The Bluffs Bulletin Board Murder on hole 11 for W.E.L.L.
Wednesday, June 22, was a hot, sticky, bug-filled evening for golf. There was only a small breeze which didn�t keep the gnats, flies or mosquitoes from landing and annoying everyone. Some insects were so annoying it led to their demise. It appears that a bee took to following Nancy Scheidel and Mary Vlasman around hole #11. Nancy did some evasive maneuvers with her cart but was unable to shake the bee. By hole #11, having started to play on #13, Nancy had had enough of bugs. She had one fly into her nose and one into her ear (it was asserted that the whole group had lost strokes to bugs). So, when the hapless bee thoughtlessly landed on one of Nancy�s club covers, Nancy hit it with another club and killed it. Revenge is sweet. Competition took place on the back 9 this week. Returning to form after last week�s interruption of her string, Karrie Plate once again shot the low gross score with a 39. This week, however, she was tied for this honor by Mona Bye. Mona also had the low net score for the evening with a 31 (39-8). Indeed, these two women were also the only ones that had birdies this week. Karrie birdied #11 while Mona birdied #17. Our hosts for this week were the Lucky Shots. They put out three flag prizes. The prize for closest to the pin on #12 was won by Robin Miskimins. The prize for being the closest to the sand on #15 (fairway bunker) without going in was won by Mona Bye (boy, did she have a good night!) The third prize, for coming closest to the red stake on #18, was won by Mary Kay Zimmerman. Inside the clubhouse the Quackson quickly became a family affair. Kathy Chandler, a member of the Lucky Shots, held the basket of names for the drawing. She had her granddaughter, Kyleigh Chandler, draw out of slip of paper with the winner�s name on it. Whose name did Kyleigh pick? Her own mom, Jenny Chandler! W.E.L.L. would like to welcome Julia Chaney back to competition. We�re glad she�s back.

Men's League weekly report
On June 24 with slight breezes and temps in the low 90s the fifth week of league play was contested on the front 9 at The Bluffs. The course appeared slightly benign as there were nearly 35 birdies registered during the day.
Results for the week in the National division had best scores for Americlean with 18.5 points, while First Bank & Trust had 16.5. Playing summer rules seems to have little of an effect on the league scoring on the tournament ready course.
Low individual scratch score of 36 was shared by Michael Billiet, Scott Isaak, Mike Wettstein, and Joel Nielsen, as almost 30 percent of the 48 field of players scored less than 40. Scores of 37 were posted by Kevin Brown, Rick Haught, and Scott Hansen. Eric Stevens had a 38, and Joe Bjorkman 39. Isaak had lowest net � 31.
There were 19 birdies in the division for the day with Isaak recording three of them, and Billiet, Nielsen, Stevens, and Hansen, with two each.
The American division had four teams with very high point scores: Recuerdo�s and Bluffs Boys � 20 points each; also, Sandtrappers and PIK� 17 each, all of whom maintained or bettered their places in the standings.
Eight players had scratch scores under 40, with a 33 (net 33 for Jon Dimmick who birdied #�s 1, 2, 6, and 9) Bill Powell was at 1 under par 35, and 36 was claimed by Gary Prosser. Brian Steele � 37; Ben Schlorholtz � 38; Chad Lavin, Brian Smith, and Kevin Limrick � 39 each.
Fourteen birdies were reported, beside the four for Dimmick; Powell, Prosser, "Coach" Christopherson, and Steele each had two.
