Round 4

A lot of the recent heat wave seemed to have been preserved in the bowels of FreeGoldWatch on this steamy Wednesday night. Fingers were slipping off buttons, but never mind, we had a blast as always! 69 players showed up and although nobody had a perfect round, Gabe managed to get 33, and current leader Zac had a 32.

See you on September 20th for round 5!

 

Allison is about to drop the hammer!

 

 

 

 

For Dogs’ Sake! A fundraiser for a dog rescue

Thanks to everyone who came and played and thereby helped out The Grateful Dogs Rescue in SF. Thanks also to those who came by and donated to the cause, which we raised $220 for in one fun afternoon.

We tried out a new format, progressive strikes in a knockout style tournament. 10 strikes and you’re out! It was a fun format, and I’m sure we’ll use it again in the future. The results are now corrected on Matchplay, but are also below:

1,Per Schwarzenberger,12220
2,Zac Wollons,21965
3,Roland Nadeau,49650
4,Brian O’Neill,19301

I used number of strikes as a tie breaker when multiple players went out after the same round.

Top 4 finishers: Zac, Per, Roland, Brian.

 

 

 

Round 3

Round 3 saw 63 member + 6 guests (some all the way from Seattle) coming to play. Aaron “The Beerman Cometh” Nelson had himself a perfect round of 35 all while looping the right ramp on Simpsons immeasurable times! This just in: Jeff F-f-f also had a perfect 35. Nicely done lads!

Thanks everyone for coming out and I hope to see you on September 6th for round 4.

Round 2

62 members and 6 guests (well 7, but 1 little guy slept most of the time) showed up for round 2 of the 2017 Fall season. Brian O. and Andrei both had perfect 35’s. Congrats guys!

See you all in 2 weeks!
