The 2015 WDCGA season officially ended on Thursday, November 12th with the Fall Team and Executive Board meeting. At the meeting, the Executive Board unanimously approved the slate of officers for 2016: Kay Tyler, President (Kenwood/Belle Haven); Diane Herndon, Vice-President (Argyle); Mary Ann Cronin, Secretary (Army Navy) and Tatjana Keuper, Treasurer (Woodmont).
The Fall Luncheon, immediately following the meeting, was a spirited celebration, focused on a successful season, the biennial passing of the gavel, and the ten WDCGA members who qualified to play in USGA events this year.
WDCGA out-going President Pam Oetgen presided at the luncheon. She welcomed invited guests, including the immediate past president of the Maryland State Women’s Division (MSGA-WD), Melly Tucker, as well as the newly installed MSGA-WD President, Carolyn Hudson.
The luncheon program acknowledged the ten WDCGA members who qualified for USGA tournaments this year--WDCGA Champion Alex Austin (VA State team); Janice Calomiris, Deb Pearson and Julia Calomiris (DC State Team); Maggie Brady, Bev Lane,Linda DiVall (Senior Am); Lisa Schlesinger and Mimi Hoffman (Sr. Am and Mid-Am) and Lauren Greenlief, winner of the USGA Mid-Am.
Hearing personal experiences from speakers Mimi Hoffman, who has qualified for the USGA Sr. Am eight times, and Mid-Am Champion Lauren Greenlief was the highlight of the luncheon. The WDCGA is inspired by the dedication of all our USGA qualifiers and beyond proud to have a USGA Champion in our midst.
