Club championship is June 6. Lively discussion on who plays what. Jack will send out clarification for those who want to be included in the tournament, those who want to play 18 holes but not be included [as for new members] and who wants to play only 9 holes. See Jack’s email for clarification.
Membership: two new members: Arthur Huff and Vaughn Williams. Welcome to them!
A reminder that SCGA keeps people as inactive for two years when dues are not paid. After two years they are dropped.

Your literary desert, with apologies to Ron Padgett:
Ladies and Gentlemen in Outer Space
Here is my philosophy:
Everything changes [the word ‘everything’
Has just changed as the
Word ‘change’ has: it now
Means ‘no change’] so
Quickly that it literally surpasses m y belief,
Changes right past it
Like some of the giant
Ideas in this area.
I had no beginning and I shall have
No end: the beam of light stretches out before and behind
And I cook the vegetables
For a few minutes only,
The fewer the better. Butter and serve.
Here is my philosophy: butter and serve.
And then play golf.
