On May 26 Lynn Hatle and Pat Pratt were in charge of golf. Twenty ladies were waiting to play the game of "Dice." After each hole was played a dice was rolled and you subtracted that number from your score. To roll a six was welcome.
Meryl Reed was low with 21. Karine Amundson, 23, Lynne Hatle 24, Joan Holter 24, Rula Hatch 28, Helen Brown and Eileen Turner had 29.
Thirty-six ladies were served stuffed salmon and a summer salad. Both were exceptionally delicious. Cherry Street Grille did well. Dessert was a special chocolate cake by Pat Pratt, Babe Hurowitz and Jo Willroth.
Chairman and co-chairman were both absent and Mary Bartels filled in. Membership drawing winners were $10 to Sharon Weber ($5 over because a name drawn last week was absent) and $5 to Susan Stutheit.
There were four tables of bridge and winners were: sign up prize, Jean Marshall; high score, Ellie Davis; score closest to guessed score, Meryl Reed, who made a perfect guess. Traveling prize was trick with the two of trump Meryl Reed.
The seniors changed to the summer schedule this date and were faced with a day that was not warm but cold, not clear but cloudy, not calm but very windy. In fact, most of the 38 brave seniors described this golf experiences as penance not pleasure.
The scores reflect the weather conditions as pars were hard to come by. Our winners had two birdies, four bogies, and three pars for a winning score of 38. We congratulate Mo Marcotte, Cal Petersen and Howard Connors for this fine effort.
Other prize winners were at 40, Harlan Schott, Jim Grabowski, Ron Turner and Tim O'Connor along with Mel Marcotte, Ross King and Rich Morse � then at 41, Ross Johnson, Van Pierce and Ted Van Bruggen and the team of Vern Holter, Lloyd Helseth, Ray Lynn and Fritz Bartels; finally at 42, Ken Beringer, Jack Stewart and Ray Mount along with Jim Stewart, Jack Doyle and Bob Lund.
The seniors managed but three birdies this date, well below their average. Our shot of the day award goes to three seniors for excellent putts � Tim O'Connor for a 24-foot birdie putt on #8, to Jim Reed for his 36-foot putt for par on #8, and to Dick Munkvold for his 39-foot putt for birdie on #2.
The second week of men's league was contested on May 27 with a 3 p.m. shotgun start using all tee boxes on the front nine. The league is made up of two divisions � American and National � each with 14 teams. There are some team captains and individuals which should make an effort to satisfy their financial obligations to the league and/or handicap entities. Pay at the pro shop desk.
The results for this week in the American division shows the best score for Sons of Thunder � 18; Char Bar � 17.5, and Hy-Vee � 15.5 (a duplicate of their first week's score).
Low individual score of 35 went to Rick Haught, and Grant Baird (net 30). Kory Williamson had a 38 (net 33), and Dave Chickering had a 39. Don Scheidel, Tom Schaack, George Big Crow, and Joe Villalobos each scored a 41. There were several 42s registered.
Sixteen birdies were reported for the day. Haught, Baird, Vilalobos, Dennis Bruce, and Dennis Tomhave each recorded two.
The National division's best team score was 19 by Texas Roadhouse. Recuerdo's/Miller Lite had 18, while Serious Six collected 17.
Jon Dimmick again had the low gross score (34, net 33) as he recorded birdies on holes 2, 4, 6, and 9. Other low scores were: Bill Powell, Bill Willroth, and Greg Baedke, (37 each); 38s were recorded by Scott Isaack, Joe Bjorkman, and Nick Hovden; also � Dennis Chandler and Pat Amundson were under the 40s with 39 each. Seventeen birdies and an eagle were recorded with Amundson and Isaack reporting two and three respctively. Mike Allen eagled #3.

On May 26 the outing was enjoyed by all (except Sarah Taggart who wishes to report she had a tough night.) Jenny Chandler definitely enjoyed her outing. She shot the lowest gross score of the evening with a 38, netting two birdies in the process � one on #13 and one on #17. She also bagged two pin prizes. One was for the closest third shot on #15.
With a generous spirit, Jenny gave this prize away to Kathy Merrigan-Manning as it was her birthday Wednesday (all questions regarding age are referred to the birthday girl). The second pin prize was for the longest drive on #18; this one she kept.
A third pin prize went to Barb Ballensky for the longest putt on #12. The course also yielded a second birdie on #17. This went to Joanne Ustad, who sank a dramatic putt for the bird.
The low net score was shot by Michelle Maloney with a 31 (44-13). In the clubhouse Julie Heine won the Quackson drawing.
On a separate note, your faithful reporter apologizes for an error made two weeks ago in which a last name was reported incorrectly. This is an official retraction and apology (don't want to get sued here) to Lee Ann Safar, who won the pin prize for long drive on #18. (This is the correct last name).
