A new scoring system is in effect for 2002. Match is worth two points (one for each session), medal is worth two points (one for each session), each hole won is worth one point (nine per session), and one point added for total medal � 23 points available each week. Ties will be worth one-half point per team.
Note: This is a handicap league and every player must have a GHIN handicap number.
The May 19 team scramble was pretty much a bust, with the weather refusing to cooperate. Only six or seven teams out of a potential 32 teams played, and only five turned in a scorecard, so the winner-take-all, with a score of 29 (including birdies on all but #4 and #8), was the Bluffs Boys Team! Brunick Furniture had a 30 (with an eagle on #6).
Senior Men's Fun Golf League
The sun was shining and the wind was blowing so things were better for golf on May 14. The course mastered the eager seniors as the best score turned in this date was a 38 by the team of Don Baer, Ray Lynn, Bill Rasmussen and Denny Duin.
Our other prize winners were, at 38, Ken Beringer, Quentin Larson, and Dick Munkvold; at 39, Pete Berglund, Ivan Pierce, and Howard Connors; at 40, Sid Davis, Cal Petersen, and Jack Stewart, along with Mo Marcotte, Quentin Oleson, and Vern Christensen, and a four-man team of Ron Brown, Mel Marcotte, Berwyn Svoboda, and Jim Prosser.
There were five birdies this date with Mo Marcotte's team claiming birdies on #12 and #18. Pete Berglund's team got theirs on #15 while Elmer Mount's team and Ross Johnson's team claimed their birdie on #12.
Our shot of the day awards go to two seniors for excellent putts. Both were made on #12 with Ross Johnson claiming honors with a 70-foot putt and Jim Reed had one of 68 feet. Good work, men. We greeted Mo Marcotte and Denny Duin as they played this date. We also had a visit with Loren Carlson following his return from the hospital. We hope to see Loren back on the course soon. Next week we have the same schedule with coffee and donuts served at 8:30 a.m. and senior golf at 9:30 a.m. We hope to see you there.
Wednesday Ladies Golf, Bridge and Dominoes
No golf on May 1 but a cool day May 8 didn't stop 13 ladies from playing. Thelma Raines and Jan Uhl explained the game: Bingo-Bango-Bongo. Points were given to players � Bingo-first one to land her ball on the green � Bango-the one closest to the pin � Bongo-first in the cup.
Winners were Roberta Benson, Lynne Hatle, Karine Amundson, Jan Uhl, Edith Nelson, Jane Uhl, Karon Benson, Pat Berglund and Helen Brown.
The Cherry Street Grille served a delicious chicken hot dish and salad to 39 ladies. Dessert bars were made by Lorraine Brunick and Pat Olson. The Lucky $5 winners were Robin Eisenmenger and Reidella Engman.
There were four tables of bridge � Pat Berglund won the traveling prize and Sarah Brown's score of 2900 was closest to the blind bogie score of 3010. Meryl Reed was high with 4410 and other winners were June Wagner, Arlene DeVany, Reidella Engman, Glennis Stewart and Robin Eisenmenger.
Come join us at The Bluffs. It is a fun way to spend a Wednesday.
