It was a hot night of golf! The scores shot on the front 9 on June 28 were blistering. Three golfers had gross scores under 40. Mary Gauer had the lowest gross with a 36. Jenny Chandler had a 37 and Mary Ellen Jensen shot a 38. The low net scores were equally as impressive. Mary Ellen Jensen had the lowest net score with a 26. Two other golfers had net scores below 30. These were Mary Gauer (36-7) and Judy Hanson (45-16) each with a 29.

Contributing to the low scores were a number of avians. The shot of the evening was had by Mary Ellen Jensen. Using a short iron from approximately 100 yards out, Mary Ellen eagled hole #6. Now that's how to hold the ball on that green! Leading the birdie parade was Kathy Merrigan-Manning, who had three of them, on holes 5, 7 and 8. In addition, Mary Gauer birdied #1, Jennie Chandler birdied #6 and Nace Huska birdied #8. Playing on the back 9, Jane Uhl birdied #13.

Pin prizes were also up for grabs. Jen Ranney had the longest putt on #2 to win one. Mary Gauer had the closest second shot on #3, which netted her a pin prize. Dawn Kroupenske also got a pin prize for the shortest drive on #6. Taking home the dough was Ruby Plate.

Meeting at a wedding dance were Don and Nancy Scheidel. Each was invited by a separate person to attend the dance. Don, apparently, wasn't too enthused about attending, but went anyway. This turned out better for him than he likely expected. Don asked Nancy to dance and the rest, as the saying goes, is history.

What W.E.L.L. golfer who spends part of her time biking for fun and exercise, has a storied history ranging from furniture salesperson to secretary to office manager in a physician's office?
