The Bluffs Bulletin Board Ladies admire Bluffs' beauty
Another good day for golf June 30, but the best part of the day was admiring the golf course. It is so beautiful and so well manicured that sometimes it was hard to concentrate on one's swing and that is so necessary on the outcome.
Twenty golfers came to play a game with two clubs and a putter. That was a challenge to try to use a club in a situation where you had never been in before.
The results were startling, but it was still better than cleaning house.
Winners for golf were Jane Uhl, 49, Jan Uhl, 54, Pat Berglund, 55, Helen Brown, 56, Joanne Beringer, and Edith Nelson, 57 and Pat Pratt 58.
Dodie Eicher and Pat Pratt had charge of the golf ladies.
Twelve ladies played dominoes with low going to Darlene Engbrecht and Jan Chapman. High was Pat Steckelberg and Vaneta Youngworth. Dodie Eicher reported that one table had a run of bad luck with four players over 400.
Thirty-nine players were served hamburgers, etc., by Cherry Street Grille. Dessert was yummy bars served by Darlene Engbrecht and Glennis Stewart.
Pat Steckelberg and Jeanne VanBalen were co-chairmen for the day. Guests were Fran Mount and Ann Stewart's daughter Chris and Ann's granddaughter.
The #5 drawing went to Pat Berglund and Jan Uhl.
Arlene DeVaney chaired bridge at three tables. Winner's guess closest to score, Lorraine Brunick; High, Ellie Davis; First trick with 7 of trumps, Robin Eisenmenger; Arlene Devaney, sign up prize.
Seniors post good scores
It was windy, cloudy, and cooler July 13 and 42 seniors responded with good scores. Our winners had an even par 36. We congratulate Lloyd Helseth, Ray Lynn and David Bak for this fine effort.
Other prize winners at 36, Ross Johnson, Ted Van Bruggen and Tim O'Connor. At 37 we find four teams. In order they are Harlan Schott, Jim Stewart and Maurice Ericson; then Dave Raabe, Cleland Cook and Duncan McGregor; next we had Dick Munkvold, Van Pierce and Joe Conroy; and finally Mo Marcotte, Ross King and Dick Gregory.
We round out the winners with two teams at 38. Bob Boone, Jim Reed and Jack Stewart, and Max Anderson, Don Baer and Quentin Oleson.
The seniors had six birdies this date and our nominees for shot-of-the day are Ted Van Bruggen and Dick Munkvold. Ted for his 60-foot pitch in for birdie on #5 and Dick for his 48-foot putt for birdie, also on #5.
Our guest this day was John Holiday, a guest of Pete Berglund. We also had Bill Rasmussen with us for the first time this year. We hope to see you again soon Bill.
Play resumes on Tuesday, July 20 at the regular time. Plan to attend for fun and good golf.
