|Wed 31 Mar||West Byfleet|
|Fri 16 Apr||Puttenham|
|Fri 7 May||Chartham Park|
|Fri 4 Jun||Suffolk Tour|
|Sat 3 Jul||Seaford Head|

|Tue 28 Sep||Wimbledon Park|
|Sat 16 Oct||Lamerwood|

Having established that Easter is on Sun 4 April, it was decided that the spacing of the first two events works.
RL is asked
CB reported that WAGS funds stand at £9,351 comprised of £2,997 in the current account and £6,354 in the deposit account.
After deducting Members’ advance payments of £2,277 and the hole in one fund of £644, the balance held by WAGS is £6,430. Of this, £2,500 is currently allocated to the 2012 “20 Year” tour and it was agreed to increase this allocation to £3,000.
CB reported that both the Wales and Cornwall 2009 Tours were self funding so no WAGS contribution was needed.
CB proposed and the Committee agreed that 2010 subs will remain the same as 2009.
SS relayed that several requests had been made for another golf shirt. This is seen as a popular idea and discussions were held on achieving a colour as legendary as the “minty”.
Another idea was for a WAGS belt complete with the logo on the buckle. SS will investigate these ideas and report back.
Within the end of year review, MB will analyse and adjust the handicaps of this year’s new members for next season.
A question was raised about the definition of a Junior WAG. Committee reaffirmed that Junior status technically only applies to those still in full time education.
Given that a few WAGS sons have graduated and are now in employment, their status needs confirming ahead of next season.
Once again it was recognised that there is a huge amount of data held on the site which is as yet unused. SS offered to consider how this might be tapped into without using days of programming work.
Following the proposal at the AGM, Committee agreed the principle of members enhancing their profiles to include their business/trade/profession. It was agreed that the first step might be to add to the WAGSite a short work description with a website link. JS is asked to liaise with SS and make a proposal.
RL will be back in the UK on 9 January for 2-3 weeks, so the next meeting will be in that period.
