Tom, I can confirm an answer to #1 is yes. That being said, the committee has a chair, so there is a single point of contact still.
I'm not sure about the question to #2. the VP's of the respective states are in charge of getting course committee chairs together. We have not approved the chairs.
I don't know if the BoD, either itself or with a "league" committee, or the course committees will be in charge of handling who runs the various leagues throughout town. I think that the easiest way to do it at the current moment would be to let the course committees handle it, but I think it's worth considering to have a separate committee that runs leagues, and a committee for each course that's in charge of the course itself.
All good questions Tom, and worth talking about. Since you've run league for a number of years and have a lot of experience in this, do you wish to expound on anything?
