2 MO Halloween Game
Kevin Deschamps went
around town one day last week with his girlfriend and had her pose in various
locations. The result: 17 pictures of her in various places. His idea was to
show a small picture of the lady and you have to guess where the pictures were
taken. There are 17 pictures worth 1 or 2 points. If you get even close to 20
points you are doing really good. For you people that have moved away from Two
Mo, you'll get to see a few new things that probably weren't there went you
left. Click on the tab above to play. Get a pen and paper to add up your score.

23rd Annual Happy Gang Golf Tournament
It was a miserably cold day but 63 golfers (instead of the original 78 from the
first attempt 2 weeks ago) competed for the honours. The winners JB's team shot
an impressive 7 under. 5 teams tied at -5 and one more at -4 one at -3 and two
more at -2. All the teams were 'in the money' as organizer Ron Kesseler handed
out the prizes to the 7 top teams. I will have a couple of pictures to post but
it was so cold, I don't remember taking many.
Great Day At Carling
The weather cooperated
as 19 of us made their way to Carling Lake. With no wind to speak of, some of
the golfers went pretty low for this time of year. The closest to the pin prizes
went to Brian(5), Mike G(7), and Bernie(15). Low score 77 by moi. More to come
Make the Long Weekend Even Longer
Here is a lesson on how to make the long
weekend even longer. Take Tuesday off, and come play Carling Lake for $30 with
cart/tax included. That is what is happening on 10-10-2006. So far we have at
least 15 of the 20 spots I reserved taken. Through Can-Am golf there is a great
end of season deal at Carling Lake golf course. Shot gun start is at 10:30 am
and we will leave the Tartan Pub at 9am. Car pooling will be the order of the
day. I will post the confirmed players on Friday. Sent me an e-mail if you are
interested. First come first served unless I can get more spots. Here are the
confirmed people: Me, Mike McK, Brian, Stan, Maurice, Ron, Glenn T, Mike Carp,
Boutch?, Bernie, Earl, Richard, Mike G, Gary C, Darrin. Still waiting for
confirmation from others . If the weather
cooperates it could be a great day. If not some people will have to revert to

Scotty's Got A Brand New Bag - Almost
Finally some news from
Scott Martin. He has left Mark Brooks and has been hired by Notah Begay the
third. There's a whole new update on how this happened. Scott has caddied for
Notah before so I guess Notah's brother is out of a job. Notah is struggling
this year with only 2 out of 9 cuts made, but he is confident that better times
are ahead. I am not sure if he still does this, but other than winning 4 PGA
events Notah is known for putting right AND left handed on the greens depending
on the break.Go to Scotty's page for a full story.

Sean Magill Memorial
My Accu-Paul Forecast - light rain windy.
Better weather than the last 3 Tartan tournaments. Click
here to see for yourself. Never mind. The overnight rain has made the course
too wet to take carts therefore it was decided to cancel the tournament. This
may be a first in the 58 years of this tournament. The meal at the Tartan will
still be served but will be moved ahead to 3:00pm. Ernesto got the best of us
this time, so see you next May.
A Hole-In-One for Wyder Cup Member
August 31, 2006. Team Canada member
Mike Goyetche accomplished
the dream of every golfer by acing a hole in his round at Lachute on Thursday.
Not only was the feat a remarkable one by itself, but it happened on a very
unlikely hole: hole 5 on the Lachute #1 course. What is special about that hole
you ask? It plays all of 222 yards off the regular tees and to hit the green is
a major accomplishment. The staff at Lachute don't remember ever hearing about
an ace on that hole. Mike did it with the only club that he has to reach that
far, his trusty driver. Congrats Mike, I don't know his final score but who
cares? Actually it was a very good 78. Click
here to send Mike an e-mail. Yes, he can read and he now has entered the
computer age. By the way, there were 3 witnesses Bernie, Serge and Richard. They
also witnessed all the free beer that Mike bought after - not. Here
is a picture of their foursome - sort of.

Tartan Fall Classic Almost Here
August 23, 2006 - I
really hate to say this but we are only 10 days away from the unofficial end of
summer. Not really, but it seems that after Labour Day everything goes downhill.
On the bright side, we are closer to the start of next summer. No matter, it's
time to sign up for the September 3rd Sean Magill Memorial Golf Tournament. The
sign up should be posted at the Tartan soon. Sorry if the Wyder Cup has taken
from row center on these pages but that's mainly due to work which has been
taken up way too much of my time, with no end in sight. This week my visit
counter did hit 1 third of 100,000 visits. That's in 20 months. Thanks for your
support and keep visiting. There's some big news coming up in the next month or
two so come back often.
A lot of people have commented on my welcome page that some of you skip by book
marking this page and wonder where these pages go. Frankly these 'splash pages'
are just replaceb by doing a save over the old one. But I have kept the originals and I am
providing you with a link to see them. These pictures or montages are
usually seasonal or topical or sometimes just stupid. Click

