"YA-YA WEEKEND" ST. AUGUSTINE FLORIDA APRIL 4-6, 2008

The weekend of April 4-6, 2008 Ann Phillips, Joanne Mockus, Diane Beland, & Jorja Briggs got together in St. Augustine Florida for a Ya-Ya Weekend. 
 
Diane flew down from Newburgh NY to Orlando, rented a car and drove over to Titusville FL where she picked up Ann Phillips and drove up to the Holiday Inn on the beach in St. Augustine.
 
Jorja Briggs drove down from North Tennessee to Joanne's house in Chattanooga and they then drove the 8 hour 500 miles to St. Augustine.  We met up with Ann & Diane at 5:00pm on Friday.
 
We enjoyed a tasty dinner at The Creekside restaurant on the marsh that evening.  We then stayed up until late just chatting and catching up on what has been happening with each of us.
 
The next morning we had breakfast at The Oasis resturant, a beach hangout for the sun lovers.  We sat on the upper open air deck and had eggs and coffee...chatting nonstop!
 
Next we headed for downtown St. Augustine and St. George Street where all the interesting shops are located.  We had our "Old Time Photo" taken of the four of us in a saloon setting complete with guns and period dress.  We had a ball doing it!  We wandered the shops and lunchtime we ate at The Columbia Resturant on St. George Street.  No need to say that the food was great. 
 
We explored some historic buildings and heard some history and folklore by taking the tour train around the city.
 
That evening we had dinner at "Harry's" in the downtown right on the bayfront.  It serves New Orleans style food and we sat out under the trees in the garden area.  It looked like it was going to rain and it did, but not until we were finished and in the car on the way back to the hotel....we were lucky like that all weekend.  We did get to have a short walk on the beach before the rain.
 
That night, our last night, we enjoyed wine and chatted into the night.
 
We got up early Sunday morning as Diane had an 11:30 flight back to NY.  We left the hotel by 6am and did stop at the Flying J truck stop at the I95 exit for breakfast then we were all on our way to our home destinations by 7:30am.  The truck stop is relatively new and the food was really good....a great final touch to a memorable weekend.

"THE DUKE III" 2010 INVITATIONAL GOLF

 
 
Thanks, Tom, so very much for your always erudite – as well as comprehensive recapping (which appears below) of the recently-completed Duke III extravaganza.
In the space of a compendious 3,718 words – incidentally, only a mere 3,440 words more than contained in the entire Gettysburg Address, I believe you have provided for all of us who were not in attendance the full stroke by stroke, blow by blow consummation as it were experience of what it was like to have actually been there.
And while your integrity is -- and has never been other than unquestioned even one scintilla (after all, tributes such as “The Pisarri Cup” are not bestowed in the name of anyone of any lesser stature) – and in echo of the thanks and appreciation of and for all of the wonderful and extensive effortings that you, along with “Billy-Duke” Getler as he is now known in such southern climes, made to arrange for and organize this wonderful -- and now thrice annual event (read: "hootenanny"), you are, truth be told, a competing RiverValian -- and harking back to that which my own dear ol’ Dad would often ask me growing up “have you ever seen a one-sided coin?” I think we all are looking forward to hearing, or reading as it were, the Hillsdalian side of that proverbial coin…
So while I was, regrettably, unable to do so in person at The Duke III, with this I am here and forthwith teeing it up for our own Capitaine Carmine Iadarola, the Hillsdalian Commander in (Mis)Chief…(who's "version" also appears below)

