The Bluffs Bulletin Board

The Bluffs Bulletin Board Ladies experience windy Wednesday

We all know that if you live in South Dakota, you can expect the wind to blow most days of the year. Indeed, the wind often blows all day (and night) and changes directions during the course of the gale. Such seemed to be the case on June 29. Playing the front nine, it seemed that every hole was into the wind. Nonetheless, several golfers overcame this obstacle to have good rounds. In fact, there were more birdies this week than there have been in the last several weeks. Scoring the low gross, after a one week interruption of the string two weeks ago, was Karrie Plate, with a 38. The low net was shot by Kathy Merrigan-Manning with a 33 (41-8). Hot on Kathy�s heels was Ann Jensen with a net of 35 (50-35). As mentioned above, a number of birdies were recorded. Diane Duin birdied #3. Pam Ward birdied #8. The team of Jenny Chandler and Karrie Plate had five birdies between them. Karrie birdied holes 2 and 6 (notice, that�s both par 5 holes) while Jenny birdied holes 2, 3 and 8 (one par 5, one par 4, one par 3). Playing the back nine, Nace Huska birdied #14. Our hosts, the Wedgies, also handed out pin prizes for play. They awarded a prize for the most putts on #1 which went to Callie Merrigan with six putts (ouch!). The prize for closest to the pin on #8 was won by Jenny Chandler. The third prize went to Karrie Plate for the closest to the hole on three strokes on #9. Inside the clubhouse Pat Durkin won the Quackson. Wednesday ladies, golf, dominoes and bridge

There were 26 ladies served at the luncheon. Desserts were provided by Dody Eicher and Ardyce Meisenholder (as usual the desserts were great).

We had two guests: Beth Amundsen and Jamie Adams. It is always nice to have guests come to our event. Welcome to the two of you.

Golf report: There were 14 golfers. We played the game of �Dice� (golf a regular game by end of each hole we roll a dice and take that off of our golf score that hole). Winners today were: Rula Hatch � 15, Helen Brown � 19 and Ardith Baer � 20. Great work girls.

Golf for the rest of the summer will now have a tee time of 8:45 a.m. Please be there 30 minutes ahead of time so we can set up the game.

Dominoes report: there were 14 players to make two tables.

Low scorers: Barb Larson and Gayle Bliss.

High scorers: Ardyce Meisenholder and Jamie Adams (one of our guests). By the way, she played dominoes at another center and also was a winner (great job Jamie).

Bridge report: After several weeks of no bridge players, we had four ladies that stayed and played. It was great seeing you gals having fun with bridge at our event. High at the table was Mary Lea Hennies and low was Lorraine Brunick.

Hope have more bridge players come. We miss you all.

Thanks again to you all for making our association fun and memorable.

Senior golfers enjoy fine day The weather changed � we knew it would change, but we were not sure when. Thankfully, Tuesday, July 5 was as fine a day for golf as you could hope for � thank you Lord. Twenty-nine seniors played the back nine this date and while most of the seniors lost out to the course our winners, Mo Marcotte, Ted Van Bruggen and Jim Reed, came in with a 35, one under par. We congratulate you for your fine effort. This team had three of the eight birdies recorded this date. Other prize winners were at 38, Ross King, Vern Holter and Ray Mount; and Sid Davis, Pat Boyle and Quentin Oleson. Then at 39, Bob Solomon, Cal Petersen and Berwyn Svoboda. Our final winners had a 40, led by Roger Kozak, Fritz Bartels, Maurice Erickson and Louie Fostvedt. Our shot-of-the-day award goes to Pat Boyle for two clutch putts this date. Our weatherman assures us that we should have continued fine weather for golf during the coming weeks. Let�s have a fine turnout on Tuesday, July 12. See you at The Bluffs. Can you come by 9:15 or call to let us know you will be here? We need some time to get teams and carts arranged. Thank you.
