2018 February 20th: Romeo Invite and Commentary

This is the official announcement for the Romeo Brunch to be held on Friday, February 23rd at 11:30 am on the patio of the General Store.  This week started off with a real chill in the air as a result of a 20 to 25 mile wind off the ocean...........ok, so I am exaggerating slightly.  It is beginning to get warmer starting tuesday and we can hope it continues.  We certainly are seeing the winter visitors from the much colder parts of this country and it is important that we make them feel welcome.   Not many people will talk to these people with such pale skin and tank top tee shirts.  Curt Larson is in town for several weeks and he is attempting to hone his golf game, and experiencing some forms of frustration.  He is a classic example of someone attempting to play with wooden shafted clubs and the feathered golf ball.  We have to introduce him to the new technology before the Walker Open.  Hope all is well with everyone.  Gerry
