A group of senior members at Beaver Creek represented the club in the Maryland State Golf Association Senior Team matches. Last weekend, this group culminated a march through the upper bracket of the state team matches with a victory over Baltimore Country Club, 8 1/2-3 1/2, to claim the championship in the eighth annual MSGA event.

For too brief a time, a star burned brightly in Beaver Creek How many people could sum up their lives in less than 50 loose-leaf notebook pages, and not bore you to death in the process? Not many, I'd have wagered, until I read the writings of Roger Weagly, born on May 27, 1911 at "Cresheim," his family's home in Beaver Creek east of Hagerstown. He has since passed away, but the early years of his life are preserved in a handwritten journal, illustrated with tiny brown-toned photographs.

Chuck Thatcher has been a regular contender for the WACO title in recent years. In 2011, he held the first-round lead before faltering to a 75 in the second round. Last year, he put up a 67 in the second round, following an opening-round 74, nearly netting him the title. This time, Thatcher will be out to connect both ends of the 36-hole tournament and come up with a title in the 30th WACO championship at Beaver Creek Country Club Saturday and Sunday. “My goal is 68-68, I think 8-under would win,” Thatcher said.

Another golf season has come to an end, at least in the time frame similar to the FedEx Cup season. Now, it's time for the Fall Series. At least it is one that I hope I'll be able to get a round or two in before the snow hits. The calendar told some of us that the MISGA schedule concluded with the season-ending banquet. For those who don't know what MISGA is, it is a 50-and-over senior group out of Beaver Creek that plays in mixers at home and at various other member clubs. I've got to pass on a tidbit from the banquet, courtesy of our club rep Terry Gossard, who opened the activities reminding all of us what MISGA really stands for - not really Maryland Interclub Senior Golf Association, but the Memory Is Slowly Going Away group.
