"Where River Landing Men meet to share a laugh, a beer, and some golf."
After a long and bravely fought battle with cancer, Bill Norris passed peacefully this morning (4/21/15) at home.
A service will be held on Saturday May 2, 2015 at 2:00 pm at the Wallace Presbyterian Church in Wallace.
Our sympathies, thoughts and prayers go out to Gayle and the entire Norris family.
Bill was a member of RLMGA and represented the best of our membership. He will be missed.
Info to Know
Fellow RLMGA members,
As you are aware, a Memorial Service for Bill Norris is scheduled for Sat May2 at 2PM.
We had many requests from members to see if we could accommodate members who plan to attend Bills service.
The Board explored several options to avoid this conflict and has decided to move the Goats/Bucks tourney to SAT AUG 8 ,
A new sign up sheet will be prepared a few weeks before Aug 8.

RLMGA Play for 2015
(1) On play days theere will be a suggestion box placed in the clubhouse near where play-day event scores are to be posted. The suggestion box will allow members to make comments about that day’s play which will be taken into consideration by the Ltd’s and the MGA board (if appropriate). (2) For the 2015 season, every third Thursday of the month - from April to September - will be FUN DAY. This will allow MGA members to participate in new and unique events outside of the normal play day type of games. FUN DAYS will be identified on the GHIN on line sign up. (3) For all MGA events in 2015 - play days and Saturday tournaments - there will be a team captain identified in each playing group. The team captain will be responsible for the Pace of Play as well as tokeep the official scorecard (computer generated). In addition, the captain will select one other person in the group to keep a back up scorecard. The back up scorecard will be utilized to verify with the official scorecard each person’s official post able score for the day. This will hopefully alleviate the ongoing errors that the handicap committee continues to find with MGA scoring. (4) For Saturday tournaments, we will be modifying starting hole locations as well as cart staging so that players who are the farthest from the clubhouse will get a head start on getting to their hole. This should help to improve Pace of Play. The deadline for signing up for Saturday tournaments will be 11AM the day before (Friday). (5) Finally, the deadline for signing up for play days will be at 2pm the day before - 2pm Monday for Tuesday play and 2pm Wednesday for Thursday play.
