The Bluffs Bulletin Board Lack of sun doesn't slow seniors
On July 6 our winners had an even par 36 and the lack of sunshine proved to be no handicap for Harlan Schott, Dick Munkvold and Dave Zimmer.
Our other prize winners were, at 37, Bob Boone, Van Pierce and Fritz Bartels; at 38, Pat Boyle, Max Andersen and Howard Connors; at 39, Mo Marcotte, Lloyd Helseth and Gene Iverson; at 40 we find three teams in order they were Turk Pilker, Jerry Johnson and Dick Gregory then Ross Johnson, Louie Fostvedt, Berwyn Svoboda and Dan Svoboda, a guest of granddad Berwyn, and finally Shorty Hanson, Jim Grabowski and Jack Stewart.
Our seniors had but five birdies this date, well below our average. Shorty Hanson had birdies on both par 3 holes, #11 and #17, as he drove each green and made the putt as well. Other nominees for shot-of-the-day included Dick Munkvold for his 51-foot chip-in on #18 and Dave Zimmer for his 33-foot putt for par on #17.

Ladies take advantage
of another fine day
How fortunate to have another beautiful day on June 30 for golf, but only 19 ladies were able to take advantage of it.
Helen Brown and Joanne Beringer were in charge of the flag day game � whoever got closest to the flag, whether it was good or bad, were winners.
Shortest drive on #1, Edith Nelson; closest to pin on #2, Darlene Engbrecht; most putts on #3, Rula Hatch, Glennis Stewart and Meryl Reed; closest to the pin on #8, Helen Brown.
Cherry Street Grille did it again by serving a great lunch, a selection of salads to 39 ladies. Lorraine Brunick and her helpers served the Black Forest for dessert.
Jeanne VanBalen had charge of the meeting. We were glad to welcome Helen Brown's daughter, Lynn, who was here for a class reunion. Winner of the $5 was Helen Brown.
Servers for dessert were finalized for the year. Prize given for perfect attendance for June went to Meryl Reed and Doris Mitchell � also two of the oldest.
There were three tables of bridge. Sign up prize went to Sharon Weber; high score to Robin Eisenmenger; traveling prize, trick with a 3, Arlene Devaney. Dorothy Reed was chairman.
Dody Eicher had charge of 16 domino players. Anita White set a new record for low of 84 going out six times. Pat Steckelberg was high with 478. All score keepers did a magnificent job.
On July 1 the seventh week of league play was contested on the back nine at The Bluffs. The weather and course conditions played havoc with the scores as no one carded a par round among the 218 "duffers" making the attempt.
Results for the week in the American division had best score for Sons of Thunder with 16.5 points, and First National with 15.
Low individual scratch score of 39 went to Grant Baird (net 35); all other scores were in the mid to high 40s or worse, except for Danny Johnson who had 40, and the threesome of Dennis Bruce, Don Harris, and George Big Crow � each with 41.
There were 12 birdies reported for the day with Baird recording three.
The National division had only two teams with high point scores: Gravediggers � 20; and Still Smokin' � 18.5; Bluffs Boys had 16, and Recuerdos/Miller Lite � 15.5 as the top six teams are within 8 points among them.
Individual player scores fared a little better than the other division but still was not very pretty. Nick Hovden led the league with a 37, recording an eagle (#15), and two birdies (#s 11 and 17). Gary Prosser, Steve Ward, and Jeremi Cowman each had a 39; P.J. Maloney � 40 (net 34); Joe Bjorkman and Ryan Baedke each had a 41.
Nineteen birdies were reported, as well as Hovden's eagle. Chris Mikkelson birdied #s 11 and 14 twice, and #15 once as he played both nine-hole sessions.
