To those who could not attend this year’s outing, please know that you will be missed – we have always had a good time at these golf outings.

Editor: Here is a graphic and description of the “Step Aside Scramble” rules. Don’t worry if you can’t read this very well – Rick Caldwell will explain everything at the luncheon before play. I think I got them down correctly.

Step Aside Scramble Played as a normal scramble except that the player whose ball is selected ‘steps aside’ and doesn’t play the next shot.

On the starting tee all three players tee off. Player A’s drive is selected so only Players B & C play the second shot.

Player B’s second shot is selected and ‘steps aside’ while Player A & C play the third shot and so on until the ball is in the hole and the score for the hole is determined.

Whoever sinks the putt then ‘steps aside’ and only two players tee off on the next hole. Players may take their shots in any order as this is part of the tactics of the game.

Enjoy guys…. Maybe I’ll pop in for a drink or something…
