SUMMER FUN www.DBRnews.com | Friday, May 27, 2011

Golf provides a perfect family outing by Gordon Wolf Of the numerous activities families can enjoy together, golf ranks among the top choices for many families. It gets family members outside, exercise is involved and, most importantly, it’s time spent together enjoying each other’s company and making memories. Families can enjoy golfing together at any time but should also note the July is Family Golf Month. According to information from Play Golf America

(www.playgolfamerica.com), golfing may be the perfect family vacation. Family golf outings are enjoyed by the Mark and Sue Feller family of Denison. Mark has golfed on and off since the late 1970s. A son, Adam, began golfing when he was in the third or fourth grade. Another son, Jake, plays golf with his father when he’s in Denison. Sue started golfing this year. Sue’s son, Mike Krajicek, and Mark’s son, Mike Feller, often join in the outings.

“It’s a lot of fun,” said Mark. He stated on afternoons he and Sue will play golf and alternate shots. “That’s the easiest way to teach someone who is starting to golf,” Mark explained. When all family members are at home, it wouldn’t be unusual to see the Fellers on a golf course sharing some fun family time. If you are a novice golfer, see the article in this section, “Golf Etiquette for the Beginner” for some tips.

Golf is a "gentleman's" sport and has a set number of rules, guidelines and regulations to follow for the enjoyment of all. Try not to hit your first ball off the first tee without warming up first. During a round of golf, you put your body through a very rigorous workout by stretching it in every direction imaginable. You need to get those muscles ready for that workout. Start by swinging with the short irons and working your way to longer irons and into your woods. Finish by hitting a few putts on the practice green. Make sure you warm up the knees and ankles. An ankle sprang is "death" on the golf course. On the first tee check your score card for any local rules you are playing. Back at the clubhouse, you may want to ask if there are any fairways with "ground under repair." Many courses provide relief from these fairway areas by lifting your ball and placing it outside of the repair area. Make sure to place an identifying mark on your ball and inform the other players the type and number ball you are playing. Avoid slow play and try to keep up with the pace of play and with the group in front of you. Walk at a reasonable speed to your next shot, and begin planning it as you approach the ball by studying the strength and direction of the wind. When you reach your ball, check the lie, select your club, visualize your swing and shot, and then play your shot. From the time you select your club until you actually hit your shot, you should take no more than 30 to 45 seconds. If you aren't ready to play when it is your turn, encourage one of your fellow players to play. A golf course is a delicate place and demands special

attention from all. The keep it in the best shape possible, follow these guidelines, (on many courses, these guidelines turn into mandatory actions.) Always replace your divots. Sometimes turf tends to explode on impact, making it difficult, if not impossible, to replace the divot. In this case, you have two options: 1) You can use the toe of your shoe to kick in the turf around the edges of the divot, and 2) Many courses often put containers of a soil/seed mixture on their carts and tees. If this is the case, simply fill in the divot with the mixture. As you progress through your golfing career, you'll most likely see the in inside of a sand bunker. This requires special care by raking the bunker after your shot. Nothing is more frustrating in golf than to come up on a bunker shot and finding your ball in a very large sand divot. (Remember, you play the ball as it lies.) Bring a rake into the bunker with you -- remembering that you should always enter the bunker from the low side at a point nearest the ball.

YOUR CRAWFORD COUNTY WILDERNESS HIDE-A- WAY!

Whenever possible, avoid walking on the steep face of a bunker and always after hitting your shot, rake the area you played from, as well as all your footprints and any others within reach. Rakes should be left --either in or nearby the bunker. Repair any indentations caused by the ball hitting the green. (More than once I've hit the green with my tee shot and upon reaching the green, I found my ball completely buried on the green surface.) Use a tee, knife, key or repair tool to repair the mark by working the edges towards the center, without lifting the center of the mark. Don't tear the grass. Finish by smoothing the area with a club or your foot. Try to get the area smooth enough to putt over. While on the green, don't step on your fellow players putting lines, and if needed mark your ball with a coin or ball marker. Do not stand where you might distract a fellow player, and don't move or make any noise while he's putting either. For safety's sake, never hit when there's a chance you might be able to reach the group ahead of you. Anytime you hit a shot that you think even has a remote chance of hitting any other players, yell "fore" immediately, and make a point of apologizing to any players your ball lands near. I've been hit by a golf ball before, and it's not the most pleasant experience. Don't let your temper get the best of you. Yelling, screaming, throwing clubs or otherwise making a fool of yourself are unacceptable and, in some cases, dangerous to yourself and others. As a player, you also have a responsibility to learn and understand the Rules of Golf. One of the best parts of golf is spending time with your friends. Congratulate the winners and console the losers and thank them for their company, and look forward to your next round at your favorite course. Copyright Publishers-Edge

Lake View to host first-ever Stone Pier Summer Concert Series Local music lovers are excited about the latest addition to Lake View’s seasonal event calendar. The community is turning one of their historic stone piers into a stage for five evenings this summer. The stone piers in Town Bay were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) during the Great Depression and completely restored in 1999. Named to the National Register of Historic Places, these landmarks offer a perfect setting for fishing, bird watching, relaxing and now, for hosting live music performances. Bands will begin on the west stone pier at 7 p.m. and play until dusk. Food will be available for sale with proceeds benefiting the concert series and event merchandise will also be available. Guests are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket to listen on land, or listen by boat on beautiful Black Hawk Lake. Brasher/Bogue, featuring Sac County native Dustin Bogue, is headlining the series with a show on July 8. The duo was originally scheduled for July 1, but a recent call from the Kenny Chesney tour asking them to perform at the pre-parties on Chesney’s upcoming tour forced a date change. Bogue, currently based in Nashville, Tennessee, has been on a musical journey that has taken him through hundreds of

honky-tonks, fairs and festivals over the last decade. Recently, Bogue joined forces with Andy Brasher to form Brasher/Bogue. The first show of the series on Friday, May 27, will be the only show to begin at 6:15 p.m. Musicians from the East Sac County High School band will open the entire series, followed by a double bill featuring King Of The Tramps and The Further Adjustments. This will be the debut public performance for King Of The Tramps, an original roots-rock group based out of Auburn. The band was started by guitarist and lead vocalist Todd Partridge, who spent more than 10 years creating original music with the western Iowa-based group, Salamagundi. Justin Snyder of Lake View adds lead guitar, Rich Baker plays bass and brothers Adam and Ryan Audlehelm round things out on keyboards and drums. King Of The Tramps takes its name from the legend, Tex, King Of The Tramps. Tex rode the rails in the 1930s and 1940s, often leaving his mark, “Tex K.T.” carved into bridges, fences and building across the United States. His moniker has been found near old railways around the plans of west central Iowa. The Further Adjustments are an up-andcoming indie rock band

based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The group features Reilly Partridge on lead vocals and guitar, son of Todd Partridge (King Of The Tramps) and a member of the inaugural East Sac County High School class of 2008. Drummer Josh Wiederin is a 2088 graduate of nearby GliddenRalston. Other group members include Zach Olson (guitar), Evan Koch (bass), and Alec Albright (guitar/ keys). Reilly said he is “really looking forward to playing for friends and new fans in the area.” The June 10 concert will feature Slow Jam, a band that plays classic rock and country tunes primarily from the 60s,
