League-Brewer South 4/1/2014

FYI: Due to Brewer's current flooded condition, the South will not be played in its entirety tomorrow evening. Holes 3-5 have a river flowing through them. With that said, please skip south 3-5 and play holes 1,7, &8 of the north. I realize there will be more walking involved, but I think it will be well worth it. Thank you all for your time. :-) Rick
