In Men's Club news, Ray "Hoagie Carmichael" Hogge stole the show when he shot a career-best gross score of 70, two shots more than his age. Not only did Hogge take first place honors on the back side with a 28.5 and tie for second place on the front side (30.5), but he also had closest to the pin honors on holes 6 and 14. A great day and a big congrats.

On the back side, Tom Webster was in second (32.2), beating out Dick (33.5) in third and some guy named Taz in fourth (34). Other closest to the pin honors went to Dave Miller on No. 8, Don Burt on No. 10, and Everett Jackson on No. 17.
