Bemidji Town & Country Club Online Newsletter - 10/13/07

My name is Scott Tuomala and I want to introduce myself as the new President of Bemidji Town and Country Club. I have served as the Greens Committee Chairman for the last two years so many of you already know me. If you don't know me, I look forward to meeting you in the near future.

I want to personally thank our outgoing President Gene Bakke for a job well done in trying change over period that took place at the Club this past year. His leadership and expertise will be missed on the board.

I want to welcome our newest board members Tony Burlingame, John Grand, and Kevin Williamson. Their educational experience and background will be a great asset to the club. With their addition to the board we have a great team!! I look forward to another outstanding season and working with such a talented group.

As President, my top priority is to keep the membership informed and involved in Club functions. We have a great Club, with great members, and we should all be part of making it even better!!

At this time we do have some pressing issues regarding the well and long term debt. I'm confident the well will be upgraded by spring of next year and the long term debt can be reduced with a solid year's performance.

As this season comes to a end, I can't wait for next year to start.

Scott Tuomala
