This and That

This first round of the Mary Buckley Eclectic will be Sunday (June 15) and Tuesday (June 17).  Round 2 will be June 22 or June 24.  You count your best scores on individual holes over two weeks and it is a net competition.

Team play continues on Tuesday, June 17 (postponed from June 3).  Will Sandi's Swingers or the Diamonds in the Rolph remain undefeated?  And will Leni's Girls on Fire or the Birdie Bunch get their first win?  The box for scorecards should be on the 10th tee.  Remember to keep separate cards for Team Play, the Eclectic, and our Tuesday $2 game.  I know it sounds complicated, but we'll get used to it.

Our Member-Guest is scheduled for Sunday, July 6.  Sign up on the bulletin board.  The theme is Mardi Gras and it promises to be a fun day.

 Peterborough District Better Ball is being held on Monday, July 7 at Lakeridge Links, north of Whitby.  The cost is $85 per person, including golf, dinner, and prizes.  Flyer and entry forms are on the bulletin board.

A little party to celebrate the Mary Buckley tree will be held on Wednesday, July 9 at 2 pm.  An email with an RSVP will be coming out soon.  Reserve the date if you are interested.

Matches, Team Play, and the Mary Buckley Tree

The match play draws are all posted.  If you signed up to play in one (or all) of them, please check to see if you are to play in the first round.  Get in touch with your opponent(s) as soon as possible to arrange a date.  (Phone numbers and emails are on the Dalewood website, under Member Roster.)  The first round deadline is either June 26 or June 28, depending on the match.  While that sounds like a long time away, don't leave it until the last week, because we know how hectic everyone's schedule is.
A suggestion is to read the rules sheet, which is posted above the draw before you play.  Be familiar with the playoff format if there is a tie.  (The putting competition is the only one that is NOT match play, but total putts, and is NOT a three hole playoff.)  If you don't understand the rules, be sure to ask someone.  A sheet on Match Play Rules, Hints, and Etiquette is also posted on the board.
You can check out the Match Play draws on the Women's Section Blog under "Pages" on the right hand side.  I will update the matches as the summer goes on. 

Team Play was cancelled on Tuesday June 3rd and will be replaced by Tuesday June 17.  Can Sandi's Swingers and Diamonds in the Rolph keep their streak alive or will Leni's Girls on Fire catch fire and The Birdie Bunch make lots of birdies??

Wednesday July 9 at 3 pm has been chosen as the date for the celebration for Mary Buckley tree.  We are happy to report that it has survived the harsh winter and started sprouting some green leaves.  An email with an RSVP will be sent out in the next 2 weeks.
