IRS Golf League Newsletter

IRS Golf League Outing – A.J. Jolly Golf Course

I always struggle to figure how to start this newsletter.  Well, here goes.  I’ll start with the organized set-up by Team Anderson (Brian Anderson, Mark Halpin, Tim Feldman, and Ed Miller) did on the Outing.  Team Anderson had arrived at the course at 8 a.m. to set up the registration table, door prizes, and ensure everything was ready to go.  From what I could tell this got everyone out to the carts and ready for the 10 a.m. start.  Also, Treasurer Chuck Reckers was on hand to finish up the payments and other finances to speed up the registration.  President Tom Schumacher was there early also, but I think just to fondle the championship trophy.  The weather seemed beautiful, and the course was in good condition.  Here is hoping everyone enjoyed their day.  I do want to mention how Team Anderson, especially Mark Halpin with his computer, got the scores posted in break neck speed and ready for the awards presentation.  My special thanks to the Outing Committee (Brian Anderson, Mark Halpin, Tim Feldman, Ed Miller), President Tom Schumacher, Treasurer Chuck Reckers, all regulars, subs, and guest for the great Outing.  For those who stayed for dinner here is hoping you enjoyed the steak and chicken as much as I did.  Here is hoping we can do the same next year.

My congratulations go out to all the Wild Card winners, Division winners, and League Champions. 

Special congratulations go to Mike Finn, recipient of the Herman Lorenz Award.  The presentation was given by Tim Feldman.  “A couple of years ago Mike was afflicted with a medical condition that impacted his legs, making walking and getting around difficult. Mike's desire to play golf and be a part of our League has demonstrated courage to overcome his condition. He did so without complaint, with sportsmanship, and kept himself competitive. This year has seen Mike take big steps to recover parts of his golf game that his condition took away from him.”

Jerry Joesting Most Valuable Player award winner.

Congratulations go to Jim Grassinger, Jerry Joesting Most Valuable Player award winner.   Jim’s point average this season was 11.8, with 11 wins, he improved his average on both front and back nine, and helped lead his team to the play-offs as the #1 seed.

Nomination and Election of Officers for 2016 was held.  Nominated, Seconded, and by unanimous loud vote were: 

Secretary – Charles Halpin

Treasurer – Chuck Reckers

President – Tom Schumacher  

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

Seems the president had a little problem with the secretary forking team Schumacher so early in the season (May 20 to be exact).  Seems the fork is for a team with no chance to make the play-offs, so the president says.  I think he should look back at the year 2007 and see the team he forked early on in the season made it all the way to the Finals.  Maybe the fork is what got the presidents team motivated just to prove the secretary wrong.   

Secretary thoughts:  Team Schumacher may just get forked in April next year.
