Gentlemen of the BTC October 8, 2020

Did you know...........?  Donkeys kill more people annually than plane crashes or shark attacks so.......

watch your ass.  Did you know........In a democracy it's your vote that counts. In feudalism it's your count that votes.

 

I hope everyone is staying cautious and safe during these crazy times dealing with the virus. It seems to me that the area right now is experiencing a wave of positive tests and suffering symptoms. Hopefully everyone recovers and things can get back to normal very soon. Conspiracy theorists are predicting around November 4th - 8th, but I seriously doubt it. Anyway, please stay safe!

 

Our golf season is winding down and for better or worse, it concludes next Tuesday at the Meadows in Blue Island. There will be a little pizza party after golf sponsored by Larry Garetto and Beggar's Pizza. Due to Covid restrictions, the party will be outside of the clubhouse under the cart corral pavilion. Pizzas will begin arriving around 1:00 - 1:30 and another delivery a little later.

 

Congratulations to the winners in last week's shamble. The scores were unbelievably low! Was everyone sure to count all their team’ s strokes? A recap appears later in the newsletter.

 

Ron Miller, Nick Mady, Dan Woodward, and Larry Gramith of the nominating committee have completed their search for someone willing to serve as an officer of the Club for 2021. We are proud to present our slate of officers for 2021 as nominated by the committee:

 

                                             President: Gary Foster

                                             Vice President: Kevin Bewley

                                             Treasurer: Peter Garetto

                                             Secretary: Paul Kleinpaste

 

Our Election of Officers will be held on November 10, 2020. Site and time to be determined and will be announced as soon as possible.

 

Discussions have been ongoing concerning the bowling season and we will have an outline forthcoming in next week's newsletter about procedures, protocols, starting date, etc.

 

Tony Schlesser and Dennis Samoska helped the Army Team defeat Navy in the Inaugural Military Cup Tournament at Odyssey Golf Club. Army took 7 1/2 points to 4 1/2 in the Ryder Cup format of 6 man team fields. The celebration was 6 bottles of champagne and the cup trophy!! There was a qualifying round to make the team and 4 more rounds to claim the Military Cup! GO ARMY!!
