The Tuesday morning senior men’s league at the Alexandria Golf Club plays a Stableford system with teams determined by blind draw every week. Every year we end the season with a steak fry and putting contest. This year we will have two – last night’s being the first. We were delighted to have Rose and Warren Gibson join us again – they gave up their membership last year, which was bittersweet for us because now we don’t have to “pay” Warren every week. Long my hero, Warren turns 90 on July 9 – to honor the occasion I followed him around the putting course by video, and he had the lead after 7 holes:
Photos from last night – a sunny, 85-degree, blustery evening (Aside: Went out for the paper this morning; it felt like Washington, D.C. Like walking into a hot, wet washcloth making it hard to breathe. We are under a heat advisory today.):

[We thank Donnacha for the unique putting course he set up for us.]
The putting contest winners were: 1st – Bonnie Haaven; 2nd – Dee Berg; 3rd – June Joy; and 1st – Harry Ramaley; 2nd – Loren Berg; 3rd – Roger Riley.
Since I could not improve on last year’s “one-take” efforts, here are the participants from last August 31 (listed alphabetically):

Finally, as the “cub reporter,” I was honored to have my caricature done by Harry Ramaley. He captured my propensity to cover girls sports, to his befuddlement. Many thanks again, Harry!
