Outing number four was held at beautiful Westborough Country Club. The weather as it is for all Rotary Outings was spectacular. It never rains on our parade. It was great to have a couple of new players: Richard Warriner and Tim Dolan. There is still plenty of outings for new players to join us with the opportunity to play some of the best golf courses in St. Louis.

The second outing of the year was held at beautiful and historic Old Warson Country Club. Flashback: Last year at this time our group was hit with a deluge. Besides getting soaking wet the course became a swamp and carts were restricted. This year we were blessed with San Diego style weather and the course was in spectacular condition. A great day in paradise. Speaking of great days newbie Steve Rosenblum blew everyone away with a net 64. Handicap is coming down Steve. Many thanks to Bob Bodine for arranging our outing. Since I won the long drive for the old guys I thought I better mention that. Jack Windish’s guest Anthony Houska took the kids division . Next outing is the Rotary Tournament on May 16th followed by Winghaven on the 22nd.

Another fun night at bowling. If you have not bowled with us, come on out to join us. Pick a team to cheer on. Getting involved with our bowling league is one of the best ways to really get to know most of our really active members.
This is our 99th year. Be a part of history, join us next year for 100th!!! We ought to have 100 bowlers for year 100. Wouldn’t that be cool???
Although our hard core members are there rain, shine, snow, and injured, we did have several out on the disabled list (DL). The Linton-Finch Team could not field a player and Team Decker gained all 22 points. But, Ralph was the only member of his team for the first game. He didn’t slack off though rolling a 222 in the first game. He received reinforcement in game 2 and 3 from his lovely wife, Linda, so it wasn’t just a one man show. This moved Team Decker into 2nd place only 1 point out of 1st.
Speaking of DL, Terry Werner of the Wicks Team has been DL for several weeks. Ever since coming back from his “Down Under” trip he has been suffering back problems. We have been missing him, but also want him completely healed. Maybe he was jumping with the kangaroos too much??
Jon Soifer was the big winner for the 50/50 drawing netting $45. I think he got the tickets that were supposed to have been mine. Oh, well next week.
Lots of people were well above their averages for the night. Six bowlers were more than 37 pins over average for the 3 game series. Notably, Vic DeFate, Doug Lorenz, and Carl Lane were 77, 69, and 67 pins over series average for the night.
Really big games were fewer, Ralph Decker, Steve LaFara, and Black Critzas had the top games at 222, 211, and 199 respectively.
With only 4 weeks left in the 4th Quarter the top 4 teams are separated by only 6 points. The next 4 weeks should be really competitive.
Tuesday, 4/17 is our annual St. Louis / KC Tournament in Columbia. Our team is a little smaller this year, but we plan to beat the socks off of KC. The we’ll have a good meal in fellowship.
FYI – the trip is included in our annual bowling fees. This is great fun and a real highlight for the year. Just another reason to join our bowling league.

This was bowler appreciation week and we were treated to food for the evening. Many thanks go out to Don Klackner, who is also very much appreciated. Team Barnes was very thankful also to team Linton-Finch for helping them to hold on to first place.
Jack Windish had a pretty neat occurrence not only getting a spare, but also knocking out the pin that was stuck in the gutter.
Beth Russell won 50/50 at $57.00.
Honors for the night: Scratch game Matt Weiss with a whopping 235, Ralph Decker 234 Don Klackner 222 and Dave Cowell 216. Handicap Series Gary Jones 659, Matt Weiss 652, Don Klackner 643, Richard Loscaile 637, Jim Cavanagh 633, David Cowell 626 and Linda Decker 621.
If you have not signed up the Columbia trip, you better hurry.
Hey, Hey, Hey, all you Monday night Bowlers, what a great 2nd week for Cow-bells Cowell, 50-50 money winner two weeks in a row! You’ve won as many times in two weeks than I have in the last 15 years! Congrats! I was lucky enough to have a couple of visitors, wife Michelle and number one daughter Alexandra, which reminded me of my new 60 year old age and cheer me on for a couple of games. Best treat of all was the cake, very good, so if you need a special treat for an occasion just go to https://www.facebook.com/cinnamonwhisk/ , she can make a custom design of any kind. That was the second time that day I was eating cake, GOOD DAY!
Eight weeks to go with team Barns and Wicks starting out strong, 21 to 20 points the first week. But in the News once again are those Cow Bells, what a great series, 207, 236 and a 232, 675 scratch, nice! Playing second fiddle, that would be me, with a 226. Don the Legend, rolls a nice 202, and a few other nice scores over average, Dan Scott was 46 pins over average with a 185, Richard Loscaile was 40 over/w 177, Tom Keeline was 34 over/w 152, and Ken Schuman was 31 over/w 178.

While I had been doing volunteer work over the years, I was looking for a large organization that gave back to the community in a significant way. I learned more about Rotary and found that it not only gave back to the community, but to the world…very inspiring…not to mention the great people!
I have been Rotarian in 5 different clubs for over 30 years. I have made life long friends, helped the fight to cure Polio, helped local charities, funded eye surgery s and water wells for people in India and Africa, made many business contacts and in the process had a ton of fun. Finest organization I have ever belonged to.
33 years ago, one of the board members of the company I headed asked me to go to a Rotary meeting. I went, was impressed, and joined. Through the years, I have learned about and participated in many wonderful Rotary projects. As a large club, St. Louis Rotary attracts wonderful speakers and has multiple ways to participate both in sports and social events. A large percentage of my friends are also in the Rotary club.
I joined the St. Louis Club in 1984 after relocating my family to St. Louis. A mentor suggested that belonging to a Rotary Club would be the quickest way to become a part of our new community. That is why I joined Rotary. I became a Rotarian several years later when I realized that through the bonds of fellowship, Rotarians, with a heart for service, could change the world. We put service above ourselves to help those less fortunate. And through that act we experience the greatness of …
Joining Rotary Club 11 has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. The 4 Way Test, in reality a business code of ethics, is what most sold me in becoming a Rotarian in 1988. There is not an organization in the world whose members share a belief of service above self in the highest of ethical standards. My best friends are Rotarians.…
