Darel Joseph hit it closest to the pin, and the chip-in was won by Sharon Carter.
It was another great week for golf, as August became September.
A week into September and late summer, golf at Mt. Huff is at its best. A large turnout of golfers showed up for the Wednesday Morning Scramble on Sept. 6.
In first place at 7-under-par was the team of Ron Carter, Mike Ingle and Margie Joseph.
Second place team at 6-under-par gave the recognition of Hippy Jim Battagin, Loren Lindner, Sharon Carter, and Jeff Stevens.
A third place team came in at 5-under-par for Tom Gossett, Don Hubble and Ron Christiansen.
Darel Joseph and Mike Ingle tied it for the chip-in and Margie Joseph hit it closest to the pin.
Good times and lively competition were had by all.
The Thursday Evening Scrambles have ended for the season, due to shorter daylight hours. See you next year.

Wednesday, Aug. 30, was a bit on the smoky side, but some of our golfers were still able to keep their eye on the ball.
Our game was “Bargain Day,” with giving each of us the ability to change two holes on the front nine to par and two holes on the back nine to a par. This was a treat, especially for those who don’t have low handicaps.
We had two flights. In the first flight our winners were: first place, Joan Dickerson, second place Donna White; and in the second flight first place, Mo Clark and second place, Joyce Gronroos.
Donna White also had birdies on Holes 4 and 8, with Joan Dickerson having birdies on Holes 8 and 13. Mo Clark finished with a chip-in on Hole 18, winning the pot, which was a couple of weeks in the making.
Congratulations to all.
Though our next play day threatened thunderstorms and rain, we finished our game of “low net” without incident. We also had a pot of “low putts.”
Winning that pot was Joan Dickerson, who also took first place in Flight 1 with birdies on Holes 2 and 4.First place in Flight 2 was Barbara Quam, First place in Flight 3 was Jenni Cesarin. Finishing a great day of golf with more birdies were Wynetta Regli, Hole 8; Ginger Birchfield, Hole 7; Kim Coco, Hole 2; and Donna White, Hole 5.
Congratulations to all our winners, we look forward to another great game next Wednesday.
