Wow.... time flies when you're having fun! It's hard to believe the half way point of the season is almost upon us. With the month of August right around the corner, I wanted to give the members and guests a heads up regarding the very busy schedule of events beginning next week.  

First, congratulations are in order to the 4-man scramble team of James Macdonald, Joe Footer, Toby Cole and Darrin Constant for shooting a stellar -15 to win the WCCC/Pratt tourney a few weeks ago.  Although that was a great score, it paled in comparison to the -3 round shot in the "Barefoot Scramble" following the event!!! It's still a little cloudy on which teams shot that score with all the shenanigans that took place, but as usual all had a good time. The M. Campbell Cup and D. Ellis Cup matches are moving along nicely, with just a few matches remaining to move into the semi-finals. 

The International Festival is this weekend, which is always a great time to catch up and spend time with old friends. Before they head back from the fun weekend, why not come to the Croix and enjoy the Festival Brunch on the back deck with the best view in town. The brunch will be offered from 9:00 a.m. until early afternoon on Sunday August 13th.

The next day is the 52nd Annual Indian Days Celebration PM Tourney. This one always fills up quick, so please get your name in the draw a.s.a.p. This is an open 18-hole stroke play event, offering one shotgun start at 1:00 p.m.

Later in the week on Friday August 18th is the Calais Regional Hospital 3-Club Challenge 4 Person scramble. 

This is also an open pm event with one shotgun start beginning at noon.

The Friday Night League Championship auction is that evening on August 18th, with the actual Championship being held on Sunday, August 20th. The first tee at the course will be closed from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on that Sunday.  

Finally, finishing up a busy month is the very popular "Full Tilt Golf" Two-person Scramble, sponsored by Caesar’s Bar and Grill being held on Saturday August 26th. This is a 27-hole event, of which, 9 holes in best ball format, another 9 holes alternate shot, and the final 9 holes a two-man scramble.  John Marchese has graciously offered up a BBQ and tee gifts for all participants..... aaaand, carrying on the tradition, there will be two free 2018 memberships raffled off at the conclusion of the tourney! 

As you can see, there's a lot going on at the Croix, so get out, get involved, and join in the fun!!! As usual, thanks for your continued support of the St. Croix C.C., Mike.
