It was a cool, cloudy day Sept. 17, but seemed real nice. My partner and I were going to the next hole and we turned to each other and at the same time said, "Isn't it beautiful?" The course is so beautiful and we extend our thanks to the grounds crew. They're terrific.
Sixteen ladies played golf and the game was dice. The gamblers were happy again and the winners were Edith Nelson, 18; Mary Lee Hennies, 19; Helen Brown, 19; and tied were Joan Berringer, Dorothy Dahlman, Lynn Hatle and Glennis Stewart. Three ladies all on the same team had chip ins � Dorothy Dahlman, Edith Nelson and Pat Bergland.
Thirty-nine ladies were served chicken ranch wraps and salads by the Cherry Street Grille. Dessert servers were Peg Amant, Deannie Christopherson and Reidella Engman. They provided huge pieces of angel food cake, strawberries and whipped cream � almost too good looking to eat.
Our guests were Elizabeth Merrigan, Virginia Merrigan and Gretchen Ludeman. Happy Birthday was sung to Jo Willroth.
Five dollar membership drawings went to Jean Marshall and Jayne Merrigan.
Dorothy Dahlman gave the treasurer's report.
The domino players had two tables with six at each table. Ann Stewart and Cindy Chaney were high and Lynn Hatle and Joan Chapman were low. Midpoint players were Ardyce Meisenholder and Vaneta Youngworth. Cindy Chaney and Mary Bartels were caught with double blank twice. First time Lynn has won low!
Bridge players had four tables. Meryl Reed won travel prize with a 9. Other winners who were closest to score in the 1000 and up were Sarah Brown, Jo Ellen Tipton, Pat Olson, Lorraine Brunick and Marilyn Johnson. See you next for our goodbye blast.
Men post second
round tourney scores
The league playoffs continued on Sept. 17, using the front nine tee boxes. Four teams are left for the semifinals.
Bluffs Boys defated First National Bank 17.5-5.5, and S&H Construction out-pointed Back 9 Grille 12.5-10.5, to set up the pairings for the Red flight.
The Blue flight had LBA squeaking past Misfits 13-10, and Multiple Putts falling to Bogey + (8-15). As the number of teams decreases in the tourney, the scoring also is affected.
One over par 37 was the score for Rick Haught and Dave Chickering, the lowest scratch reported. Other under 40 scores were: Bill Willroth (38) and Chad Lavin (39). Score of 40 was claimed by Mike Wettstein and Gary Prosser, who was credited with a lowest net 35.
There were eight birdies and an eagle for the day. Haught and Chickering each had two birds and Lavin scored his eagle on #6.
The Men's League playoff semi-final pairings are: Red Flight � 1. Bluffs Boys vs. 7. S&H Construction; Blue Flight � 2. LBA vs. 9. Bogey +.
record 7 birdies
The shift to the fall afternoon starting time attracted 43 seniors on a warm Sept. 23 at The Bluffs. The wind was gusty from the south.
The seniors recorded seven birdies this date and nine of the 12 teams scored under 40. Good golf, seniors. Our winner this week was a three-man team of Sid Davis, Bob Lund and Quentin Oleson with a fine 35. Congratulations!
Other prize winners this date were, at 35, Max Anderson, Howard Connors and Jerry Sommervold, followed by Vern Holter, Ken Beringer, Louie Fostvedt and Gene Iverson at 37.
Then at 38 we had David Bak, Pete Berglund and Ardell Hatch, along with Elmer Mount, Dick Munkvold, Jack Doyle and Ray Mount, plus the team of Ivan Pierce, Pat Boyle, Ron Brown and Jim Prosser and Harlan Schott, Ron Steckelberg, Dave Zimmer and Joe Conroy.
Our shot of the day goes to Jerry Sommervold who drove the green on #17 and finished the birdie with a 23-foot putt.
Remember we are on the fall schedule with the seniors' lunch at 11:45 a.m. and golf at the beautiful Bluffs at 1 p.m. sharp. See you there!
