The Bluffs Bulletin Board Wednesday Evening

Ladies League

W.E.L.L. opened "competitive" play this Wednesday, May 5, and it looks like we are off on a blistering pace of golf. Setting that pace were TWO women who shot one over par for the night. Both Karrie Plate and Sheri Ellis had the low gross score with a 37!

The low net for the night was even lower � with Shelly Brunick netting a 27 (52-25). In addition, the course gave up seven birdies. Ann Jensen birdied #12, Jenny Chandler birdied #2, Mary Gauer had a birdie on #4, Karrie Plate birdied #6 and three women, Jenny Chandler, Judy Hanson and Sheri Ellis, had birdies on #8.

Back in the clubhouse our hosts, The Wedgies, awarded prizes. Flag prizes were given to Lynn Mortenson for landing closest to the 150 yard marker on hole #1, Michelle Fostvedt for her drive into the flower bed/rock garden on #8 (this is the first time that your reporter is aware of that the host team set up a flag prize that no one could win [it was originally "Drive to the right of the cart path but not out of bounds"] and had to reevaluate the parameters of the prize in order to give the $ away), and Mary Gauer for the longest drive in the rough on #9. Remaining in the clubhouse after golfing long enough to win the Quackson was Polly Stewart.

Seniors golfers

battle winds

Believe it or not � 38 seniors showed up May 11 to prove that a nuisance wind gale could not keep them from playing golf on Seniors Day. Congratulations to all you hardy seniors. The wind was so bad it rates an awful.

Our winners had a 37, one over par, and we congratulate David Bak, Ross King and Ron Turner for their fine play. The competition was keen and our second place team also had a 37 so we salute Shorty Hanson, Dick Munkvold and Quentin Oleson for equally fine play.

The other prize winners were at 39, Mo Marcotte, Bob Lund and Ray Lynn, followed by Turk Pilker, Jim Reed, Howard Connors and Jerry Johnson; also at 39, Sid Davis, Alan Clem and Vern Christensen.

Finally at 40 we had two teams, Vern Holter, Jack Stewart, Don Bensen and Max Anderson; and also Harlan Schott, Louie Fostvedt and Dave Zimmer.

The seniors had five birdies this date and our shot of the day awards go to Dick Munkvold whose drive on #17 stopped 18 inches from the cup and Ross King for a tough 43-foot birdie put on #13.

We welcomed Jerry Johnson this date and enjoyed his wit and charm. We hope you join us often, Jerry.

Plan to be at The Bluffs next Tuesday for lunch at noon and golf on our beautiful Bluffs course at 1 p.m. sharp.

Strong winds

greet ladies

Eighteen anxious ladies gathered for the first round of golf but were met by a horrible greeting � a ferocious strong twisty wind. There were reports that the wind was so strong it even moved the ball, and it really messed up the golf swing as it was hard to keep one's balance.

But is was fun sometimes, though. Our rule for the day was guess your score. There were eight winners. Fritz Lefler was the only one to shoot her score. Next were Karine Amundson, Jane Uhl, Pat Pratt, Pat Berglund, Jan Uhl, Dorothy Dahlman and Lynn Hatle.

The Cherry Street Grille served baked potato bar (delicious) to 37 members. Jeanne Van Balen was in charge of our meeting. She announced that we had six new members.

Nine ladies were winners in the quarter drawing.

Nine ladies stayed to play bridge ��prize winners were: Sign up prize, Pat Berglund; High Score, Jane Uhl.

In honor of Mother's Day was mother with the youngest child ��Jeanne Van Balen. Traveling prize went to Mary Lee Hennies.

There were 16 domino players. Highs: Darlene Engbrecht ,Vaneta Youngworth, Lynn Hatle, Anna Stewart. Lows: Judy Gregoire, Susan Layman.

Interesting comment � five new domino players, also 16 happy ladies are easily heard.

Thanks to Pat Berglund, Jeanne Van Balen, Jan Uhl, Mary Bartels, Rula Hatch and Helen Brown who took care of the day's activities.

Let's hope for beautiful day next week. Come out and enjoy a great day. See you.
