As many of you get the paper on Saturday, June 27 is the day for the 15th Annual Langdon Area School Foundation Charity Golf Tournament. As the time of this writing, 22 four person teams, or 88 golfers were set to participate this year, with all proceeds going to the betterment of Langdon schools.  Hats off to all the foundation board members who worked hard once again this year to make this event another big success.  This is the last tournament at the Langdon Country Club until July 7, when the Langdon Men’s City Tournament will be held.  This event is being held on a Thursday for the first time to hopefully get more participants, as numbers have been dwindling for the tourney the last couple of years. This starts a run of no less than six tournaments in the month of July, which is no doubt the clubs biggest month of the season.  Hope everyone can get out and enjoy the beautiful weather we are having and take a tourney or two.  The course is looking just awesome with the sunshine we’ve been getting.

July 1 is a big Munich baseball day

Wednesday, July 1 will be a big day for hardball in Munich.  Both the Langdon Babe Ruth and American Legion Baseball teams will be in action at Edgar Westphal Field hosting Cando.  The Babe Ruthers will play a doubleheader at 3:00 p.m., followed by Legion ball at six. Hopefully the baseball tradition rich community of Munich will come out cheer on both teams.  Summer baseball and softball is taking on more of a county look each year, and everyone is looking to a fun day at the “Ed”  on July 1.

Happy 4th of July

We wish all of our many readers and subscribers a very happy and safe Independence Day.  We will be spending it in “God’s Country”, or Williston, where it be my 30 year class reunion (Yes, that’s right, 30!!).  My class had 250 in it, so it should be a pretty big crowd attending.  We are also setting up a “Class of 85” band, with old friends I haven’t seen of played guitar with in over 20 years. That should be interesting and a heck of a lot of fun.  We will talk to you again after the holiday weekend.

“See ya!” next week!
