Feedback Requested on 2014 MCA Championship Date

As we prepare for the 2014 MCA Tour, I would like to get member feedback on the concept of setting the annual MCA Championship tournament for the second weekend after Labor Day going forward. For 2014, that would be the weekend of September 13. The idea with this concept is that the tournament would fall on that weekend each year and all members could plan well ahead for the date.

This will be an agenda item at the 2014 AGM, so if you are unable to attend and you want to voice your opinion, please let me know in advance by e-mailing me at
