It is with a great degree of sadness that we announce the passing of Mike Dolan.  As you know, he had courageously battled cancer for almost a year before the disease took him.  Our condolences go out to his family, friends, and everyone who knew him.  His love of life, family, and golf of course, combined with his dedication to our user community will be missed.

We also wanted to announce the departure of Ron Rich from the board.  Ron had told the board that he was stepping down from the position of Treasurer in early September.  We wanted to ensure everyone got the chance to say thank you to him for his many years of service and contributions to our group. 

What does this mean to our organization?  Number one, I will be assuming the position of President at this time.  I will do everything I can to ensure the continuity of the NOPUG group.  Number two, Joe Baiera has agreed to take on the duties of Treasurer.  I’m sure he will do a great job!  Ajit Singh will remain as the organization’s Secretary, a position he has excelled in.

We will be looking for two NOPUG members who would be interested in joining the board.  If you would be interested in joining us in supporting our group please contact the board, either in person or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

More information will be provided at the upcoming November 6th meeting.  The link enabling registration for the November meeting has been activated and instructions on how to register for the meeting can be found on this page as well as via the Meetings link on the site.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience as we transition going forward.
