Gentlemen of the BTC February 4, 2021



Bowling highlights:  Congratulation to  Keith Tadevich who shot a 299 in the second game which helped him to a 740 series. Not to be forgotten is Gary Foster shooting a 750 scratch series and Bob Vizdal’s 745 scratch series with 826 handicap.  Thank god for that handicap as 19 bowlers shot a 700 handicap or better this week. High team score goes to Beggar’ OFK with 3057. Nice shooting all as the numbers keep on rising


Nothing else new to report on any upcoming event dates due to their uncertainty and also Covid restrictions. Lets hope the Governor figures it out soon. 


Larry Garetto is looking for a few golfers for the Martino Disney golf trip. Feb. 24th thru Mar. 2nd. Or maybe even some members near Orlando at that time might want to join us for a day or 2. A copy of the flyer appears later in the newsletter.

A few random golf thoughts during our pandemic quarantine:


* Golf appeals to the child in all of us. This is proven by our frequent inability to count past the number 5.

* It's easy to keep your ball in the fairway, if you don't care which fairway.

* If profanity had any influence on the flight of a ball, most everyone would play better.

* The greatest sound in golf is the, "Whoosh, Whoosh, Whoosh" of your opponent's club as he hurls it across the fairway.

* A recent survey shows that of all jobs, caddies live the longest. They get plenty of fresh air and exercise, and if there's ever a medical emergency, a doctor is always nearby.
