IRS Wednesday Golf League Newsletter

Week 07 – June 7, 2023

We are into week 7 and there are two streaks that haven’t ended.  Team Vaughn continued their winning streak as Team Halpin, with high hopes, was unable to stop them.  Could this be a wire-to-wire season for them?  The other streak is Team Zachritz, still suffering from what could be a total beginning-to-end losing season.  Make note Team Zachritz keeps spilling their beer on the floor, which in my book is alcohol abuse.  Key date on these two streaks is July 5: if these two streaks continue it might just be Team Vaughn will only fall to Team Zachritz (probably not???).  But before that Team Vaughn must play versus Team Buescher, Team Harms, and Team Kientz.  From what I hear from Ray Vaughn, this is their best start to a season ever.

Status of the Almighty Fork:

Forked Week 6 - Defending League Champs, Team Zachritz (well overdone)

This past week we had 4 subs playing:  

Restricted sub:  Dave Martin (Team Flynn)

Subs: Don Bazsika (Team Snowden), Marcus Meiner (Team Bramlage), Matt Johnson (Team Bachmann).  Thanks for being there.

 

Skins/Greenies/Long Putt 2nd half payment is due by June 21 for the 2nd half of regular season play (this would be for games on June 28 through August 23.   This will also be open to regulars wishing to enter the games (all games are $45.00, or Skins $27, Greenies $9.00, Long Putt $9.00).  Payment for games to Charles Halpin either check or cash.

Reminder on games: 1st teams out please take out greenie and long putt markers, last teams in please bring in greenie and long putt markers.  For all only those in greenies and long putt should write their names on markers.

Team Harms played versus the Vacant Team 12 this week.  Woefully they pulled Team 16 out of the hat and did not do well.  For those teams playing versus vacant Team 12 see League Secretary to pull a team number out of the hat.  Note: The 3 possibilities are Team 4, 8, or 16.

Course management mentioned again this week about slow play.  Please play ready golf, pick up the pace on the course, and limit the amount of time searching for lost balls.  There are several leagues after us, so let’s try and be considerate.

Due to the schedule containing two tee times for the teams versus the vacant team all tee times following Team 12 on the regular schedule will be moved up one time earlier.  Each week this will be posted on the website on the newsletter tab for the following week and sent via e-mail.
