As luck would have it, Joyce, Donna, Debbie and me were in the same flight, so we knew it would get interesting. Sure enough, Donna was matched against Debbie on the first day; Debbie was matched against Joyce on the second day; and I was matched against Joyce on the third day. Joyce and I played each other for first place in our flight's Winner's bracket. We were tied after 9, tied after 18, and on the nineteenth hole, she won, giving me second place. Donna won our flight's Consolation bracket. Phyllis Ryan won her flight's Winner's bracket. If you've never participated in one of these State Tournaments, you've missed a great experience. Put it on your calendar for next year. It's always in June. Hope to see you there!

So I thought, why not have a For Sale column in this News Site. You just let me know what you have and give me a contact email or phone number. If someone is interested in your stuff, they can contact you direct for a price, or I can post a price with the posting.
So go through your stuff and see what you might want to get rid of. Be sure to give me a complete description, including the condition of the item. You can even provide a picture if you would like. I'll be adding stuff myself, making room for more clubs in my bag.....just what I need! Kathleen

Last year it was amazingly hot, or maybe it was because I was sick. I had shingles in my throat. This year is better: I only have two spider bites on my feet. I'm wondering if this is a "sign". In May next year, I'll not only be anticipating the tournament, but I'll be wondering what dramatic "ailment" I'll have in the weeks just prior to championship tee-off.
I'll be out-of-pocket from June 13 thru 18, but as soon as I return, I'll have results and pictures to share with you. For all our SWGA members who are participating, please check with me if you get a chance so we can be sure to get a group picture for this site.
Sure hope that if you aren't going this year, you'll start thinking about next year already. In the meantime, good golfing!!
