The world, as I see it ...

Moline Maroon Football

edgeThe Moline Maroons took on the Dunbar Mighty Men and dominated in both the Sophomore and Varsity contests. While the Sophomores had the offense going from the beginning, the Varsity turned a 1st half defensive struggle into a second half offensive display. Unfortunately the reporter from channel 4 missed all the action as he had to leave to make deadline by 9:10 PM.

The highlight of the evening were the Superfans … they were Off The Hook.

Here are a few photos of the evening.

SHCC Staff Appreciation

edgeThe Short Hills Board and Members hosted a cookout for the staff in appreciation of their great work. Thank you Lynn, Carolyn, Krysta, Gabe, Brian, Tim and staff for all you do for our club. Of course, I captured a few pictures of the event.

SHCC 90th Birthday

edgeEstablished in 1922, Short Hills Country Club is now 90 years old. In honor of the occasion we had a 90th birthday party. Here are a few photos of the evening.

SHCC Club Championship

edgeIt was quite the dog fight. Clay Lee and Adam White battled it down to the final hole of a 36 hole match to determine the winner. In the end Adam White was victorious as our Short Hills Country Club Champion … now two years running.

The match was tied “all square” after the first 18 holes. Then in the second 18 holes Adam White built a commanding lead to be three up with five to play. Clay had a few great holes and battled back to one down with one to play, but ran into some tree issues on 18.

All the while our Club Pro was tweeting the status of the match. At least a tweet a hole. This made it very easy to follow and the current status was always clear. Nice addition this year Brian,

Congratulations to Adam White, our 2012 Short Hills Country Club Champion. Here are a few photos of the Championship Match.
