Gentlemen of the
Builders Tee Club:
||January 2, 2020|
Let me start off by saying I hope you all had a great New Year’s, a happy Hanukkah, a Joyous Kwanzaa, and oh yeah a Merry Christmas. I wish you all a year filled with happiness and good health. I want to thank all of you for welcoming me into the BTC as your new secretary. Being able to be a part of this group brings me a lot of pride. Not only am I following in the footsteps of my Uncle Peter, as the second Peter Garetto as a BTC officer, but I am also following in my father’s footsteps. Having the opportunity to golf and bowl with you every week has truly made me into a better person. I am eager to continue the ideas stated in our “Builders Tee Club Creed.” As Secretary I will continue to promote a place where we continue spreading the “friendly, cooperative spirit” the club has always had.
I will do so by always being open and receptive to any ideas you may have. I encourage all of you to please come to me with suggestions and ideas - any are always appreciated. Although I haven’t had the pleasure of writing many newsletters in the past (or any type of letters to be honest) I am excited to write the best newsletter I possibly can. My goal is to have the newsletters get better every week and to get as many members interested and reading it as possible. I am interested to hear about things that were done in the past, things that you would like to change, or any ideas or critiques so please feel free to reach out to me at Petergaretto@gmail.com or text me at 708-712-6493 (please include your name when texting so I can know who it is!) I will also be bringing a suggestion box to the weekly bowling and golf outings, so feel free to put any notes in there as well. Looking forward to a great 2020!
We will be installing officers at the BTC Annual Meeting on Tuesday, January 14th at the Silver Lake Country Club at 6:30pm. We will be installing Tom Ollenburger as President, Gary Foster as Vice-President, Kevin Bewley as Treasurer and myself, Peter Garetto as Secretary. Please make sure to join us!

Peter’s Pot Tips of the Week-
In the guidelines for the new treasurer it was suggested to impart my “Words of Wisdom.” So seeing as it is January 1, 2020 and cannabis is now legal in Illinois I thought I would roll with it (pun intended) and give you “Peter’s Pot Tip of the Week.”
I’m going to keep it simple and give you a basic lesson. We aren’t dealing with the same grass you hippies were smoking at Woodstock, nowadays we have options. I like to think of it like alcohol, different types will make you feel different ways. The 2 main types are Sativa and Indica. Sativa= stimulating, uplifting, energizing- best suited for day use. Indica= relaxing, calming, body buzz, “stoned”- best suited for night use (not recommended to use before a round of golf.) Some are listed as Hybrid, which is a blend of the 2 in case any of you want to feel what it’s like to feel energized and stoned at the same time.
Here’s a link for those of you who may want to learn more- https://interactive.wbez.org/2019/weed-guide/ . Otherwise, stay tuned for more of Peter’s Pot Tips next week.
*Make sure to always use cannabis responsibly. Remember, while it is now legal there are still rules. No smoking in public and remember don’t smoke and drive kids!
