Bowling

BOWLING LEAGUE: PLAY RESUMED AS OF OCTOBER 19
 
Practice sessions are held Mondays at 1 p.m. at Liberty Lanes. The Palm Hill Bowling Club has a few openings for full-time bowlers and even more for substitutes. Masks are mandatory to enter the common areas at Liberty Lanes. No masks have to be worn during play. New residents and seasoned veterans are welcome. Due to handicaps, all levels of players are accepted and encouraged. For information and details please contact: Carey Bradburn 407-949-4291 78 Pindo Palm West Crbradburn@aol.com
Palm Hill Bowling League play will begin Monday, October 19, 2020, at Liberty Lanes, 11401 Starkey Road. Play begins at 1:00pm.
 
League will be comprised of 10 teams with 3 players per team for the fall season.
 
Split season will consist of 23 weeks, divided into two 11-week sessions. After the first 11 weeks of play, all teams will start at zero wins/losses. All new bowlers will establish an average after three games.
 
The final Monday of bowling, a roll-off will be held between the two highest place finishers for league title. The roll-off format will be three games and winning team will be decided by highest total pins. There will be one individual award and one team award for each bowler/team in the league. You must bowl a minimum of 10 weeks to be eligible for awards and banquet dinner (or pro-rated if you wish to attend).
 
Bowlers will be responsible for $11.00 fee per week. Absent bowlers will pay $3.00 for each week missed.  Team captains are responsible for checking, and turning in the money envelopes and score sheets each week. Both teams must sign the score sheets.
 
A total of 7 points will be awarded for each match – 2 points to the winning team of each game, and 1 point awarded for the team with highest total pins.
 
Due to the automatic scoring system, a late bowler can not bowl in that game after the second frame has been completed.
 
Please notify your team captain as soon as possible if you are unable to bowl, so that a substitute bowler may be contacted to bowl in your place. If no substitute bowler is available,  ten pins will be deducted from an absent (blind) bowler’s average.
 
Please contact Carey Bradburn at 407-949-4291 with any questions or recommendations.

VP Jessie Walcott (Acting President.) 727-288-7521 or email jessijow1@yahoo.com
 
Welcome to all the Snowbirds who have made their way back to Palm Hill. It is with regret that I am announcing that the November meeting and all planned events for this winter will be cancelled until further notice. The safety and well-being of our members is our first concern. It takes a lot of planning and volunteers to carry off our big events and quite a few of our members will not be making it down for this winter. There will still be Ladies Golf on Fridays for those who wish to play. Information about Friday women’s association play sign ups, pairings and time slots will be issued at a later date.
 
FREE GOLF LESSONS FOR LADIES BEGIN NOVEMBER 1
From golf teachers Claire Longman and Caroline Zimmerman: Free ladies golf lessons will begin Sunday Nov. 1, 2020 at 3 p.m. We will meet at the Bonnie Roberts Pro Shop. Social distancing will be followed. Lessons are open to all Palm Hill ladies – beginners and all who want a little help with their game. Please be early. Lessons begin promptly at 3 pm. Bring your clubs. If you need clubs, we have some to share. Lessons will be held on the following dates: • November 1, 8, 15, 22, 28
• January 3, 10, 17, 24, 31
• February 7, 17, 21, 28
 
 
 
 

Mens Golf Association

MEN’S GOLF ASSOCIATION Bill Mattingly, VP, email: Billmattingly2299@twc.com
As per Palm Hill guidelines, all Men’s Golf Association functions have been cancelled. We look forward to returning to past activities and meetings as soon as possible. However, changes have occurred with the Association and there are now two vacant board seats. Wayne Marshall has resigned his position as president and Don Rice has resigned his position as secretary. Both resignations were influenced by Covid travel restrictions and regulations. Both Wayne and Don have expressed disappointment and are looking forward to returning to Palm Hill as soon as possible. We look forward to resuming all the fun activities related to the Association (including the Bandits) and working with the Ladies Golf Association. Association dues, activities and the filling of vacant positions on the Men’s Golf Association board will be discussed at a future meeting (date to be determined). Stay tuned for information. If there is other business or news that needs attention, please notify me at my email billmattingly2299@twc.com. As a sidebar, it is noted that John Brauchler, Ken Keller and Lawrence Lotz had holes in one last spring, and Bill Wenske had a hole in one on September 25. Ken’s was his first hole in one. Congratulations to all four men. Thanks to everyone for your considerations.

BOOK CLUB RECOMMENDATIONS
Stay tuned for announcements about the book club meetings listed below. Susan Fisher, 813-312-3872, susantfisher11@aol.com
 
With social distancing and the clubhouses being closed, we were not able to do the April 2020 book discussion on “Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine”. It will be worked into the schedule listed below, or the book and discussion will be substituted for one of the dates listed. We are listing these for next season with the great hope they will give you reading enjoyment during your extra time in social distancing as long as it lasts, and that things will be back to normal by the time this schedule goes into effect in November. You can get these books free from the Largo Library as an e-book with a free app on your smart phone or tablet and a library card.
