July 2007

The 33rd Western States Golf Tournament was held in California during the last week of April. States in attendance were Montana, Nevada, Utah and California. Excellent weather and time to socialize and renew old friendships were enjoyed by all.

A social gathering was held at the on Tuesday evening at the residence of Naomi and Tom Wehri and all told of the passed years travels, grand children, and activities. Golf at the Turkey Creek and Teal Bend courses were held on Wednesday and Thursday. No one knows for sure how many golf balls were lost in the old rock quarry at Turkey Creek but it sure was an excellent view and setting. All enjoyed the 2 days of golf.

Attendees were Jerry and Phyllis Richards (Washington), Mr. and Mrs. Norm Priest (Utah), Merlin and Linda Nelson (Montana), Jerry Hubathka (Nevada), Gene and Mary Audreuccetti, Larry and Jo Mills, Ron and Carolyn Schultze, Dan Toan, Paul Chen (All Californians). Winners were Low Gross Men - Larry Mills; Low Gross Women - Jo Mills; Low Net Men - Ron Schultze; and Low Net Women - Mary Andreuccetti.

Based on the feed back from all past years attendee’s and discussion it was all hoped the next get together could be scheduled for the summer of 2008. A location for the event has not been selected as attendees from the states of Idaho, Oregon, and Arizona could not attend. Any state interested in hosting the 2008 event should contact Tom Wehri, e-mail tnwehri@surewest.net.
