Seniors separated by age
On Sept. 1, the seniors turned out in record numbers. Attendance was 34, which is a season high. Gene Iverson brought a guest, Dick LaRue, who is a retired teacher of the area. Elmer Mount had a guest from Texas, namely his brother, Ray Mount.
We played two-man scramble from the red tees. The best score was a 37. In fact, there were four 37s. The best and first place went to Ross King and Louie Fostvedt, all because of a 19-foot chip in by King at hole #7, which happens to be the second most difficult hole of the front nine.
Second place went to Turk Pilker and Jim Reed, due to their birdie on #5. Taking third position was Don Baer and Dick Burbach because of a par on #7. Capturing fourth place with another 37 was the team of Bob Solomon and Fritz Bartels. Getting in the fifth place slot with a 38 was the team of Rex Huska and Pat Boyle. Breaking a tie at 39 because of a par on #7 was the sixth place team of Ken Beringer and Sid Davis.
The over 80 group was in a division all of their own. The winning team in that group was Mo Marcotte and Al Clem with a 38. Taking second place in these more mature gentlemen at 41 was the team of Vern Holter and Ray Mount, the visitor from Texas. Limping into third place with a "not-so-famous" score of 44 was the team of Van Pierce and Ray Lynn.
