WVFC Panhandle Board

It is an exciting time for the club and no doubt the right time to inject new motivation and ideas into it. Remember the board is here to represent and make decisions on behalf of the club. You all have a say and believe me, they want your input and ideas. Go to board meetings. Reach out to board members with ideas. Offer to help. Join a committee. Volunteer. We cannot continue to grow as a club without your participation and support. We are all part of one team!
It’s a bittersweet transition for me as I am stepping down from the board after three years, but it’s time and I am ready to take on some new challenges. I have really enjoyed my time on the board and its been fantastic being part of the changes and growth we have seen over the past three years. As most of you know, I was very outspoken about my main task when I was elected President was to merge our club and grow. It wasn’t easy and there were some stumbling blocks, but it is hard to argue with the results. We have more players in the panhandle than ever before and we can safely say we are the most competitive and affordable club in the area by far! We are the largest most competitive club in the state of WV!
I have tremendous confidence in Kelly as he takes on his new role as President and know that he will take things to another level. Congrats to all three election winners and best of luck to the board and the Player Development Committee as you take the club to the next level!
