President's Letter


December 30, 2021

   As another COVID pandemic year draws to a close, I trust that Santa has found you all in good health and enjoying the holidays with your friends and family.  Although one would have hoped that by the time we got to the end of 2021 the COVID pandemic would be behind us that, unfortunately, is not at all the case and it appears that the pandemic will be with us for some time to come.  As a group of seniors we are apparently more susceptible to contracting the virus and suffering from its ill effects.  Therefore, until which time as this pandemic situation is officially over, it is important that we all stay vigilant in following the relevant restrictions regarding social distancing and face masks and that we all get fully vaccinated, including the booster shot.
  Congratulations to Rick Nabbefeld our 2021 Player of the Year (POY).  Over the last few MBSGA events the POY competition got down to a two horse race between Rick and Jeff Collins with the winner being finally decided by the results from our year end Individual Point Par event at San Juan Oaks.
  A listing of the top 2021 POY finishers can be viewed on our MBSGA website and will be available for the next couple of weeks. 
 We were recently informed that the course and facilities at San Juan Oaks will be undergoing significant renovation and that the course will be closed for nominally the next 18 months.  As a result, the four events previously scheduled for San Juan Oaks in 2022 (i.e., the events on February 10th, June 16th, September 22nd and December 8th) will need to be moved to other venues.  We are currently in discussions with possible replacement venues and will update the list of MBSGA Tournaments on the website as soon as those alternative arrangements have been finalized within the next couple of weeks.  In the meantime, here is the list of events in January which are not expected to change:
         January 6th       Los Lagos
         January 13th     Eagle Ridge
         January 20th     Spring Hills
         January 27th     Coyote Creek (Valley)
  That’s all I have to share for now. Stay well and stay safe.
