Wednesday Ladies Golf chooses 2003 officers
On Wednesday, Sept. 18, the 42 members enjoyed lunch of beef stroganoff, salad and rolls prepared by the Cherry Street Grille. The dessert bars were made by Helen Brown, Ardith Baer and JoAnn Beringer.
The morning golfers subtracted the number of the roll of a dice from the score on each hole and the winners with the low scores were Pat Berglund, Jane Uhl, Karine Amundson, Darlene Engbrecht, JoAnn Beringer, Helen Brown, Dodie Eicher and Dorothy Dahlman. Darlene chipped in for a birdie on #15.
The car wash was won by Arlene DeVany. Jean Marshall won the $5 membership drawing. The nominating committee reported on the members chosen for the offices and committees for the next year. They are: President � Pat Berglund; treasurer � Dorothy Dahlman; publicity � Meryl Reed; golf � Rula Hatch and Jan Uhl; bridge � two committees � Marsha Brunning, Anna Patrick and Pat Olson, Dorothy Reed; drawings � Mary Bartles and Babe Horowitz; dominoes � Mary Bartles.
The score of each player at the four tables of bridge was the difference between the players score and a drawn score. The winners with the smallest difference were Meryl Reed, Mary Ann Welden, Doris Mitchell and Jo Ellen Tipton. The winners with the largest differences were Jean Marshall, Arlene DeVany, Gerry Van Bruggen and Robin Eisenmenger.
Thirteen players played Mexican Train Dominoes at two tables. Low winners were Jayne Merrigan and Dodie Eicher. High winners were Darlene Engbrecht and Beverly Mount. The best and the worst of time: Mary Bartles for winning the most rounds followed by getting caught with the double aught three times!
Senior Men's Fun Golf League
The day of Tuesday, Sept. 24 found 39 seniors willing to brave the elements to play golf at the Bluffs. The morning was cold and then the cloud cover came and light rain fell for a short time. Everyone finished the round and a glance at the score cards showed that every team had a par 4 on hole #3.
Another check showed that there were only two birdies on the day. Ross Johnson's team birdied #5 and Sid Davis's team birdied #2.
Our low score for the day, a par 36, was turned in by Ross Johnson, Mel Marcotte and Harlan Schott. Congratulations to our winners for this fine effort.
Other prize winners were; a 38, Dave Raabe, Bob Lund, and Bill Rasmussen; at 39, a two man team of Elmer Mount and Jim Reed, along with Sid Davis, Cleland Cook and Howard Connors; at 40, Don Baer, Tim O'Connor and Stan Munger and also Mo Marcotte, Ted Van Bruggen and Quentin Oleson and finally at 41 Lloyd Helseth, Vern Christensen and Fritz Bartels.
A welcome guest of Vern Holter was Doug Watland from California, an alum of USD and a graduate of Sioux City Centeral High School.
With the promise of good weather again next week we will follow our usual schedule. Plan for coffee and donuts at 8:30 a.m. and golf at 9:30 a.m. with a meal to follow at The Bluffs Club House.
The Men's League championship and consolation playoff finals were held Sept. 19.
The championship final pitted First National Bank versus Pro's. The match result was 14.5-8.5 for Pro's, who were the #2 seed from the National division, and became the 2002 season League Champion.
The consolation match involved the American division #3 seed Bluffs Boys versus Serious Six, the #9 National division seed. Third place in the tourney went to Bluffs Boys who outscored Serious Six by a substantial margin.
The lowest gross score was a 34 recorded by Rick Haught, and a par 36, net 32 was registered by Gary Prosser. The only other score under 41 was a 38 by Bill Willroth. Other low net scores belonged to Haught, T.J. Bullis, and Mike Anderson, each with a 33, and Randy Stuefen and Justin McVay who scored a 34 each. There were nine birdies for the day.
