Hello MMJGA Participants & Parents,

Sorry we missed the newsletter last week, but that means this one should be twice as good... read on!


A BOWLING PLAY DAY

Mixing it up...

This week, we are on a golf boycott for the return of our very popular bowling outing! Here are the details:

Monday, August 11 at 11 AM

Brunswick Zone
7545 Brooklyn Park Blvd.
Brooklyn Park, MN 55443

The bowling action will last 2 hours and we will provide a small something to eat (since it is the lunch hour).

There is a catch (there's always a catch)...

We do not have access to the van on Monday, therefore I am looking for parent volunteers to carpool. Please give me a call ASAP if you can assist in this venture.

If you are a participant in need a ride please call Jack by Saturday at noon.


PLAY DAY ACTION

Strong Turnouts

We once again had a great turnout at our "play day" on Monday with 11 youngsters participating in the action-packed 9 holes at Theodore Wirth par 3 course. Scores have been improving greatly throughout the season and we certainly could handle more participation, so don't be afraid to come on out and play some golf.

We only have two more chances at free golf for the season so we'd love to see more of you out there!


ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL CLINIC

Dee Saves the Day

Our head professional, Dee, hosted a clinic working on 20-50 yard pitch shots on Tuesday. While the group was small in number, they were high on enthusiasm and huge progress was made on a very difficult shot to master.

We only have one more session with Dee this season coming up August 19th, so if you haven't been out for her clinics, make sure you join in before it's too late!


Carlos prepares his swing. Tre follows through.
