Have you reached a fitness or weight plateau? Do you continue to exercise and seem
to get little or no results? Maybe you have reached a plateau. A plateau is only natu- Tuesdays

This event is a great time! It’s almost full contact golf
as your competitors egg you on, sometimes in your
backswing.

Two-person teams alternate their shots while the high-
scoring teams are eliminated on each hole until there
are only three teams left. Out of those three teams,
we will award a “Win” (1st Place), “Place” (2nd Place),
and a “Show” (3rd Place). Serious golfers should
leave their sensitive side at home for this event; we
like to have fun!
