One of the key things we need your help with is confirming our membership for 2019, so please arrange to have your renewal dues into the club before March 1. We would like all existing and new members to also print off, review, sign and return the attached updated letter of agreement (LOA). For the first time in several years, the dues are increasing this year to $95. Please note we will all be Gold Golf Canada members, a $52.45 value we receive at a discount and described in this link: http://albertagolf.org/join/ Should you NOT be renewing your membership for the 2019 season, it would be appreciated if you reply by email (email@example.com) to let us know. Your name will be removed from the email list to make room for new members. If we do not hear back from members or have not received their dues by March 1, we will attempt to contact them. We plan to start filling up the membership with guys from the waiting list, so please let us know your plans for the upcoming season.
Those members who took a leave of absence for the 2018 season must let us know by email if they intend to play in the 2019 season or let their membership pass. Please reply right away. If we have not heard from you by March 1, we will assume that you are not returning. All members have the option of taking a one year leave of absence. We must receive an email from you to confirm this.
You are able to pay your 2019 dues in one of two ways. Starting this year you can e-transfer your $95 to Club Treasurer Terry Koch at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can mail your cheques made out to Maple Ridge Men’s Golf Club (please write out full name of club) to:
Maple Ridge Men’s Golf Club. PO Box 81159 755 Lake Bonavista Dr SE Calgary AB T2J 0N0.
