Chili Closer

I'm late again...Sorry
I posted the pics, but have had no time to post.  As you can see we got our chili closer in and it was not so chilly. What a great day.  We ended up with 38 golfers who headed out in 70 plus degree weather in search of birdies and pars.  The event was scheduled for 9 holes and needless to say many went out and played another nine.  After golf we mangia'd on 6 chili entries, my sloppy Joe's, roast beef, Sheppard's pie and many cookies, and even S'mores.  As always we voted on the best dish, and Jim Y. won the best chili.  Way to go Jim...(though I suspect maybe your Deb had a hand in preparing) either way...Thanks!
The weather still looks promising for the next week, soooo I decided to call for another senior open this Wed the 9th @ noon. Why not?!  Let's keep the good times rolling....
Jeff and the crew are still here keeping up with the annual chasing of the leaves. Start on the north side, then the wind shifts and back to the south, then the west then the east....Oy!  What can ya do?
But rest assured they will get the job done and you can still enjoy a pleasurable fall round at your club. Thanks to all the crew for all their hard work all year round. You guys ROCK!
Another big thanks to all of you...the members who have continued to support your club all these years.  I have always maintained that we are not just a Golf Club, but a FAMILY.
Many of you helped me through some difficult times the last couple of years, and I will always be grateful.  I have prayed every day for many other families that are going through similar situations and other challenges life deals us. Together I think we will prevail and be stronger.
K..wishing you a quick recovery..
I leave you all with some lyrics/quotes that have inspired me. Hope you enjoy.

Like an echo down a canyon
Never coming back as clear
Lately I just judge the distance
Not the words I hear
I've been too long on these islands
I've been far too long alone
I've been too long without summer
In this winter home
Still if we can make the effort
If we take the time
Maybe we can leave this much behind
Till it shines

Bob Seger

It used to seem to me that my life ran on too fast
And I had to take it slowly just to make the good parts last
But when you're born to run it's so hard to just slow down
So don't be surprised to see me back in the bright part of town
I'll be back in the high life again
All the doors I closed one time will open up again
I'll be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched me once, will smile and take me in
Steve Winwood

Be one IN a million- not one OF a million
