Men's night at the Bird continues to draw a crowd

Once again men’s night was a huge success, with 26 guys forming seven teams and hitting the course. Trevor Baldwin was on the winners list again with closest to the pin on No. 6, while Ken Ubben was closest to on No. 8.

Long Drive on No. 2 went to Justin Richmond. The first-place team, with a 34, was Hans Brans, Mike Gardner, Greg Harrington and Darwin Cousins. After a chip-off, second went to the team of Roy Bird, Duane Tachick, Walt Parrish and Larry Taylor with a 37.

The ladies enjoyed the gorgeous evening for their first official night of fun golf. Faith Link and Susan Ellis walked away with first place with a 38. Long drive on No. 5 was Pat Bird, and Susan Ellis got the longest putt on No. 9. None of the ladies landed on the green on either Nos. 6 or 8, so they will carry over to next Wednesday.

The Bird Homestead Golf Association is hard at work on the club storage area. The plans for the string tournament Saturday are moving along smoothly. If you would like to play this tournament, entries close at 12:30 p.m., then the blind draw and tee-off will be at 1 p.m. If you need a cart, call 260-4653.

The golf association is also sponsoring youth lessons every Thursday at 4 p.m. Rob Frazer will be teaching swing, chipping and putting. The final week there will be a tournament. There is no charge to the youth for these lessons. If you are interested, please call 260-4653. It is not required that the students attend every lesson.
