Last seen crossing the bridge on #10 concerns are mounting for the group of Farina, Dumas and Walters. We know they did tee off on # 1 and then were lost on the radar for many hours until a group reported they were seen leaving the #10 green...or at least a group of three was seen matching their description. Experts say due to the heat and the dangers lurking on the golf course their appearance may have changed. Drones and search parties have been dispersed. Homeland Security is on Code Red.
Anyone with any information please contact SOMEBODY...in fact ANYBODY!!!!!
Attention Grandparents: When you are with your grandkids this summer do something for them: Teach them about taxes. Eat 30% of their ice cream
It is HALF Time!!!!!
OK...we have half the season in the books. Time to make new resolutions, after all you were just a putt away from being in the TOP 10 Money Winners for the first half of the season...it was MUCH closer than it looks. You were right on the very edge of having an all-time best first half EVER!!! Or maybe it was because you had such rotten partners the first half of the season...yeah, it was their fault!!! That is the ticket!
Whatever it was...well, now is the time to show the Real You...the one that has been hiding all those birdies, that Ace you have been holding off. Oh yeah baby...now you are going to step up to the plate. Look out Frater, Zupko, Candido and all those other pretenders...now is YOUR Time! Make room for the KING!!!!!

New MGA Member
Many of us have met Harry Maclaughlin and already know he is a good golfer and a good guy. He recently completed his house on Sugar Maple (off of October Glory) after he and his wife retired and came to River Landing from the Baltimore area. Harry has golfed in several play days and in The Pot of Gold last week as well as The Summer Classic. He says he is ready to golf "any day" and is willing to golf with different handicaps...he is an 11.
Harry is fun to talk with and is a great addition to The MGA...buy him a beer and toast his arrival at River Landing!

Hey, don't blame me...Dale said it!!!
Well, I did not hear it but this comes from a reliable source. He said he was in a group with Dale a couple of weeks ago and just seconds before teeing off Dale came charging up to the tee, obviously too late to warm up. He promptly took and 8 on # 1 and followed that with a lost ball 9 on # 2. My informant says he put his hand on Dale's shoulder and said, "Hey, that's ok, just pretend those were you warm-up holes." Dale responded by saying, "Warm-up is highly overrated."
