Larry Wolfe The 2011-2012 Senior Softball


Tournament and awards ceremony were held on April 17 at the Field of Dreams. Over 200 friends,


family members and


players enjoyed a great day of softball and the ballpark cuisine of Chef Bobby Thompson. The tournament was a fi ve-game, single


elimination tournament. Seedings for the six league teams were based upon the total won-lost records of each team over the 52 game schedule that comprised our three sessions (fall, winter and spring). In game one, the Mutual of Omaha team beat the A-1 Golf Carts squad by a 16-12 score. Jack Strauss, Dave Boone, Tim Loeffl er and Al Grefsheim each garnered three hits for the winners. In game two, State Farm Insurance


edged Farmers Insurance by a 9-8 count. Mike Wolfe, Denny Davidson and Evan Hansen each had two hits for the winners while Gary Hatch paced the losing team with three hits. Game three featured number one seed,


Desert Cove Rehab Center. Desert Cove just squeaked by the State Farm team by 12-11 score. Steve Schaider knocked in the winning run in the bottom of the seventh to seal the hard fought victory. Bill Cheney led the winners’ attack with three hits and a walk. Tim Stock went four for four in the losing cause. After game three, Master of Ceremonies Sowney

Committee. The committee met monthly to discuss golf issues with the club pros. In 2008 he was elected treasurer of MOGA and served for two years and at the same time worked on assigning the teams for the weekly MOGA event. In the spring of 2010, he handed off the treasurer’s job to Steve Crowell and assumed the function of tournament director when Marty Wirt moved to Colorado. Richard said he would like to thank Phil Dantzscher, Mike Hayes, Ken Strachman, Fred Smith, Jim Hooyman,


Jack Holme and his “pairings


partner” Bob Johnston for all the help they have given him over the years. Finally, Richard wants to thank Aki Yasuda for so graciously accepting the position of tournament director and allowing Dick to “bow out” with a minimum disruption to MOGA.


On behalf of all MOGA members,


Richard, past and present, we extend our sincere appreciation for all you have done for the success of MOGA. You are a real gentleman! If you have to cancel your MOGA play,


it is important that you cancel before 5:00 p.m. on the Monday before play to avoid being a “no show.” To cancel using the Chelsea program will not work after noon on the preceding Sunday. You must call 895-1738 ext. 4 to cancel AFTER noon on the preceding Sunday. All the information concerning MOGA can be found in the Member Handbook and at www.mogagolf. com. (A new Members Handbook will be published in the near future.) “Golf


is played by 20 million men
