne asada, mezcal and fireworks. He said he has gotten several maybes, but would like a hard number by the end of the week so he can tell his 93-year old aunt how much food to make.
5. Closing Remarks
Mr. Kennedy ended the meeting and wished the staff a very happy holiday season and urged staff members to think of what they are thankful for this holiday season. He said he was thankful for each and every one of his employees. He then played “The Christmas Shoes” by NewSong as employees exited the staff break room.
