Hello Friends and Participants of the MMJGA,

My apologies for the re-send of this newsletter, but I had a pretty major date error on it... read on!

Even with snow on the ground and more in the forecast today, the golf season is underway. We look forward to having you back for another great year!


The Season is Upon Us

The MMJGA is having a mandatory meeting for all returning caddies where we will talk about the changes and upgrades to the program for the 2009 season.

We have some exciting new events planned for this season and we are looking forward to seeing you all there.

MMJGA Kick-Off Meeting
Saturday, March 14th at 3 PM
Minneapolis Urban League
2100 Plymouth Avenue N

The meeting will last a little over an hour and parents are highly encouraged to attend. This event is MANDATORY for returning participants but if for some reason you are unable to attend (curing cancer or caddying for the PGA tour event this weekend are acceptable excuses), please call Jack at 612.309.8884.


Help Us Recruit

Every year much of our recruiting of new participants is done by you. Simple word of mouth advertising is the most powerful recruitment tool we have. If you have friends who are interested in the program, we have a seperate meeting for them immediately following our meeting:

MMJGA Meeting For New Participants
Saturday, March 14th at 4 PM
Minneapolis Urban League
2100 Plymouth Avenue N.

This meeting will also last about an hour and we'll go over all the details of the program. If you have friends who are interested in the MMJGA but cannot attend, please have them call Jack at 612.309.8884 as soon as possible.


U of M Game A Hit

On Sunday, March 1st a handful of MMJGAers attended the University of Minnesota Womens Basketball finale at Williams Arena. Although the Gophers were not victorious, the event was very fun.

We will be adding other non-golf events to our schedule in 2009 in an effort to broaden our reach. We are very excited to announce our season events very soon

If you have any questions or concerns, please email info@mmjga.org or call 612.702.1406.
