P.O.E.T.S. 2013 Invitational tees off May 31

CROSSVILLE — The ninth playing of the P.O.E.T.S. two-man Spring Invitational will be held on May 31st and June 1st at our Heatherhurst Golf Club.  As always the popular format for the event will consist of 9 holes scramble and 9 holes modified alternate shot on the Crag course on Friday and 9 holes best ball net and 9 holes both balls net on the Brae course on Saturday.  Defending champions from the Fall 2012 Invitational are Joe Barth and Ron Guenther.  Complete details may be obtained by visiting any of the Fairfield Glade pro shops and picking up an entry form.  A valid and active U.S.G.A. Ghin handicap is required for all entrants.

Festivities start with the event check-in and putting contest beginning at 2 P.M. on Thursday, May 30th.  Approximately $500 in cash and prizes will be up for grabs as individuals display their putting skills on the Heatherhurst practice green attempting to qualify for the finals.  Your entry fee for the Invitational includes entry into the putting contest.  Finals for the putting contest will begin at approximately 4:30 p.m.  The finals will be followed immediately by the evening snack and “Rules and Information” meeting on the Heatherhurst patio.  Limited liquid refreshments will be available all afternoon as all enjoy the “badgering” and camaraderie of fellow participants.

All teams will use the White tees.  First round of play is on the Crag course on Friday and consists of 9 holes scramble and 9 holes modified alternate shot.  The second round of play is on the Brae course on Saturday and consists of 9 holes better ball net and 9 holes both balls net.  All play is by flight based on handicaps and approximately 8 teams will be in each flight.  Entries will be limited to 72 teams.  Certainly, as in the past, the last 9 holes of play will probably “tell the tale” for teams competing for the top spots.

Handicaps for all play will be determined using currently active GHIN handicaps (required).  Handicap for the first round of play for the team will be determined using 60% of the lower index of the twosome plus 40% of higher index of the twosome and then taking 50% of that sum. Second round of play uses individual indexes.  All indexes used are then located on the course slope chart and handicaps established.

The P.O.E.T.S. Golf Club is most thankful for past sponsors.  Cumberland Eye Care has agreed to continue their sponsorship and the P.O.E.T.S. are expecting many of their past sponsors back and also welcome all who would like to participate in sponsoring of our events.  Please contact the P.O.E.T.S. Golf Club of Fairfield Glade if you are interested (Mr. Pat Gruet, 707-7582).

Grab your partner and submit your entry form prior to the May 18th, 2013 deadline as you certainly don’t want to wait to very long as the field of 72 teams is expected to fill fast due to the popularity of the event.

  • County residents urged to vote

    Cumberland County has around 39,000 registered voters, as well as a strong reputation for voter participation.  However, as of press time on Tuesday, only 4,300 residents had taken advantage of early voting for the Aug. 7 primary and general elections. Local officials are predicting less than 50 percent of registered voters will cast their vote in the 14 days of early voting, plus election day. Only 23 percent of registered county voters participated in the May elections.

    No one can get away with telling Naiad Kuhlman of Crossville that age is a barrier to exercise. The avid runner, personal trainer and instructor at Cumberland Medical Center’s Wellness Complex at Fairfield Glade won’t buy the excuse.

  • Enjoying nature.jpg Get your mink coat on the road

    It is interesting what animals you see crossing the roads sometimes. When animals cross roads, you can get a look at them, that wouldn't be possible if they stayed inside the cover of trees or grass. Sometimes, it is just a fleeting glance and you aren't sure what you saw. When you go into the woods looking for animals, they usually hide or leave the area before you even know they are around. But, roads are wide open with no cover. Also, most mammals are nocturnal, so they are out when we aren't. Anytime that I am on a two-lane road at night, I am always watching intently for wildlife in the headlights.

  • Abacus Column: Tennessee the third most corrupt state in the U.S.?

    According to a recent article in Time magazine, Tennessee is ranked third among U.S. States in political corruption. I am not sure how they measure such crime in order to make such a charge. Does some purveyor of statistics identify the number of elected officials proved guilty in a court of law; or merely charged with corruption?

  • A Time 4 Paws celebrates pet adoption after 3 1/2 years

    Three and a half years ago, a local no-kill animal welfare organization known as A Time 4 Paws (AT4P) received an important email. A Nashville animal shelter volunteer asked if AT4P could take two severely abused English Pointer mixes. The email said they didn't want to take back two dogs they had placed in foster care for fear they would have to kill them.
