GLENMORE: Relay For Life is a win-win at BGAD

By Glenmore Jones

RICHMOND — On Sunday, 46 players teed it up on the Pioneer Golf Course at the Bluegrass Army Depot in the Sherwin Williams Relay for Life Scramble.

After a wonderful day on the links two teams wound up tied for the Championship with scores of 14 under par 58’s.  After a score card match the team winning the most marbles was Mark Butry, Nick, Mike and Mark Bowlin.  Second was the team of Mike Lee, Perry Wyrick, Kenny Huntzinger and Chris Adams.  The Third Place team with a score of 62 was Roger Van Winkle, Angie Witlers, Ron Scott and Steve Cooper.

All the golfers enjoyed a delicious lunch on the turn prepared by Kathy Johnson. The golf course crew was able to mow the grass down and get it in good shape after all the rainy weather we have been having. Those hard workers were Andy Dunn, Ron Scott, Gene Shanks and Tom O’Brien threw in a helping hand.

The scramble committee raised close to $4,000 for the event. Steve Fritz, as Chairman, Pam Puckett and Stacie Eberle did a terrific job of getting sponsors, players and tons of door prizes and give aways for all.

My hats off to you good folk on a mission accomplished. Special thanks to Jason Brandenburg for the results.

West Side Baptist       Scramble at Berea

On Saturday, six four-person teams took to the links in the West Side Baptist Church Annual Scramble at the Berea Country Club. The last four holes they were swinging in the rain but didn’t let ole Mother Nature stop them from finishing.

Raising the victory flag was the team of Ricky Clontz, Joey Center, Jeff Mounts, Sr. and Jeff Mounts, Jr. with a 15 under par 57. Second was the team of Acy Johnson, Greg Prater, Glyn Reed and Whitney Maupin with a 62. Third was the team of Steve Riddle, Bernie Harris, Edd Harrison and Tom Harkleroad with 64.

Closest to the pin honors went to Bernie Harris on hole No. 2 and Edd Harrison on No. 5. 

Proceeds from the tournament went to the church youth group. Chairman Steve Riddle did a good job of getting players and sponsors.

Senior moment

Phyllis Diller once said, “When you get older if you can always laugh at yourself you will never cease to be amused. Well, last week I lost my car keys. For four days I searched the car, yard, my clothes pockets and looked under the beds, sofas, dressers and tables to no avail. I left no stone unturned.

The fourth day I washed a load of dark clothes. When I transferred them to the dryer, guess what was in the bottom of the washer. Those blankety blank  keys! I laughed for five minutes. I still don’t know how they got there as I didn’t wear anything black that week. Ah! sweet mystery of life at last I’ve found you.  It is happening more often that’s what scary.
