My congratulations go out to all the Wild Card winners, Division winners, and League Champions.  Special congratulations go to Dave Spaeth, recipient of the Herman Lorenz Award.  The presentation couldn’t have been better with him walking in the door to all the cheers and applause.  Talking to him afterwards he was so excited to receive this award and also talk about Herm Lorenz.   

Jerry Joesting MVP award winner Donna Caporale had to leave to play more golf and couldn’t be there for the award ceremony.  From what I can tell she is the first female to receive the MVP for the league.  Congratulations Donna.

As for the Outing, I think that was the hottest one I have ever played.  Hope everyone enjoyed the day beside the heat.  I did play my best round ever at A.J. Jolly and win my first Skin and Flight, but couldn’t quite empty the last beer barrel.

Nomination and Election of Officers for 2015 was held.  Nominated, Seconded, and by unanimous vote were: 

Secretary – Charles Halpin

Treasurer – Chuck Reckers

President – Tom Schumacher  

A few other things of interest that I received by email recently:

This one was posted at the Outing with pictures, submitted by a reliable anonymous media source. 

Longtime golf partners not saying much after brief altercation

California, Ohio -- During the annual IRS league scramble, at the number 7 tee box, Team Schumacher had a crisis. Clyde Barnes took a driver to team captain Tom Schumacher's head.  It caught him right behind the left ear and Tom went down like a sack of sand. "I just couldn't take it anymore," Clyde was heard shouting to the heavens.

On a positive note, Tom did seem to play better down the stretch, even though he didn’t have any re-printable comments.

When asked why he did it, Clyde responded, "Thirty years playing with Tom, this was a long time coming. I'll leave it at that."

The secretary’s thoughts on this incident:

Was this an assassination attempt on the League President!!!  Is the Secretary next!!!

If Clyde needs a good lawyer and judge (JAG) the league has one.  See Colonel Tom Schu. I’m sure he might help you.

Thanks to Chris Kerns for the input.  Hope Clyde doesn’t go after the reporter, but I will keep your name anonymous.

Did You Know (thoughts from the rattled head of President Tom Schumacher)

 

Camels can go up to six or seven months without drinking water.  They get liquids from plants they eat and energy from the fat in their humps.

Secretary thoughts:  Guess I am not a camel since I can’t go six or seven holes without a beer.

And one last thing over email:

 

One day, shortly after joining the PGA tour in 1965, Lee Trevino, a professional golfer and married man, was at his home in Dallas, Texas, mowing his front lawn, as he always did.
A lady driving by in a big, shiny Cadillac stopped in front of his house, lowered the window and asked, “Excuse me, do you speak English?"
Lee responded, “Yes Ma'am, I do."
The lady then asked, “What do you charge to do yard work?”
Lee said, "Well, the lady in this house lets me sleep with her."
The lady hurriedly put the car into gear and sped off.
