Wednesday, Aug. 23, again proved to be one “Hot August Day,” here at Lake Almanor. With the smoky sky starting to clear a bit, we still had spotter planes flying overhead.
Out for a day of guessing games, we all had to predict our score of the day before tee-off.
The challenge of the game was to come as close to our “guessed score” as possible.The closest to the “guessed score” of course was the winner.
This was gross score and our first place winner was Jenni Cesarin (Our Captain), second place winner was Mo Clark and finishing third place Wynetta Regli. Some of us would have wound up with the “Boobie” prize, if there was one, myself included.
All-all, we had a fun day and as usual hope for a better score next week.
