IRS Wednesday Golf League Newsletter

Week 4 - May 19, 2021

I will start this off with what I know on Tim Feldman.  I have an Enquirer article that I received from Brian Anderson about the incident and one of his life savers.  Also have a picture of Tim and the life savers/paramedics that I received from Jim Grassinger (Jim’s nephew was one of the Paramedics that helped save Tim).   I will have the article and photo at the clubhouse on Wednesday.     

Subs this week were:  Vinny Consola (for Team Breen); Matt Mosser (new sub for Team Buescher); Bob Roland (new sub for Team Kiffmeyer); Mark Finnegan (for Team Harms); Steve Ruehl (for Team Bramlage); Mike Schwarberg (for Team Schumacher); and Dave Engleman (for Team Anderson). Thanks for being there.

Heard at the Clubhouse: 

-         There was a wonderful story about a WWII naval pilot that Tom Berns gave to me between holes on the course.  For the whole story see Tom Berns from Team Vaughn.

-         With Jim Hill taking the captain position on Team Sue&Sherrill their team will be renamed Team Hill.  (sorry Sue & Sherrill).

 

League President’s Weakly Passage: 

In life, it's important to know when to stop arguing with idiots and simply let them be wrong!!!

Sandbagger of the Weak (5 or more over average)(see Article IV of the League Rules):

Pat Harms - 11.4 over                                              Dick Warren - 7.0 over

Rick McErlane – 7.2 over                                        League Secretary - 6.8 over

Jim Hill – 6.6 over (last week too)                          Jim Westcott – 6.2 over

Ray Vaughn - 5.0 over                                             Jack Snowden – 5.0 over

Previous Sandbaggers for the Weak (5 or more under average):

Jim Grassinger – 8.0 under                                      Patrick Buescher – 6.4 under (last week over)

Sue Kerrick – 6.0 under                                           Garry Melish – 6.0 under

Bill Zachritz – 6.0 under (last week over)

                                                                                            

Seems there are still a few that need remedial training.  At least this week we had some 5 or more under average folks.

 

-         I know it is sort of early to Fork any teams, however, since Team Schumacher has hit the bottom of their Division, and second lowest team points, I think it is getting awfully close to Forking time.  So, I will put them on notice.  Fork is being sharpened.

-         Team Breen at the top of the upside down Standings list still has another week or two or three.

-         League Points leader is Team Kiffmeyer (C Division) with 2020 defending League Champs Team Anderson (the Shirts) dropping to 3rd in Division A.
