Gentlemen, After two week-ends of rain, It looks like this week-end will be dry.  I have set 10:00 am Tee times at Grand Marias for both Saturday and Sunday.  Looking forward to seeing all of you there.  Also, as a reminder, clubs dues are due by May 15, 2017.  If you have not mailed your dues in, feel free to give to John Williams or myself.  Again, if you would like to make payment arrangements, please see me.
GOOD NEWS! I talked with Charlie Johnson and he informed me that Ted Savage, Joe Baynes and Jerry Cole are all recuperating and on the road to recovery from there medical conditions.  Hoping to see all of them back on the golf course soon!

2015 President’s Cup Results

July 13th, 2015 by lnetter
Today at 7:50 AM
POB Members,
I live in West St. Louis County. As I went out this morning to get the newspaper from my driveway, I looked to the east and could see the haze far off on the horizon. “Hmm, it’s still smoking and smoldering,” I said to myself. “Yeah, Tamarack had a real 5-alarm fire on Saturday and they are still trying to put it out !”
In case you didn’t know or hadn’t heard why all those fire engines and emergency vehicles were racing down the highway to Shiloh, Illinois, about 1:00 p.m. last Saturday, it was because Team Lindsey SMOKED Team Springfield in the final round of the POB 2015 President’s Cup. Team Lindsey started the day with a 4-point lead and ended with a 10-point lead. That is the biggest margin of victory in the history of the POB President’s Cup !
Congratulations to the members of Team Lindsey:
Al Lindsey, Rick Kreitner, Jim Pinkston, Frank Reed, Joe Bayne, Ray Howard, Gil Lee, Ron Hopkins, Ted Savage, and Jerry Cole
Proudly reported by former club President Rick Kreitner

POB Members,

Last Saturday, we had 10 members out at Grand Marais. Jim Pinkston shot 78 !

This weekend we have the usual 10:00 a.m. tee time. The weather is suppose to cool off, but maybe we will still have some who want to play.

The following weekend, we have a club meeting on Saturday, March 29th, at 8:30 a.m., at Grand Marais. Weather permitting, we will play a modified shamble starting at 10:00 a.m. Rules will be explained to those participating.

POB Members,
The weather continues to swing back and forth. Beautiful yesterday, back to cold today. But it is supposed to be better on Saturday with a high of 60 degrees!

As I understand it, Grand Marais officially reopens Saturday. We have our usual tee time of 10:00 a.m. Don’t be late! Get there and be ready to start at 9:45 a.m.

A thank you to Lawrence Netterville. He has updated our website. If you haven’t visited it in a while, check us out at http://www.parorbetter.org/ .

I am postponing the next meeting until March 29th, 8:30 a.m. We will also play a sort of Shamble that day. More details later.

At that meeting, I will present requirements for competing in the Two-Man Scramble and the Club Championship. The requirements will be a specific number of rounds and a consistent tee choice for those with the forward option. We will also have to discuss the Scratch Championship.

Membership dues are $200 again this year. You may pay it all at once or make installments. The total must be paid by May 15th.
