Sorry for the delay in posting this week’s results. Jack Fenelon, who sends me the results, had to leave town right after Thursday’s tournament. I was hoping to get Jack’s email with the results the next morning, but they didn’t arrive until about noon when I was already out and about taking care of personal business. I didn’t get home until this evening.
Thursday’s top golfer was none other than Rick Karas who not only had the best gross score with an 81, but he also had the best net score with a 63. Way to go Rick.

Here are some of the photos taken by Richard Kohnmann at the Mountain View BBQ. He sent me quite a few, so I’ll be posting a few ever week.
As most of you noticed, we had a mix up in the skins scores posted last week. They were a duplicate of the scores from the week before. I recently received the correct scores and I just posted them on last week’s results. The top golfers of today’s tournament were Benito Tapia with an 86 gross score and Tony Merriman with 69 net score. Way to go guys.
Have a great Thanksgiving

We had our SSMGC Board meeting today after the tournament. One of the agenda items was the installment of new officers. With the exception of a couple of positions, such as the Away Tournament Chairman, most of the positions remained unchanged. More info on that later. We also discussed finding a new location for our luncheons, in light of the Wedgewood snafu, so we’re looking at possibly going to a Round Table Pizza restaurant. We’re still checking that out. For those of you who recently paid your club dues for the upcoming year, thank you. For those who have yet to pay, don’t forget to write that check.
Next Thursday is Thanksgiving. For that reason we have moved our tournament to Wednesday. We will have four groups going out beginning at 7:30AM, so if you want to play, be there around 7AM.
“It is almost impossible to remember how tragic a place this world is when one is playing golf.” — John Updike
A message from the SSMGC President: Today’s luncheon was cancelled due to Wedgewood failing to book it properly. I confirmed that one of their employees mishandled the paperwork I submitted, so our reservation was never booked. That employee has since being terminated for various related issues. The bottom line is Wedgewoood dropped the ball again, so I advised them we will no longer be doing business with them. Refunds will be available next week. My apologies to all. The Board will hold a meeting next week after golf to elect officers. All are welcome to attend.
We had four top golfers for today’s tournament. They were Ron Laufer and John Foss, both with a gross score of 85. Tony Merriman and Larry McCollum both had the top net score of a 68.

Our next luncheon at the Wedgewood will be on Thursday Nov 10th immediately after our tournament. We’ve been assured that there will not be a wedding event on that day and we WILL be able to eat indoors, unlike the last time when we were moved to outdoor tables under a blazing summer sun. The cost for the luncheon is $ 10.00 to be paid to Phil Youker. If anyone is interested in serving on the governing board, let us know. We will be holding elections for those positions desired by more than one individual.
At our Board meeting today, it was decided that there will no longer be a “carry-over” of money on the longest-putt and closest-to-the-pin contests. If no one wins one of the contests on a particular day, the winnings will not increase for the following week.
Regarding the Club Championship, I was asked to post the scores from both rounds for the winners, so here they are: Frank Allison: (gross winner) 79 + 84 = 163. Don Mulville: (net winner) 68 + 60 = 128. Murray Cooper: (super-Senior Gross) 89 + 89 = 178.
