On The Trail With Mark

April 10, 2019

Yesterday, I hiked with Mark Scott. We did the Bogart Murray Hill Loop. We finished as the heat was building and well before the dust storm showed its ugly face.

Here’s Mark at the top of Murray Hill just before being stung by a bee. The guy at the other table was stung also. “They came out of nowhere” was the unanimous utterance.

The Other Dave

March 30, 2016

Dave Hamada has to be the top fan of the LPGA. With 77 tournaments under his belt as a volunteer (add one more for this week). Starting back in 1984 at the Women’s Kemper Open at the Royal Kaanapali course, Dave has traveled throughout the country following his passion.

I’m staying with him this week along with Bully. Bully is cooking and I installed a new router and attempted to fix some stuck vertical blinds. I’m batting .500.

Here are just a few of the mementos of Dave’s participation.

Bully and I hooked up with Mark Scott at La Casitas Restaurant Sunday evening. For three hours we chatted, drank and ate.
