Here we go.......Defending Champions under new ownership.......Hawkeye Spring Banquet!
Welcome to the 2013 golf season! Although it feels like fall league the Men’s Supper League is scheduled to start soon.
Mother Nature and the entire Men’s Supper League must be scared of YOUR Bud Light team as league night signup was delayed a week and Mother Nature just won’t let Spring happen. Your Bud Light team is locked and loaded again to chase the championship crown. As the new Bud Light slogan states….Here we go!
Before we start the golf season I want to give a big shout out to Carrie, Dave, Dave and the entire staff for making Thursday nights so enjoyable this past winter. Great work and great fun!
It looks like we have several new members this year. When you see a new member at the club stop and take the time to welcome them to our family.
Defending 2012 Supper League champions Templeton Rye will officially be Mid Iowa Team this year under a new sponsorship agreement. The execution and validation of winning back to back championships is something that the defending champs are looking for. Team captain Papa Joe Pick commented on the new sponsorship at the team’s media day by saying “We are proud to be under the Mid Iowa umbrella and look forward to the consulting arrangement with team owner Mike Franey to insure our repeat as Men’s Supper League champions.”
In his statement about the agreement Franey commented “I believe that this is a win – win for everyone. It is a performance based agreement and Mid Iowa has a first right of refusal to the team’s rights for the upcoming years.” The financial details of the agreement were not released. Denny Kasperbauer will not be playing for the defending champs this year. Ed “Catfish” Tomka will play for the new Mid Iowa Team.
In other golf news sources close to the organization reports that the most mature supper league team Macke Motors is struggling for team members. It looks like last ditch effort may keep the team together.
Last year Bob Pudenz won the Uncle Bruce Player of the Year award named after long time friend to us all Bruce Pettitt. This year it has been tweaked a little to be the Uncle Bruce Player of the Week. The award will be chosen weekly by the editorial staff of the Franey Golf Report.
The Carroll Area I-Club spring banquet will be Thursday, May 9th in Arcadia. Hope to see you there!
As always this Bud's for you and On Iowa!
Bud Light Championship Captain
