Highlights from Navy ...
A salute to the military for keeping their promise – we start right on time, I was told – actually our first group teed off 15 minutes earlier!!!   This was probably one of the shortest rounds of golf we’ve had.  Thank you all for keeping up the pace.  Our last group finished in five hours, and that is rare.  One of the ex-military guys informed me that the starter never calls the groups to the tee box, because the neighbors complained that the loudspeaker is annoying . . .

Thank you, Mike, for a great job with the scorekeeping.  Thanks also to Donna and Alice for providing the musubis.

New update on Al Takaki . . .
Hello to all from Al. . . he is now home from the hospital and is doing well.  Since his immune system is very low, he has to wear a face mask whenever he steps out of his house or is in the presence of other people.  He is slowly regaining his strength and is taking short walks.  Last week he walked to his local bank with his face mask on and knowing that the guard was watching, Al informed the guard of his medical issue.  Bet that guard thought there was going to be a holdup!  The guard then escorted him to the teller’s window.  Funny, can you see him trying to hold up a bank??  Al said he really misses everyone and wished he was out playing golf with us.  We miss you, too, Al!!

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!!
