D-Select Golf Is A Real Game
And the results are in.Yes, the BLGA held their 2016 "D Select” tournament this past week and the team captains (in alphabetical order thanks to the stellar reporting of Faye Powell) were Barbara Bowe, Sandra Bryant, Pat Dinhoble, Mary Horner, Lynne Keener, Susan McFarland, Marsha McGuigan, Gail McKinnon, Betsy Moore, Sharon O'Neil, Shirley Quinlan, Janet Raper, Jan Talley, Sharon Tuttle and Patricia Wright.
In "D Select" these captain's golf skills are certainly important. But their real talent isn't revealed with a putter or wedge. Nope, with a pencil. Yep. Picking. And the winning pickers were Betsy Moore whose thoughtfully selected team of Connie Landgraf, Liz Jones and Karen Koerner won first place, gross. Equally skilled Lynne Keener selected Jerrie Stewart, Donna Hagan and Karen Cutrer who become the first place net champs. Honorable mention goes to second place pickers, Sharon Tuttle winning gross and Shirley Quinlan winning net. They were followed close behind by third place winning pickers Gail McKinnon for gross and Barbara Bowe for net.
But not all the skill was necessarily in the picking as was demonstrated by Carol Loomis, Liz Jones, Linda Gent and Susan McFarland. They actually hit some golf shots to win closest to the pin accolades. Probably some prizes, too. Dijano is a word I made up. It's a noun used to identify certain features of our neighborhood and the larger surrounding community that you might find interesting. It sounds a lot more exotic than it actually is, because it's simply shorthand for "did you know." And one such dijano was recently pointed out to me by neighbor, Carla Muldrow, as we enjoyed some bowls of pasta together during our recent neighborhood gathering (another topic for another time). Her dijano had to do with the Stewart Library in Montgomery.
Dijano there are tons of activities going on there and she and hubby, Jim, have discovered that there's a whole lot more to library life than just browsing through the adventures of the Dewey decimal system. For example, they've recently been attending computer classes where Jim's dijano moment came when he learned he can punch buttons and actually find stuff. All kinds of stuff. It's a big world out there. Who knew? Now you know. The library's class schedule is online. Check 'em out. Don't know how? Dijano they'll teach you?
