After careful consideration, Lady Bird Municipal Golf Course and FOLB have cancelled the GREENS AND GRAPES EVENT previously scheduled for December 3, 2011. The effort to schedule a combined golfing event with area businesses is one which we will pursue in the future. The unpredictability of weather in December, the late date of initiating marketing and the disruption to golf operations connected with the planned reconstruction at Lady Bird lead us to postpone what we hope to be an annual event to a more auspicious time.
A lot of good productive work has gone into the planning, all of which will hold us in good stead for next year. We have developed excellent relationships with Becker, Pedernales Cellars, and Grape Creek wineries and have demonstrated our will to support tourism in our community. Many members of FOLB have contributed in a myriad of ways: graphic design, marketing, website mangement, community relations, budgeting, training, transportation issues and more. None of this would have been possible without the expert leadership of our Director of Golf, Alan Wooley.
Our enthusiasm has responded to pragmatism: we will learn from our experiences and work toward an event of which we can all be proud next year.
