SB&R Participation:  Guest Speaker and president of SB & R Ura Furry came to tell our membership that we are invited to join their regional group of nine golf courses in the Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.  The organization hosts a play day on the third Thursday of each month on a rotation schedule for each club hosting one of these play days.  The club membership dues are $25 to join and each member within each of the membership clubs will pay $15 in dues for the year.  Individuals compete for points in both net and gross competitions each month.  At the end of the quarter, the points convert to cash.  The end of the year in October they play for individual annual winners.  Right now they do not play in August or November and in December they play the first Thursday.  There are 120 individual members and they average 75 players per SB & R play day.  Cost of a play day per individual includes green fees, lunch and $3.  Clubs are:  Cherry Hills, Moreno Valley, Paradise Knolls, Jurupa Hills, Seven Hills, Canyon Lake, Menifee Lakes, Colony and Glen Ivy.
Play days are mixed foursomes as A, B, C, D.  Shotgun start at 8:00.  All individual play except December which is two best ball of the foursome. 
Ura also asked if we would be interested in their invitational tournament in May at Canyon Lakes (her home course).
50/50:  $42 collected in 50/50.  $21 to Treasury and 3 prizes of $7 each will be raffled off.  Winners were Sue Johnson, Sue Johnson and Terry Russell.
