INTER CLUB MATCH HELD ON 11/28


 THE MATCH WAS HELD AND AQUARINA WAS THE WINNER. CAROL MECANKO AND MARILYN COULBOURNE WON THEIR MATCH 11PTS TO 8 AND RAYLENE McSALLY AND JOAN CLEMENT TIED THEIR MATCH AT 9.5 POINTS.  (THE SCORING IS ONE POINT FOR EACH HOLE WON/ .5 POINT FOR HOLE TIED/ ONE BONUS POINT FOR WINNING THE MATCH.)  THE OVERALL SCORE WAS AQUARINA 54 - BAREFOOT BAY 41.


AQUARINA ALSO WON THE FIRST MATCH 43.5 TO 32.5 BACK IN OCTOBER WHEN ONLY 4 TEAMS COMPETED.  ON THAT DAY BRENDA DUKE AND LINDA DIVERGILIO WERE THE ONLY WINNERS (AND MOST TEAMS DIDN'T COMPLETE 18 HOLES DUE TO POURING RAIN.)


THE LADIES FROM AQUARINA INDICATED THAT THERE MAY NOT BE A MATCH IN DECEMBER BECAUSE THEY MAY NOT BE ABLE TO FIELD A TEAM.  THEY HAD A TOUGH TIME COMING UP WITH 10 LADIES TO ATTEND OUR MATCH.  THEY HAVE A SIGN UP SHEET AT THEIR CLUB - FIRST COME - FIRST SERVED...AND IT DOESN'T GET FILLED UP.  I GUESS THEY DON'T HAVE AN ACTIVE LADIES' LEAGUE.


AFTER THE MATCH, ERNIE, BILL AND I DISCUSSED THE SCORES

AND THE SELECTION PROCESS.  WE ALSO NOTED THAT THE HANDICAP INDEXES OF THE FIRST 4 LADIES FROM AQUARINA WERE LOWER THAN OUR BEST PLAYERS.  ONLY ONE OF THEIR PLAYERS COULD BE CONSIDERED A 'C' PLAYER AND A LAST MINUTE FILL-IN WHO WAS A 'D' PLAYER SHOCKED BETH AND ANASTASIA!  JUST ASK THEM.   SO THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT IS, WE NEED TO SIT DOWN AND REGROUP....UNLESS WE FIELD A TEAM OF ALL 'A' PLAYERS WE CAN'T SUCCESSFULLY COMPETE WITH AQUARINA IN  MATCH PLAY.  MY ORIGINAL INTENTION WAS TO ALLOW EVERYONE TO COMPETE BUT IT WAS POINTED OUT TO ME THAT I NEVER TOOK INTO ACCOUNT THE HOME AND AWAY MATCHES.  ERNIE AND BILL SUGGESTED THAT WE FIELD A 'TRAVELLING TEAM' WITH MEMBERS FROM ALL FLIGHTS AND 'QUALIFY' FOR THOSE SPOTS DURING A REGULAR TUESDAY ROUND.....MEANING, ON ONE TUESDAY THE GAME OF THE DAY MAY BE F.E.N., HOWEVER IT MAY BE 'QUALIFYING DAY' FOR A MATCH WITH AQUARINA - SO WHOEVER IS INTERESTED WOULD LET ME KNOW AND THE BEST GROSS SCORES IN FLIGHT A, B, C, D WOULD BE ELIGIBLE TO PLAY - OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT - BUT THEY STRESSED IT WOULD BE GROSS SCORES - NOT NET.  WE WERE JUST PUTTING DIFFERENT IDEAS ON THE TABLE.  NO DECISIONS HAVE BEEN MADE YET.


WE ALSO DISCUSSED THE FACT THAT AQUARINA'S PRO PREFERS TO ADJUST THE HDCPS TO 80% - IT DOESN'T SEEM TO AFFECT THE GOOD GOLFERS ALL THAT MUCH --- BUT TO SOMEONE LIKE ME THOSE EXTRA STROKES ARE GOLDEN.

AND WE ALSO DISCUSSED POSSIBLY CHANGING THE GAME SINCE THE INTENTION IS TO PROMOTE GOOD FELLOWSHIP AND AN INTER CLUB RELATIONSHIP.


SO THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS UP IN THE AIR REGARDING THE INTER CLUB MATCHES.  PLEASE BE ASSURED THAT EVERYONE WILL BE KEPT UP TO DATE ON WHATEVER DECISIONS ARE MADE. 


I ALSO HAVE TO ADVISE EVERYONE THAT THESE INTER CLUB MATCHES ARE NOT LIMITED TO THE 18 HOLE LADIES LEAGUE. ANY FEMALES WHO PLAY AT BAREFOOT BAY ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO JOIN US IN THESE EVENTS.
