Victor Recap ...
It was a picture perfect day, and 77 eager golfers descended
on Victor Hills East this past Friday, August 29th. We were greeted by a
fabulous spread, which got our day off to a great start, and were treated
again on the turn with many more healthy (and sinful) treats. The weather
was great and spirits were high, the fast greens; annoying woods and hard sand
traps not withstanding. Of note, Helen Saunders spent a lot of time
looking for her ball in the woods on the 9th hole, only to discover it was in
the hole - which gave her an Eagle! (I'd love to see one of
those!)... Lisa Valbergs had a chip-in over water and sand on her
1st hole, and Gail Gengo had a birdie on Hole 8. Barb Huckle hit the pin
on the Par 3 13th hole and landed 3' 7" from the hole - giving her a
birdie! Luisa Sam had a ho-hum birdie (smile).... on the 8th hole, and
Pat Apton chipped in for a Jingleberry (what's a Jingleberry?). Of
course, on the down side, I got my exercise in for the day on that (bleep -
bleep) 7th hole where my ball jumped the creek and landed in the deep rough and
then on my next shot, hit the rocks in front of the green and landed in the
creek - what fun! I'm sure there were many, many more stories out there,
but these were the only ones our scouts were able to capture before everyone
left. Oh well... It was still a great day, and we're all looking forward
to doing it again next year! I hope this account gives those who couldn't
make it this year the incentive to hold Friday, August 21st, 2015 for next
year's tournament. Thanks everyone, for making this another memorable event! Submitted by Sylvia
