IRS Wednesday Golf League Newsletter

Week 1 April 28, 2021

Good to see everyone back for another year. Bad news was we were unable to get 5 holes completed by all teams. With the storms and a long delay before we could finish the rounds it was decided by the team captains to call a rain out. My thanks go to Don Buescher for gathering the Team Captains and spearheading a quick meeting to decide to play or call a rain-out. This match will be made up on June 2nd.

For all those who were in the Skins/Greenies/Long Putt games a credit will be applied for next play. For those who played I wish to thank you as the funds were correct.

Dues/Green Fees: Treasurer Chuck Reckers reports that 53 players are current on Dues/Fees. He wishes to thank all those who are paid. 1st team to be full paid honors goes to Team Vaughn. Another 1st is Jim Bramlage for what must be the 1st time he has paid before the league started. For those who still owe payment can be mailed to Chuck, his home address is 5641 Glen Oak, Mason, Ohio 45040. Make checks payable to IRS Golf League.

Seen on the course was Larry (84) Bunkelman. It was good seeing him visit.

Team Sue&Sherrill now have a new Team Captain. Jim Hill will be the Team Captain, but team name will stay as Sue&Sherrill. Welcome back Jim.

Almost forgot to mention Bill Kurtz (86 years old) is back to play on Team Bramlage. Welcome back.

Subs that I knew were there was:

        Jeff Witt (for Team Flynn) Thanks to Jeff for short notice to play as he was already at the course.

        Vinny Castrigano (for Team Buescher) Vinny last played for the League in 2013, welcome back. He is available to sub when needed.

        Mike Schwarberg (for Team Schumacher).

        Greg Arkle (for Team Harms).

        Mark Finnegan (new sub for Team Harms).

I do want to mention about slow play. Not for sure of the teams ahead of my grouping but we were waiting on every tee box this week. I am sure without the delays we would have been able to complete our 5th hole and called it a complete round for the league. So as a reminder try and play ready golf, limit hunting for lost balls, and hopefully help each other, even opponents, by keeping an eye on where everyone hits their ball to cut down on looking for wayward balls.
