These are exciting times for the BT&CC. A long range planning committee has been formed. To assist in the long range planning the board of directors has hired Kevin Norby, of Herfort Norby design. Kevin is an experienced golf course architect. His resume includes numerous new course designs as well as course enhancement projects. You can check out their web site for more detail. The goal of this process is to establish a long range vision for the golf course. The first step in the process is to perform a hole by hole analysis. With guidance from the board of directors and the long range planning committee Kevin will develop a list of potential enhancements. Renderings of potential improvements will be available at the annual stockholders meeting. Just to be clear, the long range plan is intended for enhancements to the existing course. By no means does this process include changing the course layout. A follow up letter from the board of directors is forthcoming. This letter will provide more details on the long range planning process.

I want to extend special thanks to those who volunteered their time and tools to remodel the halfway house rest rooms. Thank you Paul Friesen, Tom Conzemius, Gary Johnson, Dave Falldorf, Gary Rients, Ted Lafriniere, and Charlie Moore.

Congratulations Rick and Lyndsay on the addition of Olivia Grace to your family.
