Before moving here in 1992, Lynne and I would attend the Backing it Out and Rolling it Over New Year's Day celebration put on by Dave "Dog" Underwood. You'd "back out" the old year by playing Rosey backwards, and then "roll in" the New Year by having to throw either rollers or tomahawks. (I think you had to putt upside down as well). Dog would always have a big batch of hot spiced rum, which later became a tradition for Ice Bowl that continues to this day. Several people ran it after Dog, including Otto. I ran it a couple of times as well. One year there was snow, which kind of put a hurt on the "rolling it over" portion, and I believe the second round was played down under. And that is today's historical review, subject to the shortcomings of long-term memory.That was for the Roll it back and do it over at rosedale, where you had it backwards and had to roll your first shot. I miss that silliness.
Right, like Otto reads these things.....
Two of my favorite things about winter golf in KC:
* Yaj's DU DuBs
* Playing Rosie backwards on Sundays, with the Vets!!
