Mother nature once again decided to throw me another curve ball this last weekend.
We were scheduled Saturday for our annual PGA bash, but we were pushed back due to the uncooperative weather. 40 eager golfers were set to head out in search of birdies and eagles, but after a delay many decide the conditions were not conducive for their game. I can't blame them, it's tough to start in the rain. Continue on if it starts yes, but to go out in it is something else.
So the remaining who wanted to play waited while we redrew teams and modified the format.
9 teams of 3 set out and got most of the round in with out getting wet, but it started again just as many of us had just one hole to go.....ugggg. But we finished and prizes were awarded, libations were consumed along with goodies Golf mama made and fish and chips in paper cones just like across the pond. The fish and chips was a source of concern for Therese....she told me after that she had a big problem serving food in a newspaper cone!? "What was I thinking" she asked. I tried to explain that's how they do it, but she just couldn't grasp the concept. Oy! She got over it.
We have a couple of outing's coming up this next weekend, along with the Friday night couples Sunday special....Then one of my favorite club events of the year...
The Ben Kramer Memorial August 9th and 10th. Two days of tough competition on the links and plenty of jovial banter with added side betting. After the first round on Saturday we sit and relive every missed putt, short shot and lost opportunity. In between many rounds are purchased in the hopes of the other teams over consuming and their Sunday round being a little foggy. Oy! I can't tell you how many times I fell for that one. Yikes! All in all a great weekend. I can't wait.
Jeff and his crew have been overly busy again this year. Many projects were added to their many duties after the storm back in may. But one by one they are knocking them off the list and some how keeping the course in immaculate shape. I don't know how you do it my friend, you are the BOMB!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart......
It's time for me to put on my work boots and tackle some weeds that are over due for pulling.
Oh my aching back......
Hope to see you soon.
