The Bluffs Bulletin Board Cold, windy day greets senior golfers
We had excuses this date, Sept. 30, as it was cold, windy and greens had been aerated, wow! Scores ranged from 34 to 43 with seven birdies recorded by the 32 players at The Bluffs.
One team, Mo Marcotte, Mel Marcotte and Louie Fostvedt, turned in a fine 34, 2 under par. We congratulate the winners.
Other prize winners were, at 37, Jim Stewart, Jim Reed and Lloyd Helseth, along with Shorty Hanson, Jim Grabowski, Ken Beringer and Jim Prosser. Then at 38, Dave Bak, Jack Doyle and Quentin Oleson followed by Tim O'Connor, Don Bensen, Joe Zuppo and Dave Raabe at 40.
Birdie putts earn shot-of-the-day awards as Quentin Oleson had a 21-foot birdie on #17 and Dave Zimmer had an 18-foot birdie putt on #12. Congratulations to these fine regular senior golfers.
Jim Stewart joined us this date for senior golf. We enjoyed having you with us and hope you come back next Tuesday for seniors' meal at noon and fun golf at 1 p.m. sharp.

W.E.L.L. feels nature's wrath
Bravery or stupidity was what 16 ladies were credited for Wednesday, Sept. 24.
The horrible wind and cold was really hard to take.
A cover blew off one cart so that they had no wind shield. It was impossible to be comfortable no matter what � but no one quit.
There were four teams of four. After the nine holes each team's four scores were added. The lowest score was 240 � next came 249, then 263 and lowest 266 and all ladies were rewarded for their bravery.
Cherry Street Grille served potato bar and relishes. Yummy bars of all kinds were served by Doris Mitchell, Mary Bartels and Pat Steckleberg.
We had two guests, Claricie Collins and Lynn (Groves) Weiss. The $5 drawing was won by Joanne Beringer and Meryl Reed.
Reidella gave a big thank you to Pat Berglund for all she had done all year. Pat thanked Dorothy Dahlman, treasurer and Meryl Reed, publicity chairman, for their work.
Millie was a special guest that spent the afternoon with the ladies watching them play. Millie is a beautiful fur bear Pat Olson brought to enlighten our afternoon.
There were 16 ladies for bridge. Jan Uhl won four aces and travel prizes. Jeannie Van Balen won a trick with a nine � as in golf all players received a share of the extra money on hand. Good deal.
The domino players had 14 players, Ardyce Meisenholder and Vaneta Youngworth had high. Low was Eileen Turner and Jayne Merrigan. Eileen won four rounds. Good deal Eileen. This is it. Keep up the good spirit until next year and take care.
