Clambake 2014...

Clambakes and cool Autumn weather go hand in hand, but madone this was ridiculous. We hosted our annual Clam/Steak bake this Saturday and it was hindered by weather elements not conducive to the game of golf. Oy!  We played through sun, sleet, rain and bone chilling winds.  But everyone showed and prevailed through. Only at the "the Dog"!!  Afterward we warmed our bones with hot totties and settled in for a evening of good food, football, raffles and jovial camaraderie. 
As usual we relived each missed putt, botched second shot and what might have been.  I swear I need to get in contact with A&E and have our own St. B reality show.  I know it would be a hit!! Yikes!

So... I'm still here with Jake celebrating the Browns win (YES!) while we are hosting a fund raiser for the Girl Scout camp across the street. They have retained the pavilion to host a honey tasting along with a catered affair.  The committee in charge has gone to great lengths to make this a grand event.
Amongst many details they hosted a hay ride with actual horse drawn wagons.  The only problem was when it was time for the ride to end its run.....Old Jake decided the follow the horses up route 303 as they headed back to their destination.  Bad boy Jake! Thank goodness the young lady in charge was there to escort him back unharmed.  Thank you Abby!  A first class event all the way.

So now its time to start thinking about the next to last event at the club.
Pig roast on the 18th of October, followed by the "chili closer" on November 1st.
Hard to believe the season is coming to a close...but all good things must come to an end.
But don't dismay...we're still due an Indian summer.  Plenty of golf left in 2014.
Lots of rounds before some of you head south for warmer destinations and Bermuda greens.
Hope to see you soon.
Have a good evening.
