IRS Golf League Outing

A.J. Jolly Golf Course

 

Special thanks to all members of the league for dealing with the Covid-19 virus and social distancing enabling the league to complete the season.  We could not have picked a better day for the Outing, and A.J. Jolly course was in wonderful condition.

Extra special thanks to Mark Halpin for putting together the goodie bags.  The goodie bag coolers were donated from the Space Cowboy Group (Independence & Alexandria Donatos Pizza/Whit’s Frozen Custard and the Ft. Wright & Erlanger Guthrie’s Chicken).

Thanks go to Team Anderson (Brian Anderson, Mark Halpin, Tim Feldman, and Ed Miller) for putting together and planning the Outing.    

Missing from the Outing was Treasurer Chuck Reckers.  Chuck’s wife, Laurie, tested positive for the Covid-19 virus and Chuck had to quarantine himself.   Prayers go out to Laurie for a speedy recovery.

Thanks to Treasurer Chuck Reckers for having all the finances in order prior to the Outing with minimal registration required at the course.  We missed you at the Outing.

President Tom Schumacher and Charlie Halpin covered for Chuck Reckers on the registration table.  My thanks go to Col. Schu for helping with the registration.

Here is hoping everyone enjoyed the donuts/honey buns which were compliments of League Secretary Charlie Halpin.

And thanks to Brian Lambdin and his crew at A.J. Jolly for having a wonderful course and their excellence in servicing our needs on the course and at the clubhouse during this trying year.

And the numbers in from Treasurer Chuck Reckers is that we were within budget for the Outing.  Well done Chuck.

And my final words for this season:

Thanks to everyone (regulars, subs, and guest) for making this season and the Outing another good one while dealing with the Covid-19 virus and working hard at social distancing.  Wish to thank those who nominated myself and Chuck Reckers for the Herman Lorenz Award.  Hope everyone has a wonderful fall and winter, stay healthy, and see you all next Spring.
