Gentlemen of the Builders Tee Club:
 March 21, 2019



The weather seems to be breaking of the bitter cold. And the cold can make some bitter no matter how sweet it is. C’mon warm sunshine to push the blues away.


The tennis was fast and furious this week as the end of the season draws near. Thrown racquets during the matches could be heard now and then along with some loud swearing. Al Baldermann kept reminding everyone that it was Lent. This can only mean that a good shot was made by the opposing team. Everyone is trying to ramp up their game for the final tournament in a few weeks.


 I now want to pass on a story from one of our new applicants:


Hey Kev,


I wanted to send you a quick thank you for the warm welcome for myself and the other new members last week at Mama V’s, but especially the welcome I got from Bill Sawyer. Bill called me the other day to welcome me BACK to the club. I said I was a registered investment advisor and just joined the BTC. After a time we finally figured out he was talking about my dad Bill Sr. He was a general contractor, and active member in the 60’s who will be turning 91 this coming May. What a great example of the continuing heritage and legacy of the club, and I want to let you know how happy I am to now be a part of this great “institution”.  

 Bill Lillwitz


Now that is one heck of a story. I don’t get to see or hear the stories from bowling during the winter  season unless I’m told. So call me or send me one so I can put in print more examples of what a great club this is. I hope to meet all of our new members at some point this year. So let's welcome two new applicants to the BTC.   New Applicants:  Robert Dieringer and William Ernst


Please don’t forget to vote for our fellow member Bob Kennedy Trustee in the Frankfort election in April.

 Vote early and often but only if you live in Frankfort!

Anyone with ads should email a copy of the ad they want in the Roster Book.  If they have artwork it would be great. And anyone that wants changes, that donor should email them also. 


We don’t have their old ads since we are trying to start from scratch.  I could copy what they have in the old roster book but new copies would be far better. 


Email to and We would like these ASAP. Don’t forget if you have questions, you can email questions to me. This is the easiest way to handle this.

TENNIS NEWS – Al Baldermann


12 players.  Spirited play.  Rob Rollins may need his mouth washed out with soap.  Smiling Ron Abramowitz (tough competitor) was not mad at Lilliwitz, he was mad in general.  A good time was had by all.  We hope Kevin Bewley’s knee injury is not serious.


After tennis 10 of us went to Chef Klaus’ for dinner.  Bybee was kind enough to sample everyone’s food.  Rob Rollins broke down and brought his wife Liz a full dinner.
