Another outing is in the books, but this one ranks as a record year. With everyone’s help in pulling off this event, we raised a record $14796.28. We were greeted by Sunny, 80 degree weather as we took on the course. 101 golfers enjoyed the actual outing while a number of others came out to enjoy the post golf festivities, and to take in the raffles and auction. Flight #1 was won by Del Kreuser, Matt Schellinger, Jim Christian, and Tom Walkner with a tremendous score of -17. Flight #2 was won by Terry Marcou, Don Barranco, Jim Foster, and Ed Schlumpf with a respectable score of -8. The ladies division was won by the self-proclaimed “Wonder Wackers”, Tina Polk, Mich McCalligan, Lin Lin Emmer, and Lisa Majkrzak with a score of -3. The putting contest, which consists of 3 putts towards ten holes laid out in bowling pin fashion with points assigned like the pin number, was won by Jim Christian with a score of 22. Thirty is the top score you could achieve in that contest.
Many thanks go out to all those that help make this event a success. It truly takes a great team to pull this off. Thanks to our wonderful committee of Greg Mattson, Tom Ciskoski, John Yusko, Carol Schulteis, Joy Fricke, Terry Frisk, and Larry Barbera, and Matt Hakes. A special shout out to Matt and his company VFI for supplying goodies for our famous beverage cart driven by Carol Schulteis and Kristy Gruenwald. Thanks to both of them for making sure they saw each group at least once with their goodies on board. Thanks also to the other volunteers that helped make the day a huge success: Larry and Marcia Hebbring, Kathy Matthiessen, Laura Ciletti, Joy Fricke, Larry Podolske, and John Yusko. Their work helps put me at ease as I am going in many different directions to make sure all the details of the event are covered. Two more thank yous go out to Mike Lehman and Ironwood Golf course and Sal Zizzo, and Trysting Place Pub. Mike’s group does a fantastic job as a host for our event. With the weather cooperating, we were able to take advantage of the party barn that helped cap off a great day. Sal and Trysting Place Pub donated lunch to our event and served up some delicious hors d’ oeuvres for the evening.
Thank you also goes out to our club member Jon Cline, who came out and took many, many pictures of the outing. Looking forward to seeing the shots he captured on his facebook page once done. Jon, not only stayed close to the clubhouse for these pictures. Every once in a while out on the course, I would turn around and there was Jon with his camera to his face trying to capture another shot. The final thank you goes out to all the members who golfed, volunteered, showed up for the post golf event, or promoted the event and got the golfers there. Obviously, this event would not be successful without people showing up and participating. We appreciate all those that showed up and supported our event. We looked forward to seeing everyone again on the 3rd Wednesday in May, 2019.
