JUNE 2016 NEWSLETTER
THE BATTLE OF HICKORY HILL (GOLF CLUB.) The date was Monday June 6th in the year of our Lord 2016. Sixty men came that day to face an enemy of which they knew very little - the Fieldside Nine of Hickory Hill. The weather was harsh, the terrain unfamiliar and five brave souls were lost. But 55 men survived the battle to sing the songs of victory and enjoy a feast of fried chicken, cole slaw and baked beans. Congratulations to the men of the Central Georgia Senior Golf Association who took on the beast and left victorious. A special congratulations to the hero of this day Sir Paul Durden who conquered his opponents, captured the flag of victory at Roadside number 8 and took away the skins of two of his enemy.
BOARD OF DIRECTORS. Due to the loss of two members of our board (Michael Alexander and the pending resignation of Harvey Parks) we requested nominations/volunteers for replacement. Jack Murphy and Bill Simmons both volunteered to join our board. Therefore, at our next tournament in Forsyth, with membership approval, we will install our new board members.
CGSGA SKINS GAME. We had 40 members participate ($40/66%). Winners were: Paul Durden with Birdies on Roadside 1 & 8 ($20), Charles Ray with birdie on Roadside 9 ($10) and Mike Reslie with birdie on Fieldside #7 ($10).
Of special note:
Three additional skins would have been awarded but the members (who will remain nameless) could not find a crowbar with which to pry open their wallet to come up with a dollar to play.
GUESTS AND NEW MEMBERS. This week we welcomed two new members: Terry Clifton (Sponsored by Rick Kitchens) and Bob Price (Sponsored by Steve Roland). We also welcomed back Larry Barfield after his extend absence.
PRAYERS AND REMEMBRANCES. Please keep the following CGSGA Members and their family in your prayers: Harvey & Faith Parks, Pete Kendall, Al Lawrence, Randy Evens, John White and Joe Phillips who's mother recently passed.
OUR NEXT TOURNAMENT. Our next tournament will be on Tuesday, July 5th, at Forsyth Golf Club. 9:00 Tee Time.
