The Bluffs Bulletin Board Eleven ladies play on horrible day

June 16 was another horrible day but 11 dedicated (weird?) ladies were there to play. No chairman was there to guide them so they just took off. Nine played one hole but the two Pats were going to show the rest and go on, but they only managed one more hole.

The Cherry Street Grille served lasagna to 29 ladies and Jan Chapman and Jayne Merrigan served three kinds of bars.

We now have 59 members. Janet Hoff is a new member.

Jeanne Van Balen and Pat Steckelberg had charge of the meeting and there was some discussion on signing up to serve dessert.

Winners of the $5 drawing were Jeanne Van Balen and Jayne Merrigan.

Dorothy Reed had charge of bridge. Sign up winner was Jan Uhl, high score Dorothy Reed, to honor Flag Day winner was Arlene DeVaney. Traveling prize went to Dorothy Reed.

There were two tables of 13 players for dominos. High, Pat Steckelberg and Ardyce Meisenholder; low, Jan Chapman and Babe Hurowitz.

Char Brunick is the official scorekeeper replacing Jayne Merrigan at table one out of necessity. Mary Bartels got special thanks for jump starting my car.

Senior golfers

do well Tuesday

The Bluffs Golf Course was fine June 22 and the parity of the senior men's league teams was evident when scores were turned in to find all prize winners either in at 37 or 38. There were nine birdies recorded this date.

The team of Elmer Mount, Vern Holter, Duncan McGregor and Joe Erickson took top honors with a 37. Congratulations men! Other prize winners at 37 were Irl Oaks, Lloyd Helseth and Jack Stewart; and Dave Bak, Dick Munkvold and Ardell Hatch.

Following at 38 we had Harlan Schott, Cleland Cook and Louie Fostvedt; and Pete Berglund, Rick Morse, Dave Zimmer and Don Bensen, followed by Mo Marcott, Roger Kozak and Berwyn Svoboda.

Also at 38 was the team of Alan Clem, Ken Beringer and Cal Petersen and Dave Raabe, Max Andersen and Jim Reed.

We had many nominees for shot-of-the-day: Joe Erickson for a 90-foot chip-in on #16 for a birdie; Louie Fostvedt had a 45-foot chip-in on #16 for a birdie; Howard Connors for a 36-foot birdie downhill putt on #16; Roger Kozak for a 25-foot birdie putt on #15; Ray Mount for a 25-foot birdie putt on #13; and Vern Christensen for a 20-foot birdie putt on #13.

We welcomed Joe Erickson and Marvin Walz as first time senior players and greeted Irl Oaks, a long-time senior golfer, who is visiting from Arizona.

It was nice to have you with us.

Play will resume June 29. We hope you can arrive in time to be placed on a team.
