Carole Baskin did it

Something happened that killed Carl's win and I think we all know who did it.   Bruce Exotic will tell ya, it was that bitch!   Yup... a simple mistake in the scoring app that transposed three scores between the Campbell boys was enough to shake things up and completely move the placings around.    

I as your humble leader am actually going to take the hit on this one as I had both Bru & Bri Campbell in the same foursome. That was asking for a mistake to be made in the scoring and it happened.  (Carole Baskin did it, but it's my fault).   So without further adieu, our favorite Canuck is the official winner of the Fore Championship.  Congratulations to Bruce Campbell and condolences to Carl Canestrano.  I must say, ever the gentleman and consummate past champion that he is, Carl accepted the correction and second place victory with his usual grace.

The abundance of rain the week of the event including the night before made for exceptionally soggy conditions at Pebble Creek.   That did not deter an astounding 36 of you to come out and endure the misery that is cart path only play.   While the speed of play was greatly affected by the conditions, the pace seemed pretty steady and I'm happy to report that everyone not only showed up, but finished as well!   

Notable "Highlights" for the day,  My group was the second one through the closest to the pin hole #2 and as the proximity marker had not yet moved from where the groundscrew placed it, I moved it to my group's closest ot the green shot.  Yeah, none of us got it all the way there...   But hey, I was closest to the green and amazingly 29 other players after me couldn't manage to get it closer.  That is spectacularly mediocre.     Not to be outdone, Doug Crenshaw went beast mode on the long drive and his mighty shot held up through 35 other competitors to take the Longest Drive.

Chuck Markillie is racking up the Most Mediocre awards this season but never sticks around after to collect is covetted golden M's...   See me after class Mr. Markillie!   Mr. TJ Peele in his second outing of the season (welcome back sir) takes home another Key to the Red Tees!!   I believe that is 2 this year and coincidentally there are two event's left to play.  Hmmm.  was there strategy in that move Mr. Peele?

Speaking of Red Keys, Richard Blank who has fallen victim to Freddy's Red Key Curse somehow managed to go from dead ass last earlier this season to third!  Rumor has it, he and two other members of the Freddy's curse krewe still have their Red Keys to redeem within the next two events.   Yeah Ken & Dan, I'm looking at you guys!

The moral of today's story is that we all need to keep two sets of scores, one in Scrolf and one on paper so that we can go back later and correct Carole's mistakes.   I'm kidding, it wasn't just her, there have been a few other minor corrections this year and I always save the paper ones for at least a few days.

So we have to be able to figure out our phones(Scrolf) AND fill out a card!?...We are supposed to be mediocre. A foursome only has a limited amount of fingers and toes. And the scores are ALWAYS higher than the amount in our gloves and shoes. ;)

Carole Baskin can't be blamed for the scoring SNAFU. No doubt she was so excited about being named to be in the cast of Dancing With the Stars, that she was just preoccupied.....

I appreciate Carl being so understanding I will take some of the blame for not checking my actual score I just love being in this group however it is totally Carols fault but the good news on another subject is we will have Canadien bacon at the Bastards next year
