Par Tee Golf Ladies Celebrate Guys and Dolls Tournament
The Par Tee ladies would like to give accolades to our co-chair ladies, Betty Weed and Carol Smyth, for the work they did on the Guys and Dolls Tournament.
It was a fantastic event with great prizes, a delicious lunch, wonderful ambiance, colorful table decorations, a great group of people and a free drink! Even the golf gods cooperated with the weather! We were so glad Bill McDonald stopped by to say hello. McDonald and his wife Helen just celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary! Best wishes for many more years of happiness!
As for the winners of the tournament there was a three way tie; all ended up with an awesome score of 49! One foursome was comprised of Joan McNally, Danny Armour, Kathleen Joyce and Jim Boylan. Another group was Neil and Maureen Wilson and Joanna and Charlie Beck.
And a third group was made up of the Kearney family—Tom and his two daughters Eileen Watson and Mary- Ellen Hogan and the wonderful Ed Deacy! Congratulations to all three groups on a well played game! Closest to the pin was won by Neil Wilson and Peg Ansbro.
The winner of the informative rules quiz with 12 correct was Jim Boylan and the MOST WISDOM AWARD was given to Tom Kearney! The winners of the 'Peggy Wheeler 50/50" were Carol Bayne and Joan Fallon. Again, many thanks to Betty and Carol on a great day!!
REMINDER: Co-Presidents Sheila Schaberick and Alice Mateos would like to remind all former members of the Par Tee that there will be a reunion on Thursday, August 6, at the Catholic Club beginning at 10:30 a.m. Please call Vera Lynch at 718-634-2493 if you are planning to attend. We would like to have a big showing so please come and enjoy each others company.
The Pope met with the College of Cardinals to discuss a proposal from Shimon Peres, the former leader of Israel. "Your holiness," said one of the cardinals, "Mr. Peres wants to determine whether Jews or Catholics are superior, by challenging you to a golf match."
The Pope was greatly disturbed, as he had never held a golf club in his life. "Not to worry," said the cardinal, "we'll call America and talk to Jack Nicklaus. We'll make him a Cardinal. He can play Shimon Peres… We can't lose!" Everyone agreed it was a good idea.
The call was made and, of course, Jack was honored and agreed to play. The day after the match, Nicklaus reported to the Vatican to inform the Pope of his success in the match. "I came in second, your Holiness," said Nicklaus. "Second?!!" exclaimed the surprised Pope. "You came in second to Shimon Peres?!!" "No," said Nicklaus, "second to Rabbi Woods."
God Bless! Have a great week!!!
