To assist in keeping our membership involved in maintaining the club, we've created a Signup Genius calendar.

The SignUp has twice monthly slots available for the following tasks:
  • 3-D course blowout: 4 hours
  • Field course (14 lane) blowout: 2.5 hours
  • Clubhouse area blowout: 1 hour
This makes volunteer service a little more accessible for those that cannot make a work party and at the same time gives Norva a way to document service hours.
