MOUNTAINSIDE MEN’S CLUB: As our golf season winds down, the weather conditions could not be more magnificent and condusive to some great play.  Congratulations to our low gross champion, Steve Seheult who prevailed during our two day club championship, September 12th and 13th.  Other winners included Cal MacPherson (low overall net), Ed English (first flight), Stew Slack (second flight), and Garry Thompson (third flight).  Lots of KPs and deuces were awarded, including two deuces and three KPs to Steve and one lack to our great competitor Mr. John Denhamer.  Earlier, John Aitken on August 15th won an interesting competition where members had to choose six tee offs each from the forward, white or blue tees.  John also rolled in two deuces that day.  On August 22nd, the team of Ken Tidsbury, Dale MacDonald, Jim Gibb and Bob Kipp won our “sixes” competition.  To the delight of his (yours truly) grandfather guest Jared Brown captured a KP while Stew Slack ran in the only deuce.  Garry Thompson became our monthly cup winner on August 29th with Fred Maye a very close runner up.  On September 4th, the team of Sam Shachnowich, Tom Gerald, Frank Ashworth and Bill Clarke won the four men, two best net competition.  On September 19th, playing to an interesting four men team competition of one best net (red flagged holes), two best net (white) and three best (blue), the team of Wayne Geiger, Ed Taillieu, Bill Bergman and yours truly carried the day.  Ed also showed his stuff by winning our monthly cup for September on the 26th as well as running in no less than two deuces.  Well done, Ed.
