No meetinig tomorrow February 5

All,

The decision has been made to not have Rotary tomorrow based on not only the weather but the fact that Wheatbelt is having one of their 3 shows per year at the Expo. Center and all the parking lots and streets are full of vendors and attendees vehicles. It will be a tremendous mess tomorrow not being able to clean the lots while all of them are full and thus making noon parking that much more difficult.

 

Another factor was that our speaker was traveling in from out of town and has cancelled.

 

The lunch was scheduled to be at the Holiday Inn and they are not going to charge us for the lunch or meeting room cancellation.

 

No members will be charged for tomorrows missed luncheon and I will ask Kevin to make the appropriate entries.   

 

If anyone is upset with this decision I apologize and you are welcome to meet me for lunch tomorrow anyway.

 

Thanks!  

 

Daniel J. Runde

Golf tournaments winning funds and influencing people
Golf as we know it began in Scotland sometime in the 15th century. Eighty years ago, when Rotary's 25th anniversary convention was held in Chicago, Rotarians played golf at more than 30 clubs. Then, in 1962, golfers from District 101 in Scotland and 728 in Pennsylvania, USA, played the first match in what has become an annual event. The next year, the idea for the International Golfing Fellowship of Rotarians took root during a conversation between incoming RI President Carl P. Miller and 1963-64 Scottish District Governor Gavin Reekie. That chat led to an international championship tournament of Rotarians in 1964 at St. Andrews. The first tournament drew 47 contestants from 10 countries. Last year's event, held in Kitzbuhel, Austria, attracted 330 participants from 30 countries, including 80 first-timers.
