How to Schedule an Activity Event

Do you have a favorite activity you want to turn into a regular club happening?

There are ways to do that.  That is, we can help gin up interest and participation with your idea.   It starts with telling someone!  Send your suggestion to the Activities Committee.  They have seasoned pros that can help at organizing group events.

Already been through that and you're just looking to get a repeat event on our calendar?  Then, read below.

How to Get an Event on the Club's Calendar

Lead time please!

Give the club's Social Coordinator sufficient lead time.  Three days is almost always okay, five days is better. Golf is an exception.  See below.

Getting an event on the calendar requires 3 things;
(after it's been planned and prepared.)

  1. Notifying the Social Coordinator by delivering the necessary information.

  2. Certifying that the event does not conflict with any existing events, (and our policies.)

  3. Entering the data into the system

Entering the data is only a few minutes, but scheduling that work can be difficult for our volunteers, who after-all lead busy lives!  

Three days is usually sufficient, more is a kindness for standard events.  Anything that might conflict, however requires more time as more club members with vital interests need to be consulted. 

We'll try to respond on short notice, but a lead time of 3 days for routine items and 5 days for the stuff involving nets is what your Events Management team has committed to.  Got it?

Golf is a partial exception in that the Golf Coordinator needs time to consider the implications for the overall golf schedule.

For anything more spontaneous and without the club's imprimatur take advantage of our social media pages on Facebook .  

Meetup is a curated copy of our social calendar.  They've both attracted lots of members and attention.
