BEARly Open Feb 46 Ken Galloway thanked club members for the good response to sponsorships and auction items for the revised BEARly Open. Things are moving along well, but there is still much to do to make it a successful event. We can still use additional donors to the auction and more hole sponsors. We have been getting golfers to register, but this will be a key component to success. Please consider putting together a foursome, creating a costume, and registering soon. We will be soliciting for online auction registrations soon in January, so watch for that and please sign up. Weve been getting some great donations.Volunteers will be needed on Thursday thru Saturday the week of the event (Feb. 4 6). Please consider taking a slot or two when the signup sheet goes out. The work load will be much less this year than previous years
