Tony Blatnik and Kirk Ferris Win the March 2-Man Scramble

March 11th, 2019 posted by Jim Thompson

Congratulations to the team of Tony Blatnik and Kirk Ferris which won the 2019 March 2-Man Scramble with a net score of 62 in a card-off.

First Flight:  Gary O’Hara and Dan Malloy won also with a net 62.  Paul and Matt Determan, Greg Enright and Bobby Braun, Michael Ladd and Chris Striebel, Gareth and Mike Garety, Chris Cuyugan and Joji Mangubat, Keith Hughes and David Kachigian and Rick McGaffigan and Barry Finnerty all tied for 2nd place.

Second Flight:  Tony and Kirk won, with Rob Morgan and Jamie Elwell in 2nd place, with Bob Podoloff and David Bryant, Jan Gosewich and Robert O’Leary and Billy Pirtle and Jack Renshaw all tying for 3rd place. 

The Pro Shop commented that we had numerous 5 hour rounds.  This format should be faster since there are only two balls being played.  Please try to keep rounds to 4 ½ hours at most.  Remember, keep up with the group in front, not with the group behind.

Thanks to all of the CMGC members who participated.

Restaurant Reconstruction Impacts

January 25th, 2019 posted by Jim Thompson

Not only will the restaurant be inaccessible to us during the reconstruction, but the Coronado Men’s Club Room will be unavailable as well.  As you can expect, this will have an impact on the normal tournament operations.  Players should expect to see fewer food offerings, fewer Player’s Pool opportunities, and no check-in table, among other things, during this period of reconstruction.  The Board of Governors has decided to redirect a majority of the funds normally used for food and beverage to the chit/prize fund pool for each tournament conducted during the reconstruction period.  This will prove to be inconvenient for all of us and we ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate our way ahead.

Food and Beverage Survey Results

January 25th, 2019 posted by Jim Thompson

In December 2018 the Board of Governors (“BoG”) requested a response from club members to a survey primarily focused on our food and beverage offerings during tournaments.  The following provides the results from the survey for your information:

1.  On a scale 1 -10, with 1 being “not at all important” to 10 being “absolutely essential”, how important is it to you to have food and beverages provided at each tournament?  Average: 2.14

2.  If we were to stop providing food and beverages at each tournament, would it impact your willingness to participate in future tournaments?

(a) number responding with “Extremely likely” = 9 

(b) number responding with “Somewhat likely” = 25

(c) number responding with “Not at all likely” = 116

3.  If we were to stop providing food and beverages at each tournament, would you prefer?

(a) number responding with “funds be used for more chits” = 76

(b) number responding with “lowering the entry costs” = 51

(c) number responding with “other” = 17

4.  Rank in order (1 thru 5 with 1 being most important and 5 the least important) the following:

  • Breakfast at Tournaments; average ranking = 3.48
  • Lunch at Tournaments; average ranking = 2.76
  • Drink Tickets at Tournaments; average ranking = 2.52
  • Food and Beverages at General Meetings; average ranking = 3.56
  • Higher Chit payouts; average ranking = 2.72

Your BoG will definitely consider these results (and narratives provided by others but not included here) as we move our club forward in 2019.  We sincerely appreciate your time and excellent inputs.

Celebration of Life for Clem Lee

January 19th, 2019 posted by Jim Thompson

As many of you know, Coronado Men’s Club member, Clem Lee, passed in November 2018. 

Clem was born on January 29, 1935 in Arkansas.  He was raised in Corcoran, California with his 10 siblings and loving parents.  He spent his later years as a loving husband, father, grandfather, lover of golf, lifetime Detroit Tiger and Fresno State Bulldog enthusiast, and friend to all he met.  The world was a better place with The Clemster in it, and he will be lovingly missed by those he adored, and that had the honor of loving him.

There is going to be a Celebration of Life of Clem Lee at the Coronado Boathouse on Sunday, Jan 20, from 12:30 – 3:30 PM.  The Boathouse is located 1985 Strand Way, past the Coronado Community/Recreation Center at the south end of the Glorietta Bay Park.

Clem is survived by his best friend and wife of 40 years, Susan Lee, his 6 children, 13 grandchildren, and 9 great grandchildren.
