Gentlemen of the
Builders Tee Club:
||January 16, 2020|
Thanks for everyone who was able to make it out to our Annual Installation of Officers Dinner. It was a great turnout, the food and service were outstanding and it was really nice to meet some of you that I haven’t had a chance to before. I want to give a special thanks to those who participated in my first “Split the Pot.” Thanks Bob and Beggars Pizza 2 Bowling team for your generous donation of $170 to the club, bringing the total “Split the Pot” money up to $680. Just a heads up, the next “Split the Pot” I am going to take a vote on if we want to continue doing a three-way split or go over to a more traditional split the pot where it is 50/50 split.
Thanks to Tom Ollenburger our new President for starting off the night with a great speech. Thanks to Gary Foster our new Vice-President who gave us the run down on the clubs finances (click HERE for the report). Also installed were Kevin Bewley as the new Treasurer and yours truly Peter Garetto as the new “Madam” Secretary.
I want to also thank our newly appointed Historian Bob Vizdal for his interview with the clubs longest standing member Lee Tew, it’s amazing that we have a 71-year member that was able to provide so many interesting stories. I would love to get that Calcutta prize back up to the thousands!
P.S. Larry’s Hot Tip - Looking for a few good men for The Disney Golf trip - February 27th through March 3rd. If interested, please contact Bob Martino.

Peter’s Pot Tips of the Week-
Medical marijuana topical solutions.
Did you know that marijuana can be used topically (on the skin) to relieve pain from certain conditions? cannabis oil is used in lotions, balms, ointments, patches and sprays just to name a few. While more research still needs to be done, thousands of people have reported relief from the following, arthritis, eczema, headaches or migraines, insect bites, minor burns, muscle soreness, psoriasis, pain rashes, rheumatism, swelling, sunburns, stiff necks and tendonitis.
Application-based cannabis (lotions and creams) work differently than their conventional vaporized or ingested counterparts. A major perk of opting for a topical rather than an ingested form of cannabis is the lack of psychological effects the consumer will experience. Users enjoy the added benefits of targeted relief without igniting widespread effects that alter the entire body. When used efficiently, consumers can reap the benefits of traditional marijuana forms without inducing the typical “high” or psychological effects. I would be happy to talk more in detail with anyone that’s interested so please don’t hesitate to ask.
*Make sure to always use cannabis responsibly.

Tennis Report – Al Baldermann
11 players (bad number). We rotated so everyone played. The matches were good as was the camaraderie. Chuck DiNolfo (injured list) joined us for drinks after tennis. Bill Lillwitz also brought his father for drinks. His dad is 91, a veteran and a former BTC member (good guy).
Congratulations to my teammates on Tri-Star on winning the first half in the "A" division. Keith Tadevich shot a 691 series. And John Paliga had the high game of the day with a 266. Team Melfi had already clinched the "B" division last week. The top series of the day was by Carl Holt with a 712. Tom Stahl was second with a 705. Other good games were a 264 by Jack Parisi and a 259 by Jim Day (319 handicap). We are starting the new half next week and there are still 11 unpaid sponsor fees. Looking ahead, the Brocius doubles is scheduled for February 11th and 18th. And the Calcutta is on March 24th.
