KRISTIN'S KORNER

Welcome snow, welcome the New Year of 2019 and welcome wonderful old and new things to come this year at Gull Lake Country Club! The holiday season was a great success from the food and beverage stand point and we want to thank you for making it happen. The Children’s Christmas Party was an amazing time as children enjoyed sitting on Santa’s lap as they requested their Christmas wishes and later designed their own, custom made gingerbread house. Sunday Brunches had wonderful turnouts with no one leaving the Club hungry. A special thank you as well for the members who let GLCC host and cater all your Christmas functions.

 

Now that 2019 is here, let us make the best of it for you. In the offerings of something new in January, we are hosting the GLCC Winter X-Games on Saturday, January 26th. This will be a fun and interactive day consisting of platform tennis, ice skating, inflatable jousting and sumo wrestling! Parents, we will have an engaging warm fire outside of the Quarterdeck along with an adult hot chocolate bar to keep you feeling warm and fuzzy. If being outside is not your cup of tea, stay inside with us for an exciting reoccurring event on Thursday, January 31st. We will be having our Super Bowl cooking class with Chef Joe! In the month of February we will be featuring Valentine’s dinner with light background music and great ambiance on Thursday, February 14th. Come join us during these wonderful winter months as we enjoy great food, delicious spirits and most importantly, each other. GLCC is your Club and the staff wants to make it the very best for you with each visit.

 

Looking forward to the next exciting year!

 

TENNIS

Dear Members,

 

Come join us on the platform courts! If you haven't gotten a chance to make it out to the courts this season, after the holidays is a perfect time. We have several upcoming adult mixers that you can join in on or join an adult drill. The junior classes have been full of energy and excitement this season. The kids are really getting stronger at playing this sport! If your kids are interested in playing, have them try a lesson.

 

Are you interested in an adult platform mixer? The mixers allow you to play with different members, while enjoying food and drinks in the warm platform hut, so don’t miss out on the fun! IF you haven’t played and want to give it a try, or need to knock some rust off, please contact me to set up a time. I am available for private lessons or group lessons. If you are in need of a new sleeve of balls, they are always for sale in the front office.

 

Adult Clinics- Please RSVP to Kelly prior to the drill. All drills are $15. Private lessons and small groups are also available. Contact Kelly to get a lesson scheduled!

 

 Upcoming Platform Mixers- $15 per member- this includes food and evening play. Each member will be billed for their beverage consumption.

 

January 11th, February 1st, February 22nd and March 8th

 

Junior Clinics- New this season, we have been running junior clinics during the week instead of just one day a week. I have seen so many kids love playing this great game. Clinics will continue through March. A few small changes have been added to the Junior paddle schedule which will begin on Tuesday, January 8th. On Tuesday and Thursday, the Level 2 & 3 classes have been extended to 1.5 hours. Both days will now run from 4:30- 6:00pm. If your child cannot make the class right at 4:30pm, that’s okay. I wanted to extend the time so that we can get more play into each lesson. The other change is the Kindergarten- 2nd grade class will run just on Wednesdays for now.

 

CULINARY

MARKETING & EVENTS

Dear Members,

Happy New Year!

First things first, if you haven’t downloaded the Clubster App yet, I would highly recommend doing so. This is a great way to stay connected to your Club in real time. From what’s going to be featured in the Boat Bar, to event updates, this app is extremely user friendly and a great tool for you as a Member. If you have any questions or need another email invite, just let me know. I’m happy to help!

If you would like to have a hard copy of any of our marketing tools (Future Gull Posts, Calendar, Family Fun Guide, etc) please let me know and I will get you added to my mailing list.

While the next couple of months here at the Club tend to slow down a little bit, we still manage to keep busy here in the office. If you need any parties planned, food catered or just have a question in general, please do not hesitate to contact me!

We look forward to seeing those of you that stick around over the winter either in the Boat Bar, at an event or on the paddle tennis courts! For those of you who travel south, we’ll see you in the spring!
