Breezy Point Par-Tee News by Marion Lynch
Mother Nature was very kind to the PAR-TEE Players as she generously threw in a cooling breeze to balance off the immense heat and humidity. There were plenty of hot clubs though, as four of the players, Barbara Caramelli, Doris Neimeth, Eileen Watson and Pam Armour, started off with a grand slam of 61. Joan McNally scored 65; Tess Kearney, Peggy Ansbro and Nancy Heffernan all had 66 and Lynn Canavan a 69.
Mildred Seligman narrowly missed the 60’s, ending up with a 70; Terry Gearity and Pat Disch both scored 71. Anne Prior, Anne Lane and Marge Driscoll shared 73. Joan Fallon and Muriel Hellreigel scored 74. While 75 certainly was the most popular score with Evelyn Gannon, Mary Ellen Hogan, Mary O’Rourke, Peggy Joyce and Maureen Ris all sharing the limelight.
Inez Moriarty, Evie Mcveigh, Mildred Duffy and Marie Alleva all checked in with 76. While Lil Keim, Sally Fitzpatrick, Tina Spina and Betty GaNun were happy with 77. Rounding out the 70’s was Dotty Dunne with 78. Kudos to all the girls… they really "sweated" out the game.
Birdies were scored by Nancy Heffernan on the 2nd hole. Mary Kamper on the 5th. Doris Neimeth, Eileen Watson and Marge Driscoll on the 7th. Lynn Canavan on the 11th. Peggy Ansbro, the 12th. Joan McNally scored birdies on the 13th and Barbara Caramelli on the 1st.
In addition, Barbara also had a birdie-chip-in on the 12th hole, Evie Mcveigh on the 16th, and Mildred Seligman on the 6th. Chip-ins were also made by Anne Prior on the 3rd and Sally Fitzpatrick and Ann Powers on the 18th. All of the "chip-inners" shared in the pot of gold.
Meanwhile, back at the Club, our reception committee had the cool drinks and luncheon ready. Thanks to Al Neimeth, Frank Tropea and Bob Kimmeth who couldn’t work fast enough for all the thirsty players. Mary Sullivan read out the low scores, birdies and chip-ins of the day, and then proceeded to the serious business.
There are special "get-well" wishes to Pat Wheeler, who is recovering from surgery and also to Helen Curlin, who is still having serious problems. Communion hosts from the PAR-TEE ladies will be sponsored at our churches during the month of August in memory of Donald Murphy, son of Mildred and Timmy. Please keep them all in your prayers.
Inez Moriarty won the 50-50 drawing this week, and the weekly special prize of $25 was captured by that really lucky lady, Tina Spina! Again, it was especially nice that Tina was present as that is a requirement for winning. Mary Kamper filled in on the Hunterdon Playhouse. If you haven’t done so, pick a partner for another sortie with the guys! Their tournament is August 15th with luncheon following. It’s always a great day, and those guys are waiting!
That about ends our column. However, remember that the days are quickly "dwindling down to a precious few…" so do get your game count. Five games are needed to stay a member, and eight to play in the tournament, August 30th. See you all next week at TEE-OFF time!
