Something’s fishy (L to R) Joe Stribley, Yellowstone CC, Billings, Mont., with Golfdom’s Clark Throssell, Ph.D., and Seth Jones on a recent fly-fishing trip on the Big Horn River in Montana. But fellas, where’s the fish?


Tell him what he’s won! Justin Kirtland, Arrowhead GC, Wheaton, Ill., gives David Radaj, CGCS at Green Acres CC, Northbrook, Ill., a pat on the back for being the winning bidder of a 2016 Golfdom Summit Golden Ticket.


The assistant’s lament Golfdom’s Associate Editor Grant B. Gannon and Curtis Keller, assistant superintendent, Illini CC, Springfield, Ill., dream of a magazine and a course they can someday call their own.


Meeting of the minds Lori Russell, executive director, Idaho GCSA, Kevin Hicks, Coeur d’Alene (Idaho) Resort GC, Dave Phipps, GCSAA Field Staff, and Brian Horgan, Ph.D., University of Minnesota, enjoy a beverage at Boise, Idaho’s Red Lion Downtowner.


Going once, twice, sold! On his way to Billings, Seth stopped in Bozeman, Mont., to visit Dane Gamble, Bridger Creek GC, and thank him in person for bidding on and winning the EIFG’s auction of a Golfdom Summit Golden Ticket.


Shooting the bull John Gurke, CGCS, Aurora (Ill.) CC, with Dave Groelle, CGCS, Royal Melbourne CC, Lake Zurich, Ill. We like Gurke because he pens the popular “Bull Sheet” in the MAGCS publication On Course, and we like Groelle because we’re Foo Fighters fans.


We’re kind of a big deal Brian Thompson and Scott Cole of BASF, with Doug Miller, vice president of agronomy, ClubCorp, and “Uncle” David Hay, CGCS, Indian Wells (Calif.) CC, enjoying the nice weather
in San Diego.
