It’s springtime once again; which means the golf club starts a new season. We waited until March this year, so we could have good weather for our season opener at Adobe Creek golf club in Petaluma. The plan worked like a charm. The wind forgot to show up and left the sun to rule the day. No excuses could be made for not shooting a low score.

Two members who went low were Bill Wickliffe and Tom Kiernan. They both earned medallist honors, each shooting 75. A net score of 66 for Bill was enough to place him in second place, while a net score of 67 for Tom tied him for third place with Arnie Lee. Winning the A flight with a net score of 65, was Mike Ahumada.

In the B flight, Leo Tingin continued his fine play from last year, which earned him the club championship, shooting a net 61 to take first place. Second place went to Jerry Sullivan with a net 62. I guess retirement is treating Jerry well. In third place was Stan Perriatt with a net 64.

After the tournament, we headed to the Petaluma Elk’s club to honor last year’s winners. Dinner was handled by George Bruce, who did an excellent job coordinating the meal. Thanks again George.

At the Battalion Ten banquet in February, there was a problem with the microphone. Everyone who attended the banquet knows the problem. Because of the problem, some speeches were never heard. To make up for this, Al Thuesen, Dan Garibaldi, Ed Tatarian, Jim Hentz, and George Bruce honored Jack Strange on his retirement. The things you learn about some people at a banquet..... Most importantly, Al Thuesen took some time to honor Jim Fex, who recently passed away.

Our next tournament is at Crow Canyon on April 23rd. Hope to see you there.
