1/24. After a wonderful brunch and the first quarterly meeting of the year, the “Rock Tournament” started in the afternoon. Although it was a team event, everyone played their own ball. Whose team member’s “rock” was drawn determined the score of the hole that was just played. You had to hope you didn’t put your ball in the water when your rock was picked! The winning teams were: 1st Gail Assenmacher, Laverne Becker, Jo Ann Hicks and Cheryl Reed; 2nd Sharon Claude, Mary Horn, Ginger Mays and Karen Ryan; 3rd Julie Curran, Pat Kreiling, Carol Schacht and Carolyn Tagatz. Thanks to Greg, Jon and Joey for creating such a fun event for us to play!
