IRS Wednesday Golf League Newsletter

Week 15 August 5, 2020

 

My thanks go out to Team Flynn and Team Pfeiffer for last minute adjusting their team line up/tee-time to accommodate their opposing teams. That was very much appreciated by all.

 

Treasurer Chuck Reckers reports that there are 7 regulars outstanding on dues/green fees/carts. For those that still owe please mail check to Chuck, his home address is 5641 Glen Oak, Mason Ohio 45040, or bring to the course next Wednesday. Thanks to all those who are paid up.

 

League Outing:

Scheduled for September 11, A.J. Jolly Golf Course.

This year due to social distancing AJ Jolly Golf Course will give us tee times tentatively starting at 7 a.m.

Golf, Cart, Goodie bag, Lunch, and Beverages will be $67.

Dinner - $15 (Dinner plans could change as numbers are low on those wanting to have dinner.) Plans are to have skin games and greenies (no long putt): Skins - $5 and Greenies - $3 (greenies will be hit the green and notate it on scorecard and name will be drawn for the winner).

No other on course games.

Flight winners, Skins, and Greenie winners will be paid by check in the mail.

More information will be sent out in a follow-up e-mail after we have a good count.

 

Every week I will post this about carts and fees.

Green fees and cart fees are still being paid by the League Treasurer Chuck Reckers. For those okay with riding 2 in a cart with teammates that is now acceptable and preferred. For those who said they will walk but wish to change to walk front and ride back or ride both sides, you need to let the League Treasurer Chuck Reckers know by Tuesdays 6 p.m. so he can update his records and notify the course on number of carts we will need. Also, if you are having a sub that is different on walk or ride you need to let Chuck know about that. If a player wants to commit to ride the back or both sides Chuck will update his records and collect the cart fees as part of the second installment in late July. Reminder that no changing your mind at the course.

Subs this past week: Jeff Barnhorst (Team Schumacher), Brian Taylor (Team Buescher), Brad Ferguson (Team Buescher), Carl Jahnke (Team Leirey), Mike Schwarberg (Team Kientz), Greg Arkle (Team Harms), Shari Anderson (Team Harms), Carol Goldstone (Team Zachritz) and new sub Mike Iker (Team Zachritz). Thanks for being there.

Number 6 Seed Team Bramlage

Week 15 Team Sue&Sherrill & Team Buescher

 

Thoughts to Ponder for the Weak:

This comes from Mr. Tim Feldman:

(1)  I have SexDaily ..... I mean Dyslexia.

(2)  Never laugh at your wife's choices, since you are one of them.

(3)  After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says "W.T.F.".

(4)  My body is a Temple - Ancient and crumbling.

(5)  I would like to start a new tradition at my funeral. Take the bouquet off of the coffin and toss it into the crowd of attendees to see who will be next.

(6)  Some people start coughing and worry that they might have the Corona Virus. I merely hope that I don't wet my pants.
