Wanted - Amateur Rules Chairman to serve on the Amateur Board....although it is important to have knowledge of the rules, this is not a major requirement as Rules Chairman. The primary responsibility of this position is to coordinate with CSGA, as they supply the rules officials to the Amateur. The chairman attends approximately 4 Amateur meetings a year and needs to attend the three-day Amateur tournament. The Rules Chairman would not play in the Amateur during the years they serve as chairman. SNEWGA sponsorship for attending a USGA Rules class, is also an option. If someone is interested in learning more about this position, please contact Robin McPhillips at 203-556-0505 (email@example.com).
Consider making a "once a week" check of the Bulletin Board to keep up-to-date on other interesting SNEWGA information.

Beginning in 2009, the CSGA adopted the local rule allowing the use of distance measuring devices in their tournaments. To be consistent with CSGA, the SNEWGA Board voted to permit the use of distance measuring devices (including GPS devices) in all SNEWGA events, as well. That means that USGA-approved distance measuring devices, like the SkyCaddie GPS, can be used in all SNEWGA events.
Please note, if, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance-measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect her play (e.g., gradient, wind speed, temperature, etc.), the player will be in breach of Rule 14-3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional function is actually used.
