    Not sure what it was exactly, but a few years back Juel Dubs was probably the most fun weekly event that I can remember... perhaps it was the anticipation built up from the hour drive through rush hour traffic, then showing up with just minutes to spare, finally able to get out of my car!!... jog around a few holes and take a few warm-up pufts.. giddy as hell!!


    Then the Clark brothers started running it, so I boycotted it (they were using marked cards I heard)!!
    Actually, my softball team switched to Wednesday nights, so I was unable to play most of the time. We're back to the Thursday night league, so I will definitely show up more this year...

    Oh, and the course changes get my stamp of approval... if only more courses would 'reverse direction' and become more dog-leggity-right.

    <shouldn't this be under 'weekly events'?>

      I actually think there were people that believed the cards were marked or rigged in some way shape or form. The simple truth is, I was the only one that had a deck of cards with me. There was a stretch where Kenny and I were paired up 3 weeks in a row. I can understand that looking a bit fishy. I even had someone else draw my card for me one of those weeks! I too am looking forward to playing Juel again. I've only played 2 rounds on the new layout.

        There was a bit of disconcertion aboout the Clarks getting teamed up all of the time, but if you look at the laws of averages and the low turnouts, the chances were that at least two of the Clarks would be paired up (and win) on most any given week. One of my goals here is to make this event much more popular. Let's get some PLAYERS out there and make this competitive!
        I have been talking with a potential sponsor and am trying to get a big prize together for any team that scores a minus 19...

          Ever since I took over Terrace doubles, the last 5-6 months, Wayne and I have never been paired up together, not even in the same group. Week after week where the number of players dwindled down to less than 7 or 8 we still couldn't even get in the same group, yet my dad and I last year during Lake Stevens doubles were paired as partners at least 5 times when the number of people who showed up were 20-30. It happens, it doesn't mean the cards are marked, I can't say for sure at Juel but weird pairings just happen that way.
          Sometimes my mind boggles. It's so deep my mind actually boggles.

              The cards were definately not rigged.
              ..can anybody claim a -18 on the old course? I know -17 quite a few..

                It was a joke about the cards being marked... hadn't heard about any card controversy... purely coincidental, but conveniently convoluted.

                Josh H. and I shot a -16 once, and we missed 35 and 20 foot putts to begin and end our round... of course we hit some sick putts in between though...

                  Maybe their needs to be two pools experienced and not. first the experienced all draw cards return them, reshuffle. then not so draw from the same cards. That way no experienced can be grouped together

                    The problem is getting an equal amount of players in each pool, and it would probably be difficult to avoid controversy and delays in determing which pool certain players belong in...

                      Random draw is random draw. The idea here is to get a lot of people out to play. Hopefully by having a larger parking lot and a runnung ace pot we can accomplish this.
                      The more people we get out there, the more random it will be.

                        In that case i guess you will just have to get 2 aces...

                                Only ten folfers showed up, but that was enough to have a fun time in the sun. The Juel Swirl was in full effect and that helped keep the scores in check. The winners, KBK and Bill Clark, shot a -11 There is now $10.00 in next week's Ace Pot
