2018 GT Fred Tee Open:   Barry won with a 75.   The club is instituting a new golf handicapping system as members are starting to shoot lower than their age.  Take your age, subtract it from Norm’s score (99), divide by 1, multiply by 1 and then add your age.  This is your new score.  Congrats Barry!

 

2018 Cincinnati Dental Society  5k Walk/ Run “ Leave no Vet Behind” It’s always good to get out in support all of our Vets.  No world records were set, but in the side race between John John and Abraham Kiptum, John John turned on the afterburners and was able to hold off the end push by Abraham, claiming the victory.  Thanks to all in attendance, to the Dental Society and to Ken Brandt for sponsoring.

In true hippy fashion, she shared her prize with everyone. Tom “Elvis” Ashpaw  left the building with the win for best dressed male.  In the dance competition, Tim and Marty Burke, won by a slight margin to Arnie and Kathy Ashpaw.  I’ve heard it my whole life and said it many times…A GOODTIME WAS HAD BY ALL.