Days to Wyder
August 16, 2006 - Still
another scratch on team USA. Artie (Abdelahad) has had to pull out of the
competition. Yet another Canadian has been recruited for the Americans. No other
than junior golf champion Ron Potter will be donning the Red White and Blue to
battle the Canucks. Although a little nervous about the yipps, Ron has
agreed to fill Art's shoes for the 2 day competition. The final pairings are
hopefully final, although there may be some changes tomorrow as Team Canada
meets at the Tartan (at 7pm). It looks like there may be a few US'ers that will
also be joining the team Canada meeting. Also, right after Friday's round, the
Team USA bus will be heading to the Tartan for a snack and a few malt
August 14, 2006 -
Another scratch on Team USA will have Team Canada move at least 2 players to
back to the Minutemen. The final line-up will be made official on Tuesday
evening, so stay tuned. The first tee-off time on Friday will be at 7:00am. A
Thursday practice round has been arranged by Ron F. There are still a few spots
around 9am. Call Ron to book one of them. Saturday's action will start at noon
on both courses. The Ladies' Wyder also tee-off at noon. There will also be an
unofficial Team Canada meeting at the Tartan on Thursday night around 7pm. A
curfew will be enforced due to the early tee-off Friday morning.
Come back Wednesday to see the team line-up and pairings.
Friday Pairings are now in posted follow the Wyder Link.
Friday Wyder Cup
The venue for the 1st round of the WC has once again been changed. Not only the
venue, but the tee-off times have been moved ahead so that we can all finish on
the 18th hole. Our new venue is le Cardinal which is also hosting our Saturday's
round. This year, the men's competition is up to a high of 30 players per team.
That's up 10 from last year and a new record. We are expecting 100 people
for the banquet on Saturday evening. Initial team line ups are posted. Go to the
Wyder Cup link on the left. For those who did not get my e-mail, the official
team Canada practice and qualification round will be held at Cardinal on Friday
August 11 at 8:00am. Contact me for more info.
Here are the confirmed players for the practice round.
Picture of the Month
am starting a new feature called my picture of the month. It will be available
by clicking the POM logon on the top. Remember all logos on my menus are
clickable not lickable. Did you know that lickable is not a word? Yet I know
many things that are lickable. Let's start a petition to Webster to add that in.
As usual I digress. I have allowed myself the use of the POM bakery logo for my
new feature. Some of you may not know that POM is an acronym for Pride Of
Montreal (now you know) but in my case will be Picture(s) of the Month. I didn't
like POTM. Anyway, hopefully every month, I will take a picture that is worth a
click. This month's was taken on the Oka ferry on the way to the Hudson Theatre.
If you like dogs, I think you will like it. If you like cats, go to the bottom
of that page.
Do You Have Your
If you are reading this
you the answer is probably yes or you don't live in Two Mountains. Last night,
we were hit with a violent storm that knocked out power to most of 2 Mo. We
didn't have it for 23 hours and the neighbours still don't have it. Most of Oka
road is still out including the Tartan, the pool hall and the Pleine Lune. No
bars in downtown Two Mountains. What to do? Anyway, the weather's been quite
something this year and last night was especially bad. Our little sector took
quite a beating. Many trees down. 2 of the 3 ways out of here were blocked. A
wire in the middle of Lakebreeze and a tree across Crescent. Click
here for a montage of
some of the damage.

Fitzmorris Turns 30
Say it ain't so, Joe
celebrated his 30th birthday on the 30th of July. He gave himself a surprise
party on Sunday the 30th. Yes Sunday at
where is is gainfully employed. The surprise was how many people showed up on a
Sunday or how many people don't have to work on the Monday morning. Commissioner
Joe was impressed by the turnout including many people that traveled a long way
to celebrate with him. I was one that couldn't stay around for the festivities
as I was working early Monday morning. Nevertheless I did get a few pictures
that you can see by clicking on Joey's picture
on the left.
Happy 1st Anniversary
to Café Lola!
Next weekend, August 5 to be exact, is the 1st anniversary of Café Lola on Oka
road in Two-Mountains. The very successful venture opened a year ago by
Cathy Rickert and Kate Baldwin
has attracted many people. The quality of food and service is exceptional and
you'll always bump into friends when visiting. Keep up the good work and we wish
you many more years of excellence. Flashback to opening
Annual Hot Dog
Tournament Just Days Away
Many of you are familiar with the Annual Tartan
Hot Dog golf tournament. Actually this tournament precedes the Tartan by many
years and has been a long standing tradition. It has been held every year to
celebrate the summer break mostly from Canadair people however it has spread to
many others by now. It has always been on the first Tuesday of the break (this
year, July 18th). It is called the 'hot dog' as the golfers traditionally
returned to their favourite drinking hole (the Tartan) to scoff a couple of hot
dogs and down a couple of beer to celebrate the 'real' start of summer. This
year there is a twist as instead of playing the local course (Deux-Montagnes),
we have a special deal with cart at the
Falcon. The cost will
be $45 plus $5 for a little cash prize for the winners at the end. Unofficial tee-times and foursomes
here. Please wait until Monday night for tee-time and foursome
confirmations. Registration is now full. Carpools will leave the Tartan starting
at 6:45 for the earlier times.
