strong into autumn
Evidently the seniors are having more fun than is necessary because their attendance is still strong into the autumn. A total of 28 came to play on the first day of fall which is a higher turn out than most sessions during the middle of the summer. Play of the day was two-man team scramble.
The duo with the best score was Dennis Bruce and Joe Conroy with a 35. There was a tie for second and third at 37 by the team of Turk Pilker and Lloyd Helseth plus the team of Rod Tieman and Mo Marcotte. Placing fourth with a score of 38 was the duo of Bob Solomon and Cleland Cook. It was Solomon's 30-foot par putt dropped at hole #4 that secured the tiebreaker for his team to gain the victory.
In the second flight, all the winning scores were 41s. This translated into a three-way tie for first, second and third. Using the handicap hole for selection of the winners' positions, top spot went to Ray Lynn and Rex Huska, next came Ken Beringer and Gene Iverson followed by Floyd Boschee and Dick Gregory. The longest birdie putt went to Vern Holter with 30-footer at #2. Also Ross King sank a 20-footer at #3. Two long par putts made were carded by the same individual. That person was Guy Button who made a 30-footer at hole #9 and sank a 48-footer at #2.
