ALBUQUERQUE U-PICK-EM PLAYERS

Congratulations to Kate Dwyer, this year's U-PICK-EM Albuquerque Champion.  She finished just out of the money on the regular U-PICK-EM Contest but took the prize as the top finisher in the Albuquerque group.

These folks from Albuquerque take U-PICK-EM seriously and this is a high stakes game.  They all pitch in $5 at the beginning of the year and they split the pot between the first and second place winners at the end of the year.

Note the very handsome award plaque in the photograph.  It says U-PICK-EM Albuquerque Champion and Kate's name is engraved as the third winner.

Sandy Kruse, in the back row towards the left, is the one who got U-PICK-EM started in Albuquerque.  She is good golfer and was a club champion when she played more seriously.  She started playing U-PICK-EM in 2004 and has gotten more and more people to play it over the years.  It looks like they have a really fun group.

And by the way, we have a gathering of the Phoenix Southeast Valley U-PICK-EM players every year.  And since the Commissioners are from Minnesota, the top finisher in that group always gets a highly coveted can of Spam, from Hormel Foods in Austin MN.
