ATTEND THE DECEMBER 6, 2017 MEETING
AT THE WARRIOR ICE ARENA

Our first winter meeting will be held at the practice facility of the Boston Bruins.  This will be our second visit to this facility located in the Boston Landing area of Boston.  The area is anchored by the headquarters building of New Balance.

The Bruins are scheduled to practice during the morning portion of the meeting and we've set aside time to view their routine.  Practice is scheduled to begin at 10:30 AM.  While this practice is on the schedule, the coach could change this at any time.

Our guest speakers will be Jesse Menachem, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Golf Association (MGA) and Kevin Doyle, Northeast Field Staff Representative of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA). 

Jesse will detail the consolidation of the Womens Golf Association of Massachusetts (WGAM) and the MGA and explain some of the changes coming to Massachusetts golf as a result of this consolidation. 

Kevin will explain the specifics of The First Green Foundation and how the program can help us become an integral part of an education program for school children.  To read about this program, please click the first green.

Jeff Urquhart will again be collecting gently used winter coats to be donated to those who are not in a position to purchase one.  If you've been thinking of a way to make a difference or help someone less fortunate, this is one way to do it.

IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT WATER WITHDRAWALS ANNUAL REPORT

On September 20, 2017, MassDEP issued a notification letter to Water Management Act (WMA) registrants and permittees regarding the electronic filing of the Water Withdrawals Annual Report Form (ARF) set to begin this year. Typically you receive a paper copy of the ARF at the end of each year, and it is due by the end of February. This December, MassDEP plans to email an electronic version instead.
 
The letter included three attachments: a Hardship Application Form, General Information Form, and a listing of Unique IDs for your withdrawal sources. Please submit the General Information Form to us by November 30th. You may mail the form to Shi Chen at the address below, or email it to Shi.Chen@state.ma.us. Alternatively, you can simply email Shi the best email address for receiving the ARF electronically.
 
The Hardship Application should be submitted in lieu of the General Information Form only if you are unable to file your ARF electronically. Please submit the Unique ID form only if corrections are needed to the names or number of withdrawal sources. Contact Shi Chen at 617-292-5532 or Shi.Chen@state.ma.us with any questions on your Unique IDs.
