October is finally here; hopefully, cooler temperatures will follow.  Your board is putting the final fiscal figures together.  (Try saying that three times.) 

The growing season is slowing down, so we can move forward with other projects that have been on the back burner for a while.

We’ve had a really great year, with the latest event being the Slavic Open.  All involved staff did a really professional job with the tournament.  Many of the participants said that we have the best golf courses on the Gulf Coast.  It is the result of really hard work by Steven Smith and his grounds crew.  I want to thank the entire staff.  Without their help we would not have been able to pull it off.  I’ve heard that they already signed on for next year.

Hurricane Nate is now history and we are so thankful that we were on the west side of the storm. I implemented the emergency plan and all managers and their staff performed their part in it.  Great teamwork.  Thank you for your preparatory work and then follow up work to put everything back to normal conditions.
