Sol transferring the sandbag and the "you da man"trophy to Neil Messina. Neil shot an 88 with a 25 handicap to earn the trophy. Sol did not keep the trophy long.
Also, Sol mentioned that the sandbag was unusually
heavy and found that someone had deposited a chunk of cement....
A really nice picture of Neil with the sandbag and trophy.
David Barber marveling at a hunk of concrete that was
presented to him by Sol. Sol is pretty sure who put the concrete in the sandbag.
Paul Piotte, with pleasure, passes the Sandbag on to Jim Pachmayer on April 22, 2022.
And here is Jim, in all his glory, with the Sandbag. (Per Commissioner Pace.) "Jim shot an 83 on April 1 (no fooling). Net 63, I believe."
Jim Pachmayer passing the sandbag to John Balais. If my notes are correct John had an 82 with a 20 handicap. (Per: Commissioner W. A. Pace.) May 2022.
John Balais passing the sandbag to Sol. Sol shot a 72 with a 10 handicap. Congratulations Sol.
Commissioner W. A. Pace provided pictures taken by Commissioner Emeritus Jim Remler. There are four pictures from Friday 3/4/2022 covering the sandbag exchange.
One picture shows Paul Piotte and John Balais, one shows John Balais by himself, the next one shows John Balais and Foster Panza, and the last a solo of Foster.
Paul had the sandbag for only a week or so until John Balais had his great round.
Then Foster had a really good round on the Meadows, on Monday, February 28 and earned the sandbag from John Balais.
Ren Marquette passes on the BGA Sandbag and "You're the Man" trophy to Bob Feldberg on BGA Valentine Day postponed to February 18, 2022.
This was the official "transfer" of the BGA sandbag and trophy from Bob Feldberg to the latest winner, Paul Piotte.
We had another winner on Friday, with transfer to take place at a future date. John Balais had an 86 for a net 64. Congratulations to John.
Here it is, the transfer of the BGA sandbag from Dennis Kudla to Ren Marquette January 2022.
Then Ren with his sandbag and "Your The Man" trophy.
BGA Commissioner Emeritus Jim Remler forwarded a couple of pictures of Dennis Kudla receiving the BGA Sandbag.
The story is that Dennis earned the sandbag a couple of weeks ago with a score of 82, net 62.
Dennis duplicated that score recently on Monday Dec. 13.
So there are two pictures...1) BGA Commissioner W. A. Pace presenting the sandbag to Dennis (he should be presenting the sandbag to himself)
And 2) a picture of Dennis by himself.
We can't remember a previous time where the current
sandbag holder won the sandbag again.....
From Jim Remler, a picture of the transfer of the BGA sandbag to Dennis Kudla.
Picture shows Peter Bockiaro, standing in for Bob Stone, presenting the sandbag to Dennis.
The other picture shows Dennis proudly showing the sandbag.
On Friday Dec. 3 Dennis had a net 63. Dennis had a
really nice round of 83 with a 20 handicap. Nice round Dennis.
And now the transfer of the Sandbag on Friday October 29, 2021, from previous award winner, Ed Ryan, to the new sandbag winner Bob Stone. Bob shot an 80 with an 18 handicap for a net 62. Bob recently returned to Citrus Hills from Michigan. Congratulations Bob.
On Friday September 17 Ed Ryan had a stellar round of golf. Ed had a gross score of 73 with a handicap of 11 resulting in a net score of 62. As a matter of information, Ed (at age 74) shot under his age. Here Ed receives the award from former Sandbagger Stephen Keen.
And this is how Ed reacted!
Stephen Keen shot a 79 with a 16 handicap for a net 63. This tied a career best for Stephen. Stephen had this great score on Monday September 13. This was reported by Commissioner Pace with picture supplied by Commissioneer Emeritus Remler.

"Randy Robertson passes the sandbag to Dave Barber today. June 4, 2021. Dave shot a cool 71. He pared the course and ended up with a net 59. This 12 handicaper lost 4 strokes and now is an 8. That sandbag has been traveling around the last couple of weeks." (Quote from Jim Remler.)
Dave is so happy to be an eight. Look at the expression on his face. (Per Jim Remler.)

ONLY IN THE BGA, RANDY & JERRY
AND JERRY AND JOHN
ONLY IN THE BGA ——————————
MARCH 2, 2020
A new sandbagger was recognized today.
Jerry Krause shot a 79 with a 14 handicap for a net 65. (the new low for receiving the sandbag we thought) Randy Robertson the current sandbagger presented the sandbag to Jerry and Foster took pictures that will appear in an email. Jerry was so proud to receive the sandbag. He couldn’t wait to take it home and show Monica. All golfers were so proud of Jerry receiving the sandbag.
Some golfers had departed and some were getting ready to leave when it was discovered that another golfer had a net 65. This non disclosure was discovered. John Walton shot a 91 with a 26 handicap for a net 65. Captain Jim Brown failed to report John’s score. So the only sensible thing to do was to present the sandbag to the newest sandbagger John Walton. So—— Jerry Krause presented the sandbag to John.
Jerry had the sandbag for 14 minutes 29 seconds —— a record.
Now John Walton was surprised regarding the new low net score qualifying for the sandbag. Claims he did not know the new low net number. The typical response was I didn’t get the email or hear any changes. He knows now. (Have we heard this before?)
SO ALL IS GOOD AND ALL ARE HAPPY.
A new BGA record for having the sandbag was set —— Jerry Krause had the bag for 14 minutes and 29 seconds.
Captain Jim Brown paid a $3.00 fine for not identifying John’s net score of 65. (He will have his picture taken with the BGA poster———DO THE CRIME —— PAY THE FINE)
John Walton is proud to have the sandbag.
ALL IS GOOD IN THE BGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
