Highlights from Brookside ...
     
Zzzzzz-zzzzzz – yawn, yawn – yep, it was a very long day.  Brookside was crawling with people outside and inside the course.  We were advised to come early due to a marathon in front of the course and the anticipated possible traffic congestion.   Thanks to all who arrived extra early and patiently waited for our tee time.  Our first group was called on time, but they actually teed off a half hour later.  With two men’s tournaments ahead of ours on Course #1, it was a no-brainer that it would be a very slow day.  On to hole #2 – six groups waiting to tee off???  I approached the starter and asked if there was a marshal on the course.  He said there was nothing the marshal could do, because it was up to the players to move.  However, he did send another marshal to stand at the second tee to monitor the pace of play.  The marshal explained that hole #2 was the most difficult because of the putting, hence the groups took longer to putt.  Sure enough, there were many three and four putts and a few five putts on that green.  Nothing is too tough for Gil -- he shot an awesome 80, the only person whose low net was in the 60s.   Out of 34 players, only nine people scored less than 100, it was a tough day. Thank you, Gil, for a great job with the scorekeeping, and congratulations on a super round of golf!

Speedy recovery  . . .


We wish Buddie Dalo a speedy recovery from his accident.  Nanette’s Facebook message:  “Buddie was towing a heavy rail back to camp and dug into sand going uphill. His car did a wheelie and rolled. His arm stuck out during the roll and broke between the rail and sand.   He had surgery on Saturday. His arm is swollen and both bones are broken.”
       
If you wish to send Buddie a card, his address is – 832 E. Denwall Dr, Carson,  90746-3070 

New Rainbow rule . . .


After the tournament at Rancho Park, comments were made about the sand traps not being raked and golf balls were landing in big, deep shoe prints.  Trying to get the ball out of them, especially with soft sand, was brutal.  It was suggested that we introduce a new rule for Rainbow tournaments ONLY .  . . . . If your golf ball lands in a shoe print in the sand trap, you may take it out and place it outside of the shoe print, no closer to the hole, no penalty.  Remember, do not use this rule when playing with other tournaments.  

Motto for Rainbow Golf . . .
I recently saw a poster that had the following saying which I have adopted for our group . . .
       
You have three choices – 1)  Give in; 2) Give up; 3) Give it all you got!!
