Is it really May?? It’s hard to believe that in a few weeks we will all assembly on the mountain for BRLS 2019! It is even harder to believe that Tiger Woods is our Masters Champion….but more on that in June.
The school moved into the digital age since our last newsletter and I want to thank all involved in the launch of the online registration process. We are thrilled with the first time successes and have lots of feedback to make it even better moving forward. We knew the school was popular but we were taken a bit by surprise that the school filled and the waiting list was started within a few minutes of opening. The SLT is deep into the planning work needed to expand the capacity of the school so that in 2020 no one gets turned away. Watch for a special announcement this year at the school.

Since we all know the real work of the club happens the other 51 weeks of the year we wanted to share two exciting tools for your use. Podcasts are great ways for others to share their best practices, tips, and thoughts. We are pleased to share the work of Ben Pruitt and the Chapel Hill-Carrboro club and Walter Huffstutler and the Lakeland Leaders Club. Ben’s podcast features the power of Vespers and Lakeland’s is centered on providing practical tools to help run your club. When you have time, give them a listen.
