The Fire Down Below

It may come as a surprise to some of you, that
we here at theNewk can to more than just
peck at a keyboard with two fingers.

It may come as an even bigger surprise, that
we sometimes leave our parents basement and
get outside and breathe some fresh air.

And the most surprising fact of all, is that we
participate is sports and games.
(More than just fantasy baseball and football.)

So when we heard about the recent fire that
destroyed the newly built clubhouse at Rolling
Fields Golf Course, we were quite saddened.


All of last year, we watched that building go up.

And now, the night before it's grand opening, it
burns to the ground.

Taking 100 golf carts, rough cutter, fairway cutter,
green cutter, backhoe, and aerators.

All that equipment probably had a total value near

Plus who knows how much money the new clubhouse
cost to build.

We actually have tons of great memories of that
golf course from when we were growing up.

The old building that got blown over during a
microburst wasn't much of a clubhouse.

But it worked.

And now, after all that time and energy to put up
a new one, this happens.

Good grief.

So yeah, we think it sucks.

We also think that you still don't believe we are
any good at golf.

So we'll tell you what...

Send us an email, and offer to buy us a round at
your favorite local course.

We'll meet you there, and give you 3 strokes a side.

And win or lose, you can still buy us dinner and drinks
when we finish up our 18 holes.

We look forward to hearing from you all.
