U-PICK-EM ALBUQUERQUE CHAMPION
Pictured: Dave McKinney, Norm Churchill, Eileen Shedd, Liz Bass, Kate Dwyer, Terry Dwyer, Sandy Kruse, Mary Evans, and Nancy McConnell. Dennis Mitchell was playing in a golf tournament and not available when the picture was taken.
Congratulations to Terry Dwyer, this year's U-PICK-EM Albuquerque Champion. He passed both Sandy Kruse and Dennis Mitchell in the last week to win the trophy.
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 Terry's name is engraved as the first winner.
Sandy Kruse 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.
