Marion Maby news president of OCCGWA
The OCCGWA is a vibrant group of active golfers, who thoroughly enjoy the events made available to them through their association.
There’s something going on every week, and 2012 was capped in December by a hilarious 9-hole event, Christmas lunch, and general meeting.
Kudos to Becky Rubin for her efficient maintenance of the Ladies’ League section of the OCC website. There you will find everything to know about OCCWGA, and it’s worth having a look at the Bylaws and the Standing Rules. According to the Bylaws, the object of our local golf association is, “To promote and maintain the game of golf among the women of the OCCWGA under the USGA Rules of Golf.”
Scan the list of officers and committees to see what it takes to “promote and maintain”. And if you check out the Standing Rules, you’ll find out what it means to do this “under the rules of golf”.
The success of a golf association turns on its volunteers, and we have been fortunate to have many members willing to contribute. For 2013, some will stay on with the same committees as last year, some will assume different jobs, and some will retire to make room for new worker bees.
Find out who’s who by visiting the Ladies’ Section of the OCC website and scrolling down to the bottom of the page. Maybe this information should be at the top.
We certainly appreciate the fine job done in 2012 by our President, Donna Cantello. Fortunately for us, Donna stays on to assume the job of Treasurer for 2013. Of course, that’s not enough for this busy lady. She also has accepted a two-year appointment as President of NAWGA. Best wishes to Donna for success in that major position!
Marion Maby takes over as President for 2013, and her success in running last year’s Ladies’ Invitational alone qualifies her for this year’s job as president. Along with Donna, Marion’s executive team will include Allene Richlie as Vice-President, and Julie Larson as secretary.
Thanks to all our volunteers, and congratulations to all our winners!
