HGSGA Update - May 16, 2019
This week was MISGA week with two away MISGAs (Prospect Bay and Navy) and our first home MISGA which ended up going very nicely with fast play, beautiful weather and a tasty lunch. Thanks goes out to Bill Duncan for coordinating the signup, Lew Shipp for his Golf Genius skills, Randy Maddox for those all important doughnuts, Fred Chiccone for handling the 50/50 and closest to the pin registration, Nick Girardi for handling the money, and Felton Satterfield and Rick Bergin for table set up and helping us find our errant drives. In addition, we appreciate the support of Joan Lovelace and the Hobbits Glen and Turn House staffs. Next Thursday is round two of our Championship Series. Hope you will be there!
Duklewski and Hickey Team up to Win at Home MISGA
Joe Duklewski and Tom Hickey were on today's winning team in the best two balls competition. Their minus 27 score earned them $25 each. After selling all the 50/50 and closest to the pin opportunities, Fred Chiccone won a closest to the pin ($45) and one of the 50/50 prizes ($20). I guess it pays to volunteer your services!! Other money winners included Jim Freiert ($15), Rich Fornadel ($15), and Mike McShane ($10).

Today we lost a good friend and a great golf partner. Bob Grimm died early this afternoon after months of battling cancer. Plans for a memorial service at Hobbits are underway. Bob will be dearly missed by all of us, especially his daily golf opponent Felton Satterfield and all the guys in the Brady Bunch. Thanks and admiration goes out to Dwight Johnson for the comfort and care he provided to Bob and his family over the past few months. Rest in peace Bob. We will miss you.
