    Injury update. It is getting as bad as the NFL as our team continues to be depleted. Brad got whacked in his brand new beloved Subaru Outback. Cleanest parts ever scattered about the road. Brad also got hurt, suffering a concussion, an ankle injury and a good deal of soreness. Dan continues his recovery from a nasty infection following an operation. He in now out at Lewis Memorial Christian Village where he is still getting antibiotics and therapy. Dan will be there for a few more weeks. Get back soon boys!

   Congratulations to Laila Leonhardt who recently won the Open division of the Swedish Open. Laila played with our club several years ago for a short time while she was living in central Illinois. Click on her name above to view her Facebook Page to view pictures of her nice trophy and new BG board. Nice to see her playing BG again after a 13 year hiatus. Watch the finals on youtube, great way to learn:
