Breezy Point Par-Tee News

Despite the hazy, hot and humid forecast last week, a few of our players chose to ignore the weatherman and showed up to play. One such player, Doris Neimeth, remained calm, cool and collected. She managed to not only score two birdies and two chip-ins, but also in an awesome display of skill, set a new low mark for the season, a 57! Congratulations Doris, parring the course is now within sight!
This week showed a marked increase in players as one of the largest turnouts of the year occurred. However, that fatal combination of heat and humidity drove five of them off the course only halfway through. They were trying to seek some relief from the steamy weather.
Many of the clubs meanwhile stayed red hot and nine of the Par-Tee ladies didn’t let the grass grow under their feet as they scored in the 60’s. Among them were Peggy Ansbro, Eileen Watson, Barbara Caramelli, and Doris Neimeth all scored 65. John McNally scored a 66. Nancy Heffernan, 67. Pam Armour and Lyn Canavan, 68. And Mildred Seligman scored a 69.
Not very far behind them was Tess Kearney at 71. Pat Powers, 72. Mary O’Rourke and Dotty Dunne, 76. Muriel Hellreigel, Helen McDonald, Barbara O’Brien, Marge O’Leary and Bernice Carroll scored 77 and Kay Miller, 79. Oops, almost forgot my old partner, Inez Moriarty, who did herself proud with a 76! Nice Playing!! Kudos to all of you.
Birdies were scored by Lyn Canavan on the 1st. Pat Powers and Eileen Watson on the 5th. Lil Hanratty, Nancy Heffernan and Maureen Ris on the 17th. Dot Chandler, 12th. Muriel Seligman 18th and Dotty Dunne scored two birdies-on the 2nd and 11th. There were only two chip-ins. One chip-in was by Kay Hanratty on the 7th, and the other by Marilyn Higgins on the 5th. Both of them shared the biggest pot of the season!
Since Mary Sullivan was unable to attend because of personal commitments, Eileen Watson took over with Marge O’Leary and Gloria Tropea assisting. They did an excellent job of lining up the players and setting up lunch. Eileen is going to be our CEO next year, so it was a good trial run. She is now looking for volunteers to assist next season.
Many hands make light work, and if you haven’t contributed in the past, this may be your year to give a hand to the club. All offers are gladly accepted! The 50-50 club was won by Frank Tropea, which delighted the ladies, as they know how hard he and Al Neimeth work to make our luncheons so successful. The special $25 prize was won by someone not present and had to be re-raffled. Lillian Poppiani won the raffle, fulfilled the requirement and went home a little richer.
There is only one game before the Tournament. Last chance to get that hole-in-one! See you all at PAR-TEE TIME next week!
