We look forward to another great, fun filled year.  One of our early initiatives is to address the functionality of the website.  Internationals upgraded the site in February and a lot of the features have not been operating at 100%.  One notable concern is the RSVP system; it appears that some members are clicking the "yes" icon in the invite email, yet the site does not record the rsvp.  When you click the icon, please ensure you are in fact logged in, at that once logged in the event under the calendar shows you as "attending."  The second urgent item is the emailing of invoices and invites.  Please ensure you view your spam folder occasionally as there have been instances of quarterly statements and event notices being spammed.  These emails need to be marked "not spam."  Whether you are going to the event or not, future emails will end up in the same place.  Please help us with any feedback or concerns.

2014 Cosmo Golf Classic
Thanks to Mark O'Donnell, Joe Goken, and the rest of the golf committee for a great event.  The weather was great, Aldeen and FHCC in beautiful shape, the golf was suspect, but all in all the event was second to none.  The initial estimates have the Rockford Cosmo's raising over $30,000 in the annual event.
Welcome Rockford Cosmos!
