The Bluffs Bulletin Board Better than cleaning house
Not a cloud in the sky � what a beautiful blue color � that is awesome. There was a nice breeze though the heat and humidity by noon was horrid for Wednesday ladies' activities at The Bluffs.
Twenty ladies played golf for flag prizes on certain holes.
Hole #10 was for longest drive � Helen Brown won. Hole #1 was for most putts � it was three � winners having three were Pat Steckleberg, Carol Clodfelter, Dorothy Dahlman and Mary Lee Hennies. Hole # 12, closest to pin on drive, Helen Brown and Edith Nelson; #17, closest to sand but not going on, Mary Mock; #18, shortest drive, Lynn Hatle. By the looks of some scores maybe it's true that a bad day on the golf course is better than cleaning house.
There was a good crowd for lunch served by Cherry Street Grille. They served lasagna and Caesar salad. There were many comments on the lasagna. Ok, it was good, never tasted any better, and so on. Sounds like pleas to have it again, soon! Dessert was furnished by Ellie Davis, Karen Benson and Edith Nelson, yummy bars.
We had one guest Barb Oaks. Barb good to have you come; seemed natural to have you.
The membership drawing of $5 went to Dorothy Dahlman. The traveling prize went to Roberta Bensen.
Nine ladies played dominoes. High went to Karen Benson and Fritz Lefler. Low, Jan Chapman and Dody Eicher. Jan Chapman won the most rounds � six. She has a new season low of 151. It was not the best day for Karine Amundson and Fritz Lefler.
There were four tables of bridge and the number four came in play for prizes. Those who had the right type of four something won. They were Pat Olson first and second to Robin Eisenmenger, Dorothy Dahlman, Mary Lee Hennies, Glennis Stewart and Jeanne.
Come on out, the weather is fine and there is a place especially for you. See ya!

Forty-two seniors came to play golf on July 8. We had wind and clouds to contend with but still had seven birdies this date.
Our winning team was a four-man team of Mo Marcotte, Ron Brown, Joe Conroy and Jim Prosser and they were in at 34, two under par. Other winners were, at 36, Pat Boyle, Tim O'Connor, Tom Walker and Joe Zuppo along with the team of Harlan Schott, Quentin Oleson and Louie Fostvedt, followed by at 38, Shorty Hanson, Jim Grabowski and Ray Lynn and the team of Ivan Pierce, Ron Turner and Dave Zimmer along with Sid Davis, Bob Lund and Jack Stewart.
At 39, we had Vern Holter, Cleland Cook and Milo Gilbertson.
Our shot of the day award goes to three seniors with five putts all in the 25 foot range. We congratulate Fritz Bartels, Dave Zimmer and Jim Prosser for these five putts.
Seniors meet next Tuesday, July 15 with coffee, rolls and conversation at 8:30 a.m. and golf at 9:30 a.m. sharp.
W.E.L.L., what a
fun night we had
July 2 was a fun night for the ladies. Many came out to enjoy the warm weather and breeze. We played a two-person best ball with a few limitations. Each player was allowed to bring only three clubs with them � one wood, one iron and their putter. (This was done by all but those few who professed to own no woods.) To win, however, it was not enough to shoot well, but each team was asked to predict their score before they went out. The winning team would be the one that came closest to their prediction. Thus play began.
Throughout play there were a number of pin prizes awarded. The team of Pat Durkin and Mary Vlasman received a prize for the most shots into the hazard (three) on #10. Another prize went to the team of Shelley Brunick and Lisa Sorenson for most in the sand on #12. The prize for the longest drive on #14 (and it was a beauty) went to Tammy Baisden. Nancy Scheidel and Susan Oberle shot the most balls into the water (three) on #15 to win a pin prize, while Judy Hansen and Diane Duin got closest to the pin on #17. (Suspiciously, that pin prize marker was missing at late stages of the evening.) Last but not least, Nikki Peters and Sarah Taggart got a prize for the highest score on #18.
By now, those who have read this far, are wondering which team managed to predict their score with accuracy. It turns out that most teams came within two strokes. However, the queens for the evening were Pat Durkin and Mary Vlasman who predicted a score of 46 and shot (without cheating) a 46.
