1. Review of previous minutes
Mr. Kennedy proposed a change to allow fivesomes on the course to capitalize on increased summer volume and add what he called “churn” to revenue, Mr. Bevins vehemently objected.
Mr. Kennedy was overruled and motion never made it to a vote.
2. Upcoming club events
Members discussed the upcoming wedding reception of Brenda Hagerty and Tim Gallagher in the banquet hall. Mr. Barnes notified staff that the couple had in fact decided on a menu of chicken fingers and tater tots, clearing up the confusion about whether or not that was their children's menu. Barnes requested a kitchen staff of two cooks and one dishwasher and a wait staff of four servers. Mr. Bevins volunteered to run security for the event and will be patrolling the grounds on the evening of the nuptials.
Action: Barnes and Bevins
3. Employee Dress Code Concern
Mr. Kennedy made Mr. Bevins aware of the fact that several members of the club have expressed concern about his new Make America Great Again ball cap and satin jacket. The members in question said they felt uncomfortable and even unsafe in Mr. Bevin's presence due to the apparel. Mr. Kennedy asked Darrel to please refrain from wearing any item of clothing that explicitly promotes a political or religious point of view. Mr. Bevins asked which (specific) members lodged the complaint in question. Mr. Kennedy refused to divulge that information for confidentiality reasons. Darrel quietly got up and locked the door and said "nobody is leaving this conference room until I have the name of every 'libtard' in this club that complained about my hat." Mr. Kennedy immediately divulged that members McWilliams, Henry, Walsh, Schaefer, Kahoutek, Martin and Frazier as the complaining parties. Darrel made several notations in his mini spiral notepad and abruptly excused himself from the meeting.
4. Pro shop inventory
CPG requested an order of 250 40-count bags of refurbished Slazenger Raw Distance balls to supplement the depleted inventory of golf balls after a busy season of corporate outings. The pro shop will also be receiving fresh inventory of club branded Walter Hagen golf polos, in both Mustard Yellow and Faded Salmon colors. CPG also suggested marking down the shop’s excessive Strata inventory to closeout pricing for the upcoming “Christmas in August” shop sale. The request was denied.
5. Member-Guest updates
CPG laid out his plan for the upcoming Member-Guest tournament, detailing that his preparation for this years event entailed pulling out the file from the 2018 event.
For the fourth year in a row, a simulated leather valuables pouch will be the primary tee gift. Barnes notified the committee that even though the membership was told that $540.00 of the $900.00 entry fee was budgeted for food, the actual food cost is roughly $16.80 per participant.
Also, CPG informed the committee that flight payouts have been lowered 40% due to unforeseen 'administrative' costs. Mr. Kennedy remarked that he will need CPG to provide an itemized accounting of those costs and CPG replied that he will need Mr. Kennedy to "shit in his own hands and clap".
6. Closing remarks
Mr. Kennedy remarked that he was pleased with the progress the club is making and as he was segueing into a parable about how we are all cogs in a machine, he was interrupted by a late arriving Ms. Adams. Chairperson Kennedy finished his remarks and dismissed the members.
7. Next meeting
