Gentlemen of the Builders Tee Club:
 March 7, 2019



I hope everyone had a  Happy Fat Tuesday and consumed many Paczki! Or Shrove Tuesday and freed yourself from guilt. I do need to lose a few pounds… anyway the courts are beginning to fill up with the Florida crew back. Steve Anderson, Rich Schroeder, and Gary Bybee were so tanned and glowing, no one could see the ball! Welcome home to the cold our Seminole looking friends.


Attention BTC members who reside in Frankfort:


 Don’t forget to VOTE for fellow BTC golf/tennis/racquetball player Trustee Bob Kennedy on April 2, 2019.

Good luck Bob in all of your political endeavors!  I(we) may need a favor in the future. LOL !


March Birthdays:


Derrick Bay, Jerry DeYoung, David Downey, Jim Fowler, Mike Heslop, Terry Jasinski, Tom Krygowski, Timothy McGee, Gino Maira, Michael McNamara, Michael Owsianiak, Tall Rob Rollins, Dennis Samoska, Robert Shinnick, William Slusarczyk, Bob Switak, and Randall Thomure. 


May sun always greet you, and may the heat from all your birthday candles warm up the greens for golf !




Your Secretary

Kevin Bewley




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


14 players.  Only Gary Bybee complained about anything, so it must have been a good day.


After tennis 9 of us went to Stoney Creek for dinner.  You had to be there to appreciate the antics.


A.           Chuck DiNolfo bribed a waitress to prove they once served an onion ring tower, so no one would think he lost his marbles.

B.           Rob (Big Spender) Rollins was kind enough to bring his wife home ONE slider for dinner.

C.           John Schiera was not told he could be her Father by a waitress.

D.          Unbelievably John Schiera will now be the world’s largest seller of beach pottery.  See John for details.

E.           Gary Bybee and Rich Schroeder have become the BTC emissaries for diversity by regularly visiting a cigar smoke shop with folks of many ethnicities.


         What is the world coming to?

Right now, we have 41 bowlers signed up for the Calcutta on March 19th. At least 5 or 6 bowlers said they had to check their schedules and let me know next week. Hopefully, we can get up to 48 participants and 12 teams. This week, the best bowling was by Shawn Sujka with a 739 series. Shawn also had the top game with a 279. Gar Ward came up with a 277 game and a 689 series. The division races remain close with 8 teams within 6 points of first in the two divisions. There are four weeks to go in the half.
