IRS Wednesday Golf League Newsletter

Week 2 – May 1, 2019

 

Week 2 complete and it was another week of missing rainy weather. 

This past week we had 9 subs: 

Welcome new subs Vinny Consola (Team Halpin) and Mark Anderson (Team Halpin).  Both are available to sub on a regular basis. 

Also subbing were Sherri Anderson (Team Harms), Don Potter (Team Leirey), Rick Taylor (Team Patmann), and Tom Berns (Team Vaughn).

Restricted subs playing this week were Ken Kostas (Team Kiffmeyer) and Charlie Olliges (Team Bramlage).  Welcome new restricted sub Dennis Breen to Team Breen.

 

Good rounds shot this week were: 

Front Nine – Jay Ackerman – 38 and Dave Gindele – 39;

Back Nine – Tom Schumacher - 37, Jim Bramlage - 38, Jim Grassinger – 39, & Ray Vaughn – 39.

Treasurer Chuck Reckers reports that 60 league members are current on dues/fees.  Thanks to those members.

Again, please be careful when marking which holes someone is getting strokes on.  Several errors again this week.  If giving strokes to someone on the white tees, then use the handicap holes in black.  If giving strokes to someone on the forward (yellow) tees, then use the handicap holes in gold.

Tale of hitting a tree and putting for 3:

Seems Mr. Mike Breen on hole 13 hit an 8 iron long and left.  Strikes a tree and goes onto the green about 15 feet from the hole.  Straight uphill, then 2 putts for par.  After team recap team Breen wins medal by 1 stroke.

Heard in the Clubhouse:

Something about Mrs. Sherrill Swann going to dance on the table in the clubhouse after shooting a 49, beating her opponent by 10 strokes, and winning 16 ˝ points.

Next week be prepared for the famous/not so famous sandbagger (5 over/under average) players.

Humor from Mr. Bill Clark (Think this might really be him):

 

A.A.A.D.D. - KNOW THE SYMPTOMS! A.A.A.D.D. - KNOW THE SYMPTOMS!

 

Thank GOD there's a name for this disorder.  Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder

 

This is how it manifests:

 

I decide to water my garden.  As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car  and decide it needs washing.

As I start toward the garage, I notice mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mail box earlier.  I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

I lay my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, and notice that the can is full.

So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first...

But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.

I take my check book off the table and see that there is only one check left. My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Diet Coke I'd been drinking.

I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Diet Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

The Diet Coke is getting warm, and I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the Diet Coke, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need water.

I put the Diet Coke on the counter and discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning.

I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.

I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote.  Someone left it on the kitchen table.

I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I'll be looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.

I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor.

So, I set the remote back on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill.

Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.

At the end of the day:

The car isn't washed, the bills aren't paid, there is a warm can of Diet Coke sitting on the counter, the flowers don't have enough water, there is still only 1 check in my check book, I can't find the remote, I can't find my glasses, and I don't remember what I did with the car keys.

Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day, and I'm really tired.

I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail.

Skins—Greenies—Long Putt

Most of the regulars and subs in the league know about Skins, Greenies, and Long Putt. For those that do not, each week there will be a sheet and a box on one of the tables in the clubhouse.  The sheet will have the names of all the regulars and blank lines at the bottom for subs to write in their names. $3.00 entry fee for Skins; $1.00 entry fee for Greenies and $1.00 entry fee for Long Putt.  Place a check mark for each category for which you are participating.  If the Briefcase is not out notate on your scorecard your intent to play and pay when you complete your match.  First teams out please take the markers, last teams in please bring markers in.
