A pretty good day - half way done

Guys,

 

109 players yesterday. Not our best but pretty good when you consider we are in the midst of the holiday season and the weather at noonish was pretty iffy. Thanks for coming out.

 

The winning team was Sutton at 204 and they won the low score bonus of $50 plus another $50 for their ten team members. Other winners were Toyota with $45, Boston Pizza with $50, Queens with $50, Loyal Oarsman with $45 and Investors Group with $55.

 

As of yesterday Investors Group is in front with 171 points followed by Loyal Oarsman with 167. The difference is participation points.

 

The skins winners were Frank Hartin, John Lynch and Tyler Sheridan IN THE 0-5 group for $8.35 each, in the 6-8 group Bob Browne, Will Geris and Jocelyn Girard won $6.35 each plus Larry Murphy won $12.70 for his two skins and in the 9+ group Bill Coupland, Leo Lavallee and Jeff Potter won $15.35 each.

 

The KP'S were won by Rick Porritt on #3 and by John MacPherson on #7. Rick has already received his balls and a sleeve of Prov's is in the proshop for John.

 

The 50/50, highest of the year so far, was won by Bob Browne for $237.50. Thanks to everyone for supporting this.

And finally a thanks and shout out to Pete Gaudet. On July 6th the system showed that he "won" a skin on the ninth hole with a birdie but Pete told me yesterday, that was a mistake,  that he did not get a birdie that day and should not have the skin. I very much appreciate the honesty and integrity of this and want to recognize him. Because of this Ted Burgess will get  a $36 skin that day instead of an eighteen dollar one.

 

Enjoy your  week.

Half the year will be over

Hi Guys,

 

Tomorrow is our ninth day or half way. It is hard to believe a little because we have had so many "iffy" days but it really has gone quickly and really kinda smoothly.

 

Tomorrow the forecast is that it "may" rain around 5 so we should get it in.

 

The matchups are as follows:

Accra vs Sutton, Subaru vs Toyota, Boston Pizza vs SNC - Lavalin, Cownd vs Queens, Hyundai vs Loyal Oarsman and Investors Grp. vs Leisure Days.

 

Right now Investors Group is in 1st place closely followed by Loyal Oarsman. The difference is 2 participation points.The standing will be posted on the board tomorrow for you to see. It is also on the club website.

 

Just a heads up. We are trying to plan a "mid-year" meal for the league which will either be next week or the week after. AT that time we will aslo do our first payouts to all the skins winners and share the team money that has been won to date. REMEMBER the team money is shared amongst all the team members based on participation. That means that if you played more than others on your team you get a slightly bigger share of the pot.

 

Finally - I want you all to start thinking about next year and if you are interested in running the league. I am lucky that we have three guys, Peter Jarvis, Rick Porritt and myself who have done it now for two years. We need some guys to step up for 2018 because as much fun as it is we want to hand it over and just be "members". I believe that sooner or later everyone should be willing to volunteer some time.We will gladly help out to the new guys.

Things have gone pretty well over the last fours years and it would be good to keep the momentum up. John Oscien rescued the league four years ago and got it back on track. Before that it was a bit of a disaster and headed for extinction. We have tweaked it a bit since then and there is still room for it to get better. Maybe you have some ideas that would improve it further.  The key for you, as it was for us, is to remember that it is a league for "everyone", that you can't make everyone happy and that if you can make 90+% happy you have done a great job. Give it some thought and if you are interested come talk to us about the league and what it takes. In my two years I have only had maybe 3 real issues to deal with - the rest has been good times dealing with good people. Think about it.

 

See you tomorrow,

 

Howard

Worked our Pretty Good

For all the "iffy" weather forecasts for yesterday it worked out pretty good. Good and cloudy in the morning (actualy damn cold) but blue skies and sunshine in the afternoon. In total we had 116 guys come out to play. Well done and thanks for the effort.

 

The winning team was Investors Group at 215 so they get the low scoring bonus of $50 and another $50 team money. The other team winners were Accra with $40, Toyota with $55, Loyal Oarsman $55, Leisure Days with $50. and SNC-Lavalin plus Sutton who tied and got $22.50 each.

Note: Just a reminder that the etam money is split amonsgt the team members based on participation. That means if you played more times than another member of your team you get a biiger share. This is just like last year.

The KP winners were Frank Hartin on #11 and Mel Douglas on #13. Mel already has his balls and the sleeve for Frank will be in the proshop tomorrow.

 

The skins winners, six guys, won as follows - Bob Ferguson and Larry Murphy $18 each in the 0-5 group, Mel Douglas and Bill Soros $23 each in the 6-8 group and Ray Charron with $11.30 in the 9+ group plus Sid Richardson with 2 skins and $22.60 also in the 9+ group.

 

Finally the good old 50/50 generated $230 this week for David Greenland. Congratulation.

 

A good week guys, all around.

A mixed Bag

Weather forecast is a mixed bag. Cloudy and no rain, maybe thunderstorms, then no rain for a few hours, then maybe a shower and then no rain again. Hope we get it in. Hope you try to make it out regardless.

 

Matchups are : Accra vs Subaru, SNC-Lavalin vs Sutton, Queens vs Toyota, Boston Pizza vs Loyal Oarsman, Cowan Ins. Ins. Leisure Days and Hyundai vs Investors Grp.

 

Remember to play them down and putt them put/ I don't want to disqualify anyone but will if need to.

Pay your $5 weekly fee before you play or your score won't count.

 

Participation points are making a difference when the teams are close in the standings.ie. the difference between 1st and 2nd place is the 3 extra participation points and the 4th place team has 10 more participation points than the 5th place team.

Information about the standings is on the bulletin board outside the proshop.

 

Hope to see you tomorrow,

 

Howard
