Rusty Open 4-28-19
At 8:30am the scheduled start time the course was covered in 3 inches of snow. So, we figured the snow would be gone by 11 and we could serve the meal at noon and have a 1pm start. By 11am the snow was gone, and we knew that a succesful event was in the making. We ended up having 13 teams instead of the orginal 17. That did not matter, the temperature was 55 and sunny. The winning score was 11 under. The winning team had two radio celebrrites on it. The team included: Steve the Homer True, Greg Nietzel, Scott Mohr and Paul Bartelak. This team also had two skins worth $30 per man for their $5 investment and they won the closest shot on #9 for another $30 per man. All told, they each won $135pp. Second place with a score of 10 under, and winning $55 each were Nick Catarozoli, Maciek Boncol, Thayne and Steve Krause. We then paid off 5th place for $45pp. The score for Kyle Schmidt, Zachary Richardson, Christian Puls and Ed Richardson was 65. The last payoff spot was for 9th place. Congrats goes to Dave Radka, Ed Kelly, Cory and Dan Degner. There were two other skins besides the two won by our celebrity team. John Bermer, Jarrod Pietsch, Mitch Coe and Party Mike had an eagle on #12. Dave Radka, Eli Kelly, Cory and Dan Degner had the only birdie on #1. Each skin was worth $15pp. Next event is a two person flighted scramble on Sunday, May 26. Click here to register for this event.

Car Golf, November 17 & 18, 2018
Car golf had an extra twist this year. We had snow on the ground so we had to improvise. We cleared a swath on all greens from the front ot the green to the pin. Whatever distance your ball was from the pin, you then moved your ball to the cleared area that same distance, for all to putt from there. The second problem was that we could not play on the scheduled week due to to much snow. The event was postponed for one week which coincided with the start of hunting season. Consequently we lost about 1/3 of our orginal players. In the end we had 18 teams on Saturday and 10 on Sunday.
Saturday's winning score was tied by three teams at 9 under. First place was determined by a shootout from 100 yards from the 9th green with the team having the closest shot to the pin winning 1st place. This year's winners were Bill Walter, Jim Maher, Rick Brockland and Randy Kawczynski. We also paid off the 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 9th, 13th and 17th places along with everybody receiving a 12lb turkey.
Sunday the snow was gone from everywhere but the greens and as the day went on the greens softened up to some extent. the winner score was 12 under the same score as last year. This year's winning team came in 2nd last year. Congrats to Trey Peterson, Matt Roadhouse, Matt Sluzinski and Mike Ratkovich.
I thank all for participating and especially the 44 people that donated their turkeys to the food pantry.
