*The Amoco Retiree Golf Group is a pretty loose organization, but it relies heavily upon the willingness of individuals to do one little thing a few times a year. This is the weekly pairings. It’s not complicated, you can get lots of assistance, you get to pick your own team, and you have the pride of knowing how the teams are determined. Real inside info.**We realize that with new golfers to our group there is a natural hesitation to do something new and different, but it helps things run so much smoother. So, raise your hand at the next lunch—Thanks, The Amoco Retiree Golf Group Board of Directors– *

Dan Newton, ARGG Treasurer (just one of the many highly paid positions in the organization) reports that 16 dozen golf balls are on their way to ball custodian Spurge Lambeth for use in rewarding CTP shots. Thanks for your support of the organization. The Treasury is now overdrawn by approximately $30 which should be funded over the next few outings.
Dan also wants to recognize and say thanks to Bob Hendrickson for the donation of approximately 6 dozen new Titleist golf balls for use in rewarding CTP shots. Thanks Bob!
It was truly a nice day to be out on the golf course and enjoy the serenity. We had 29 golfers today and eight teams. We played our standard shamble-two-low-net game with a few minor wrinkles. The low net was on the back nine and the shamble on the front nine. In addition, A & B players had to play all par 3s from the tips, while C & D players played all par 3s from the “most forward” tees. In spite of this, Mr. John Townsend and Mr. Terrence Cooper were closest-to-the-pin playing from the tips. M. Townsend’s team (Rodney Keeling, Harry Hunter, Tim Van Ditner) was also the big winner with a 129 (33 under).
Over the last few weeks we have had a number of visitors and today was no exception. Mr. Doks Odinsi was the guest of Mr.Jide Ayo-Vaughn and the Amoco Group. We hope we will have more as the group needs a lot of “new” blood (no snide comments here please).
