Jim Wegman, Publicity
No doubt about it, summer is here. The number of players is going down, and the temperature is going up.
We have a new Niner. Let’s welcome Jonathan Russell, recruited by Jim Johnson. Thanks, Jim, and welcome, Jonathan.

FYI: A big thank you to Bob Pender who has volunteered to handle the Niner’s page on the IronOaks website. Bob, we appreciate your efforts.
As most of you know, we are currently playing on the “closed course” on Thursdays. Although the water stations are still out on the course, it would be prudent to bring your own water or choice of non-alcoholic beverages.
As the courses are being heavily aerated, punched and raked, we will be playing with “Winter Rules,” so lift-clean-place will apply. If you find yourself in the mud or on the mud, you may take a drop, no closer to the hole, without a penalty. Balls found in the rough must be played “as they lie” in the rough.
The changes we requested for the x4 website are now in place. These are designed to make the game managers’ tasks easier and set-up and processing faster.
Remember, your chits can be used for the purchase of food and beverages at our restaurants and bars.
