Wednesday Evening Ladies League
Wednesday, Aug. 14 was a beautiful night for golf: not to hot, a small breeze to keep the bugs from landing and no threat of lightning. Everyone took advantage of the evening.
Jenny Chandler shot the low gross with a 39. Low net was a 33, achieved by two golfers, Nichol Stevens (55-22) and Robin Miskimins (49-16). Our hosts for the evening were the Rough Riders. They gave out pin prizes for shortest drive on #17 to Lisa Sorensen, closest to the sand trap while on the green on #12 to Mona Bye and closest second shot on #13 to Jenny Chandler. Two golfers got inside the rope � Lois Hazen and Michelle Maloney. A drawing was held to determine which woman was awarded the prize. Michelle Maloney won the drawing. The quackson was won by Karine Amundson.
While Jenny Chandler had the closest second shot on #16, Diane Duin had the closest third shot there. She holed out from 120 yards to get a birdie. Susan Oberle also carded a birdie on #13.
August 21 is a fun night for the league. Our last night of competitive play will be Aug. 28. Elections of officers for the comming season will also be held that night. Come out and participate (or you may find yourself elected to some position).

Senior Men's Fun Golf League
Thirty-nine seniors hoped it wouldn't rain on Tuesday morning. There was wind so we had excuses for our bad shots but no rain fell on us. We played the back nine at The Bluffs and two teams found it to their liking and turned in cards of 35, 1 under par.
A fine team of Shorty Hanson, Dick Munkvold and Harlan Schott won over Elmer Mount, Stan Munger and Ray Lynn using the tie-breaker system. Congratulations to both teams.
Other prize winners were at 37, Sid Davis, Max Anderson, Bob Lund and Fritz Bartels; at 38, Dave Raabe, Vern Christensen and Roy Mount, along with Pete Berglund, Quentin Oleson, Berwyn Svoboda and Mo Marcote; at 40, Don Baer, Ken Beringer and Cal Petersen.
There were seven birdies recorded, with Shorty Hanson's team and Elmer Mount's team each scoring two of them.
Our shot-of-the day award goes to two seniors for their five birdie putts. Shorty Hanson on hole #7 and Vern Holter on hole #15.
Plan to have fun with the seniors each Tuesday. Hospitality at 8:30 a.m. with fun golf at 9:30 a.m., followed by good food and more hospitality. See you at Vermillion's fine golf course, The Bluffs.
The final (11th) week of regular league play before the playoffs was Aug. 15, using the front nine tee boxes. Scoring was still mediocre at best as the teams vied for improved positioning in the standings.
Results for the week in the American division show best scores for Recuerdos/Silver $ and Miller Light who both capitalized on the 23-point forfeits by no show opponents; Char Bar I picked up 17 points, and Bluffs Boys garnered 13, both improving their final standings.
No one broke par as low individual scratch score was a 37 recorded by Bill Willroth, and there was a three-way tie between Dennis Chandler, Don Scheidel and Kelly Higgins (38 each). The only other under 40 score was claimed by Nick Hovden with a 39. Scheidel was credited with a lowest net 32. Craig Atkins and Al Pravecek each netted a 34. Several net 35s were reported. There were 11 birdies for the day, two each for Willroth and Scheidel.
The National division had only two teams with high point scores: Free Swingers � 18.5, who jumped from 13th to 10th in the standings, and Par Plus � 18.
Mike Anderson � 36 (net 26) was the leading scorer for both divisions and Kevin Brown was the only other scratch scorer under 40 with a 37. Joe Bjorkman netted 34 with a 40 gross. Other low net scores were: Dave Gottsleben and Troy Nicks with 32 net scores; Bob Mayer and Harlan Schott netted 34s. Six birdies and one eagle were reported for the day � Anderson scored the eagle on #6 and Brown had birdies on #2 and #6.
