Kinns Road Park
June 19, 1999

It was a beautiful, pleasantly warm day in June. There was no humidity, and the bugs were not too bad - it has not rained much for a while - but folks still got muddy on the red and green courses. Those who know Kinns Road know that the stream is always muddy, even when it's dry.

There was a sweep by EMPO on all five courses. The Tryson family, in fact, won the white, green and red courses - I told them I wanted a red Miata for the fix. Ha, ha! A very good showing on the orange and red courses by old and new friends made for an enjoyable day, in spite of a rather embarrassing miss-designation of a control feature on the orange, green and red courses (JY) by the meet director. Most found it anyway, and then let me know about it afterwards! I still can't figure out how it happened (maybe it was because this was my first time using the "Clue" computer program), but I'm pretty sure everyone still had fun.

Many thanks to the Tryson and Hawkes-Teeter families for control pick up, and special thanks to Eric Hamilton for vetting at 6:30 AM. Loved the fig newtons. He found them all. Most everyone else did too. See you in the fall.
