On April 29, the BMC revived a tradition that was suspended last year due to the pandemic: the New Member/ Board Member Event. Altogether thirty-five new members teamed up with current and past board members to play Braemar’s Front 9 and get an introduction to the Club. It was a fine spring afternoon, although northerly winds were at gale-force. Among the highlights, new member Rick Pollock was able to card a 38. Bombers Ryan Vaterlaus, Kris Sveum and Matt Forsman demonstrated the ease with which our par fives can be reached in two but struggled with the early season lack of speed to convert their birdie putts. BMC Secretary Tim Smith, who accompanied the trio, declined to assist with reading the greens, observing that the new guys should learn to read the greens by themselves.
