Dear Baystaters....
Hello Baystaters! It is hard to believe that the summer is fast coming to an end and we will be starting the NEW Club year of 2014-2015 in just a few short weeks! I so hope that you have been enjoying a safe and healthy summer!
I'm writing this now to give you a "Heads Up" about the NIGHT GOLF event planned for Thursday, October 2, 2014. Club member, Rick Mumma is spearheading this event for us: Please contact him at rdman49 at aol dot com if you are planning on attending. Though there will be sign-ups at the September 17th, meeting, it will be helpful if you contact Rick ASAP of your intentions to participate. More detailed information will be forthcoming.
Please note: Membership Application/Renewal:

Baystaters Club Bocce Information
Please note we are starting our league on October 10, 2014 (Friday morning) at 9:30 am at El Santiago Bocce courts. It is the responsibility of the captain to let the members on your team know when to show up. If they are not available, please arrange for a sub. We are starting 30 minutes later this year. See you there!!.

Club Meetings meet from September to APRIL??
The May meetings are historically sparse in attendance due to the high number of our membership being seasonal. At the April meeting, I posed the question about considering changing the Club By-laws to reflect a Club Year of 8 months instead of 9. For those of you not present at that meeting - What are your thoughts????

Club Membership has increased dramatically over the past few years and we THANK YOU for your support of our efforts and for helping to "spread the word" about the Club. Will you continue to do so by encouraging your Massachusetts friends who are not now members to join and be a part of our Club events?
