Go SNAPPERS 2019!!!!!

HOW MANY TIMES DID WOLF DRIVE HIS CART FROM 12 green to 13 tee and back??
WEEK 5 UPDATE: May 30, 2019 By: Snapper (Posted: June 5)

Weekly Cudos:

Low Actual: Dave Hamilton & S Peltier "43"
Low Net: Matt Murany & Jerry Carlson "34"
Greenies 1: Steve Peltier
Greenies 2: Johnny Martin
Team Skin: #18 was the hole drawn for a 3 week carry over skin for team Carlson/Markunas
5-Hole: Mike Bloomfield

Birdies: Only 2 Dave Hamilton & Jason Wolfenden... don't know if either plays in Jamie's scratch skin game.

ASSHOLE OF THE DAY:, May 30, 2019:
Well it seems that Bill Cape broke the league dry spell for this revered award. He and partner Dave Lawless teed off 1st with team Wolf/JWolf and dutifully took the greenie markers with them. However, no one in the foursome was able to hit the seemingly 467 yd into the wind par three 12th hole (as usual for most of us) and the greenie markers remained in the cart as they went to the next hole. Somewhere on the next hole it was determined that they remembered the markers and someone must take them back. Wolf volunteered. Upon his arrival back at the 13 hole to continue play with a pleasant smile Cape exclaimed, "Oh Dave I left my 7 iron on the 12th green too. Would you go back and get it please??"

Leaderboard update: So while it is much too early to call anyone in or out of the race for league champs (well except for a few of us) it is fun to pay attention to the now for the time being 3 team race at the top led by Leece/Green, Wolf/JWolf and Peltier/Oginski. If you chose TK/Bloomie to take down Leece/Green last week you were wrong, but if you took Cape/Lawless over Wolf/JWolf you were right!

Who won the money last week? High handicappers that's who.3 guys averaging 54.8 between them took down $210 in weekly games money HA!!!!

ON A SERIOUS NOTE (Much too serious for some if you ask me) there was a discussion last week and straw vote with maybe 20 guys present on the idea of changing over to the white tees due to the difficulty of the blues as many of us get older….It was a bit of a surprise that a dozen or more guys present seemed to desire the change….this caused Jamie to go ballistic and start pointing at random league members declaring at 120 decibles who could and who could not be allowed to play the white tees…..this (Jamie's apparent passion & tirade) caused some of the guys presumably favoring the blue tees to keep quiet so as not to make an ass of themselves…so NO CHANGE RIGHT NOW…PLAY THE BLUE TEES EVERYONE……But keep the discussion open if you wish….If it ever becomes clear that we have a consensus we can vote on it again in earnest. .until then:

SCORE WHAT YOU SCORE & LIKE IT!!!

Go SNAPPERS 2019!!!!!

WHICH MATCH DO YOU LIKE: CAPE/LAWLESS v WOLF/JWOLF & TK/BLOOMIE v JAMIE/HERB?
WEEK 4 UPDATE: May 23, 2019 By: Snapper (Posted: May 29)

Weekly Cudos:

Low Actual: DJ Hochenstein "40"
Low Net: Jamie Leece "33"
Greenies 1: Jamie Leece
Greenies 2: Matt Murany
Team Skin: carry over (?)
5-Hole: Dave Lawless
AOTD: nope nada not this day

Birdies: Only 1 each for COOP and DJ who then rightfully each won a skin in Jamie's scratch skin game.

So 4 weeks in and we see team WOLF/JWOLF starting to pull away with a 6 point lead over surging JAMIE/HERB. Watch out Dave because HERB has been building handicap for the stretch run Peltier dropped a bit this week largely because he was partnerless. Still in it? HARMON/MARTIN then about half the field. Everybody rooting for CAPE/LAWLESS this week vs WOLF/JWOLF??? How about TK/BLOOMIE vs JAMIE/HERB??? We'll see..

With more than a little disappointment yours truly reports that a few "pars" were carded this week (notably Ron Harmon & Steve Markunas) leaving only me and Scott Gregory on the sheet with no pars yet this year and Scott has not even been here yet. oh well my challenge is to beat him getting one anyway.

SPECIAL NOTE: Be on the lookout for a Majestic Beer Babe of the Week. We have not had one yet (maybe my challenge should be to get at least one par before we do?????

Go SNAPPERS 2019!!!!!

WHO NOW HAS A RULE CHANGE WRITTEN AND NAMED AFTER THEM?
WEEK 3 UPDATE: May 16, 2019 (Posted: May 18)

Weekly Cudos:

Low Actual: TK WOLF & HERB "42"
Low Net: Johnny Martin "30"
Greenies 1: WOLF
Greenies 2: WOLF
Team Skin: #20 was the hole drawn for a four team carry over
5-Hole: sub Doyne Cason

NEW 2019 HANDICAPS today for all those with 100% attendance this year. 3 rounds gets you established to start your 5 week moving average.

Birdies: We had a bunch of em including 2 each for Bloomie & Ogi and 1 each for Peltier, Tony T, Wolf, Chris Johns, Cooper & Tommie.

Most Popular weekly score was "44" (6 of em out there) there would have been 7 but apparently Herbie ("42")couldn't lower himself to that even after agreeing with his partner and opponents who all carded the number. Speaking of one of these things is not like the other -poor STUTZ had to card a respectable bogie on hole #26 only to watch the rest of his foursome birdie the damn thing right in front of him,,,the insensitive louts.

AOTD???????.....nope nada although dishonorable mention goes out to Timmy K who, apparently more interested in fucking with his own partner than worrying about points, waited until Bloomie was quietly concentrating over his 15 inch put the opponents refused to give him, asked out loud: "Hey Mike, do you shave your legs??? They look really smooth to me." The resulting muff was predictable as Bloomie tried to pull his cargo shorts down as far over his pasty white baby ass smooth calves as possible before following through on his ball strike.

