Bird Homestead report: Bird Cup concludes

What a great week with lots of golf going on. I hate to brag but Dotti Hackit and I (Pat Bird) won the Bird Cup with 14 points, Dave Kimura and Mike Gardner took second with 12 points and Amanda Bird and Mark Hordeman came in with 10 points. There were 12 teams in the cup and it was great fun for everyone.

Men’s night was busy as usual with a real down to the wire chip-off for first place. After two rounds of chipping Trevor Baldwin, Richard Harmon, Bruce Skolnik and Spencer Tachick took the money with 5-under. With 5-under also, but losing the chip-off, second went to Tim Newby, Hunter Sirois, Trevor Hordeman and Vince Redford. Tim Newby was closest to on No. 6, Trevor Hordeman smacked the long drive and pure birdie went to Tim Newby. 

The ladies were all off doing other very necessary things but will be back next week.

Larry had a great guy from Settlers Bay down this week teaching him a little more about setting the mowers, etc. His help was greatly appreciated. 

This weekend will be the Bird Birthday Tournament. It will be a true blind draw and lots of fun. Tee-off will be at 10 a.m. and entries will close at 9 a.m.

The Fall Classic will be for the benefit of Central Peninsula Habitat for Humanity. The format will be the same as every year but we are hoping to make some money for this great organization. If you would like to help them hole sponsorships are available. Contact the golf course for more information. The biscuits and gravy in the morning are still on the agenda and roast pig with all the fixings will be the afternoon meal. 

Lots of people have been coming by to play their last game of the season and it has been great to get to know them and we will miss them and are looking forward to seeing them next year.
