Today I played with the Valley Costal Senior Golf League [Valco] at
Ocean Dunes Golf Links. Format was a scramble. My partners were
Irv Elliott, Todd Haglund and Steve Johnson. We had a 67 and
were tied for 4th but lost a 'card off' - so we won nothing. I
joined this group exactly 2 years ago and played with Irv then.
There were 13, four man teams. Two teams were tied at 63, one
had a 65 and 5 teams had 67. We needed to make one more birdie
to be in the money. Ocean Dunes GL is owned by the local Indian
Three Rivers Casino. The par 71 course is built on the
costal sand dunes. Click

serviced for a couple years. It provides heat to the coach as well
as on demand hot water. Total cost: $1,342.20. Dave and Lisa Hill
provided tacos. They are the managers of the resort and it was Taco

When I left the desert the radiator had failed and allowed water
into the transmission. It caused the transmission to fail. Service
Advisor, Matt O’Brien is pictured with the new transmission. Service
Technician, Jason did the repair work. It took him 12 hours. The
transmission was built in Michigan and shipped via FedEx to Coburg.
It weights 950 pounds. It cost $6,883.14. Total cost parts and labor
was $9,210.30. Paul Williams let me stay in his coach last night
