Palm Springs, CA
Long time partners, Pinhead and Joey T started the week at the fabled Long Bar Reunion Party and ended it claiming Crab glory. The longest tenured Barbeereans, slogged thru a soggy Sunday to shoot a day's best alternate shot 67 reeling in Boom Chuka Lucka and Big Bear Charlie on the final hole.
Boom & Charlie road Boom's off-the-stick first round 71 to lead the tourney for 53 holes. But like many before them, on Sunday, met their demise in the Spring City Mountain Course's 18th hole ravine. B&C finished tied for 2nd with Hedgehog/Bama Tom two shots back. Rienk/Eddie and and the Thai boys Chariat/Hasanand rounded out the money winners in a 4th place tie a further four adrift.
The Chinese Beatle/Russell in the Bush edged Naked Grant/Paddy the Pilot to win the Toilet Bowl. Corndog/Datou grabbed DFL in a record-breaking wire-to-wire debacle.
Saturday night's auction flew to new heights with both our regulars and rookies pitching in. Paddy the Pilot made a record purchase of Bahama Chris's generous auction donation. Thanks to all who helped.
As usual, Spring City were wonderful hosts, Yoda's cooking magnificent, Charlie's beer quenching, Stew's videos entertaining and the organization by Stew, Joey, Swampy, Yoda excellent. Thanks to those and all who helped.
