Halloween and the Good Old Days

  |   Newsletter

Greetings Golfers,

Halloween marks the middle of the autumnal equinox and the winter solstice. Which means a change in the seasons. And a change at Deer Run GC – closing for the winter.

We might stay open through Sunday, Nov. 3 if the weather looks promising. At the moment, the forecast looks about as promising as the Vikings.

But the weather for this weekend should be pretty good – especially Sunday.

When we were kids, Halloween was my brother Rick’s favorite holiday. It was a great time to be a baby-boomer… the neighborhoods were packed with kids – Halloween looked like New Year’s Eve in Time Square. We would Trick-or-Treat for 3 hours and get enough candy to last until Christmas.

Ah, the good old days. Some things get better – but not everything. I don’t believe that everything has gotten worse – I haven’t turned into that guy. But the future isn’t always better.

Halloween used to be better … and the Vikings used to be better. Ah, the days of Bud Grant and the Purple People Eaters.

Hope to see you before we close.