NEW RULE: 32nd year into the league and we are still finding a reason to write new rules which only get written when a league member or two require it in someway. Rule #6 has served us well and has always read thusly:

6. When only one team shows up and has no sub for his absent partner, his handicap is doubled, as is his hole by hole score and matched against the opposition for purposes of hole by hole points; However, the 4 "match points" are forfeited to the opposing team.

So query: what if both teams in a match show up with one guy each?? Clearly both teams get the 4 match points? Not gonna happen, so as rules have been most often agreed to in the past, 2 Carlson's agree that the following rule exception is now in effect:

Rule 6(C) exception ie: The Snapper/Lawless exception: But if only one member of each team appears opposing each other for a match no one is inconvenienced or both of them are but in any case they shall not each forfeit 4 points to the other and both score as they advocated but instead shall play for the points as usual in the match.

Jerry: "I second the motion, and so Rule 6(C) ie: The Snapper/Lawless exception is adopted."

Go SNAPPERS 2019!!!!!

March golf in month of May

Low Net: Herb & DJ (again) and Johnny 'Golf' Martin "35"
Greenies 1: Matt Murany
Greenies 2: Johnny Martin
Team Skin: Team Wolf on #10 (2-in-a-row!)
5-Hole: Matt Murany

Go SNAPPERS 2019!!!!!

Golf Cart Rushing Collusion with retaining wall
WEEK 1 UPDATE: May 2, 2019 (Posted: May 7)

Weekly Cudos:

Low Actual: Dave Wolfenden "42"
Low Net: Wolf, JWolf and Steve Peltier "29"
Greenies 1: Timmy K
Greenies 2: Timmy K
Team Skin: #9 - Wolf & JWolf blow it away for a net 6
5-Hole: Kevin Stutzman

Birdies??? We had a few….but then again….too few to mention… Nah I'll mention them: Way to go: Dave Lawless……..Jason Wolfenden….Steve Peltier

ASSHOLE OF THE DAY:, May 2, 2019:
1st runner up and dishonorable mention goes out to Dave Lawless for Gross Disrespect of new course property. This year we all noted at our very first glance that the golf course staff had shown us the unrequited love of having exchanged and placed out of service last year's totally still useable electric golf carts, not with just new carts but with BRAND SPANKING NEW CARTS! These babies are decked out totally complete with shiny paint job, new cart smell and cushie cushie seats. Thank You Majestic. But it was pointed out at the post round business meeting that one Snapper displayed less than total gratitude and respect for the undoubtedly costly course purchase: Other Snappers reported that Dave Lawless ran his cart smash bang hard into the front deck brick retaining wall... "End of the round drunk probably????" I asked. NOOOO.... "It was then most certainly an unsuccessful attempt to back it up close to the wall in reverse???.... NOOOO. Head On Straight Shot before the round shortly after placing his bag on the back. Dave showed us his "Bumper Cart Kill Maneuver". To what end we don't know, but the guys let you off with a warning Dave.

AOTD WINNER: Tim Kachelski for well for what is best described as treating his partner Mike Bloomfield much like Mr. Lawless treated his cart. Background: Since the inception of this partnership last year the weekly games gambling money ($10/team) has been paid by agreement of the two by Bloomie as TK is known to provide the beer for his cart. By the rules of the games of course, the weekly blind draw skin is the only so called team game, the 5 hole and greenies being individual games, that's by the strict rules. By common courtesy and team goodwill, most teams abide the "my win your win" and "All for 1 one for all" thoughts and split the prize money won. But TK won sixty smakeroonies by smashing two greeneies. When he volunteered nothing to his partner Bloomie is said to have held out his hand and TK put nothing in it as witnessed by numerous Snappers in attendance. AOTD to you Mr. Insensitive to Bloomies feelings….

Go SNAPPERS 2019!!!!!

Okay Boys week 1 is here - WELCOME BACK!
May 1, 2019 By: Snapper

As we begin the year ostensibly seeking only fun and commaraderie, let us not forget the humble words of gratitude expressed by our 2018 league winners Mike Romanowski and Dave Furey spoken in response to our many congratulatory expressions to them by Snappers last year upon learning they had won the League Championship for the 2nd straight year:

"We would have won it more than twice already but we have only been in the league for two years!!"

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm????????????????????????

Maybe. Maybe not. We shall see. While we have over the years heard 5 different two man teams shout the words, "THREE PEAT, THREE PEAT" as their intentions early in the year after they had won the league twice in a row, we have not as yet ever in the history of the league seen that actually happen. All of the following teams tried and failed:

1998-1999 League Champs Gary Fulgham & Mark Blevins
2004-2005 League Champs Dave Wolfenden & Steve Markunas
2006-2007 League Champs Steve Peltier & Scott Cowan
2015-2016 League Champs Larry Cooper & Tom Harris
2017-2018 League Champs Mike Romanowski & Dave Furey

So Mike and Dave please know that we all wish you very good luck in your upcoming endeavor….OR NOT……

Go SNAPPERS 2019!!!!!

May 29, 2004
I sat at a table on the beer deck checking the math on Snapper golf cards (fifty five... fifty six... fifty seven...). Fellow Snappers were swapping traffic violation stories like old sailors rolling up their pant legs and comparing shark wounds. Mister Cowan's partner, Shang, had started the subject earlier when he hired Snapper to help him with a ticket (allegedly for speeding, but Shang claims it was a wrongful citation as he was in a hurry that day). Shang became concerned and wondered aloud if he was still on Snapper's "billing clock." Snapper told Shang not to worry, as he will work for beers. Shang, here is a running legal bill (bar tab) for Snapper's services.
