Gentlemen of the Builders Tee Club:
 March 14, 2019



We had an excellent turnout of 116 members and applicants at Mama Vesuvio’s. We had so many for dinner that a table was set up in the overflow room.{Or was it because they were tennis players?} LMAO!


A feast fit for an Irish king was provided by Gino and Dale Maira and their wonderful staff. They performed like a finely tuned orchestra serving food and drinks to hungry bowlers and tennis players.


The 50/50 raffle netted $600 to the club, and three lucky winners of $200 each. Congratulations to Gary Bybee, Scott “ you look like a Wayne “ Carter, and Frank “don’t call me Francis” Furman. It was good to see old friends and welcome new ones to our club.


A big thanks to all who helped out for the dinner. Jimmy Van Eck for attendance, Dick Kamin, Tom Ollenburger, Chuck Schwenn and Scott Lee for the golf signups, and Justin Kamper for ticket sales.


Opening day in only six weeks gentlemen.




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.

I would like to thank all of the members for their cooperation in signing up and/or paying for the upcoming golf season events. We made great strides gathering names and monies ahead of time. Everyone still has a chance to signup for any and all events if you didn't at the dinner every week leading up to the schedule.  We had a great start for Opening Day with nearly 30 foursomes already signed up. I suggest that you do not delay for Opening Day, because it's looking like we may completely fill up. Do not get shut out!


I will be at the bowling alley on Tuesdays collecting names and monies for anyone who wishes to do so, or you can contact me by phone.



TENNIS NEWS – Al Baldermann

We ended up with 44 bowlers and 11 teams for next week's Calcutta. There will be para-mutual betting. The payoffs for the para-mutual betting will be the following week to assure accuracy. Dan's lock & Key and Beggar's Pizza are in the lead for the second half. There are three weeks to go. The usual suspects lead the scoring on Tuesday with Jason Wojnar 769, Craig O'Reilly's 743 and Justin Kamper 721. Craig had the top game with a 279.
