Last Thursday 24 players from the Muni travelled west to the Mitchell G. & C.C. to complete our home and home series against the Mitchell Seniors. The Muni seniors had a slim lead of 2 points, using the Stableford format, heading back to Mitchell. Although the rain was threatening, we completed our day. And a great day it was, well not great because the Mitchell Seniors battled back to win by 8 points, making them the overall winners by 6 points. (934 to 928). We had a number of 8’s on our scorecards and although 8’s may be good for Crazy 8’s, they proved to be our nemesis on this day. Jeff Healey led our squad feeling quite comfortable on his old course and being a multiple Senior’s Champion with 39 points, followed by Jimmy Avery (who would like to take back his crazy 8 on hole 15) with 36 points followed by Bud Dixon, John Brown and Ken Reilly rounding out our top 5.
We would like to thank Kyle Brodhagen from our course and Tim Ertel from the Mitchell course and especially Bruce Barnes for organizing the event for Mitchell. Also the cooks and kitchen staff for 2 great meals. Thanks to all for participating and as they say – Maybe next year.
