January 17 - Format today in the RCB Mens Club was team play. On my 7 man team were Dave Dehn, Ron Holmwall, Ray Bieber, Paul Dunlop, Doug Justus, and Jim Clark. We tied for 5th place and got $4 each - net $1 after paying a $3 buy-in. Dave and Ron played exceptionally well - 54 and 55. There were 98 players on 14 seven man teams. I had a 66 which is not good. Paul got the KP on the 2nd hole and won $10.

January 15 - I played with Ron Gunn and Ron Davis in the skins game today. There were 17 players. I had no birdies - subsequently no skins. Ron Davis had 3 birdies and two of them were good for a skin. There were 6 skins today so I lost $1.50.
January 13 - I played with Jim Richmond, Coy Powell, Jim Klesath, Penny Pass, Trene Green, Fred Green and Barb Lowman in the RCB Couples Scramble today. Format was use the worst tee shot. We had a 59. There were 5 teams tied for first with a 55. It was an awful format - hope they never use it again. There were 104 players on 13 eight person teams. Barry Clement, new member, had a hole-in-one but did not buy insurance so he missed out on $155.
Our score card - not good.

January 10 - I played with Gary Sorenson, Cliff Pearce, Larry Vickers and Mark Thornberg today in the RCB Mens Club event. Format was individual play. I played poorly shooting a 68. Larry Vickers aced the 11th hole. He and Mark had the best rounds of 57. They were both in the money. There were 94 players playing mostly in five somes. It was a cool morning [low 50s] but warmed up nicely [mid 60s] by the time we finished. We had a significant rain fall the day before.

January 3 - Well it happened again. I had an ace on the 17th hole today. I was playing with Mo Langham, Gary Alloway, Case DeJong, Dale Green and Barry Walsh in the RCB Men's Club event. Format was individual play. The ace was worth $35. I struggled on most other holes and had a 63 - way out of the money. Mo had the best score in our group with a 58 and got 9th net winning $3. There were 97 players. It was a cool morning in the low 50s but warmed up nicely before we finished.

January 1 - I got lucky on the 14th hole today and had an ace. I played with Ron Holmwall, Jerry Phillips and Ron Davis. There were 14 skins players today so the ace was worth $6.50 - 50 cents from 13 players. Ron Davis got 2 skins. There were 6 skins and the ace today. So I netted $5.00. Linda McCrary took our photo - thanks Linda. The home owner on the 14th tee gives a bottle of champagne if you make a hole in one. It was cool in the low 40s when we started but warmed up nicely to the mid 60s.
