Gentlemen of the Builders Tee Club:
 August 22, 2019

  

Raindrops keep falling on my head every time we play at Silver Lake. tell my why that is please. I can’t play in the rain so I'll stop complaining. So we decided to go out and finish after the first downpour of rain. Mike Ganz and I are now free of the two- man as Rob Elliot, and Corey Rob won the match. Some excellent shooting and some horrible too, but a good match and the better team won the day. Good luck in the finals gentlemen.

 

Congratulations to Mike Breier and Joe Stein for their excellent efforts on the par 3 # 18th hole. Mike hit his ball to within 15ft of the hole, and Joe even closer. They both signed closest to pin sign for the daily game in both divisions. Then the deluge of rain came in and the daily game was cancelled. Sorry guys, no money for a great effort but there is always next week. Lee Kaz, along with Greg Lewis in the same group witnessed a mathematical anomaly. Lee tallied a 9 on the same  par 3 #18th hole. He scored 3 times as many strokes as the  score for the rest of his foursome. Believe me when I say, “Shake it off Lee, we have all been there!” 

 

Thank you to Larry Gramith for bringing the AED to the course. I now have custody of the Automatic External Defibrillator (AED). It will be at the golf course for our next event. Remember to CALL 911 FIRST in an emergency. Then locate our AED on the golf course if needed. I am hoping that someone else will step up and help with the AED committee and its logistics. Please see me if you are interested in being a part of the team.

 

The board is also looking for members who may be interested in becoming secretary for our Great Club in 2020. Nominations are being accepted and elections are right around the corner. Be a part of a club that has history since 1927. We want you, we need you, we would love to have you aboard.

 

Extraordinary Golf Fact:

 

Did the Italians invent golf? The oldest known activity resembling golf was a Roman game called paganica, played in an open field with a bent stick and a leather ball stuffed with wool. The theory is that the Romans brought the game with them when Julius Caesar led the invasion of Britain in 55 B.C.      

 

Sick and Vigil:

 

Please keep Mike Tomkins in your thoughts as he had cataract surgery on both eyes and will not be playing golf until fully healed.
