Dear MSGA Members:
A Special Meeting of the MSGA Board of Directors was held on April 26, 2021 to discuss the 2021 MSGA Schedule of Events and the challenges which the impact of Covid 19 has presented to our scheduled events again this year. The Board of Directors discussed the uncertainty currently involving travel, the availability of golf courses and their amenities during the upcoming 2021 golf season. To address these challenges the Board of Directors has made some important changes to our 2021 Schedule of Events.
The MSGA shall not be collecting membership dues from our Members for 2021. We shall proceed to collect membership dues again in the Spring of 2022.
The MSGA Invitational which was scheduled to be played at Moncton Golf and Country Club on Sunday June 20, and Royal Oaks on Monday June 21, will be rescheduled to be played in June 2022.
Our Field Day Plus which had been scheduled to be played at Amherst on July 18, and Northumberland on July 19, shall be rescheduled to be played in July 2022.
Our MSGA Annual Meet is scheduled to be held at the Digby Pines from August 30 to September 1, 2021. We are delighted that we will be able to enjoy this beautiful Stanley Thompson designed golf course and our Annual Meet at the Digby Pines.
We have been working closely with the Digby Pines on this event, and we would like to hold our Annual Meet as scheduled this year if the current situation improves sufficiently to allow us to proceed. The Digby Pines has agreed to allow the MSGA until June 30, 2021 to confirm that we will be proceeding with our Annual Meet as scheduled, or alternatively to reschedule our event to similar dates in 2022.
The MSGA will be conducting an email survey of all members in early June to canvass our members interest in attending the Annual Meet as scheduled this year. We encourage you to respond to our survey at that time and hope that we will be able to see you at our Annual Meet at the end of August.
Take care, stay safe, and we hope to see everyone on the golf course very soon.