THE DUKE I" GOLF TOURNAMENT July 16-19, 2008

(As inimitably chronicled by Tom (‘Grisham-Runyon”) Pisarri) The inaugural Duke is in the books!  Despite a last minute cancellation, a calendaring mistake by Carmine, a 2 hour wait for dinner at Damon's Grill, a tropical storm that sat just off the coast and a stalking raccoon, The Duke was a rousing success! The culmination of The Duke was a spirited, Saturday afternoon, 5 man team scramble between Hillsdale and River Vale. With Bear, herniated disc and all, captaining the Hillsdale team of Howie , Steve , Randy and Carmine, Hillsdale came to the 18th hole 3 under. The 18th at Duke's home course of Black Bear is a 533 yd 3 shot par 5 with agua the last 200 yards on the right up to and in front of the green The 3rd shot in most cases is a sweaty palm, knee knocking  pitch of about 60-80 yards over water to a small green. After 2 solid shots and a great big sigh of relief pitch by Steve K to the green the Hillsdale team was poised to make a finishing hole birdie. The opportunity to make a 4 wilted slowly as one by one the putts of Bear, Steve Randy and Howie missed their mark. Things looked bleak when they realized they were down to their last putt. For some then unknown and befuddling reason (except to Carmine) the Hillsdale team left their fate to none other than Cobra. When he played with me earlier in the Duke he could not find the bottom of the cup from 2 feet much less make this 18 foot, down the hill slider. After hearing Howie mutter under his breath, something like, "who's putting? Oh s--t!", and Randy saying a quick mantra dedicated to the Mahareshi, the golf Gods and of course Carmine, with Steve thinking,  "you better not mess up my great pitch!" and Bear thinking how his team would be remembered if the putt was missed, Carmine, checked the line, stepped up to the ball, gave it one more quick look, closed his eyes and stroked his last putt of the Duke. AS the ball found its way down the hill oscillating back and forth as it went Hillsdale was silent.  The silence was broken by the sound of surlyn striking metal at the bottom of the cup! The roar from the Hillsdale 5 was deafening and heard by the RiverValians negotiating the treacherous 17th. Hi 5s were exchanged in an nauseating number as the Hillsdale retreated to a perch above the 18th to watch The RVers play 18. In the scramble format Duke was chosen to hit last from each location. We chose to use his last drive of the day as he drove it to the top of the hill leaving a long second shot that would parallel the water hazard. As we prepared for the second shot the Duke gave a quick pep talk. He mentioned something about remembering when we were in gym class and Ron Cherkin talked to us about.....  Lumpy quickly put an end to the less than Lombardi like story and proceeded to hit his ball into the water...... as did Bill Holler..... and as did Ken Jones. Confident that I had not hooked a fairway wood all day and since this was a moment to rekindle some of that old time glory I established my line, weakened my grip just a tad, pulled back and promptly hooked it into the water!!!! As the Hillsdale team exchanged more hi 5s watching this Normanesque meltdown, only one was left standing. The Duke. Il Capitan. With no comment and just a look that said, "I've got this", Duke took one last drag of his cigarette, maneuvered the butt between his thumb and middle finger and flicked it nonchalantly to the ground, exhaled a little puff of smoke out of the side of his mouth and took out his trusty hybrid. He adjusted his sunglasses and just before he drew back the club you could see a hint of a forward press. After a quick pause at the top,  he proceeded to hit a tiger like stinger that started right . . . over the water and turned gently to the left settling in the fairway about 75 yards from the pin. The RVers order throughout the match for all strokes except putting was: Bill H, Bill L, Ken, me then Duke. With the Hillsdale team hooting and hollering, Bill H took aim at the green and with a workman's like stroke hit the green and landed about 25 ft away.  Suddenly the hooting and hollering stopped. Next was Bill L. Never one to keep anyone waiting Bill quickly chunked one. A derisive round of applause wafted from our 5 adversaries. The applause continued as Ken duplicated Bill's shot. As I stepped up to the ball I had 1 thought. If I miss this shot I might never live it down. As I choked the club I could hear the silence. The gods (or God depending on your religious affiliation) were with me and I hit a ball to about 15 feet above the hole.

        As we walked onto the undulating green, the Hillsdale team clearly broke local rule 22(b) which clearly states, " . . . During a match, no opposing player not playing in the group playing the hole may approach the green and hoot and holler at the opposing players in a juvenile or childish manner in an attempt to distract the other players or cause them to lose focus and miss a putt". As the RVers mulled filing a notice of infraction Captain Duke said, "let's just sink the putt and shut them up." As the River Vale team got ready to putt Bill L went first. Bill was our "rabbit" going out first on the putts showing us the line. As long as we did not say "just make sure you get it too the hole" Bill was fine. Of course, if we said that he would smoke it through a break and be of no use. Bill using his putter, aptly named the Enterprise for its uncanny resemblance to Captain Kirk's ride, calmly stroked the ball just outside the break. Next was BigManKen1. Ken, after nearly harming himself over his play the day before, had turned himself around and made some key putts Saturday. As he sized up the putt he noticed although the putt was down hill it was into the grain and there was some Poa Anna amongst the All Climate Bent/Rye grass. As he looked to Bill H for some advice about whether the Poa Anna would affect the putt, Bill in his inimitable style said, "Sorry Ken, I was just thinking about whether we should go to Bottoms Up or Crazy Horse tonight." Finally, as Ken brushed away a small pebble in his line he saw Carmine turn to Randy and heard him say, "Manos de Piedra" and it had nothing to do with his pugilistic prowess. Kenny remembering his Spanish from Mr. Leonard's class and understanding the reference promptly stroked the ball into the middle of the cup - for a 4 - and a tie. One teamed turned silent and the other erupted. The inaugural Duke ended as it should have - in a tie -  and all agreed that it the "Championship" and bragging rights to the Duke would be played out in 2009.

'DAMN YANKEES '67

Damn Yankees
 
   The time was late in our Senior Year--mid March 1967, the venue was the Pascack Valley HS Auditorium; the last winter snows of our High School years were gradually melting away.
 
   As a fitting finale – commensurate in time with baseball’s first “crack of the bat” being the natural harbinger of a hopeful springtime soon forthcoming, the Class of ‘67 produced its final play – appropriately in this instance, the musical “Damn Yankees.”
 
   Donated recently to Our Website by PV’s Bill Getler is its “Playbill” (just how “The Duke” has somehow held onto it for all of these 43 years we are not sure if even he actually knows); however we all do thank him greatly for sharing it again with us and certain that we will all also truly enjoy seeing it once again here.
 
   Reading not only the pages below--but in so doing also seeing the so many familiar names of all its happy, erstwhile and talented participants will thankfully provide us with another melancholic yet also delightful, stroll down our collective Memory Lane.
